Keira Brings £1.25m Chanel Jewels to Anna Karenina Wardrobe
Keira Knightly who is also the face of Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle perfume stunned the wardrobe on the set of Anna Karenina with a vast selection of Chanel jewellery. Costume Designer Jacqueline Durran told WWD "Never in my experience on film sets have I seen anyone with such a range of diamonds and pearls”. Knightly who played the title role in Joe Wright's adaptation of Leo Tolstoy's 1877 classic novel is said to have had £1.25m worth of Chanel’s high jewellery at her disposal. All the better Durran concluded, "but I have to say it was very useful for Keira to have at her fingertips all this fine jewellery, as Anna would. It was the aura of Anna Karenina that we were creating". Wright suggest costume look to the Fifites for inspiration to lend a contemporary air to the period piece. Durran who also worked with Wright and Knightly on Atonement drew inspiration from early pieces by Charles Worth and Fifties Christian Dior and Lanvin.
