Keira Knightley - "Vogue" September 2008

Keira Knightley -

Keira Knightley is the cover girl for the much-anticipated September fall fashion issue for Vogue.

The cover headline reads that Keira is a “fashion star, pirate queen, history’s sexiest Duchess.” Her new film The Duchess actually opens in the UK on September 5 and in limited release in the USA on September 19.

The 23-year-old British actress last appeared on the June 2007 cover, which was the second-lowest seller of that half of the year. It sold a mere 405,000 copies.

As for the other September cover girls, Penelope Cruz does Glamour, Jessica Simpson does Elle, Blake Lively does Cosmopolitan, and Vanessa Hudgens does Teen Vogue.

oh 1st ?!?! Beautiful her :D

# 3

I was definitely anticipating this. But I ended up being disappointed. The hair is just horrible! It looks like she just shaved it off.

# 4

She looks ok but it is not the prettiest i have seen her

# 5

She’s very beautiful, but the Balenciaga top isn’t very flattering on her. The hair, I won’t even mention…actually, I will…she looks like a newborn ape with that hair!

# 6

EWW! She looks like a boy.

# 7

Keira has a beautiful face, but the cover is just awful. Very disappointing. I was looking forward to this issue and I like Keira.

I don’t really like her hair here but she is a good actress. I liked her with Johnny Rhys Meyers.

She is a good actress, but she’s so whiny. For someone in the very blessed position she is in, she should complain a lot less. Hopefully this interview won’t be another where she goes on and on about how difficult her life is because of her chosen profession–you know the one that enables her to wear designer clothes, travel to exotic places, get her lips injected, have tons of money and lands her on the cover of Vogue. It really is a tough life Keira.

Um, this cover sucks. She looks like she belongs in a 1980′s music video. Terrible.

What is wrong with American Vogue and Anna Wintour? I think Anna has lost it. Keira is a beautiful girl and they could have done a gorgeous cover for her. This does not even look like a September cover. It looks like it should be on the thinner summer issues because those generally sell the least anyways. September’s issue is supposed to be the big seller but there is nothing appealing or intriguing about this cover that would pull people in. Anna needs to quit her day job. She is ruining the magazine.

awful cover

ITA with all you guys about that HAIR, man! Wow….

what in the world is she wearing???? i dont like it!

The September issue is the biggest and most anticipated of the year and they went with this???? I love Keira but they could have done a better cover.

Lola, I couldn’t agree more!!

I agree- this is a different Lola, by the by- that the cover is hideous especially considering the previous covers they’ve done with Keira but I acutally think that the colors might help them out because every other issue will be filled with fall, dull colors and this one is at least different. It grabs my attention, at least. But there is no excuse for that cover. Hopefully the 18 page editorial shot by Testino will be a lot better.

And do you know what is more annoying than Keira “whining”- people whining about her whining! I am so tired of it. Magazines want to sell, and they sculpt their interviews around that. So if she says ONE thing about paps- that is what they will focus on. I feel bad for stars like her who want their privacy. People like Paris and Lindsay are the ones who shouldn’t be complaining.

The photog’s perspective seems a little off. Is it just me or does her head look too big? It’s kind of just an off-kilter pic.

Blah, bad cover.
I’m once again disappointed.

i love keira she’s definitely one of the better actresses in recent years and vogue is a great fashion mag. however this is one of their worst covers ever.

Anastacia @ 08/11/2008 at 4:08 pm

ew! I really really dislike her!!!!!!!! >__<

This will not sell, yet again.

That is the ugliest Vogue cover ive ever seen! Even Kiera’s dress is really ugly! No wonder Vogue sales has gone down so much this year, the quality have suffered.

She has SHORT hair!!! Doesn’t fit her very well i think..
