Keira Knightley: Empire Hero Award Winner!

Keira Knightley steps out in a Rodarte lace sequin dress for the Jameson Empire Awards, held at Grosvenor House on Sunday (March 27) in London, England.

The British actress, who celebrated her 26th birthday on Saturday, was honored at the show with the Empire Hero Award (presented by James McAvoy)! Last year’s honoree was Jude Law.

“It was my birthday yesterday, so I want to thank Empire for such a brilliant birthday present; to be made a hero on your 26th birthday is fantastic. I want to thank my agent, who’s here tonight. Also, I’m well up for a birthday snog, so please come and find me on table 14! Thank you!” Keira said in her acceptance speech.

FYI: Keira is pictured inside with model/actress Lily Cole.

  • Casey

    Oh Good God what is she wearing??and her hair is awful. she seriously left the house looking like that? i wonder how many kiss-ass underlings told her she looks fantastic? heh its probably their way of screwing her over-send her out in public looking ridiculous. S*** actress and now s*** style. way to go Keira

  • StarJo

    I thought Keira is quite tall…

  • anon

    keira knightley always looks so boring…

  • Jean

    uh, in the featured close-up her unmade-up face looks very. . . . normal. the dark eye makeup she usually wears really makes a difference. she still looks nice but it is quite a contrast.

    snog [meaning "kiss"] always sounds so strange to me.

  • watch movie trailer

    I have to agree with the others she looks terrible on this pictures.

  • karih

    She looks like a corpse.

  • Annie

    Damn, Keira is a favourite of mine but this dress needs to be burned and her hair needs some conditioner or something.

  • http://adam Sligo lambert ^____^cute

    I never never like her

  • may

    Keira does look somehow old here. I don’t think she’s the kind of woman who ages well.

  • This haircut/style does not suit her… AT ALL.

  • elisa

    she used to be a fashionista always looks gorgeous now she loks like my grandma =(

  • QueenOfTrashin

    LOL! WHAT is she wearing? Her European grandma’s curtains?

  • dawn

    looks like a corpse

  • Justice

    Keira looks very chic here. I like the dress. It’s refreshing to see someone in a frock that isn’t flashing the lady biscuit.

  • jaye

    Yikes! A dress even my grandmother wouldn’t wear. I really wonder what she sees when she looks in the mirror. She doesn’t need a fancy dress, just something that looks looks like it fits her and was made closer to the year 2000 rather than 1900.

  • Super Cool

    i love the shoulder detail in her dress. i love that nude color and it matches to her pale skin. she looks pretty and elegant as usual. it’s not boring, it’s simple. i like simple.

  • Pretty Ka

    @Annie: I agree. I think she might have done her own hair and makeup here, because she looks nowhere near as good as she usually does.

  • Pretty Ka

    It appears she did her own hair and makeup. Goes to show that most people need a bit of profesional help and no one is perfect :)

  • omg

    she looks ugly ehh…

  • kikay

    even the second hand store will reject this clothes that she borrow from a corpse,yuck!!
