British actress Keira Knightley says she dressed in head-to-toe Chanel and wore red lipstick every day during the COVID-19 lockdown… And the reason may surprise you.
As part of an interview with Harper’s Bazaar UK for the cover of its July issue, the 36-year-old Pride & Prejudice actress told the magazine that she regularly played dress-up during the pandemic with her eldest daughter Edie, 6.
“We have a trampoline in our garden. We decided we were only allowed to wear dresses on it,” she told the publication.
Knightley added, “I put on red lipstick every day and every bit of Chanel that I have in my cupboard. And my daughter Edie had Chanel ribbons plaited into her hair and fairy wings.”

The actress said that her husband James Righton was allowed to join her and her daughters on the trampoline. But this was only if he wore something from his “array of peacock-colored Gucci suits.”
Knightley, who is also a mother to one-year-old Delilah, said that the ritual was a way to boost morale in the household during a difficult time for everyone. She told the publication’s editor-in-chief; “I thought, ‘What is the point of these lovely things sitting in the wardrobe when it feels quite apocalyptic and scary outside?’ It felt so important to be really happy for the kids!”
She signed a deal to become the face of Chanel’s Mademoiselle fragrance in 2006, replacing Kate Moss. Since then, Vogue reports that she has become a renowned ambassador for the luxury fashion house; fronting their Rouge Coco lipstick and Coco Crush fine jewelry.
