Keira Knightely wore this very Jekyll-and-Hyde dress to the premiere for A Dangerous Method in London yesterday. Â The black and creme dress shares the same principle as the one Olivia Wilde wore to the the 2011 Glamour Reel Moments event — contrast. Perhaps the actressÂ chose the Roksanda Ilincic gown to honor the film’s psychological theme? Dual personalities? That may be a far stretch, but we have to say that Keira totally pulled this off. It’s something not many people could wear, especially with that difficult ankle length. You’d also have to possess the teeniest bottom to even attempt to put this on. Oh wait, Keira’s British — we should be saying “arse.”
A Dangerous Method
When the shoot date for Keira Knightley’s spanking scenes in her upcoming film A Dangerous Method arrived, the Atonement star did what any reasonable person would have done: she started pounding back shots. While talking with The Hollywood Reporter at the Toronto International Film Festival, Knightley admits, “[I did] a couple of shots of vodka — definitely — beforehand, and then a couple of glasses of champagne as a celebration of never having to do that again!” Well, at least until she films the sequel A Dangerous Method 2: Freudian Boogaloo.
Keira originally planned to turned down the role of patient Sabine Spielrein after reading the script, leery of the scenes turning up on YouTube (which they definitely will). After talking with director David Cronenberg, however, Keira eventually came around. “There was a box which he hit, so he was nowhere near me, thank God!,” Keira laughs, explaining how she shot the scenes with costar Michael Fassbender. “I did actually say to Michael before one of the scenes — I was like, ‘I’ve got a security guard outside. You touch me and he’s gonna break your legs!’ And he was like, ‘Keira, you’re tied to a bed. You’re not really in a position to say that.’ I said, ‘I guess you’re right.’” Oh wow, we’re going to need some shots after reading that. Good thing we always have some poured and ready next to our laptops!
Much like Sarah Jessica Parker‘s technicolor dream dress from earlier this week, Keira Knightley’s red carpet fashion at the premiere of A Dangerous Method at the Venice Film Festival today has us at a loss for snap judgments. The gold tulle triggers the fabulousness center of our brains, but the long sleeves and high neck read Little Women. We imagine this is what Gaga would wear if she was some how electromagnetically sucked back through a worm hole and had to live as a pioneer bride. What do you think of Keira’s look? Are we talking the hotness or a hot mess?

If you thought your Intro To Psych was profoundly boring, clearly your instructor didn’t focus nearly enough on the soaking wet nightgowns, spankings and general sexual intrigue of the field. It turns out, the beginnings of psychotherapy weren’t all about smoking jackets and faulty scientific method; they were basically an erotic thriller written by David Cronenberg, as we can clearly see demonstrated by Keira Knightley and X-Men: First Class star Michael Fassbender in the upcoming A Dangerous Method. Fassbender stars as a super hot Dr. Carl Jung, student of Viggo Mortensen‘s historically inaccurate megababe Sigmund Freud, as the good doctor attempts to cure sexy mental patient Sabina Spielrein, played by Knightley, thus giving birth to modern, smoking hot psychoanalysis. The unsound, potentially harmful treatment of psychological illness has never looked so steamy!
