We're big Keira Knightley fans, namely because the British actress is unassuming and possesses a low-key style. Even when she's covering the September issue of a glamorous fashion magazine, Keira's all "No, sillies, I'm just a regular gal who hates having my picture taken, I promise!" (You've got to imagine her saying it in a British accent.)

Knightley landed the coveted September issue of Harper's Bazaar UK, snapped by Ellen Von Unwerth and done up in dark, moody fashions by Gucci, Lanvin, Chanel, Balenciaga and L’Wren Scott. But while her dramatic cover pose channels a rather serious style, Keira talks about her own fashion habits with the magazine, especially when it comes to Fashion Week:

This sounds ridiculous but I don’t actually like having my picture taken and I tend to avoid anything where I have that... I would totally sneak in the back! And sit in the back row. I love seeing [the collections] as they were presented. Because it is art, when you see it. And the couple [of shows] that I’ve been to, they were absolutely extraordinary.

A celebrity not preening and jockeying for a spot in the front row? We knew we loved Keira. The star, who's already earning Oscar buzz for her upcoming role in "Anna Karenina," also talks candidly about her hunky co-star Jude Law:

“No wonder he kept that hat on... [the make-up and wig] were the worst. Poor fucker. I’d get to the end of the day, take my make-up and wig off, and I’d look shit. He’d take the make-up and wig off and look fucking brilliant. And everyone would say, ‘Oh yeah! Good-looking man underneath!”

The perfect punchy accessory to go with every girl's basics? A pottymouth. Never change, Keira.

  • Behind the Scenes of Keira Knightley's Cover Shoot

    Having been voted one of the world's hottest, most fashionable young actresses, one would guess that Keira Knightley's wardrobe staple would be something lavish, perhaps designer shoes or a couture gown? No. The 27 year old reveals in the forthcoming issue of Marie Claire that her go to outfit is something rather more basic.
