Keira Knightley rocked three contrasting looks while promoting her new movie Boston Strangler in New York on Wednesday.
The 37-year-old Pride and Prejudice actress was the spitting image of chic when she stepped out on the city’s Upper West Side.
Keira plays real-life reporter Loretta McLaughlin, who broke the story of the notorious 1960s serial killer, in the upcoming biographical drama.
For her first press day stop, she donned an off-white two-piece with black accents at the belt and leather-studded heels.
She flipped the look completely for her second appearance in a sleek jet black suit with a white shirt that tied with a fancy bow at the neck.

For both looks, the actress kept her makeup simple, emphasizing her high cheekbones and sharp jawline, while keeping her brown hair loose and straight, aside from a slight wave near the ends.
For the third look, she wore a gray knit jumper paired with a long furry skirt to match.
She increased her height with a pair of black pointed toe heels with a silver bow detail to match her necklace.

The new release is written and directed by Matt Ruskin, while it also stars David Dastmalchian (The Suicide Squad, Dune), Chris Cooper, and Alessandro Nivola.
In real life, the reporter Loretta passed away in 2018 at the age of 90. After discovering the scandal, she went on to become an award-winning medical reporter and the second woman to serve as editor of the Globe’s editorial pages.
“This is a horrifying story of the brutality of the male psyche and how disturbing and horrible it can be, told through the eyes of two women,” Knightley recently said of the film.
“It’s a hard story to tell, because there are so many different twists and turns.”
It comes after the actress said she pushed herself “too much” and felt “caged in” after filming Pirates of the Caribbean earlier in her career.
Keira opened up about navigating fame in a new interview with Harper’s Bazaar UShe and K will also star on the cover of the April issue.

Realizing how much pressure she put on herself in the early years of her career, Keira said, “I was incredibly hard on myself.” I was never good enough. I was completely determined. I was so ambitious. I was so motivated. I was always trying to get better and better, which is an exhausting way to live your life.
“I’m in awe of my 22-year-old self, because I would like a little more of her. And it’s only by not being like this any longer that I realize how extraordinary she was. There was never an ounce of me that wasn’t going to find a way.
The London native rose to fame playing a tomboyish soccer player in the 2002 film Bend It Like Beckham.
Boston Strangler is scheduled to release on Friday, March 17 on Hulu.
