ANNA KARENINA's Keira Knightley looks stunning on the cover of October's Vogue, and she looks even better in the online slide show (along with her co-stars Jude Law and Aaron Taylor-Johnson) with the photos shot by the legendary Mario Testino. Amanda Foreman's article "Poise and Passion" explores Knightley's current life and her unique relationship to transforming cinematic characters through fashion. For example, Foreman speaks with costume designer Jacqueline Durran about her ongoing collaboration with Knightley (with whom she worked previously on both PRIDE & PREJUDICE and ATONEMENT): "As she has got older, Keira has had more input in the detail of the costumes." In ANNA KARENINA, Knightley explains how they wanted to give "Anna the look of a crumpled sheet. So we wanted a fabric that could be made to seem like a bed that had been slept in."
