Shot on the set of her latest Chanel commercial, these photos of Keira Knightley, a Ducati 750SS and a matching suede jumpsuit represent a motorcycle ideal that we didn’t think possible. It helps that we’re suckers for tall, thin brunettes.
Like the other ads in Keira’s series for Chanel, this is clearly intended to recreate a look from a specific time period. The bike, the colors, the outfit, this is the 1960s. Think a modern, less gender role-challenging than Marianne Faithfull and “The Girl on a Motorcycle.”
The only problem? Keira clearly can’t ride a bike. Fantasy destroyed.
Some nice product placement from Ruby Helmets too.
