Keira bares all...again (but this time it's for Chanel)

She is best known for appearing in blockbuster costume dramas.

But for Keria Knightley's latest role there wasn't too much demand on the costume department.

The corsets and petticoats of Pirates of the Caribbean and Pride and Prejudice were eschewed in favour of a handful of well-place accessories.

Seated with just a bowler hat and a white shirt to cover her modesty, this is Miss Knightley as the face of Chanel.

Carefully coiffured hair, deftly-applied make-up and jewels draped around her neck, the undressed look for the glamorous shot, advertising perfume Coco Mademoiselle, only went so far.

There was doubtless some pressure on the star to bring a bit of glamour to the shoot.

She is after all filling the shoes of Croydon supermodel Kate Moss, the previous face of the chic perfume.

Miss Knightley, 22, is thought to have a one-year contract worth more than £500,000 to be the new face of the scent, which launched in 2001 with Miss Moss in the spotlight.

At the time the contract was revealed, Christine Dagousset, the executive vice-president of fragrance and beauty, said: "We think Keira is the perfect woman because she is always incredibly alluring and seductive."

Certainly Miss Knightley's first appearance for the fashion house is alluring.

It is unlikely to have caused the young actress any problems in the modesty arena.

Speaking of nudity in films she once said: "I have certain tools. One of them is my body."

She was just 16, when her breakthrough role as Lara in ITV's steamy adaptation of Dr Zhivago required her to strip off for scenes.

When she agreed to strip for 2005 film Domino she described it as "remarkably liberating".

However the slim starlet is not without some body hang-ups.

The Chanel shoot notably hides her bottom. An area of her body that seemingly caused such insecurity that the actress once requested a body double for a film role.

She also spoken of her dislike of her legs and chest, declaring "I don't have any t***, so I can;t show cleavage."

That is one area that appears to have been addressed by Chanel, not withstanding the discretely placed bowler hat.

The normally washboard like figure betrays a hint of curve.

But then the star - who was famously given a digitally enhanced cleavage boost for the U.S promotion material for the film King Arthur - has proclaimed a love of airbrushing.

"Airbrushing is sort of nice and I wish they could do that for me in my everyday life," she said.

However Keira isn't the only celebrity happy to strip off for the venerable old fashion house.

Rocker, hell-raiser and former 'Riot Grrrl' Courtney Love shows she has a softer side.

In this picture taken for the front cover of fashion mag Harper's Bazaar she pokes fun at the recent furore surrounding her appearance at an awards ceremony wearing a 'fake' Chanel dress.

Her stunning appearance is in marked contrast to recent photos where she has looked painfully thin.

She lost 52 pounds earlier this year with a strict diet of shakes combined with minimal fish and vegetables and has joked about having an eating disorder.
