We were just discussing (via Saoirse Ronan) actors who have Period Piece Face vs. Modern Face, and Keira Knightley is basically, to me, the president of The International Association of Period Face Performers. She never looks as natural in jeans and a scrubby hat, to me, as she does as Elizabeth Bennet, so it’s little wonder she showed up at this as if she’d just wandered out of a Jane Austen novel. Since everything even remotely old is either new or serialized again, Joe Wright can use this to dream up a Pride & Prejudice sequel in which Lydia decides she’s a fashion designer, and forces Lizzie to wear a wedding dress that looks like a consolation prize at the local livestock fair and garden party. It’s going to be so fun when she and that lout Mr. Wickham go bankrupt.
