Keira's 'cool new Chanel commercial'

Keira Knightley's character is "toying" with a man throughout the Coco Mademoiselle advertisements.

The 28-year-old actress is the face of Chanel's iconic fragrance and her third advertisement for the scent has just been released.

It sees Keira dressed in white at a party full of guests wearing black and drawing in the attention of a male suitor. As he approaches her standing on a staircase Keira holds up a small bottle of Coco Mademoiselle, which she drops for him to catch.

However, when he turns around to look back at her she has moved to the other side of the room before disappearing in a cloud of sparkles. It ends with the handsome man walking outside over the river Seine in France only to see Keira riding off in a speed boat.

The British beauty loves the power and confidence her alter ego holds and the mystery behind her romance.

"The first movie was very red and a lot of mirrors, the second one was very gold... I think what's interesting about all of them is she's completely in control, whatever it is. She toys with people, so she was definitely toying with him in the second one and it was all very gold and very sort of lush," she explained to

"The third one is very silver and quite cool, but again nobody can quite capture us. So she's kind of there but she's sort of playing with him... and then she gets on a speed boat! What more can you ask for?"

When asked what her favourite part of the clip is Keira was quick to open up about the final shots. However, she admitted she didn't have any skills when acting out the scene.

"I faked driving a boat, sorry I'm giving it away now!" she giggled. "A speed boat on the Seine, which was great! We got there at about four in the morning or something like that 'cos we wanted to get the sun coming up. Being on a speed boat in the Seine as the sun comes up was a very, very beautiful experience."
