Keira's take on Coco Mademoiselle

Keira Knightley has revealed the kind of woman Coco Mademoiselle is.

The British actress is the face of the French label's Coco Mademoiselle fragrance and also appears in the latest advert. She has described the character she plays in the newest campaign.

"This girl controls everything. She is not a typical 'nice' girl," she told British magazine Hello!. "She likes to play with others, manipulate them. We shot one moment at 4am on the Seine in Paris to see the sunrise. It was sublime. And the music is a song [She's Not There] by British pop group The Zombies, directly from the 1960s. We couldn't have dreamt of a better track for my character: Coco Mademoiselle never seems to be really there. In any case, she is never where you expect her to be."

Keira, 29, isn't just a big hit in the fashion world - she's appears on the big screen in action hit Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit and dark comedy drama Laggies. When she's not rocking a certain style for work, the star likes to play around with her look.

"During filming I am carefully made-up for weeks, so at the end of every film I love to go out and buy nail polish in the most absurd colours and paint my nails with them," she smiled. "Last time I chose yellow - which I don't recommend. I looked like I had nicotine-stained fingers. I won't repeat the yellow experience, but you can count on me to find an even crazier shade next time."

Keira added that she feels "proud" to be part of the Chanel adverts and that she didn't wear any perfume before discovering Coco Mademoiselle.
