Atonement - Movie Staring Keira Knightley
Gleaming white in the sunshine, it is a reminder of a bygone age.
Not the rubber swimming hat, but the cigarette.
This is Keira Knightley, lady of the lake, as seen on the set of her latest movie, Atonement
Eerily reminiscent of Katharine Hepburn in The Philadelphia Story, the 22-year-old effortlessly achieves the 1930s look in an elegant peep-hole costume.
Miss Knightley plays Cecilia Tallis in Atonement, director Joe Wright's adaptation of Ian McEwan's best-selling novel about a young woman's innocent summertime frolic on her family's country estate.
It has been heralded as the big British period drama of the year and will feature as the opening-night film of next week's 75th anniversary Venice Festival.
There are already murmurings that the movie - which also stars James McAvoy - could be an Oscar hopeful.
