One of our favorite editorial actresses, Keira Knightley makes a triumphant return in the April issue of Interview, shot by the always dynamic duo of Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. Stylist Karl Templer adorns the British beauty in Louis Vuitton, Yves Saint Laurent, Balenciaga, Céline, Givenchy, Salvatore Ferragamo, Diane von Furstenberg, Chanel and Valentino as she smokes and smolders in the sultry spread. There’s a bit of good old-fashioned 80s androgyny meets Helmut Newton’s stark sexiness happening that fits Keira’s lithe bone structure perfectly. Full spread after the jump, kids.

Love it or hate it, a model has a better chance winning a Pulitzer than landing a U.S. Vogue cover — with a few notable exceptions.

Founded in 1977 by 26-year-old French eccentric Nicole Wisniak while living in her bed at her parents’ apartment and rolled out every few years since, Egoïste finally returns with Keira Knightley on the cover of issue Number 16.

There are, however, a crop of lovely ladies who stand head and collar bone above the pack, due to their talent, their beauty and their sense of style. Of course, one could argue that they all have a team of stylists and professional gays that keep them looking flawless, but you can throw anyone in couture; some sink while others end up doing backstrokes all over the competition. These are the 10 gals who are setting both the screen and red carpet ablaze. Let ‘em burn!
