Anna Karenina Trailer: Costumes, Keira, and More!Jun 21, 2012 @ 12:30 pm
No one works period costuming quite like Keira Knightley! The actress re-teamed with her Pride & Prejudice and Atonement director Joe Wright for another ball gown-filled literary classic-turned-film, Leo Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina, and the trailer just came out! As the titular Anna, a 19th-century Russian socialite who marries to please her family and scandalously falls in love with another man shortly after, Knightley is dressed to impress in satin gowns, strings upon strings of pearls, and tons of fur fit for the sub-zero climate. Each look is the work of costume designer Jacqueline Durran, the same woman behind the extravagant wardrobing details of Pride & Prejudice and Atonement. Watch the full clip above! Tell us: Do you plan on seeing it? Anna Karenina, which also stars Jude Law and Aaron Johnson (of Kick-Ass fame), debuts in theaters this November.
