Move over Emma Peel! Keira Knightley channels The Avengers in a slinky catsuit for her new Chanel ad

By Daily Mail Reporter

Beige beauty: Keira Knightley donned a form-fitting beige suede jumpsuit to film a new advert for Chanel in Paris this morning

Perhaps Keira Knightley should be adding Avengers character Emma Peel to her acting resume.

The actress seemed to be channelling the legendary spy character as she filmed a new Chanel advertisement in Paris.

Even in an unflattering beige motorcycle helmet, the star looked stunning in the figure hugging beige catsuit and matching boots - designed by the revered fashion house.


Trusty steed: The actress sat astride a stunning vintage Ducati motorbike which coordinated with her outfit


And the 25-year-old looked like she was concentrating hard as she mounted a matching vintage motorbike for this afternoon's shoot.

The actress has been the celebrity face of the French Fashion House since 2006.

Diana Rigg played Emma Peel from 1965 -1968 in the spy-fi TV show which revolved around the adventures of impeccably dressed British secret agent John Steed (Patrick Macnee).

Knightley will next be seen alongside Carey Mulligan and Andrew Garfield in sci-fi drama Never Let Me Go.

The film, based on the dark novel by British author Kazuo Ishiguro, tells the story of three children, Ruth, Tommy and Kathy, who grow up together after attending the same boarding school.

The movie sees Knightley adapt a more low key look to play Ruth, something which director Mark Romanek says was tricky.


Slinky: The actress looked stunning in the unforgiving look and uncannily similar to Avengers actress Diana Rigg who starred as Emma Peel - in her iconic leather catsuit - in the 1960s spy drama

'It was difficult,' he said. 'She was eager and happy to do it because the role called for it.

'But even at her worst, Keira still looks astonishing.'

The highly-anticipated movie will be released in the U.S. in October and will hit UK cinemas shortly afterwards.

Knightley's other forthcoming film, the romantic drama Last Night, will close the Toronto Film Festival later this month.
