Keira shows us a side of her that we've never seen before as she poses bare-chested for the world's foremost fashion photographer

Keira Knightley is a star we'd usually associate with all-things sophisticated. She's refined, elegant and has a delicate beauty that has won her blushing lead roles in some of the most highly-regarded period films ever made.

However the 29-year-old Atonement (or if you're a noughties aficionado, Bend It Like Beckham) actress has shocked us all by going completely topless in a striking, albeit racy, photo shoot with acclaimed fashion photographer Patrick Demarchelier, banishing her girl-next-door image for good.

The series of shots initially portray Keira as we've come to know her; with minimal make-up with the exception of a smudged smokey eye and a head of full, loosely tousled tresses. However, some of the shots depict a side of Keira that we're way less familiar with. 

Wet hair and sullen, Keira smolders for the camera as she sports some of AW14's most stunning black ensembles.

The shoot, styled by acclaimed fashion stylist Elin Svahn, was commissioned by American magazine Interview and, instead of choosing the September edition cover-star for himself, the editor asked six key photographers to capture a person they thought embodied the term beauty, with each being given their own cover respectively.

We don't know about you but we reckon Patrick made a pretty stellar choice...

The most controversial image hands down has to be the last in the series in which Keira stands completely topless, wearing nothing but tuxedo trousers and lace gloves. Daring doesn't cut it... 

You've got to hand it to Keira, she's definitely got guts to pose for a portrait like that. Obviously Patrick knew we'd turn the job down...
