Mad old aunts puttering around the garden is an English thing, right up there with a weird obsession for tarts and vicars parties.
Letting one of these characters loose on the red carpet is another story.
So, what was Keira Knightley doing dressed as the ditzy relative with the green thumb in Los Angeles?
The actress hit the red carpet on Monday for the L.A. premiere of Seeking a Friend for the End of the World.
She takes chintzy to the next level in a florid Valentino gown—the buds being the best thing to ever happen to this burlap-colored fabric—with taupe shoes and wild wisps of hair escaping a whimsical red leaf headband.
Kind of makes you wish she'd dressed like a tart, instead.
