A usually modest Keira Knightly has posed topless on the latest cover of Allure, wearing an unbuttoned Chanel jacket to reveal her breasts, one of which is allegedly missing a nipple.
With only her right arm to cover her chest, her right breast is exposed, however it appears that the magazine has erased the 27 year old's nipple from the cover, using concealing shadowing instead.
Meanwhile during the interview, the British actress, who is engaged to Klaxons keyboardist James Righton, ironically admits of her smaller cup-size: 'They always pencil in my boobs. I was
only angry when they were really droopy.'

said: 'The anorexic stuff — all of that — it's always going to have
an impact, so I think it did hit pretty hard. Because you go, “Oh, maybe
that's right!” I knew I wasn't anorexic, but maybe my body is somehow

criticism, you go, “Maybe all this is right!” You just kind of want to
hide it all.'

She added: 'I'd hit a wall and needed to step back in order to learn the things I needed to learn.'
In regards to her feminist outlook, she admitted: 'I am a feminist, but I clearly objectify myself – so that right there is a total contradiction to feminist principles.'
