Often mistaken for Natalie Portman, it looks like actress Keira Knightley is ready to tackle ethics and morality with her latest Broadway project.

Keira will play the title character in “Thérèse Raquin,” which is the story of a woman who decides to follow her animalistic instincts with total disregard for morality.

Keira joined her costars on the red carpet for the opening night of her Broadway play.

The Official Secrets actress posed alongside co-star Matt Ryan before disappearing into Studio 54 for the showing. Keira’s husband was nowhere to be found. Perhaps they agreed not to have him watch it for its seemingly dark sexual content?

Keira wore a dress by Gucci, which didn’t quite look like Gucci’s trademark, polished ethereal design. The hemline on the actress is a bit longer compared to the runway version. The purple satin pumps didn’t quite help her cause either.

She chatted with TheaterMania about her first Broadway venture, which is an adaption of Émile Zola’s famously unnerving novel. She stars as Thérèse Raquin, the daughter of a French sea-captain and an Algerian mother.

While we’re not exactly fans of Keira’s look here, we appreciate having some pretty daring pairs in our shoe closets and purple or violet pumps pose a serious challenge.

To try the look for yourself, head on over to Zappos or Nordstrom. Some words of warning: be careful not to channel Barney.
