Keira Knightley returns to spotlight to fête Canada-born Erdem

Keira Knightley has been fully absorbed in her latest role, that of doting mom, since giving birth to her daughter Edie last May – but it seems she's ready to step back into the spotlight. The actress made a dazzling appearance at Canada-born designer Erdem's show and after-party at London Fashion Week on Monday (Feb. 22).

The superstar looked showstopping in a silver sequin dress by the designer himself, of course. The sparkling number stopped just short of the ankles and featured a high neckline and subtle floral detailing.

Keira offset the vintage-style dress with a brown smokey eye, loose waves and black ankle boots.

Accompanying the mother-of-one was her husband James Righton.

Keira revealed the name of her baby girl in an interview at the end of last year. The 20-year-old, who prefers to keep her personal life out of the spotlight, opened up about motherhood in a new interview with Elle magazine.

"The love is astonishing," she said of her little girl. "It's a very primal, primal love. That's quite extraordinary. And the ability to have no sleep and continue going. It's not pleasant – I never thought that I could actually do it for the amount of time that I've done it."

The star also revealed that giving birth has had an unexpected bonus: giving her body confidence.

"I have to say, as a woman, you hate certain parts of your body. You go through those periods where you look in the mirror and you think, 'Oh, if only I had different legs or arms or whatever'," she said. "You go through pregnancy and labour and then feeding the kid and you go, 'Wow, my body is totally amazing, and I'm never going to not like it again, because it did this, and this is extraordinary'."
