Keira Knightley has showcased her singing and guitar-playing skills for a new Chanel campaign.

Not everyone will be familiar with the actress' vocal capabilities, unless you've seen her in 2014 romantic comedy Begin Again. But, in a video promoting the brand's Coco Crush fine jewellery, she sweetly sings famed French song, Le Tourbillon de la Vie, the music from François Truffaut's 1962 film, Jules et Jim, originally performed by Jeanne Moreau.

Knightley, a long-standing ambassador for the storied fashion house, pulls out her Chanel guitar from her quilted Chanel case (who knew there such things?) and gently plays while mastering the French accent.

The whole film is a lesson in insouciant Parisienne chic - her hair is pulled back into a messy bun, her make-up is seemingly nominal and she wears a simple ribbed jumper.
