Keira as the Duchess

Speaking of Keira, she has another new film coming out this fall, called "The Duchess," which stars her and, drum roll, please....the excellent Ralph Fiennes (loved him ever since I saw "The English Patient")! While her other film, "The Edge of Love," looks a tad more enticing based on the trailer, there is no doubt I will watch this, as I'm very interested in the life of the Duchess of Devonshire, Georgiana Cavendish, who was considered one of the first original "It" girls back in the day, known for her fashion, sexual scandals, gambling, know, like Paris Hilton now, only, I think, a bit more sophisticated, and of actual aristocratic blood. :P

Fun fact: Princess Diana is actually a blood relative of the duchess, having descended from Georgiana's brother, George, the 2nd Earl Spencer.

See the trailer below.
