Keira Knightley’s Wedding Dress

keira knightley wedding dress

On Saturday Keira Knightley got married to her fiancé of one year, James Righton, in an intimate ceremony. The ceremony took place in Mazan, a small village in Provence. It was quite a low key affair, as you can see from her wedding look. She looked beautiful in a strapless, knee length, tulle dress with a classic Chanel jacket. She paired it with nude flats and wore her hair down with a daisy chain crown.

There were initial reports that the dress was designed by Chanel’s Karl Lagerfeld. However, you can’t deny the similarity of her wedding dress to the Rodarte gown she wore to a pre-Bafta party back in 2008. I love the idea of her having recycled the gown for her wedding day and the look is completely different and fresh. Either way, I think she looks stunning!

Style Crush: Taylor Swift

I am a big fan of Taylor Swift’s style and thought I would recreate a couple of her outfits using more affordable pieces you can buy online. She is known for her unique sense of style- very feminine with a vintage twist. She wears a lot of high street clothing as well which makes it easy to get her look.
She also really likes dresses:

“there’s just something so feminine about a dress. Whether it’s a summertime dress that makes me feel carefree, an evening cocktail dress that makes me feel fancy, or a vintage dress that makes me feel like a ’50s housewife—which I enjoy feeling like, for some reason—I just really like dresses.”
