Keira Knightley Upcycles Wedding Dress

Leave it to someone with such ethereal beauty to make Chanel more down-to-earth. Keira Knightley attended the SeriousFun Gala in London last night wearing a familiar frock — her wedding dress. Knightly donned the off-white Chanel number last May for her nuptials to James Righton of The Klaxons in Provence. She accessorized the ballerina-inspired dress with a Chanel boucle jacket, pink ballet flats, a bejeweled necklace, cat-eye glasses and a dainty flower crown.

However, if Knightley ever had superstitions about her groom seeing her in her wedding gown before the big day it would have been a bit moot. Knightly also wore the dress to a 2008 pre-BAFTA party. That time she accessorized with heavy black tights and pumps — a jarring contast against the dainty tulle. She found more success on her third try. This time she layered the dress over a mesh shirt with pearl embellishments around the collar and cuffs and paired it with simple, strappy sandals.
