The case of the Keira Knightley wedding dress can officially be closed. It’s Chanel, ladies and gents.
Been hiding under a rock? We’ll bring you up to wedding speed. Knightley and Klaxons keyboardist James Righton tied the knot last weekend in the South of France. Following the ceremony, a wedding reception was supposedly held at Knightley’s mother Sharman Macdonald’s estate with over fifty guests in attendance including Sienna Miller and Karl Lagerfeld. Lovely.
Despite the rumours that Karl Lagerfeld would design a custom Chanel wedding dress for his Coco Mademoiselle ambassadress, Knightley went the low-key route, selecting a dress from her own archives instead. With the release of the candid shot above, there were many tweets speculating that the dress was Rodarte, because of its close resemblance to Knightley’s dress she wore at a BAFTA party in 2008.
However, Chanel has stepped out to clarify the rumours, as well they should!
Hand in hand with her husband, Knightley looks smitten in an above the knee pale grey tulle strapless dress from the Chanel Couture Spring 2006 collection with a little white tweed jacket created by Uncle Karl himself. She completed her bridal look with a pair of Chanel pink and grey ballet flats and topped it off with a simple pink floral halo hairpiece. Who needs custom when you’ve got love, right? (Right?)
