Keira Knightley's Chanel Wedding Dress: Something Old?

Keira Knightley was not only a gorgeous bride on her wedding day; she was also a very practical one.

Rather than wearing an over-the-top ballgown or something straight from the Chanel runway, the star appeared to have recycled a blush pink Chanel number, which she last wore in 2008, for the intimate ceremony in Mazan, France.

That’s not to say, of course, that it was just any old dress she pulled out of her closet. Everything from her matching flats to the coordinating classic jacket was specifically designed by Chanel creative director Karl Lagerfeld for Knightley, a rep for Chanel confirms, adding that the dress is haute couture.

The dress bore a striking resemblance to one that she’d worn previously with black tights and pumps for a pre-BAFTA party in 2009, though we have to say we love her carefree styling for her wedding day even better.

Tell us: What do you think of Knightley’s wedding dress? Do you love that it may have been her “something old?”

who cares, she’s happy

I love the fact that she didn’t spend a ridiculous amount on something she’d only wear for a few hours. It’s pretty, it fit the occasion . . . yeah!

What a lovely look for her wedding day. If she did recycle, more power to her! It’s wonderful and entirely right when weddings are more about the marriage of the two people concerned than about ostentatious display and wanton extravagance.

Love it… simple but beautiful!

Why does the media have to make such a big deal out of the fact that a celebrity “recycled” an item of clothing?? Big deal that Keira choose to use a dress from her closet (and a beautiful one at that) rather than spend thousands of dollars on a dress that she will only wear once for an hour or so!

It shouldn’t matter if she wore rags… what matters in this case is the love she has for the man she nows calls Husband.

No Chelsea, it’s the most special day of YOUR life. Maybe not everyone else.

Ryry on

@Chelsea, it is nowhere near ” The most special day of your life”. True, it is a special day, but there are many more life experiences that will far surpass your wedding (the birth of your children, the news of being cancer free, etc.). Don’t live life for one day . . . it is much more than that.

— I love your comment. You are so totally on the mark.

She looks so cute and happy, skipping out of the church.

Wearing something for a second time does NOT constitute “recycling”.
