Keira Knightley's Honeymoon Wardrobe Includes a Leather Jacket for a Boat Trip

We’re still talking about her wedding dress, so it’s no surprise that Keira Knightley‘s honeymoon attire is just as noteworthy.

For starters, her coverup is much more stylish than the tees we tend to reach for. In fact, her pretty printed shirtdress did double duty as her travel outfit — after disembarking from her private plane in Corsica, she went straight for a stroll on the beach, then unbuttoned the dress to reveal a chic maroon two-piece with a baroque print. She accessorized her outfit with a $24 pair of Havaianas and a crisp Panama hat.

Then for a picnic lunch aboard a boat, the actress topped a high-waisted pair of red shorts and a black tee with a killer $2,865 Balenciaga quilted leather jacket. It’s hardly what we’d wear to protect ourselves from sea spray and bread crumbs (we’d save ours only for fancy nights out with 0% chance of rain!) but we also didn’t get to recycle custom Chanel for our wedding.

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.

Keira Knightley's Wedding Dress: What Will She Wear?

Here comes the bride, all dressed in custom Chanel!

That’s something not many brides hear on their wedding day (Drew Barrymore excluded), but we’re betting that Keira Knightley‘s going to be in a just-for-her Karl Lagerfeld creation for her wedding to James Righton, rumored to be this weekend.

Though details on the event are very hush-hush (all we know is that Knightley and Righton reunited at the Nice, France airport, and the ceremony is reportedly at or near her French country home), it’s a fairly safe bet that Knightley will be in Chanel. She’s long worn the design house’s ethereal attire, been the face of the Coco Mademoiselle fragrance and even played the role of Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel in a Lagerfeld-directed short.

So even though we suspect the fashionable star will have had a hand in the design, we couldn’t help but pick three ivory numbers from Lagerfeld’s latest couture show for Chanel. Each dress has elements that remind us of Knightley’s style (from showing off her elegant shoulders to the feminine, romantic details) — but we think the perfect dress for her would be a mix of all three looks.

But since we aren’t being consulted, we’ll ask you: Which of these three Chanel dresses is best for Knightley’s big day?

Sneak a Peek at Keira Knightley's Prettiest 'Anna Karenina' Costumes

We’re so excited to see Anna Karenina this weekend, not only because we loved the book, but because we can’t wait to see Keira Knightley‘s costumes.

Designed by Oscar nominee Jacqueline Durran, the elaborate gowns and structured uniforms required lots of blood, sweat and tears — but it was all worth it.

“Period films are absolutely a challenge because you never have enough time,” Durran tells PEOPLE. “You’re always racing to try and catch up.” However, working with Knightley and director Joe Wright — both of whom she collaborated with on Pride & Prejudice and Atonement — made the process much easier.

“It’s very hard work, and very last-minute, but with them, it’s a pleasure,” Durran says. “It’s just much easier to work with people you like and know.”

It’s also easier to work with an actress like Knightley, who looks gorgeous in everything. Durran dressed her in gowns that were “1870s silhouette meets 1950s couture” — and are absolutely stunning. To see some of our favorites, click through these photos. And see all of Durran’s work come to life when Anna Karenina hits theaters Friday. Tell us: Are you planning to see Anna Karenina this weekend?
