Keira Knightley’s 8 Most Whimsical Dresses

One thing that will hit you when you spot Keira Knightley on the red carpet is the realization that her dress is so whimsical! Trust the red carpet veteran to look like a Victorian era court lady one moment and a fascinating nymph the next.

Her penchant for ethereal frocks does not go unnoticed. We reviewed some of her most fabulous outfits and let our eyes feast on her unique style saturated with tulles, organzas, florals, and laces.

1. Rodarte

The 28-year-old doesn’t believe in wasting a good dress. She wore this dainty tulle frock with see-through details from Rodarte in 2008 and then wore it again on her wedding day in 2013. She wore the dress a third time later that year for an event in London.

2. Chanel

This dress is everything we have ever dreamed of in a white dress — just the right amount of embellishment, tulle, and ruching. It satiates our love for princess-like garments without actually making our adult selves cringe.

3. Valentino

The actress managed to outshine the model who wore this on the Valentino RTW 2012 runway. She accessorized with a red head wreath, and what a striking effect it made! Let’s not forget the sheer quality of craftsmanship on this dress. The embroidery details and the sequins — everything is perfection.

4. Elie Saab

Who can forget this frothy tulle Elie Saab dress Keira wore at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2011? It’s ethereally modest at the front, but it’s party at the back!

5. Valentino Couture

The Valentino aesthetic definitely fits the actress, so it’s no surprise to find her sporting yet another one from this designer powerhouse. It’s another gauzy tulle number, but boasting beige and gold elements.

6. Simone Rocha

We can’t get enough of this Simone Rocha creation! It has the same color combination of beige and gold that Keira fancies. It also features other interesting design elements — the unique collar, the flap at the waist, and the asymmetrical waistline.

7. Chanel Resort 2015

This dress wins in the floral appliqué department! It’s a garden party of a dress that has a bold multicolored jewel embellishment and a dainty opaque underlay skirt.

8. Prada
