So Keira Knightley‘s wedding dress was a recycled Chanel gown, and like, wouldn’t you do the same? But for a recent appearance (something called the Serious Fun gala in London) she added sleeves and a new neckline to her re-worked wedding gown and wore it on the carpet, again. It’s a gorgeous dress and she looks fab in it, so I get it. (Thanks to People for pointing this out).
But would you ever re-wear your wedding dress? This girl is reminding me of Marge Simpson when Marge got that Chanel suit and kept altering it on her sewing machine to make it look slightly different.

Celebrities walk around and get their photos taken, so let’s criticize their outfits. Here are some of my picks for best and worst celebrity looks of the week. Above is Emily VanCamp (Revenge) who’s got this face on like she’s she’s realizing she made some sort of huge mistake. Maybe she realized she’s on Revenge. What happened to that show? The second season…godawful. I like her outfit though. It reminds me of ~~Kiki Dunst back in 2006-2008~~. Not totally into the handbag.

Keira Knightley got married yesterday and we all rejoiced, all 7 of us. Hey, I kid! Really, I adore her and I was particularly smitten with her wedding dress. SO fresh, so breezy so effortless. While it was reported to be custom made Chanel it looks as though maybe it was actually a dress she had already worn in 2008. See for yourself:
WHICH IS TOTALLY FINE TO DO, but I’m sort of lolling inside because it’s like, she really doesn’t give an eff, she’s going to wear a f-cking awesome dress no matter what. Who cares if it’s not a wedding dress or if she’s already worn it 5 years ago? It’s a great dress! Pretty sure we’re not going to see Jennifer Aniston doing that shit.
BIG thanks to The Daily Mail for pointing this out. And of course they would.
This doesn’t change my opinion of the dress AT ALL. What about you? Do you think it’s tacky or strange that she recycled a dress to use for her wedding?

Keira Knightley is married! She and musician James Righton were married today in the south of France (technically the southeastern region). It was a casual, cute, and vaguely hipsterish affair. I throw hipster in there because of the groom’s skinny tie, her daisy crown, and their matching Rayban sunglasses, and if you think I’m using the word inaccurately, you are probably a hipster. I’m not making fun of her; I love the idea of a stylish but casual wedding. Except apparently it was so casual that, “some of the 11 guests were wearing flip flops [at the ceremony]” according to The Telegraph. Ew and God no. Why the hell would you wear flip flops to a wedding? That is tacky and godawful. MAYBE after the ceremony and at the reception, after hours of dancing. I’ve seen couples who provide buckets of flip flops for guests with sore feet. That’s kind of cute. But to show up IN flip flops? Go back to Hollister. Oh God and they’re also reporting that “Others wore jeans.” To quote Elaine Benes, “GET. OUT.”
People Magazine (of course) has more details about their ceremony and reception:
The actress, 28, tied the knot with her fiancé of one year, James Righton, in an intimate ceremony at the town hall in Mazan, a small village in Provence, on Saturday.
“It was not a long service,” one witness tells PEOPLE, “and very few people.” The ceremony was performed by the village mayor and “occurred just before noon and lasted only about 30 minutes. Keira looked beautiful. She wore a very pretty, very elegant dress.”
Knightley’s choice for her big day? A strapless tulle dress that came to her knees and a classic Chanel jacket. She skipped into the ceremony in nude flats and her hair down, crowned with daisies.
Thirty to 50 guests are reportedly invited to attend an afternoon garden luncheon and an evening party at which Righton’s band, The Klaxons, are expected to perform. Guests are staying at the Chateau de Mazan, a four-star hotel in the village of 6,000. The wedding ceremony and party are being held in Mazan where Knightley has owned a small wine-growing farm since 2010. A reception tent was spotted there on Friday, and the couple smooched in the airport when Righton arrived earlier in the week.
It sounds perfect. A smallish wedding in a vineyard. And I LOVE her dress. Here are some more photos. Flip flops and jeans abound.

Keira Knightley‘s wedding is happening guys and I’m really excited because I love weddings. Really love weddings. Don’t even look at my Pinterest. She’s got some tents set up in the south of France. SHIT’S LEGIT.
On Tuesday she picked up her fiance James Righton at an airport in France. She was wearing overalls. I don’t know why. I don’t know why anyone over the age of 7 would willingly wear overalls. But her dress is gonna be good! They’re saying custom Chanel. (Or as Justin Bieber knows it, “Channel.“) Here are some more squee-able wedding details from The Daily Mail:
A large marquee has been erected near the village of Mazan in the South of France, which is two and a half hours away from Nice and surrounded by picturesque rolling countryside.
It is here that the 28-year-old Atonement star is expected to wed James, 29, who is a keyboardist n indie band The Klaxons.
The couple were seen warmly greeting one another at a French airport on Tuesday as speculation mounted that they were to tie the knot over the long Bank Holiday Weekend.
The New York Post claims that Keira will wear a custom-made Chanel dress by her longtime friend and the label’s director Karl Lagerfeld.
Keira is the face of Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle fragrance, and has recently been working with the famed designer on a short film about Coco Chanel, in which she plays the lead role.
The pair have gone to great lengths to keep the wedding a secret.
‘It’s all been a massively covert operation – her friends and family were only told recently about the ceremony.
‘They’ve all been told not to travel in big groups, to arrive separately and to all spread out where they’re staying so as not to draw attention to the wedding party,’ a source told The Mirror.
The couple got engaged in May 2012 after meeting through mutual friend Alexa Chung, and Keira recently moved into a new home in east London with the Klaxons keyboardist.
STUPID TIME DIFFERENCE. I’m in America and Ms. Knightley is about to get married in France and it’s like, ugh, why does everything bad happen to me??
I can’t wait to see her wedding dress. I’m sure she’s going to look lovely, cheekbones and all. I still love her. Do you guys remember when Keira Knightley was everywhere? And Jude Law? Remember when Jude Law is in EVERYTHING? Maybe he’ll even be in this wedding! And it will be like 2008 never went away.

Hey, didn’t you love Atonement, that Pride and Prejudice remake and Bend It Like Beckham? Still watch Love, Actually every Christmas and cry your eyes out over a plate of sugar cookies? Well, you’re going to love this story because it’s about Keira Knightley, who hasn’t really been doing much since then. (Shut up, I know she’s had other roles, I just don’t care about them.) Keira’s engaged to
some bro – sorry, she’s English – some bloke named James Righton from The Klaxons, who also haven’t been notable since about 2006. Together, they will walk down the aisle to begin their lives together… possibly as soon as this weekend!
From The Sun:
Keira Knightley will wed her musician fiance James Righton in a private do in the South of France this weekend.
The couple are to get hitched in a small ceremony near Nice in front of family and friends.
Keira, 28, and James, 29, got engaged last summer and recently moved in together.
A source said: “Most of their friends will fly out for the wedding on Friday.
“They’ve been planning it for a while but wanted something small and private. They could get married in total private in stunning surroundings.”
Speaking about her upcoming nuptials last month, Keira said: “I could have six fake weddings. God, that would be expensive.
“We’re not big-wedding types. I don’t need to have all that. I’m just trying to enjoy the engagement bit.”
Sure, okay. You’ve been engaged since last year after dating this guy for less than a year, but no probs – I’m sure you guys will have a long and healthy life together. Hey, it’s working for Khloe and Lamar!
