Keira Knightley In Valentino – “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart”

I’m sure many of us would’ve expected Keira Knightley to be front row at the Chanel presentation in France yesterday, but she was in New York City where she appeared on “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.”

The British actress wore a Valentino Fall 2011 halter mini dress as she arrived to a crowd of adoring fans.

Her gorgeous feminine floral appliqué dress was paired with Valentino pheasant feathered ankle strap heels from the same collection.

Keira kept her jewelry to a minimum with a simple ring.

She traded in her pout for a sexy smirk, but kept her trademark wavy locks.

Who Wore 3.1 Phillip Lim Better? Alexa Chung or Keira Knightley

Alexa Chung attended Mulberry’s star-studded VIP BBQ and Pool Party at this year’s Coachella Festival wearing an embellished 3.1 Phillip Lim silk dress with a black leather paillette panel.

The TV presenter relaxed poolside, pairing the dress with a gold necklace, Illesteva cat eye tortoiseshell sunglasses and 3.1 Phillip Lim two-tone black and tan sandals.

She completed her look with a hint of lipstick and blue nail polish.

The dress is definitely an interesting choice for a festival known to bring out more bohemian style choices (see Vanessa Hudgens and Isabel Lucas), so I appreciate Alexa’s different approach. She looks lovely but I don’t think that it works for a festival.

A few days later, fellow Brit Keira Knightley was photographed leaving the Comedy Theatre after her performance in ‘The Children’s Hour’ wearing the same dress.

Keira’s version has nude leather paillette panel which she paired with a added a dark grey blazer with a black collar. She also matched her brown leather Miu Miu bag to her brogues.

I love that Keira paired the dress with brown accessories and didn’t stick to basic black. The combination is unexpected but she definitely manages to pull it off.

I’m voting for Keira on this one. Even though Alexa looks great, I think the dress was the wrong choice for a pool party. I like that Keira chose contrasting accessories and think she pulls off that cool London girl look perfectly.

You can buy Keira’s version of this 3.1 Phillip Lim dress from Net-A-Porter US and Net-A-Porter International.

Celebrity Shoe Swap: Keira Knightley

Keira Knightley attended the 2011 Jameson Empire Awards in London this week wearing black Jimmy Choo satin pumps.

Keira tends to wear black pumps on the red carpet regardless of the type of dress she’s wearing.

Her black pumps are safe and boring.

Keira’s lovely Rodarte dress needed a blush coloured or dainty heel.

Shoes Keira Should Have Worn

Miu Miu’s crystal-heel satin sandals are embellished perfectly to complement the embellishments on Keira’s dress. I love mixing textures and these satin heels would’ve been ideal for her dress.

The Versace two-tone patent leather pumps are one of my favorite nude pumps this season. It’s hard to find this exact colour. The colour, shape and style make it a great option for Keira. You may remember that Michelle Monaghan wore these same heels this week.

Tabitha Simmons Dana suede sandals are my favorite heels for Keira. They were also the shoe choice for recent BDOTW winner Jennifer Aniston. Had Keira opted for these heels they may have carried the same luck for the British actress too.

The Nicholas Kirkwood suede and ruffle chiffon platform sandals would have complemented the ruching on Keira’s dress. This is a unique choice as Kirkwood’s and Rodarte’s designs work very well together.

Which pair would you pick for Keira?

Keira Knightley In Rodarte – 2011 Jameson Empire Awards

Keira Knightley attended the 2011 Jameson Empire Awards in London tonight, where she was honored with the “Empire Hero Award.”

We’ve known Keira so long, that we know that she only has two “go-to” designers for big events.

Chanel and Rodarte.

On this occasion she opted for a Rodarte Spring 2011 look.

Her nude embellished dress with cold shoulders, ruffled trims and a Peter Pan collar was styled with black pumps.

Thankfully I’m so interested in the many features of her dress, that I can almost pretend that the black pumps are not really happening.

Is this a BDOTW contender for you?

British Celebrities Love…Miu Miu Ostrich Leather Hobo Bag

British style leaders Keira Knightley and Sienna Miller may differ in their personal style choices, but it seems the two may have similar tastes when it comes to bags.

Both actresses were spotted this week carrying the same Miu Miu Spring 2011 Ostrich leather hobo bag in different color ways.

Keira posed for cameras with her version on Monday evening outside of The Comedy Theater leaving her latest performance in “The Children’s Hour’, while Sienna carried hers during a casual night out at London’s Theatre Royal Hallymark.

The bag features an ostrich leather flap, top handle which adds a lady-like appeal and a long detachable shoulder strap for a hands-free and crossbody coolness.

I haven’t spotted the ostrich leather versions online yet, but Net-A-Porter US and Net-A-Porter International have this camel, tan and chocolate leather version.

Keira Knightley In Chanel Couture – The Childrens Hour Press Night

So…the PR who told everyone that Keira Knightley was going to be the face of Tom Ford was incorrect.

What they should’ve said is that Keira hadn’t worn Tom Ford for 6 years.

Therefore it’s no surprise to see Keira wearing her first love – Chanel – to The Childrens Hour Press Night at The Penthouse in London’s Leicester Square last night.

She looked breath-taking wearing a black chiffon Chanel Fall 2009 Couture dress with an embellished embroidered neckline and back detail and a flowing chiffon train.

Keira can do no wrong in Chanel.

Even the black pumps – which work – don’t stop me loving this look.

No need for jewels with the embellishments. Effortless as always and born to wear Chanel

BDOTW contender?
