Keira Knightley is no stranger to a chic Chanel garment, and just stunned us all in a lacy, velvet black midi dress from the luxury French fashion house while attending its Haute Couture Fall/ Winter runway show in Paris last week. Knightley, 37, has been an ambassador for Chanel since the age of 21, and sat front row during the unveiling of its latest collection.
Her dress featured an elegant, lace-trim halter neckline with a velvet bow detail, lace paneling at the waist and center, and thick, glamorous black fabric along the fit-and-flare skirt. The Pirates of The Caribbean alum completed her look with black-and-cream pumps, and accessorized with oversized black shades. She parted her collarbone-length brown hair down the middle and styled her tresses into loose waves.
The Pride & Prejudice star also added a small black clutch with a gold chain to her ensemble, and slipped on chunky silver rings that emphasized her timeless red manicure. She attended the event with her husband, indie rock musician James Righton, 38, who went for a classic suit and matching black sunglasses. Talk about a well-dressed duo!
Since Knightley is more selective about her public appearances these days (and understandably busy being a mom of two young daughters and currently filming an upcoming historical drama) fans on Twitter were more than excited to discuss her return to Fashion Week.
“The icon is back and better than ever!” one user wrote. We couldn’t agree more!
