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.

Tell us: What do you think of Knightley’s wedding dress? Do you love that it may have been her “something old?”

I love the dress, it reminds of Carrie’s dress from the opening sequence of SATC.

If she did there’s nothing wrong with that. I applaud her for doing it low key and not wasting a bunch of money being a show off. It’s about love and sharing your life. Not about how rich you are.

I think she looks beautiful and happy. Good for her. Lovely attitude and styling!

Love it! Seems like she had her priorities straight on her wedding day. It’s about committing to the one you love, everything else is just details!

Absolutely Gorgeous!

I don’t believe in wedding dresses, so it’s fine with me. Wore a two-piece ivory St. John dress which was used many times in the future. Don’t understand the whole concept of spending a lot of money on a dress that will only be worn once.

She looks lovely!

I wore jeans and a dressy T-shirt to my tiny outdoor wedding. Couldn’t care less about appearances. It’s all about the love and the sacred union.

I think since she can efforts a big fancy wedding and she made it so intimate she could have at least bought a new dress! I love it as it reminds me of Carrie in SATC but recycling a dress for your WEDDING?!? The most special day of your life? That’s just tacky to me.

People needs to stop using the word “recycle” when stars – GASP – re-wear something. I know I’m being nit-picky, but it’s very grating.

The only thing that looks odd is her chest. The dress looks like she’s deliberately trying to strap down her breasts, like Gwyneth Paltrow in Shakespeare in love. It also looks like it was cut just above her nipples.
