So nice, she wore it … thrice? Keira Knightley appears to be getting even more use out of the powder pink Chanel Haute Couture dress she last wore to her wedding in May.

The actress made an appearance at the Serious Fun gala in London Tuesday night, sporting what looked to be the same pretty dress Karl Lagerfeld made just for her — which was last seen on the star as she skipped through the streets of Marzan, France wearing custom Chanel bridal flats. Her gala dress had the same tiered, ruched bodice and ballet-inspired pink tulle skirt, though there was one noticeable difference: underneath the dress, she wore a whisper-thin sheer long-sleeved shirt with delicate leaf embroidery around the neckline and wrists. And true to Knightley’s quirky style, pale screenprint cameo portraits could be spotted among the embroidered leaves.

This is the third iteration of Knightley’s wedding look — she first wore the dress to a pre-BAFTA bash in 2008 — which makes this the most haute I Really Love My … of all time. And we have to say, we love that she isn’t keeping her favorite dress wrapped in tissue in a closet somewhere.

Are you impressed by Knightley’s wedding dress re-wear? Have any of you been able to wear a wedding dress (or a bridesmaid dress, for that matter!) again?

Third time’s a charm! I love it with the sheer shirt underneath. It’s nice that she really loves her wedding dress and that some celebrities are “normal” and actually wear some of their clothes more than once!

I like it and actually think it looks better the two times she wore it other than her wedding. I just wish it had another inch or two of dress above her bustline, it looks like it’s falling off in the second two pictures and makes me want to hike it up. But I love the actual dress, for the most part it works great on her, and I love that she’s using it for other things. I particularly like the look of it with the dark stockings, which I normally wouldn’t like but it works with this.

Imagine that, a star wearing something more than once. Good for her!

luvvy on

Good for her. It is a beautiful dress and she hasn’t fallen victim to wearing something twice. It is a beautiful dress and she clearly adores it!

My wedding dress was like a ball gown and Ive actually worn it on a very special occasion.I thought i was a princess in it and loved to wear it. Good for her,so many of us do it like her.

Sustainability ROCKS!

In the olden days, a bride would wear her wedding dress to all evening events for the first year of marriage. Given what folks are paying for them nowadays, perhaps the custom should be revived.

I think this is great! Did you know during the 19th century women wore their wedding gowns to social events for the first year of the marriage? It seems so wasteful these days to spend so much money on one item of clothing that never gets worn again. I love Kiera’s willingness to wear it more than once!

Just. so. vapid. Beautiful, but seriously.

Linda on

Quirky style indeed because that dress is not very pretty at all!

hmm on

It looks like she cut the hemline for her wedding to be more uniformly round just above her knees. I preferred the original style, where it was more ethereal and reached below her knees and was more unevenly edged.

What a lovely woman she is! The dress is amazing, and she obviously loves it, so good for her! I think she is just the epitome of gorgeous.

The girl ‘s got a well functioning brain! She sets a precedent for other celebs. We all should appreciate quality over quantity a lot more and stop regarding our world as a big wastebin.

She gets it.

I wore a real nice lace dress that I bought for under a $100 for my wedding ( very limited budget) so I was able to wear it again for nice things or even for attending religious meetings . I definetly got my moneys worth out of the dress. Glad to see a celebrity be frugal like this as an example.

sc on

yup! i wore my lovely wedding sari( a pure bengali red banarasi) on my brother in laws wedding again ! n i loved it!! :)

BL on

She’s actually smiling in a photo – so much better!

Widget on

At least she can still wear hers LOL

jessesgirl on

She’s adorable. Love her!

Guest on

Good for her, she looks lovely. If I owned a Chanel Haute Couture gown, I’d wear it in my sleep just for fun!!

christa on

I love celebrities who are thrifty. Its nice to see, that she is not bragging, not like those K’s.

Molly B on

Why not? She obviously loves it, and it brings her happy feelings and wonderful memories. I bet if you owned a Chanel dress, you’d wear it more than once. I know I would. Looking forward the the4th wearing, Keira! It looks lovely on you. :)

iudess on

So beautiful girl and dressI like this.

FrenchLady on

The dress is nice but geez…. did it have to be worn by an iron board???? It would have looked ton more fabulous if a real woman with real woman’s curves would have worn it.
