Is there anyone who has mastered the art of posh, English, elegant style like Keira Knightley? (Don’t say Posh Spice! We all know she has her own sub-genre of personal style, known simply as “The Beckham.”)With her penchants for prim dresses, long sleeves, and Chanel, Knightley looks like a lady 24/7, but still keeps up the cool factor with looks from artsy brands like Erdem, Mary Katrantzou, and Miu Miu. And since today is her birthday (HBD, KK!), we thought it would be just the time for a how-to lesson in copping Knightley’s graceful style. Just check out all of Knightley’s sartorial hits in the slideshow where you’ll find everything you need to recreate the looks yourself.
Let’s face it, LBDs can be a little boring. But we’re all about Knightley’s Chanel pumps with bow ankle straps that add a little kitsch to her monotone look. TRY: Saint Laurent Bow Pumps -- $685
