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.
Even in jeans and a sweater, Knightley looks majorly cool. We're blaming that on the perfect pea coat.
Yes, we have been obsessed with this Chanel number since Knightley wore it to her wedding.
"Oh this?! It's just my Mary Katrantzou printed cocktail dress blowing in the wind. NBD"
And we've just found our new spring uniform: It's this outfit.
Yeah, we'd be pretty happy too if we were wearing that floral dress and platform Mary Janes.
The words "mint green maxi dress" definitely sound a little scary when strung together, but on Knightley they look unbelievably cool.
So not only was this the bob that launched a thousand snips, but this tea-hued lace dress definitely fueled us to go hunting for a similar vintage one--AKA how we spent 2011.
The ultimate summer dress. If only we had one in every color.
Sorry, Carey Mulligan, you're being overshadowed by this epic skirt.
Fact: There is no outfit we've ever wanted more than this one.
Party on the top and bottom, chic in the middle.
Reverse layering never looked so right.
Nobody rocks a headband like Knightley.
The crop top that defined 2003.
