Having first grabbed our attention as a midriff baring teenager at the world premiere of 'Pirates of The Caribbean: The Curse of The Black Pearl' back in 2003, Keira Knightley has risen up the fashion ranks to become a sartorial favourite both on and off the red carpet.
After a few questionable style choices, the world took a collective intake of breath when a 20-year-old Keira arrived at the The 63rd Annual Golden Globe Awards in a floor-length, white strapless gown by Valentino.
A year later in 2007, the ‘Pride & Prejudice’ star’s femme fatale looks landed her a contract as the face of Chanel - a sure sign of Style Icon status.
Not averse to making an entrance, Keira opted for a risqué Rodarte dress for the 2007 ‘Atonement’ premiere, the first in a run of draped, Grecian-style outfits for the actress.
Despite a love affair with fairytale-like Valentino dresses, the British beauty often supports her homeland too, choosing off-beat ensembles by homegrown designers such as Christopher Kane, Erdem Moralio?lu and Burberry Prorsum.
It’s the actresses’ off-duty wardrobe we hanker after most though; vintage-style prints and flowing cuts offer a laid back, eclectic vibe we can only wish to master. The perfect kooky indie look for the future wife of a rocker.
