So who is Keira’s designer du jour?

default

She's got the fashion world at the feet and has every designer falling over her to dress her. So why did we not instantly recognise Keira's dress when we saw it? The answer was that it by little-known (but very cool) label Alexis Mabille. After stints at Nina Ricci, Ungaro and Dior, Alexis launched his own men and womenswear ready-to-wear collection two years ago and has been steadily gaining fashion cred ever since. His signature style - glamorous pleats, embellishment, ruffles - oh, and bowties with everything, even here on Keira's dress. For someone who started off in their hometown of Lyon sewing bits of lace and old petticoats the boy's done good! Check out looks from his couture show in Paris '08 and tell us what you think of Keira's favourite designer?

PS - Alexis Mabille's ready-to-wear collection is stocked exclusively in Selfridges....
