Knightley’s New Look

Keira, Keira, Keira… So we love that you’re going a bit more edgy, a bit less scruffy. Ms Knightley is seen here in hot-off-the-racks Miu Miu (in fact, the entire Look 22 from the Spring Summer catwalk), at yesterday’s Laurence Olivier Awards Nominee lunch in London.
 
We kind of love the 70s geekery, and we are SO all about prints at the moment. We’ve already become a little obsessed with Miu Miu’s current collection, being modelled in the label’s new ad campaign by  15-year-old (yep) Lindsey Wixson. And only last week, Alexa Chung was raving about Miu Miu’s new season pink printy platforms being “the perfect shoe”.

For some reason, Keira is reminding us a leetle beet of Rachel Weisz in her vintage Ossie Clark outfit back in 2007. We admit, at the time, we found the clanging patchwork 70s print and Harry Hill collar a little alarming. Turns out, Weisz was ahead of the curve.

So our jury is still out on Knightley’s new look. But the naked lady print does allow us to revel in a very pleasant fashion memory – Carrie Bradshaw wearing the Prada naked lady print dress in the Vogue Fashion Cupboard.
 
We can’t help thinking: Carrie wore it better.…
 
What do you think of Knightley’s new look?
