Ever wondered what a Keira mixed with a Carey would look like? Yep, us too. As individual style mavericks, you'll know that Grazia Daily has long admired Keira Knightley and Carey Mulligan’s sartorial smarts, but combined? A match made in fashion heaven, right? Right!
Both actresses have become famous for sporting that Sunday school prettiness on the red carpet, so when we heard the duo were making an appearance at the British Film Festival today, we COULD. NOT. WAIT to see what they’d come up with.
Would it be a fash-off of Cheryl v Dannii proportions? Could they possibly match the Keira + Sienna coupling? Would they have a dress-doppelganger disaster a la Gwyneth and Scarlett? Oh, the excitement! Well, dear readers, the photocall has just taken place and the results are in, so why not judge for yourselves?
And we say...splendid! It’s not often that such fancy-schmancy-ness lands on our desks of a Wednesday afternoon, so we’re delighted to see the gals delivering a double whammy so superbly, and with an individual twist. With their matching wavy crops, complementary outfits and enough BFF giggling to put Rihanna and Katy Perry to shame, they're the perfect pairing, dontcha think? To be more precise, here’s what Grazia Daily is loving...
Firstly, how refreshing! Secondly, quick work, girl! Yes, that swishy blue skirt has sashayed straight off Rodarte’s S/S ‘11 catwalk and onto Keira’s lithe waist >applause!< So we may not see Laura Mulleavy in her own blue and white Ming vase designs anytime soon, but that hasn’t stopped Keira from getting her mitts on them. And we adore how she's teamed it with that feminine nude blouse, giving the skirt an air of afternoon-appropriate wearability. What’s more, those brown Louboutins finish off her of-the-moment ladylike air and seeing as the lace and floral patterns are decoration enough, Keira’s wisely steered clear of any further accessorising. So yes, the look of wonderment on those blokes’ faces pretty much says it all.
And the lovely Carey? Well, surprise surprise - the girl we crowned Miuccia’s New Muse has done it again in this Proenza Schouler number. And what a vibrant beacon of style she is. Those pleats! That rich mustard tone! All so right for now, if the S/S ‘11 catwalks are anything to go by... And a congratulatory thumbs up for the demure vibe, too. Much like Keira’s simple accessories, just a smattering of black accents is all that’s needed, including those faithful YSL heels. Oh, and lest we forget - dimples, dimples, dimples! We still can’t get enough >sigh<
Ok so you get the gist; we are pretty pleased with the turn out. The fact Keira and Carey are longtime pals only adds to the pretty picture (remember when they starred in 'Pride and Prejudice' together back in 2005?), and now they’ve been reunited for ‘Never Let Me Go’, we can expect to see much more of such gloriousness. So let Grazia Daily be the first to say, we can’t WAIT to fall a little more head over heels with our new favourite double act.
