Did Low Key Bride Keira Knightley Recycle Her Wedding Dress?

Is this Keira Knightley's wedding dress?

Keira Knightley had the ultimate low-key, but beautiful wedding yesterday as she tied the knot in front of just 11 people, allowed her guests to wear flip flops and wore simple ballet flats rather than bejewelled Jimmy Choos like your average bridezilla. She even turned up at ceremony in a Renault Clio. 

It was rumoured that Keira would be wearing a Karl Lagerfeld Chanel creation, as she is the face of Coco Mademoiselle and so has access to the closely guarded Chanel archives. Us fashion folk predicted delicate sheer sleeves, floral appliqués and exquisite beading. But Keira surprised us all by being a simple, ballerina bride in a strapless blush tulle dress with a classic cream Chanel boucle jacket. She topped off the look with peach ballerina pumps and a simple garland of flowers in her hair. 

So we've established that Ms Knightley was the antithesis of a bridezilla dripping in diamonds and squeezed into couture. But she is quite possibly the most laid back celebrity bride EVER, as rumour has it she recycled her wedding dress.  Talk about low key - even the most casual of brides normally splash out on a new dress.

Although nothing has been confirmed yet, but the strapless frock she wore skipping through Provence does have a striking resemblence to the strapless tulle number by Rodarte she wore back in 2008. She wore the dress five years ago to a pre-Bafta party with her former flame Rupert Friend. Hmm perhaps it's a bit unlikely that she would tie the knot in a dress she had worn five years ago on a night out with her ex-boyfriend?

Although Ms Knightley did say in an interview she might wear jeans and a tee to her wedding when asked whether Karl would design her dress, 'It really depends on what sort of wedding I decide to have - if I go with jeans and t-shirt options, then maybe it wouldn't be quite right,' she explained.

Mr Karl Lagerfeld is rumoured to have attended the wedding reception at her farmhouse and she was wearing a Chanel boucle jacket - so we can't rule out that the pretty, ballerina frock is a Chanel creation after all. What do you reckon - is this just a co-incidence or is Keira Knightley the ultimate low-key bride?
