Keira Knightley has clearly found a signature style and who can blame her when you've got a fantastic figure and a vast collection of Chanel at your disposal. Appearing at the premiere of her latest film, Begin Again at the closing night of the Tribeca Film Festival in New York this weekend, Keira wore the latest waist-enhancing wonder that we're calling Chanel Clinchers.

The actress appeared in a layered skirt with scallop top and looked like sparkling sea urchin with the multiple layers of sequins and beading. It's just another version of what is fast becoming her favourite silhouette. Because one Chanel dress in one night just isn’t enough KK.

Yep, at the premiere’s after party, she continued her Chanel cinch in a very similar dress from the French fashion house. Whilst the silhouette had little variation, the pastel pink dress was a little freer than the one before. The pretty pink number was teamed with scallop detail heels from the up-and-coming shoe designer, Bionda Castana.

Keira’s love for the new Chanel silhouette started back in February at Paris Fashion Week where she checked out Karl’s latest collection for the house. Whilst perusing the aisles at the Chanel shopping centre with its stacks of packaged 2.55 bags, and even the odd door mat, the actress wore a monochrome box cut top and skirt combo, brought together via what appeared to be a corseted waist. The optical illusion vibe was likened to the silhouette created by the various costumes Keira has worn for her multiple roles within period dramas - and we're sure Anna Karenina would approve!

Naturally as the face of Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle perfume, one will never be short on Chanel. The Oscar-nominated star married her band beau, James Righton, in a Chanel couture dress (which she's reworn more than one) and has appeared in multiple adverts for the brand, even taking on the role of the founding lady of the brand in a film directed by Karl himself. So long may the Keira x Chanel love-in continue when the red carpet results are this glorious.
