By now, Keira Knightley has pretty much become the figurehead to wear your wedding dress again. Five years after she first picked up her bespoke Chanel tulle dress by late designer Karl Lagerfeld at a pre-BAFTA bash hosted by Finch & Partners in 2008, she decided it was just the piece to make her vows with James Righton in Marzan , France. “I just wanted to be in something that I had had a great time in, that I would have another great time in,” she later told the Telegraph.
Seven months later, she hit the red carpet in the dress for the SeriousFun gala in London again and swapped her bridal apartments for a pair of strappy heels.
However, the beloved dress has since been retired when Knightley told the publication in 2014 that it was all but ruined after a friend spilled red wine on it. “It’s splattered quite impressively. But hey, a good night is a good night, and if a dress has its time, maybe it has a time, “she said.” I’m pretty sure I can get it out, but when I can’t, I’m happy with the memory of a good night and the story of how the dress was destroyed. ”
