Keira Knightley, THAT Chanel Dress, And The Adorable Pictures Everyone’s Talking About

It's official. Keira Knightley and James Righton are the coolest couple in showbiz. See the gorgeous pictures from their date night and find out how Keira customised her wedding dress

Keira Knightley and James Righton are officially our new favourite couple. The notoriously private husband and wife, who married in Provence earlier this year, made a rare red carpet appearance at a charity gala in London last night and the pictures are almost too adorable for words. But we’ll try…

Keira gave us a lesson in how to customise a wedding dress, wearing her Chanel Haute Couture gown for the THIRD time. A spokesperson for Chanel confirmed the dress was in fact the dress she wore on her wedding day, and told Marie Claire exclusively that she chose to customise the gown with a sheer embellished long-sleeved top, which she wore underneath the dress. Amazing.

Giving us a hint at the cheeky, happy wedding album we never got to see, Keira and James cosies up on the red carpet at the SeriousFun Gala in London, smiling away for the cameras, cuddling and looking into each other’s eyes.

And there wasn’t a pout in sight.

The gala was hosted by Paul Newman and saw James Blunt, Kate Nash and Boris Becker in attendance, raising over £500,00 for the SeriousFun Children’s Network charity. The charity was founded by Paul Newman in 1988, and has set up 30 camps and programmes serving children with serious illnesses and their families, which are always free of charge.


Keira married The Klaxons lead singer James in a low-key ceremony in southern France in May, surrounded by 50 of their closest friends. The actress was praised for ‘recycling’ her dress, and teaming it with a Chanel boucle jacket, Chanel pumps and RayBan wayfarers.

Karl Lagerfeld said: ”She had the least pretentious wedding ever. The whole thing was relaxed. I think it’s perfect. After all, they lived together for quite a time. It’s not as if she is a young girl of 18 who sees the husband for the first time. She is not a country girl. Yes. I liked the light-heartedness of this wedding.’

Oh, Keira. Could you be any cooler?
