Keira Knightley Is Engaged To James Righton! Let The Wedding Dress Predictions Begin

Oh, how we love a good wedding! And when the bride is an A-list starlet with top notch designers on speed dial, we’re in for a good’un. Last week, we were giddy at the thought of Diane Kruger and Drew Barrymore walking up the aisle in Karl Lagerfeld-designed numbers and now we have another Chanel bride on the horizon: Keira Knightley.

Keira Knightley Is Engaged To James Righton! So Will The Actress Wear A Chanel Wedding Dress?

The actress has confirmed she’s engaged to marry James Righton after the Klaxons rocker proposed to her following a whirlwind 15-month relationship. To wit, the 27-year-old’s representative said: 'I can confirm that Keira is engaged to be married to James Righton.' We whoop! And it’s all thanks to Alexa Chung who introduced the Brit beauty to the cooler-than-cool keyboard player last year. Hmm, wouldn’t Chungers make the perfect hipster bridesmaid?

So let the wedding dress predictions begin! As the face of Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle fragrance, we’re placing our bets on Keira turning to her old chum Unkle Karl to design her gown and considering the wonderful concoctions he’s knocked-up in the past (remember Lily Allen’s vintage-y frock, par exemple?), we can expect something floaty, timeless and slim-fitting.

Indeed, Ms Knightley’s red carpet style is more fuss-free elegance than meringue-like frothiness. Her most recent outing was back in February when she opted for the clean, simple lines of Burberry, clinched with a black bow at the waist. And at the London Film Festival in October last year, she wowed the crowd in a black and dove grey number by Roksanda Illincic topped off with a super-slick side-parted bun.

But our favourite KK moment has to be at the Venice Film Festival when the starlet got the flashbulbs flashing thanks to a heavenly Valentino Couture creation made of gold embroidered tulle. Dreamy. How we’d love to see her opting for another full-skirted number for her Big Day. Either way, it's going to be a classic.
