Keira's Style Triumphs
Knightley definitely knows her fashion.
Keira Knightley is a bonafide fashionista, but there’s one trend that the actress refuses to get on-board with — skinny jeans.

The Anna Karenina star confesses in the November issue of W magazine that she thinks “skinny jeans and micro miniskirts are very unfriendly.”

Despite taking a place among fashion’s finest, as a Chanel muse and the face of the brand’s Coco Mademoiselle fragrance, Knightley favors classic cuts and relaxed fits over leg-revealing skinnies and minis.

While skinny jeans don’t appear to be going , especially in Hollywood, where everyone from Kristen Stewart to Lauren Conrad have made skinnies their mainstay, the 27-year-old actress is sticking to her style guns.

 Shunning body-clinging styles, Knightley sticks to ladylike dresses and dramatic gowns for the red carpet and a mix of feminine pieces with a tomboy twist off the red carpet.

What is Knightley a fan of? Chanel, not surprisingly.

Even though hasn’t started planning her wedding just yet, the bride-to-be hinted that Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld would be her dream designer for her wedding dress.

“That would be pretty generous of him. He is an incredible designer,” she told W — though the tomboy isn’t sure she wants to wear a dress at all.

“It really depends on what sort of wedding I decide to have — if I go with a jeans and t-shirt option, then maybe it wouldn’t be quite right. I haven’t decided on anything yet,” Knightley added.
