Keira Knightley’s recently announced role as the Coco Mademoiselle perfume spokes model seals the deal: Knightley is the latest ‘It’ girl. Comparing Knightley to Catherine Deneuve and Nicole Kidman, Coco chose her because of her “elegance, beauty and modernity.” Her style is often sophisticated for a 21-year-old, but well suited to the elegance and poise she exudes on screen and off. Her Greek goddess-like appearance was captured well at the Golden Globes earlier this year. Although this particular dress was adorned with diamonds, there are some great alternatives that can make you feel like a goddess too, like the A.B.S. ivory embroidered satin dress from Bluefly. For some other choices, try the Sean Collection Cascade Gown (248.00) or this strapless number from Ruby Rox (78.00) both can be found at Nordstrom.com.
If you prefer Keiraâ€™s kicked-backed casual style, here is an easy look to put together. Grab a Isaac Mizrahi Â¾ Sleeve Striped Shirt (12.99) with Joe’s Cigarette jeans from Nordstrom (158.00) and pull on a pair of Nine West Earnest boots from Zappos.com (182.95).
