Keira Knightley is engaged to the Klaxons’ James Righton. She is also the face of Chanel‘s Coco Mademoiselle fragrance. This combination has obviously left everyone speculating about whether or not Karl Lagerfeld will design her wedding dress. But according to Karl that might not be the best idea for Keira. In his latest Grazia interview (you know, the one where he says Kate Middleton’s mum is “very sexy”) the Chanel designer confessed he hasn’t had much luck with bridal designs in the past, revealing:
“I love Keira. I would love to do it if she wanted. [Whispers] Normally I don’t recommend me for the wedding dresses – they all get a divorce.”
It’s like the curse of the Chanel wedding gown (by the way, this should totally be made into a dramatic musical theatre production). Does Karl Lagerfeld give this warning to every potential Chanel bride? Perhaps it’s why Blake Lively opted for a custom Marchesa design, instead of the expected Chanel Haute Couture number, when she married Ryan Reynolds?
Let’s just hope Keira’s brave enough to be a Chanel bride. She might even break the curse…
Would you like to see Keira marry in a Chanel design? Or do you have another label in mind?
