Keira's dress has its price

THRIFTY CHIC: Keira has been spotted out in the same dress, get this, three times!

NEVER let it be said that Keira Knightley has ideas above her station.

In her life, there's no need for rifling through the rails in Penneys for something suitable for the party and then praying Sharon from accounts hasn't bought it too (cos she's looking only amazing since she did that juice cleanse and it'll look way better on her).

No , the nature of Keira's line of work dictates that she gets beautiful ensembles thrown at her like confetti, by designers so expensive that they don't even accept actual money anymore, only the dust of ground unicorn horns.

So you'd be forgiven for wondering why, last week, Keira stepped out in a recycled dress for not the second, but the third time! The garment in question is in fact her wedding dress. A little prom queen number that looks like many net curtains were harmed in its creation, but with fabulous results.

It's said that every time a celebrity of Keira's couture calibre wears something for the second time in public, a walk-in wardrobe somewhere dies. So while her attempts to seem like a regular gal by utilising outfits more than once – like us sartorial plebs – may endear her to Josephine Public, she is endangering the walk-in-wardrobe population.

So Keira, while the dress is only gorgeous, I'd say the other five odd thousand you have in your presently distraught wardrobe are too. Do the right thing and don some different gunas. Sure, you're famous (and way skinnier than Sharon from accounts).
