Keira Knightley Spotted Twice in Baggy Overalls

By: Shana Norris - December 24, 2013

Keira Knightley is known for her low-key, eclectic fashion choices.

She lived up to her reputation a few days ago when she hit the shops in London on two different occasions wearing baggy denim overalls.

Or, as they’re called in the UK, dungarees.

Knightley’s apparent shopping uniform of choice was similar both days: she wore the baggy overalls over sweaters, topped with warm coats, and completed the look with a pair of clunky brown combat boots. On both occasions she appeared to be wearing little to no make-up and was sporting dark-framed glasses.

And in another nod to low-key styling, there was no designer bag in sight. Knightley carried only cotton totes on her shopping expeditions, despite the fact that she surely has ample access to high end bags given her star power and her gig as the face of Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle fragrance.

The overall-wearing Knightley was accompanied on one of her London shopping excursions by husband, James Righton.

Knightley married Righton, co-vocalist and keyboardist for the London-based band Klaxons, in May. The wedding, held in the South of France, was typical low-key Knightley style. So low-key, in fact, that Knightley chose a dress she’d previously worn as her wedding dress.

She created a stir when she wore the dress a third time at a December 3 London gala supporting the Serious Fun Children’s Network.

More than six months later, the Internet is still talking about Knightley’s wedding dress choice:

    As beautful as ever, and love her acting. Give the woman a break, who glams it up to go shopping for an afternoon or two. Aside from being a celeb, she and others are just like everyone else. Always admired Keira, she’s got talent, and seems very down to Earth and happy. Not a drama queen like some of these other actresses in the spotlight.

    Oh, the horror! Oh, the humanity! A celebrity dresses like a normal person!! How will the tabloids ever survive?!?

    Finally, a celebrity who understands she is much more than what she wears, even though she does look great in pretty much everything. At this time of year, Enjoy rewatching her and the rest of that great cast in “Love Actually.”
