Fashion Faceoff: Chanel Couture Dress

Keira Knightley and co-star James McAvoy look picture perfect at the Opening Ceremony and the Atonement Premiere at the 64th Annual Venice Film Festival on Wednesday in Venice, Italy. Looking pretty in pink was Keira in modified Chanel couture Fall/WinterW 2008.

Said Keira about her role in Atonement, “When I first read the script I just completely fell in love with Cecilia, totally and utterly, partly maybe it was because of the romance, and I like a bit of romance.”

20+ pictures inside of Keira at the VFF opening ceremony…

To the right, Brazilian supermodel Raquel Zimmermann.

Who wore it best — KEIRA KNIGHTLEY or THE RUNWAY MODEL?

    Keira is my favorite actress and she looks gorgeous! I LOVE that dress and she looks amazing! Did you know that Johnny Depp is suppose to be there to but for Tim Burtons award!

  • myles

    I like this girl so much though I think she needs to get some weight on that bod of hers…. She’s too skinny.

  • Ashley

    Eugh! That boney back! Girl needs to gain some weight NOW!

  • Ashley

    although the dress is nice

  • tickled

    she’s not too thin, just flat chested and pear shaped. she’s got very thick legs but an okay face.

    She need some of my breast!

  • http://deleted flower

    she is so skinny

  • v

    I’m starting to get worried about her, she looks so skinny :(
    She looks pretty here though, her dress is lovely!

  • http://cinefilapornatureza.blogspot.com Kamila

    She looks stunning! And James MacAvoy is just SO beautiful. I can’t wait to see “Atonement”.

  • Jen

    Dress? What dress? I guess I was too busy looking at James McAvoy. Sigh.

  • patricia night

    I love her
    I think that she is talented actress and beautiful woman
    But really, she looks too skinny

  • http://- Joanna [Poland]

    SHE LOOKS GORGEOUS. I don’t like white shoes, but she looks really really pretty. Love the dress.

  • wilwarin

    most probably the dress is chanel. she is after all the face coco medemoiselle, so I imagine she’s gonna show around all dresse chanel (how dreadful)

  • Neil

    She may look skinny but she looks healthy and radiant.

  • Moonlight

    Some people are naturally thin. Gaining weight wouldn’t hurt, but it isn’t neccessary.

  • the_original_nika

    Nice dress.
    Does she like being that skinny!? Pictures can be deceiving, but looks it. has long has she is healthy.

  • Violette

    Keira looks really good, although I agree with everyone else – she does look really skinny.

  • http://- Joanna [Poland]

    KEIRA WORE IT BETTER. BUT WHT DID YOU CHANGED THE SUBJECT? THAT’S WEIRD.

  • Vicky

    Both look gorgeous.

  • [~Famous~]

    This must be fug week. That hideous model looks a million times better than skinny creature.

  • Lindsey

    Pretty dress but this whole naturally skinny thing is a bunch of crap. She looks like she is anorexic. If she was merely naturally skinny then she would have looked so in Bend it Like Beckham or Love Actually. She was heavier in both of those films at the beginning of her career.

  • Gus

    Raquel Zimmermann for sure!!

  • Adrienne

    She’s beautiful. She and James look very nice together. Can’t wait for the film!!

  • agatha

    she is very beautiful,and nery talented actress but she is like dead….eat something,,put some weight!!!!

  • xenu

    The dress looks much better on Keira, but for luvva Mike, woman, stand up straight!

  • Maria (Shorty)

    Kiera wore it better. I just don’t like the head gear nor the fur on the model. Kiera is a cutie. Xenu, I agree on the stand up straight, but maybe she was being kind ’cause he’s shorter.

    There’s no contest–Keira leaves the model in the dust. The pink shade is prettier, Keira is gorgeous and the cloth covering the model’s head looks silly.

  • andré

    keira is gorgeous.
    i love her.
    the way she stands, her posture, is just perfect with this dress.

  • Raichill

    Good lord, Keira needs to eat some pork chops.

  • Hugues

    She looks really SICK and ANOREXIC !
    We can see her bones !

  • sexyboi

    i luv her!

  • http://degima.piczo.com degi

    she is wonderful actress and she always looks gorgeous

  • JoAnn

    She and Winona Ryder can pass as sisters!

    She would need to watch her posture. Other than that, she looks okay.

  • Ola

    she looks amazing! and the dress is beautiful!:)love it!

  • Elle

    Keira, no contest.

  • Sarah

    Yep, Keira Knightley.

  • Kath

    keira looks stunning in that dress. its the perfect dress for her since its not too mature or immature- just right! i also love that sparkly pink shade on her- it makes her look so cute. so obviously, keira wore it better. i dont blame the model though…i guess thats the couture fashion way of wearing it.

  • zz-tops

    keira all the way! the wooly furry thing on the model completely ruins the dress for me! I think it’s the first time in a fashion face off where the actress is skinner than the model

  • christie

    sooooo much better on keira of course!!!!!

  • Swati

    Wow Kaylita! It is CHANEL as written in th headline. idiot!

  • Sedona

    Beautiful, Breath-Taking from the neck UP….

    but from the neck down the ONLY thing beautiful is the dress, because there is NO body! YIKES….scary scary scary. Sad too.

    Denial is strong and stubborn in this disease.

  • lovekeira

    I just love Keira Knightley. She is absolutly gorgeous. She has a stunning body. I would like to e as thin as her. She rocks.

  • dawn

    you know theres seomthing thats called a fast metabolism girls who have fast metabolism can eat w/e they want and not gain weight you people are dipshits. it doesnt mean ur anorexic/bulimic. and u can tell if someone is bulimic/anorexic and keira is def. not any one of those two

  • camila

    is it my impression, or she looks to be so thin in the pictures, and for the guys hot in the movies??? her chest are big in the pirates of caribbean, aren’t they?
