She might be a big fashion icon for millions, but when it comes to Keira Knightleys own style influences, the actress admits that some of them are totally bizarre.
The 22-year-old stems her inspiration from the reigning queens of the worst dressed lists, actress Helena Bonham Carter and batty Icelandic singer Bjork.
I don’t think I’m confident enough yet to be used to being in the limelight because of my style, The Daily Express quoted her, as saying.
But I loved the swan dress Bjork wore to the 2001 Oscars [below]. Id love to have the courage to do the same, she added.
And of Bonham Carter, who was once described as resembling a dusty Victorian orphan rescued from a chimney, she adds: Helena wears whatever she wants and looks amazing.
But Keira might want to think twice before following in their footsteps as she admits: Ive become phobic of the red carpet because all I can think is Im going to be in the worst dressed list tomorrow.
