As his long-term muse it was no surprise that Keira Knightley invited Karl Lagerfeld to attend her and James Righton’s intimate wedding in the South of France earlier this year, and asked him to design her frothy short wedding dress. Although many claimed that Keira recycled a Rodarte dress on her wedding day, the actress actually wore a Chanel Couture gown.

Remaining modest about his wedding design, Karl explained: “But it is very simple.”

"She had the least pretentious wedding ever," said Lagerfeld. "The whole thing was relaxed. I think that it's perfect. After all, they lived together for quite a time. It's not as if she is a young girl of 18 who sees the husband for the first time. She is not a country girl. Yes, I liked the light-heartedness of this wedding."
Praising her acting abilities in his new film focusing on the opening of the his first store in Deauville, Karl said: "Keira was genius, no? I work well with her. Very easy. Keira has zero problem in her way of behaving and she knows everybody.'
