Fashion Flashback - Keira Knightley Then & Now


Keira Knightley (Getty)It's comforting to know that one of our biggest style and beauty crushes wasn't always the perfectly poised and immaculately dressed star she is today. Keira Knightley's first red carpet appearances were a bit experimental as she found her footing in the fashion world.

The actress dabbled in everything from slinky and sexy to girly and froufrou before landing at her signature regal elegance. When seeing her romantic updos we almost forget she once sported that rocker pixie cut, and when she steps out in a delicate Valentino gown she erases our memory of gold studded belts and gaping drapery. Almost. For a refresher, let's take a look at Keira's inspiring sartorial evolution with these amazing before and after photos.
