How Many Dresses Is Keira Knightley Wearing?

We're well-versed in dress-layering tricks. Frocks over tees, skirts over shifts — we've tried it all. But, the dress that Keira Knightley wore to the Serpentine Summer Party in London yesterday takes the trend to new, color-crazed extremes. And, it's all thanks to Karl Lagerfeld.

Dressed in one of the Kaiser's creations from the Chanel resort '15 collection, Knightley chose a look that could easily be mistaken for three styles layered into one. The dress features a spotted, one-strap bodice with bits of navy and red; a 3-D, floral-patterned pencil skirt in a clash of pinks, purples, and sky blue; and, finally, a white, flowing, pleated fishtail bottom. Not only does this dress appear to be layered, it seems like it shouldn't make any logical sense at all. However, leave it to Keira — and her wedding-dress-recycling, Grace Kelly channeling, multi-talentedways to show just how harmonious this Chanel design actually is.
And, because we can all agree that this ensemble shines all on its own, Keira wisely let the rest the rest remain au naturale — a look this starlet has mastered with aplomb.

There you have it: Chanel's very own color- and texture-rich layered dress, perhaps even better off the runway than on.
