She might have starred in 2007 hit Atonement, but Keira Knightley has few amends to make when it comes to her fashion history.

The British actress, 36, has crafted a reputation as one of Hollywood's best dressed women during her decades in the spotlight.

The Academy Award nominee burst on to the scene with her performance in 2001's Bend It Like Beckham, and soon became a regular leading lady on the silver screen with turns in Pirates of the Caribbean, Love Actually and Anna Karenina.

Knightley, who is married to British musician James Righton, is particularly renowned for her work on period dramas such as Pride & Prejudice and The Duchess.

However, when it comes to her personal style, the star veers more towards ethereal than Regency era.

As a Chanel ambassador, Knightley can often be seen in the French maison's timeless designs, whether boucle midis, classic boxy jacket or flowing tulle dresses.

The star also sports romantic Valentino designs on the regular, and has a penchant for Rodarte's dreamy, whimsical creations.

Here, we take a look at how the star's style has evolved throughout her time in the spotlight.
