The outfit Keira Knightley chose to get married in this past weekend was much more low-key than anyone expected, what with the rumors that Karl Lagerfeld had been concocting some elaborate couture confection for her big day.

The outfit Keira Knightley chose to get married in this past weekend was much more low-key than anyone expected, what with the rumors that Karl Lagerfeld had been concocting some elaborate couture confection for her big day.

Instead, Knightley chose a blush-toned knee-length strapless tulle frock, paired with peach ballet flats, a cream Chanel bouclé jacket and a floral wreath around her head. We think she--and her new husband, Klaxons' James Righton--looked absolutely adorable.

However, in a surprising twist that the British press is almost making sound like a scandal, one outlet noticed that the wedding dress bore a striking resemblance to a Rodarte dress Knightley wore to an event in 2008, on the arm of another man. Gasp!

Since the actress told us as recently as November that she still had “no idea” what she'd be wearing, it seems there's a good chance she threw this look together relatively last minute--which we kind of love. Hey, if we had to wear red carpet-worthy white gowns on the reg, we'd repurpose them for our wedding too!

We've reached out to Rodarte for confirmation and will let you know if we hear back.

UPDATE: Chanel confirms via Vogue UK that Knightley's dress was a Chanel couture "spring/summer 2006 pale grey, tulle, bustier dress that came to the knee, accessorised with a white, tweed jacket created especially by Karl Lagerfeld, as well as pink and grey ballet pumps."
