It seems Keira Knightley isn't impressing the British tabloids lately. The normally beloved young actress was taken to task in both The Sun and The Mirror for her lack of fashion sense, and her odd, drunken behaviour this past Saturday night in London.
The Sun hits hard with this piece on Keira's fashion choices, even pointing out that she was seen wearing the same outfit, both while out shopping during the day, and then later out partying at a club.
You would think with her movie millions that KEIRA KNIGHTLEY could afford to buy a new outfit for an evening on the town.
But the Pirates Of The Caribbean beauty didn't even bother to get changed for a romantic date with actor pal RUPERT FRIEND at Kinky Mambo in Islington on Saturday.
She was spotted wearing the SAME hideous flowery shorts suit she was shopping in earlier in the day.
Her clothes have a remarkable resemblance to PETE DOHERTY's charity-style drag outfit . . . and in my eyes any comparison with the BABYSHAMBLES singer is a bad one.
Keira, I thought you donated dresses to Oxfam, not bought your wardrobe there.
Then The Mirror makes a point of knocking Keira for her apparently excessive drinking, which, of all things, seemed to have caused her to ditch the privacy of the VIP room, to dance with her friends just outside the bathrooms.
KEIRA Knightley left clubbers aghast when she shunned a club's VIP room to disco dance by the lav.
The 21-year-old moved her party of 10 - including boyfriend Rupert Friend - from the celeb section of London's Paper club to a spot outside the loos.
But not before knocking back several green tequila shots, we're told. Ah, that explains it...
Our spy said: "People kept doing double-takes as they came out - but Keira just smiled as if it was nothing out of the ordinary."
He added: "She was so smashed when she left at 3.30am she hid her face under a woolly beanie." With a vacant stare, presumably.
I'll give the girl a pass on the drunken frolicking, since in the celebrity world, that's pretty much as tame as it gets, but I have to side with The Sun on their criticism of Keira's sense of fashion, or lack thereof. I'm not sure what's worse here, the flowery dress, the leggings, or those awful shoes. And the "wooly beanie" isn't helping out any. Lucky for her she's otherwise flawless. Then again, if she wasn't so damn pretty, I don't think anyone would really care what she was wearing.
Check out more pictures of Keira Knightley and her boyfriend, Rupert Friend, who earily reminds me of Skeletor (but not in that Nicole Richie way), after the jump.
