The Look For Less: Keira Knightley's Emerald Green Atonement Dress

The Look For Less: Keira Knightley's Emerald Green Atonement Dress

Atonement costume designer Jacqueline Durran chose emerald green for Keira Knightley's character because to her, the hue symbolizes temptation. She certainly found the perfect color (which was a mixture of lime green silk, black and green organza, and green chiffon) because the dress is loved by nearly every girl who has seen the flick. Lucky for us, there's a look for less!

To see the less expensive version,

Faviana's Celebrity-Inspired Green Gown ($238) is nearly an identical copy of Keira's version. But unlike the actress' dress, it's not as low-cut, which is a good thing considering it would be hard to wear in real life. Should it sell out, visit Faviana's website for more info.

I love this dress on the film and on kiera knightly, its stunning. This one is not so hot, the colour and the fabric look not so perfect. I've found a better version for cheaper :P.

Keira's is gorgeous. The imitation one is a little too shiny but from what i have come to understand, the one in the movie got it's great texture and color because they had the silk dress made then, washed it to wear the shine out a bit. I'm not entirely sure if that rumor is true though.

i own this dress! it's my prom dress and it was a little pricey but we got a good deal on it. I did get it taken up in the top though, because it did look like a sack haha. but once it was fitted it looked gorgeous. i love the dress, it's so different and it fit so well, and i have a hard time finding things that fit i love it! i can't wait til prom so i can wear it. i can't pick it up until may third though, which makes me sad =[ what color shoes do you suggest i wear?

I fell head over heals in love with the original dress when I first saw it, and since have been trying to find a suitable copy to wear to prom- but this doesn't really cut it for me. The color is way off from that gorgeous green, looks awfully shiny compared to original, and it doesn't fit to the shape like the gown from which it was inspired. Oh, and it's hella expensive for prom. Call me bitter and picky, but it is just fug.

I saw this dress in person at the Arclight movie theater by my house. It wasn't even behind glass....just on a mannequin behind a rope. It is STUNNING.

I haven't got round to seeing the film yet, but I assumed she was a wearing a green dress because in the book the dress is green. But the style of the dress keira is wearing is pretty much exactly as I imagined, and the colour of the second dress is exactly as I imagined.

Keira looks gorgeous in her dress! Old Hollywood glamorous!! The model in the other dress is...meh..

If the look for less dress was the same color as the movie dress, I would be tempted to buy this. One reason the movie dress was so amazing was the great shade of green. The look for less dress's color is just blah.

The Atonement dress is so beautiful! Although I don't understand why Keira Knightley wore that particular dress, it just doesn't seem to fit her and having her wear it takes away the beauty of the dress. The look for less is nice too, but it seems to be a lighter shade of green than the Atonement dress.
