No fuss, no muss: Keira Knightley’s weekend wedding to Klaxons keyboardist James Righton epitomized their relationship in the public eye. The couple, who have been together for about two years, are known for their laissez-faire approach to life. While they can’t avoid being photographed by the paparazzi—arm-in-arm at the airport or walking the streets of Soho, for example—they don’t seek the spotlight and tend to keep out of the public eye. At their town hall wedding in the South of France this Saturday, laid-back style was key. Reminiscent of the 1954 wedding of Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio—who both donned suits at San Francisco town hall—the down-to-earth actress recycled a knee-length tulle Rodarte frock she was first seen wearing in 2008, with the addition of a classic Chanel jacket, beige flats and a simple ring of flowers in her hair. Even the engagement ring that Knightley wears is a diamond solitaire in the simplest of platinum settings. We won’t be surprised if Knightley’s less-is-more approach becomes a wedding trend in the coming years. If a wealthy actress (estimated to be worth $47 million) doesn’t need to break the bank to get married, why do we?

Update: Keira’s blush dress was actually Chanel Couture Spring 2006.
