Keira Knightley talks Lagerfeld wedding gown

Keira Knightley thinks it would be "pretty generous" of Karl Lagerfeld if he designed her wedding dress.

The British actress is engaged to musician James Righton and there have already been reports that Chanel's Lagerfeld has offered to create her bridal gown.

Keira says her wedding plans are on hold for now though.

"Well, that would be pretty generous of him. He is an incredible designer. Would I say yes? To be honest, I'm working on another film straight after Anna Karenina, which finishes after Christmas. Then, maybe I'll start thinking about the dress and the guests and the venue," she told "It really depends on what sort of wedding I decide to have - if I go with a jeans and T-shirt option, then maybe it wouldn't be quite right. I haven't decided on anything yet."

Keira first collaborated with Lagerfeld in 2006 when she was named the face of Chanel's Coco Mademoiselle fragrance.

The 27-year-old beauty is in awe of the esteemed designer - even though she feels awkward in his presence at times.

"I was once in his Paris studio and it is, as you'd imagine, beautiful and I'm there getting changed into this amazing dress," she recalled. "He was there in the room too, so I have to go behind this big curtain thing - but the space is actually really small, so I spent a good amount of time trying hard not to flash at him. No one wants to expose themselves to Karl Lagerfeld.

"He really is such a nice man though, when you're shooting with him, he just sits there holding your hand. Working on a Chanel campaign is so different to working on a huge film; with Chanel I'm told to pout all I want!"
