Atonement, the film adaptation of the new classic by Ian McEwan, tells a story of star-crossed love during World War II. One thing that did work out in the end was Keira Knightley's wardrobe- every costume was a winner, but who could possibly forget that stunning green dress from the pivotal love scene between Keira and James McAvoy? A to-die-for kelly green wisp of an evening gown has been called "the best movie costume of all time" (better than Scarlett O'Hara's curtain dress? Um.....) and was designed by British costume designer Jacqueline Durran.
While you may not be able to pick up the original for yourself a similarly colored (and easier to wear) everyday dress by Design History is available at Bluefly.com for $60.00. Soft , swept back hair and a smoky eye complete the look, and try a silver cuff or bangle for a film-inspired style.
