Keira Knightley's style transformation

Since her breakthrough role in Bend it Like Beckham, Keira Knightley has become one of Britain's biggest actresses, starring alongside Johnny Depp in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise and earning critical acclaim for her portrayal as Elizabeth Bennet in Pride & Prejudice.
