With her period drama The Duchess heading into theaters, PEOPLE caught up with Keira Knightley in Toronto to get her take on her icon-like style. “Have I managed to get to fashion icon status?” asked a shocked Keira. The modest star admits that she likes getting dressed up, but that she is definitely more of a jeans and T-shirt kind of girl. When she takes on the red carpet, Keira believes in going all out. Among her favorite recent gowns is a pink Chanel number she wore to last year’s Venice Film Festival. “I took one look at it and said ‘That’s far too girly, I’m not wearing that,”” recalls the star. “[But, then] I put it on and went ‘Oooh, this is fantastic!'” Though Keira has made headlines in some of the most beautiful gowns ever, they aren’t hanging in her closet. “I’m like Cinderella, they all go back at the end of the night.” Even still, it’s not too shabby to rock Chanel for the night! Check out more from Keira, including her thoughts on corsets and those pesky weight rumors, in this week’s PEOPLE Magazine. — reporting by Lesley Messer
