Trend: How celebs styled out the pandemic

·2-min read

While some celebrities resorted to loungewear during the Covid-19 pandemic, other famous faces clung to couture.

Actress Keira Knightley pulled out all the stops with her make-up and clothes while spending time at home with her two young daughters. Determined to make each day special, Keira raided her wardrobe and donned some of her favourite designer creations.

"We have a trampoline in our garden, and we decided we were only allowed to wear dresses on it," she told Harper's Bazaar in June.

"I put on red lipstick every day and every bit of Chanel that I have in my cupboard, and my daughter Edie had Chanel ribbons plaited into her hair and fairy wings," Keira, an ambassador for Chanel, added.

"I thought, 'What is the point of these lovely things sitting in the wardrobe, when it feels quite apocalyptic and scary outside?' It felt so important to be really happy for the kids."

Keira even insisted her rocker husband James Righton could only join in playtime if he was wearing one of his brightly coloured Gucci suits.

While Keira glammed up to cope with the global health crisis, The Crown actress Gillian Anderson admitted the pandemic made her realise how much she hates wearing restrictive clothing.

Usually admired for her glamourous red-carpet style, Gillian has mostly been chilling out in comfortable black track pants and matching hoodies for the past year or so.

And along with her cosy sportswear, the star has adopted another style rule - no more bras.

"I've gotten so lazy and I don't wear a bra anymore. I can't wear a bra. I can't, no, I can't. I'm sorry," she said while hosting an Instagram Live last week. "I don't care if my breasts reach my belly button, I'm not wearing a bra anymore. It's just too f**king uncomfortable."

And now even the elegant Gemma Chan has admitted she felt "so out of practice" while walking the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival last weekend.

The Crazy Rich Asians star, who wowed in a stunning custom gold sequin gown from Oscar de la Renta, revealed to People that glamming up for the event felt quite odd.

"Not used to walking in heels either," Gemma said. "It's definitely, it's a little bit overwhelming... It's been a while since I've done a live red carpet, I feel like it's been a year and a half, maybe.

"I've been in elasticated waists... It's been an adjustment getting back into the swing of it, but it's nice."

The L'Oreal Paris spokeswoman also said her beauty routine has changed since the pandemic as she has been wearing less make-up and giving her skin "a break".
