London, Mar 2 : She might be a big fashion icon for millions, but when it comes to Keira Knightley's own style influences, the actress admits that some of them are totally bizarre.
The 22-year-old stems her inspiration from the reigning queens of the worst dressed lists, actress Helena Bonham Carter and batty Icelandic singer Bjork.
"I don't think I'm confident enough yet to be used to being in the limelight because of my style," The Daily Express quoted her, as saying.
"But I loved the swan dress Bjork wore to the 2001 Oscars [below]. I'd love to have the courage to do the same," she added.
And of Bonham Carter, who was once described as "resembling a dusty Victorian orphan rescued from a chimney", she adds: "Helena wears whatever she wants and looks amazing."
But Keira might want to think twice before following in their footsteps as she admits: "I've become phobic of the red carpet because all I can think is I'm going to be in the worst dressed list tomorrow."
