Pride and Prejudice may well be the first instance of chick lit. The Jane Austen novel has been made into a mini series, several movies and even got its own zombie-themed book. Millions of women across the world delude themselves into thinking they are just like the self-sufficient heroine Elizabeth Bennet (not that we’re exempt), which is why the story is still popular 200 years later. Here is the 2005 film version starring our beloved Keira Knightley as Elizabeth. She wears this ethereal silk white dress to a ball, where she and Mr. Darcy dance around the room – and their feelings for each other. The satin ribbon around her waist and pearls in her hair finish off the simple, yet divine look. Costume designer Jacqueline Durran also worked with Knightley in the stunning film Atonement. It’s no surprise she was nominated for an Academy Award for this film, too. Darcy and Elizabeth seem to have nothing but contempt for each other when they talk, but this dress is as romantic as they both truly feel.
