Keira was joined by her husband of seven months, James Righton, at the SeriousFun Gala which took place at London's Roundhouse. The Klaxons band member looked dapper in a dark tuxedo and bow tie, and lovingly embraced his wife on the red carpet.Apart from wearing the Chanel design at her nuptials, when she paired it with a matching white Chanel tweed jacket, Keira had sported the frock long before her May wedding.The 28-year-old was

first spotted wearing it at a pre-BAFTA party

back in 2008, making Tuesday's occasion the second time she has worn it at a red carpet event.

Before tying the knot, Keira had hinted that she wasn't going to spend her time on a lengthy hunt for the perfect gown."I don't need to have all that," she said. "I'm just trying to enjoy the engagement bit.""It really depends on what sort of wedding I decide to have – if I go with a jeans and T-shirt option, then maybe it wouldn't be quite right."
