Teen British screen siren Keira Knightley refuses to have a stylist, after one bad experience in hot pants turned her off fashion professionals.

The PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN star took offense at being told she was "bitchin'", and insists the image of pop beauty Kylie Minogue doesn't suit her.

Knightley says, "I always remember the occasion when a stylist was trying to get me into a pair of gold hot pants by saying I was 'bitchin'.

"I mean, Kylie looks great, but you have to have a particular kind of bottom, ie not mine."
