Keira Knightley Proves Nude Can Work on the Red Carpet

Leith Clark should receive a gold medal in event styling.

Let me be honest with you, there has indeed been talk around Fashionista offices of launching a sub-site chronicling the red carpet fashions of Keira Knightley and Nicola Peltz. Each actress has been killing it recently, to the point where we can barely keep up with their sartorial victories. 

But until that dream site launches, I'll have to keep waxing poetic about Knightley and Peltz here. Thursday's topic: Knightley's nude Simone Rocha dress. 

At a London photocall for "Begin Again," Knightley was bold enough to wear a mid-length, skin-tone dress with metallic Miu Miu mary-janes–a style not for the faint of fashion hearts. But with the expertise of her stylist, Leith Clark, and her hair and makeup team, Knightley avoided a faux pas and nailed the prim look. 

Take this as a lesson: Nude garments can work. Choose something with clever embellishments and a floaty silhouette and be sure to accessorize it with a bold shoe. Do this and–voila!–you're bending it like Beckham–er, nailing it like Knightley, I mean.
