Valentino spearheaded the costume design for the highly-acclaimed opera, “La Traviata.” Many famous celebrities and fashion icons jetted to Rome to see the opera, including Keira Knightley. The actress seemed to get the Valentino memo since she wore a gorgeous dress from the fashion powerhouse when she attended the performance.

The 31-year-old showed off her slender body in a Grecian-style Valentino Fall 2015 halter neck velvet evening gown. Her floor-length velvet frock featured a small train and a bare back — the kind of simplicity and elegance perfect for an opera night. Keira hid a pair of Valentino “Strass” sandals underneath the velvet dress.
