No one element stands out as anything particularly special in Keira Knightley's 2015 Oscars makeup. It's a look anyone could wear because it's Thursday. Right? Yet there's a subtle earthiness, something sultry in its muted tones. And it's a dead-easy look to recreate.

Nominated for Best Supporting Actress in The Imitation Game, mum-to-be Keira Knightley wore a dusty-nude floral gown by Valentino.
