We admit sometimes we find it hard to pronounce certain names. Keira Knightley too had some trouble with names when she found herself in a spot after trying to pronounce Valentino creative directors Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli's names at the An Evening Honoring Valentino gala on Monday.

"It gives me great joy to be here tonight to honour Maria Grazia and Chiuri and Pierpaolo... Oh, I don't know how to say your surname, it's so difficult," Keira said. We don't think Maria and Pierpaolo would mind! Keira was stunning in a one-shoulder gown from the Italian label's Autumn Winter 2015 Couture collection.
