Naomi Watts attended the 2011 National Board of Review Awards Gala in New York City yesterday.

The event took place on the same day as Stella McCartney’s Pre-Fall 2012 collection, so it’s no surprise that Stella’s bestie wore a look from that collection.

Naomi’s navy and gold beaded loose-fitting dress was teamed with black faux-leather pumps.

I personally would’ve preferred the dress to have been more nipped in at the waist and the shoes to have been more dainty and less clunky, but Naomi makes it work for her.

It’s unfortunate that she gives herself helmet hair by pushing her hair behind her ear.

She arrived wearing a black wool cape and a black leather ‘Grace’ clutch from the same Stella McCartney Pre-Fall 2012 collection.
