Naomi Watts In Elie Saab – ‘The Impossible’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Believe it or not, but I have been trying to get the BDOTW poll up since Friday. Every time I start working on it, another gorgeous gown hits the red carpet in Venice or Toronto.

This time it was Naomi Watts who halts proceedings wearing a gorgeous Elie Saab Resort 2013 gown to the Toronto Film Festival premiere for ‘The Impossible’.

As we know blush and nude have been Naomi favourite red carpet colours of late, so this lavender gown is a breath of fresh air.

The dress, like all Elie dresses, fits like a glove.

I love the daring plunging neckline and the double pleated detail on the waist plus I’m grateful she kept the belt.

Gold accessories, a slick back ‘do and gorgeous smile completes this look, which sees the actress take a large step out of her comfort zone….finally.

Despite one hiccup, Mr Saab is having an amazing week.

    The hair is a major turn-off for me, the dress is lovely but the hair just too harsh for the overall look

    LOVE!!! She looks hot.

    I really dislike this look. She looks matronly with this hairstyle and the color doesn’t do anything for her skin tone. I imagine this dress worn by Jessica Chastain with better results.

    I don’t like how the skirt looks on her and I’m not a fan of the hairstyle either.

    She looks hot in this dress. It fits her shape perfectly 🙂

    Eh. I don’t know, it’s not really doing it for me. I don’t think Naomi is doing the dress justice.

      I feel the same way. Her posture is awful and she looks washed out.

        I agree, her posture kills it for me. I do love the color on her, though

    Oh wow, we totally fall in love with Naomi’s lavender plunging gown with peplum details by Elie Saab which she style it well with slick back hair and gold accessories!! Blush and nude, stay aside coz now lavender is hitting the trend chart, just ask our King Kong actress!!

    BDOTW for me!

    Gorgeous dress that looks spectacular on her. But I am not loving her hair.

    Wow, what a great color! The plunging neckline is a little low for me, but other than that this is a beautiful gown and such a daring–and great–look for Naomi, who tends to veer too vanilla. This vibrant mauve shade is perfect for her! So glad to see her switching things up–and what better to do it in than an Elie Saab gown?

    She looks amazing in this dress!! I have a feeling we will be seeing a lot of Elie Saab this season!!

    Gorgeous color! It’s so nice to see her in something other than Stella McCartney or Marchesa.
