Naomi Watts In Armani Privé – 2013 Oscars


Naomi Watts literally sparkled as she made her way down the red carpet at the 2013 Oscars, hosted at the Dolby Theater, on Sunday evening.

To celebrate her nomination in ‘The Impossible’ Naomi opted for a custom Armani Privé gown. The grey-ish, silver-y sequin gown was a perfect combination of stunning and sexy. Naomi definitely stood out on the red carpet in this beautiful one-shoulder cutout design.

The fully sequined gown called for minimal accessories, and Naomi piled on just the right about of bling with an eye-catching bracelet, cocktail ring, and diamond drop earrings.

The actress knows a good hairstyle that works: the slightly messy updo. The volume of her hair, rosy cheeks and light pink lip complimented the metallic gown perfectly.

    Wow! Best dressed without a doubt! She blew me away!

  2. Kathy February 26, 2013 at 18:32 #

    Best dressed of the night! I love the neckline and the silver sequins. It’s futuristic, avant-garde, and yet very classy at the same time. Lady Gaga could borrow a few tips from Naomi (since she loves the out-there, metallic-with-an-edge look).

  3. Louise February 26, 2013 at 10:31 #

    My favourite from a relatively lacklustre event. Charlize is my number 2, Jennifer Lawrence number 3.

  4. Nadine February 26, 2013 at 01:38 #

    Wow. (And I thought I liked her before.)

  5. Liz February 26, 2013 at 00:32 #

    This look is fantastic. I love the cut of this dress.

  6. robbie February 25, 2013 at 19:23 #

    words fail me, i cant describe how much i adore thise look.

  7. Stel February 25, 2013 at 18:12 #

    Very elegant, very sexy, very classy!! Great!

  8. kathryn February 25, 2013 at 17:16 #

    Hands down the best look of the night! The dress was one of the few interesting and dramatic looks of the night. I love the styling. Kerry Washington is a close second followed by Stacy Keibler but overall this year’s red carpet was a let down.

  9. Felicia February 25, 2013 at 16:19 #

    I just flat out love this with all my heart

  10. Parvati February 25, 2013 at 16:16 #

    She’s probably my best dressed of this year’s Oscars! Very interesting dress and really nice hair and make-up!

  12. Colleen February 25, 2013 at 14:10 #

    One word: stunning. My favorite of the night.

  13. Dee February 25, 2013 at 11:41 #

    Okay, I let out a string of expletives when I saw this one. Mind-numbingly gorgeous.

  14. Beta February 25, 2013 at 10:21 #

    I still havent decided, but I think she’s my favourite. The right amount of fashion sizzle, plus she really looks radiant!
    I was rooting for her because she’s so talented :/

  15. Noemi February 25, 2013 at 09:44 #

    Perfect, one of the best of the night, beautiful dress and styling, I love the hair.

  16. Andy February 25, 2013 at 09:32 #


    My favorite of the night. I cant describe how happy I am to see her break away from the safe choices she often favors. I love the futuristic feel of the dress and the clean lines that contrast with the glitz of the sequins.

  17. Aline February 25, 2013 at 05:58 #

    AMAZING! She’s def on my top 3, maybe even my favorite, although I still have to thoroughly think about that.

    But anyway, she pulls this off so gracefully. This dress crowns the awesomeness that was her award season. Her recent RC looks and her amazing performance on The Impossible made me start a girl crush on her. Hopefully she’ll continue with the awesome work.

  18. Mol February 25, 2013 at 05:55 #

    My new number two – my top two are from Armani prive (Jessica Chastain is my number 1). The color is stunning

  19. Matlock February 25, 2013 at 05:46 #

    Naomi and Charlize are my best dressed of the night. And i usually don’t like that bling-bling material.

  20. Prudence February 25, 2013 at 05:36 #

    this is great but theres like something missing or maybe its her the problem. I feel had someone more statuesque worn this id be like dying but on her its jst okay

  21. Tiffany February 25, 2013 at 05:30 #

    Probably my best dressed of the night. It’s sexy but elegant. So stunning!

  22. the ogre February 25, 2013 at 05:25 #

    she looks like a dream come true. i don’t care about the cut out much but she looks fantastic. the make up the hair all the works! great stuff!

  23. Yeliz February 25, 2013 at 05:20 #

    LOVE!!! I knew Naomi wouldn’t disappoint, since she had an amazing run during awards season and this has to be her best look. Love everything about it, she looks breathtaking.

  24. Lashae February 25, 2013 at 05:19 #

    This would be my best dressed of the night!!!

  25. Stephanie February 25, 2013 at 05:08 #

    STUNNING amongst the sea of pale and chiffon and bland.

  26. DM February 25, 2013 at 04:21 #

    I do like this, despite the shimmer effect being a tad predictable at this point. For me what makes the look a winner is the beautiful pink lip and the ever-so-slightly messy hair. Well done!

  27. taksi February 25, 2013 at 03:53 #

    I get why she chose it…I just feel like it’s so forced. I don’t know I feel like for this year, something less structured would have been better..

  28. TeaAtTwo February 25, 2013 at 03:45 #

    Of the interesting looks of the night, she looks good.

  29. Moxie February 25, 2013 at 03:39 #

    Loved this! Finally someone did something a little risky, and I think it paid off.

  30. Dhppy February 25, 2013 at 03:34 #

    Why would Armani go into such obvious Stella McCartney territory? I think it looks a bit silly.

  31. Dani February 25, 2013 at 03:27 #

    What a winner! Stunning from head to toe and my absolute favourite so far. Cannot get over that face, that figure and that dress.

  32. lei February 25, 2013 at 03:20 #

    WOW!! Best dressed!!

  33. jones19 February 25, 2013 at 03:05 #

    Stunning! And I love the fact that she was involved in the designing process.

  34. fromchi-town February 25, 2013 at 02:51 #

    This is one of my faves from tonight. Loved it that she took a risk and it paid off. She looks flawles.

    • anmelt February 25, 2013 at 03:17 #

      ITA, I love that she took a risk and stands out. My jaw dropped to the floor when I saw her. She looks amazing.

  35. Angela February 25, 2013 at 02:49 #

    So far, this look has shot to the top of my “best dressed” list, and so far it’s standing head and shoulders above everybody else (KW being the second) I love the futuristic feel I’m getting, the unconventional looks win me over at big events such as these because there tend to be many bland dresses that are forgotten in an instant.

  36. Marybeth February 25, 2013 at 02:37 #

    The color and sparkle are very flattering to her.
    I like the silhouette, the hair, the make-up, the styling.
    I just don’t like the lines of the cut-out. It doesn’t work for me.

  37. vicky February 25, 2013 at 02:30 #

    Love it! On my top five of the night, wouldn’t change a thing!

  38. anjos February 25, 2013 at 02:26 #

    The best. Love the futuristic feel.

  39. Feer February 25, 2013 at 02:23 #

    I can’t find words to describe, how i feel, how SHOCKED i am to read that ARMANI PRIVE did that tacky and awful dress i mean.. jesus, i can find that same dress in a store next to my house, and i mean EXACT, i know the fabric and whatever is what make it expensive but… i meeean NAOMI, why.. why she is by far my biggest dissapointment. … Why.

    • Dani February 25, 2013 at 03:28 #

      photo of exact dress?

  40. CreoleLady February 25, 2013 at 02:20 #

    OMG, who is this vision and what has she done with mild and meek Naomi Watts?! Actually, she’s been stepping up her style game over the last several months and this seems to be the incredible culmination. Look how the color of the dress brings out her eyes. Armani Prive, two for two, wow.

  41. TL February 25, 2013 at 02:20 #

    Sensational! Love everything from Head to toe. She is one of my top 5 favorites definitely.

  42. Elise February 25, 2013 at 02:19 #

    One of the best dressed, at least the neckline is something different.

  43. msd February 25, 2013 at 02:18 #

    Finally, someone takes a risk. I don’t altogether love this but it’s interesting, fits like a glove and is styled well.

  44. Nat39 February 25, 2013 at 02:18 #

    Can´t say that I really love this gown, but it certainly stands out, and she is carrying it off really well.

  45. MaddyEliza February 25, 2013 at 02:18 #

    OH MY GOODNESS. Wow. Love love love this look!! I am blown away!! This is absolutely perfect and then some!! Definitely one of my best dressed. What an amazing and stunning look!!!

  46. Christine February 25, 2013 at 02:17 #

    She was one of my favorites from tonight! Stunning!

  47. EmmaWoodhouse February 25, 2013 at 02:16 #

    I know that everyone else is going to love this, but I don’t like the cutout part. It just dips too low and tackifies the look. Besides that, I like the color, embellishments, and her styling. But it isn’t wowing me.

    • Nat39 February 25, 2013 at 02:27 #

      I´m also not quite loving the design of the top part – it is a bit on a cheap/tacky side unfortunately, I agree.
      But it´s still thumbs up from me on the overall look, she pulls it off.

    • snowlion February 25, 2013 at 02:37 #

      Agree that the cut out is not that great.

    • justme February 25, 2013 at 08:16 #

      I agree.
      The cutout detail is not well done. I appreciate the risky choice but it’s not working for me.

    • dee February 25, 2013 at 13:59 #

      I don’t like the cut-out part either. The color is gorgeous, hair and makeup are on point.

      • Ramsay February 25, 2013 at 23:30 #

        Yes I don’t like this at all – this unusual but in no way fashion forward – Her Golden Globes looks was much bolder

  48. Cindy February 25, 2013 at 02:16 #

    This was a risk that paid off. She looked beautiful.

  49. Bec February 25, 2013 at 02:15 #

    Easily my fave so far!

  50. Laura February 25, 2013 at 02:14 #

    • Linda February 25, 2013 at 13:18 #

      Yes, as soon as I saw her last night I knew I had found my favourite, although I have to say Nicole Kidman is not far behind.

    • S-R February 25, 2013 at 16:32 #

      +1. Love, love, love this dress!

      • DSI February 25, 2013 at 17:30 #

      Best dressed no doubt!

    • Francois Bresmal March 1, 2013 at 21:33 #

      I think she’ll be mt best dressed too! It’s amazing how a cut out detail can add this sexiness & edginess to a look
