Naomi Watts In Givenchy Couture – 2014 Met Gala


Naomi Watts strutted down the red carpet for the 2014 Met Gala on Monday (May 5) in New York City.

Departing from her usual old Hollywood glamour, the ‘Diana’ star surprised us with a Givenchy Couture sheer gown. The intricate embroidery fading from white to black in the front, the open back, and the sheer black skirt make this look even more unique.

Adding to the sophistication, Namoi wore beaded earrings with her hair pulled back and natural fresh-face makeup.

While this was the right occasion to take her love for fashion to the next step, I kind of missed the old-school elegance mixed with modern chic, she usually gives us.

Also, is anyone else having a ‘Black Swan’ déjà vu or is it just me?

    Would have preferred if the skirt was solid, not sheer

    We’re not used to seeing such lookd from Naomi Watts, I think, so it feels a bit strange. She looks nice, though. However, I can’t ignore the way she’s posing in the first picture. You’re at the MET gala and you’re posing with your hands behind your back???

    While I am not the complete fan of the dress, I think this is one of the boldest and unexpected choice Watts has every made (Givenchy+Watt= who would have thought?) I think she could have pulled it off if she gave herself a more dramatic make up and hair. Wavy long hair (maybe with bangs) and darker lips would probably fit the GIvenchy image.

    She’s not pulling this off

    This dress is amazing but she let me down in a hair and make-up departament.

    This had to be the biggest shocker of the night, next to Lupita of course. So not what I was expecting. All I see is a mermaid mixed with a swan. Unfortunately not a good look.

    Looks like she’s wearing a rather large nappy (diaper) under the black skirt! She kills it normally but not this time.

    I do think that she pulls it off, I really like this look.

    Love this dress! But her, hair pulled back like that does it and her no favours.

    I think she looks really pretty.

    It looks like a fancy ombre toilet seat cover has been placed right over her pelvis. That, alone, is a “no”.

    the whole look is very meh, she needs a pop of colour – bold lips, shoes, clutch, whatever!

    Stunning dress yet Naomi’s make-up is too dull. It could have been a WOW, it is a mild let down.

  14. KC May 6, 2014 at 04:36 #

    It literally looks like her pelvis/midsection are molding.

  15. CTgirl May 6, 2014 at 04:33 #

    I think that she looks like a fish out of water here and I don’t dig this gown. That panel on the front that goes from her stomach down to her lulu is just ridiculous. Naomi is usually so much better than this.

    I actually find this dress rather ugly, i think it has to do with where the sheer skirt meets the grey scales. It’s nice that she took a departure from her normal glam looks but I don’t think she quite hit the mark.

      Agree. The dress looks unfinished and odd to me. I like the softness of the white fabrics and the grey on her, but the whole effect is unfortunate.

    The earrings could’ve been more statement-y, but otherwise it’s a chic couture look.

  18. Alina May 6, 2014 at 04:26 #

    It’s a stunning dress, but I feel like it’s not the right dress for Naomi.

    Does anyone else think that in the close-up she looks exactly like Hellen Mirren?

    Finally, a sheer dress that doesn’t look like Zara or Topshop, this looks classy, elegant, very couture. Im loving it!

    I am normally a huge fan of NW on the RC but I find this dress to be absolutely hideous and the hair and makeup woefully underdone. Disappointing.

    • Agi May 6, 2014 at 08:52 #

      I agree and also feel that white is not her colour at all, makes her look like she’s at deaths door…

    • Nat May 6, 2014 at 14:12 #

      I agree. She was a huge disappointment to me. Hair and make up does not go with the dress and the dress is not flattering at all.
