Naomi Watts In Erdem – 2013 ‘Take Home A Nude’ Benefit Art Auction And Party

Naomi Watts In Erdem - 2013 'Take Home A Nude' Benefit Art

Naomi Watts joined Lake Bell at the 2013 ‘Take Home a Nude’ Benefit Art Auction and Party at Sotheby’s in New York City on Tuesday.

The actress was classic in an Erdem flowery frock with bold yellow and pink blooms. The boatneck dress lost a bit of its fresh edge since her Danielle Michetti black pumps were a rather uninspired pairing for this ladylike look.

She accessorized with delicate Aurelie Bidermann earrings and a Calvin Klein Collection mini clutch, but her glossy berry-pink lip was the most dynamic addition.

Naomi Watts In Marchesa – ‘Diana’ Paris Premiere

Naomi Watts In Marchesa - 'Diana' Paris Premiere

Naomi Watts floated down the red carpet at the ‘Diana’ Paris premiere at the Cinema UGS Normandie in France on Friday evening.

The actress followed the white theme of her London premiere look with a romantic Marchesa Spring 2013 frock. However, this confection, while perhaps a bit unexpected, brought far more fantasy and allure.

The slight trapeze silhouette, in combination with the sheer lace detail and wispy chiffon-like layers, simultaneously had a sweet yet style-forward effect. The prettiness was amplified with her loosely swept-back updo and petal-pink lip.

The flash of that dark clutch was a fair reminder that Naomi’s embellished nude sandals were a thankful reprieve from black pumps, which would have wilted this delicate dress.

Naomi Watts In Saint Laurent – ‘Diana’ Premiere After-Party

Naomi Watts In Saint Laurent - 'Diane' Premiere After-Party

There were mixed reactions to Naomi Watts’ ‘Diana’ world premiere look, with an even 50/50 love/meh divide, but she fared much better at the after-party.

On this occasion she wore a Saint Laurent Fall 2013 LBD with a playful flocked polka-dot yoke and sleeves styled with a Tod’s clutch, keeping the same hairstyle from the premiere and swapping out the peep-toes for black Casadei pumps.

Saint Laurent is fast becoming the go-to label for luxe LBDs, with Lou Doillon, Lady Gaga and Rachel McAdams counted as fans.

Naomi Watts In Versace – ‘Diana’ World Premiere

Naomi Watts In Versace - 'Diane' World Premiere

Naomi Watts attended the world premiere of ‘Diana’ held at The Odeon Leicester Square in London this evening.

I was hoping for a BDOTY wow moment, yet sadly I feel totally underwhelmed.

Naomi wore a white Versace gown with a Liz Hurley-esque side slit, keyhole detail and asymmetrical neckline – but that’s not the underwhelming part. That has been reserved for the accessories – sans the Chopard jewels, of course.

The black Christian Louboutin ‘Hyper Prive’ peep-toes and black Edie Parker clutch mute the look, plus I am also turned off by the shiny makeup – yes, it was a very mild evening – and the lacklustre hair.

Sorry, but for such a grand occasion I was expecting more. A lot more.

Naomi Watts In Thakoon – ‘The Butler’ New York Premiere

It was couples night on the red carpet at the Ziegfeld Theater yesterday evening, as Liev Schreiber and Naomi Watts joined Oprah Winfrey and Stedman Graham and Keisha and Forest Whitaker on the red carpet for ‘The Butler’ New York premiere.

Liev and Naomi opted for relaxed looks, with Liev opting for a sleek midnight-blue suit sans tie.

Naomi wore a black Thakoon Resort 2014 jumpsuit featuring a sheer panel styled with black Saint Laurent sandals.

Gold jewels, fuchsia-pink lips and blown-out tresses provided the finishing touches.

I love the simplicity of both looks; even a clutch may have been overkill for Naomi’s look. She played it very well on this occasion.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Diane Kruger and Naomie Harris In Mary Katrantzou

BDOTW 5 Aug

It was a Mary Katrantzou double this week, as you voted for Diane Kruger wearing a look from the designer’s Resort 2014 collection and I picked Naomie Harris in a frock from the designer’s Fall 2013 collection.

I may have gone for Diane, as her dress has more of an interesting shape, but I couldn’t get past the hair.

When it came to the fellas, our choices differed. You selected the handsome Eddie Redmayne in his navy linen suit, while I was more enamoured with the pretty pink suit worn by RuPaul.

Naomi Watts In Alexander McQueen – ‘Ray Donovan’ LA Premiere

Naomi Watts In Alexander McQueen -  'Ray Donovan' LA Premiere

Naomi Watts and her actor beau Liev Schreiber attended Showtime’s new series premiere of ‘Ray Donovan’ held at the Directors Guild of America in Los Angeles, California yesterday evening.

He opted for a simple midnight-blue suit with an open white shirt.

Naomi wore an Alexander McQueen leather dress.

This is a huge departure from what we are used to seeing from Naomi and, while I always champion celebs stepping out of their comfort zones, I have to say I am not entirely crazy about this look.

My issue with this teardrop-neckline leather dress with a ruffled skirt is that it would’ve been better suited to Kate Moss; Naomi is a bit, dare I say, too vanilla to pull this off, even with the tousled tresses.

I think I would’ve preferred her in the purple suede version of this frock.

Black accessories including a Proenza Schouler ‘Lunch’ clutch, Sergio Rossi ‘Oblo’ sandals and a gold necklace completed her look.

Does this look work for you?

Summer Party On The Highline, Presented By Coach

Summer Party On The Highline, Presented By Coach

Last night, a bevy of ‘it-list’ beauties gathered for a carnival-themed Summer Party, presented by Coach, on New York City’s High Line. Here, some of the looks that weren’t all as light and luscious as I was anticipating.

Katie Holmes: The actress-cum-designer kept it cool in a white one-shoulder Chloé Resort 2013 dress, accented with a mauve Coach ‘Madison’ gathered twist clutch, brown Azzedine Alaïa gladiator sandals and black-lacquered nails. The silhouette could have been more flattering, as I don’t love what the gathered dropped waist is doing to her figure at this angle.

Naomi Watts: Pretty in light pink, Naomi wore a loose, button-down See by Chloé shirtdress with white Bruno Magli sandals. Her metallic-accented, leopard-print sunnies added some of the pop I was originally seeking. A Coach Poppy Mirror metallic flight bag completed her look.

Connie Britton: The ‘Nashville’ star stood out in a breezy, aqua-blue high-low dress, grounded with a pair of chocolate-brown platform sandals. She definitely wins the best hair award of the group, as it’s hard to argue with her effortless auburn waves.

Anna Kendrick: Seemingly neither ready for summer or for a festive party, the actress took a darker approach, which looked hot—literally. Black on top of black came with her skinny jeans, a leather vest, and a sheer, geometrically printed Joe’s blouse. She carried a chain-strap Coach Legacy flight bag . My feet hurt just a little seeing those heels at an event like this.
