Sartorial chameleon Naomi Watts is no doubt saving her most opulent efforts for Sunday, but the look she wore to BVLGARI’s Decades of Glamour Pre-Oscar Party in Los Angeles on Tuesday is giving us high expectations.
After jetting back from the brand's presentation in Milan, Naomi played host for the night in a strapless, straight-off-the-runway Altuzarra gown from the designer’s Fall 2014 collection. On the runway it was worn with slicked-back hair and bare shoulders, drawing attention to the designer’s careful use of cut and color, but Naomi took a risk by adding bright lipstick and a vintage necklace with amethyst and emerald jewels.
Given that she was hosting the event, it was a risk that paid off. The jewels and lipstick complemented the neon accents on her dress perfectly, more than standing up to equally solid efforts from her red carpet companions Camilla Belle, Kate Hudson and Emmy Rossum. We’re also thinking it’d be an easy look to emulate on a non-Hollywood salary. Well played, Naomi.
