Fame10 Fashion Evolution: Naomi Watts
Following the tendency of many stars during their initial debut on the red carpet, Naomi Watts fell victim to a few fashion mistakes during her early years in Hollywood. Despite the occasional fashion blunder, her style evolved significantly over the years into the mature and elegant signature look we know her for today. Her classic cropped blonde tresses always look flawless and her many best dressed gowns quickly turned her from an unknown Australian actress into a style icon. Her grace and confidence on the red carpet really make her stand out as the movie star she is. Watch Naomi Watts transform from an inexperienced newbie to a red carpet vixen throughout the years in our Fame10 fashion evolution:
Los Angeles Premiere of Le Divorce — 2003
Watts made her debut on the red carpet in 2003 at the premiere of Le Divorce in a knee-length blush pink gown. Despite the film taking place in Paris, one of the world’s fashion capitals, Watts definitely did not pick up on fashion clues while filming. The gown had confusing details that did not flow together, including buttons that lined the front of the dress, adding an inappropriate casual vibe to the look. The button embellishments were also mixed with bust and waist ruching, which the did not play well off each other. The texture of the gown seemingly resembled lingerie and the colour washed out her complexion. This moment was definitely not one of Watts’ finest in the fashion department.
Los Angeles Premiere of The Painted Veil –– 2006
During one of her earlier red carpet debuts, Naomi Watts appeared on the red carpet wearing an awkwardly shaped knee-length dress. The neutral colour of the dress definitely flattered Watt’s tan complexion and blonde locks, but the details of the dress drastically held this look back. The shape of the skirt had unsightly bubbles that seem completely unnecessary and the chunky belt took away from the delicate simplicity the dress could otherwise have. Her shoes also seemed slightly too coordinated by playing off the nude and black on her dress. We would have preferred a solid colour shoe that was less distracting.
