Friday Fame: Naomi Watts

"I hate fashion perfection. To me, there is nothing more boring."

Earlier this week Elle hosted their annual Women in Hollywood event, to coincide with the November issue on the same theme, and Naomi Watts attended as an honoree. I was so struck with her look - the gorgeous dress and how perfectly it matched her skin tone, her breezy hair and charming make-up - so I couldn't help but feature her in another edition of Friday Fame!

I love that she did minimal accessorizing; it suits the overall look, and the David Yurman necklace adds the perfect bit of sparkle and balance. She looked refined and elegant, but also easygoing and natural, which I think is a testament to her truest personality. She always claims to have been a tomboy growing up, never a girly-girl (but she can rock both looks, which I love). Here are a few of my other favorite styles she's worn lately...

Menswear - I love this white pant suit! It's the perfect minimalist statement-maker. The masculine touch is totally transformed; it shows perfectly how character can be found in clothes beyond colors, patterns and textures. Play with the shapes and see where they take you!

Contrast – The muted tone on this dress is one of my favorites, and I love the pop of black in the booties. I never wear short boots with skirts because I just can't seem to pull off the look, but I think she did it so well here. Again, the lack of jewelry drew focus to the key pieces and made them even more striking.

September: Wearing Nina Ricci in France

Regal – Doesn't she look stunning here? I'm crazy about this dress, it just falls so perfectly and it's another great shade on her. The shoes and clutch add a bit of unexpected edge and bring the whole thing into a more modern take on classic elegance.

What do you think of Naomi's style? Were there any other honorees at the Women in Hollywood event you loved on the red (er, grey) carpet?
