Fugger: Naomi Watts

Fugs and Fabs: Celebs at the Airport


In which I stretch the definition of this feature a bit and include not just celebs at the airport, but also celebs arriving at the Hotel du Cap in Nice. ‘Tis the season for Cannes!

Cannes Fugs or Fabs: Naomi Watts and Susan Sarandon


I’ve decided these two got ready together in the hotel and crawled down three bottles of Champers. I have no particular reason for that, other than thinking it’d be entertaining for all the flies on the wall. “FEEL THE BERN, NAOMI,” Susan would say, pointing sharply at Naomi with the neck of the bottle. “FEEL IT NOW OR PERISH.”

Met Gala Well Played, Naomi Watts in Burberry


It seems I am utterly incapable of resisting Naomi Watts in a strapless shiny column dress. But what can I say? We all have a type!

I think this is magical, and it also looks as if it’s made of the metallic plates they staple to the outside of the Space Shuttle for Science Reasons. Like, this dress is gorgeous on her and if she and Liev attach it to the roof of their townhouse today, they can probably bring down energy costs. It’s a win-win!

Fug or Fine: Naomi Watts in Prada


The pluses: Naomi’s lipstick is gorgeous, and she does not NAB.

The minuses: Everything else, potentially. The bodice is juggling her EXTREMELY strangely, and I don’t love the union of the neck and waist ties. It’s like a nightgown got too bored with itself even to bother finishing its identity crisis.

Fug or Fab: Naomi Watts in Valentino


Part of me is concerned this is too bland:

And the rest of me wants to plonk her into my Fictional English Mini-Series where she clearly belongs, in which she plays an heiress of iron will but tragically delicate health who, in a final act of defiance, leaves her massive fortune (made thanks to her father’s coal mines) not to her mean husband but rather to her kind and wonderful cousin, so that he can finally move to Tangiers and continue painting handsome men there, as God intended.

She may have to change her shoes.

Unfug or Fab: Naomi Watts in Valentino


Something about this movie, Demolition, clearly makes Naomi reach for the ruffles. She wore this fluttery Balmain to the movie’s premiere in Toronto in September, and now that it’s being released wide, here’s what she picked:

I think… for me this is such a pretty, romantic idea. But the color underneath the ruffles, which we can see around the waistband, feels like such a muddy mint shade. And I don’t like how obvious and distracting the triangular seam is there where the ruffle attaches. Staring at how it’s put together takes the lightness out of it for me — I complain about this with satin a lot, for example, because some fabrics just show the work more than others. And I want fashion to be more transportive than that.

I also am not sure the one that’s flapping over her boobs is all that flattering. It might even be… droopening. The shoulder pieces, though, are nice? Sigh. Like with so many things, I guess, I have notes. What are yours?

Scrolldown Fug: Naomi Watts in Derek Lam


Sometimes I wonder if red-carpet dressing is ripped from a video game: You have a life meter, and sometimes, if you forget to recharge it, you run dangerously low for awhile. This might explain why, after that triumphant Oscars Armani that y’all named the best of the night, we petered out a little. This starts out nicely, and very Naomi…

… but then, if you will, it runs out of watts.

but the shoes y’all the shoes
