Venice vs. TIFF fashion showdown, Naomi Watts edition

Venice vs. TIFF fashion showdown, Naomi Watts edition
Naomi Watts seems to have a thing for evening gowns in nude and blush, so the bateau-necked lace Marchesa dress she wore at the Venice Film Festival premiere of The Reluctant Fundamentalist in late August was well within her comfort zone (though quite ornate, considering she wasn’t actually in the film—she attended as hubbie Liev Shrieber’s plus-one). However, the actress did opt for colour earlier this week with a lavender-hued gown from Elie Saab—who has been a favourite of the stars at this year’s festival—for the TIFF premiere of The Impossible. We love the pleated detailing at the waist, and we give the actress kudos for her stamina—we can’t imagine it was comfortable to spend a full night in a dress that form-fitting (or that low-cut).
