Naomi Watts, 85th Academy Awards, February 2013
It's the ultimate frock watching night of nights, but a number of the frocks this year were a bit lacking. Bit boring, bit blah, bit bridey. It was seriously lacking in the sensational and the shocking. Maybe we can blame Rusty's turn in the Les Miserable performance (he is, as a colleague pointed out the "Victoria Beckham of the Spice Girls", minimal singing time). Thank goodness then, for sequins. Naomi Watts and her bestie Nicole Kidman both brought the shimmer and it really worked for them. Naomi's gun metal grey Armani Prive number which she paired with Jimmy Choo shoes, a Roger Vivier bag and Neil Lane baubles was a feat of archictural design. Lover the cutouts, loved the hypnotic sheen of it all.
