In addition to an endless supply of red-carpet fashion (you can follow our daily updates here), we’ve seen our fair share of must-try beauty moves in Cannes—including Naomi Watts’ look at last night’s Calvin Klein Euphoria party. While the celeb is no stranger to the current trends, we can always count on her to keep things simple and chic. Last night’s head-to-toe look—a blush pink tea-length Calvin Klein Collection dress paired with a black blazer, dewy skin, and swept-back ponytail—was one of our favorites of the week. We caught up with Watts and her stylist of choice, Jeanann Williams, for an exclusive glimpse into their red-carpet routine.
Why did you choose this particular dress?
JW: The dress was something Francisco [Costa] dreamt up for Naomi. We worked closely with Calvin Klein on the design process, starting from a sketch. We loved the color on Naomi—so fresh. And the silhouette had that glam factor so perfect for Cannes but with a modern take, which we always know we can get from Calvin. At the last fitting, we decided to make it tea length.
How did you decide on the hair and makeup look?
JW: We wanted to keep it fresh-faced and modern. We had fun with the hair for this look.
Did you get in any spa treatments in preparation for tonight?
JW: Facials are always a good way to start, if time allows. You want that glow.
What was the must-have beauty product you packed for the Calvin Klein party?
NW: Burberry lipstick in English Rose.
What makes Cannes different from other red-carpet events?
NW: Cannes is all about the glamour. You can really go for it—trains, big jewels. You can bring that old Hollywood feel and take advantage of the amazing light in Cannes. It’s all in a feeling.
How will your daytime looks for Cannes differ from evening events?
NW: Day will include a hat to avoid the sun. And something lightweight—maybe a sundress and sandals.
JW: Yesterday she wore a lightweight white suit by none other than Calvin Klein. So chic, yet easy. Isabel Marant separates always make it into the mix as well.
How did you and Naomi relax post-red carpet?
JW: Naomi was craving French bread and cheese, so we ordered dinner the moment we hit the car. It was ready upon our arrival at Hotel du Cap.
When you’re not working and attending films, what is your favorite thing to do, see, buy, or eat in Cannes?
NW: Taking a swim in the sea, enjoying amazing French food—cheeses and baguettes—and a visit to Monoprix to shop for my kids. They have the best-quality kids clothing, and it’s well-priced.
Here, a few behind-the-scenes snaps from the dynamic duo:
Full disclosure: I’ve never stuck to a juice cleanse. I find the need to chew—not chug—my nutrients essential. However, when I heard about Juice Generation‘s newly launched Daily Nutrition for Skin shot, I was intrigued. Developed with Dr. David Colbert (the go-to derm for perfect-skin celebs like Naomi Watts, Charlize Theron, and Michelle Williams), this one-ounce bottle taken once a day packs a serious punch for your complexion. A blend of green tea, gotu kola, guarana seed, bitter orange, peppermint, raw agave nectar, and angelica sinensis (commonly known as female ginseng), Colbert’s concoction rapidly delivers collagen building blocks and boosts the skin’s innate metabolism. As long as I can still have my solids, I’ll go bottoms up in hopes of a more flawless face.
Naomi Is Just Saying “No” to Botox (For Now); The Future Is Bleak When It Comes To Beauty; And More…-------
“Never say never” is how Naomi Watts describes her stance on the ever-looming “will I or won’t I” dilemma many Hollywood actresses face when it comes to Botox. For now, though, Watts is content to age gracefully. “My job requires me to have expression,” she says. “It’s about playing women with rich lives—and the longer the life, the deeper the wrinkles.” [Daily Mail]
According to a new study conducted across the United States by Allure magazine, women are thought to have reached their peak at 30, start showing signs of aging at 41, stop looking “sexy” at 53, and are considered “old” at 55. A depressing sentiment, to be sure. [Telegraph]
Death by Axe Body Spray? Apparently, it’s possible. [Huff Po]
Just in case you’ve been counting down the hours for Net-A-Porter’s beauty section to launch, the wait came to an end today when the high-end e-commerce destination made selections from Aesop, Ilia, Sarah Chapman, and Natura Bisse available alongside its coveted clothing collection. [Net-A-Porter]
Despite a preference for faux bobs and pinned-up lengths on the red carpet, Naomi Watts has long claimed that the short-hair lifestyle is not for her. “I loved wearing a wig to play Princess Diana,” the British actress recently said of the blonde crop she sported while shooting Diana, the upcoming biopic about the late Princess of Wales. “But I’m not brave enough to go that short.” It looks like she’s mustered up the courage to go nearly that short, though. This morning at Louis Vuitton, Watts was spotted with a brand-new chin-grazing chop that was about the same length as the texturized wigs Guido Palau sent down Marc Jacobs’ Vuitton runway. Nothing like a show season full of inspiring short styles to provide the extra push needed to make haste to the salon. Thoughts on her new cut?
The Oscars are still two and a half weeks away, but the best-actress race is already heating up. At last night’s Hollywood Reporter Nominees Night bash in Beverly Hills, celebrating the men and women whose names will be read aloud on February 24, best-actress hopefuls Naomi Watts and Jennifer Lawrence were wearing a near-identical shade of sheer raspberry lipstick, opting for glossy translucence over the more red-carpet-friendly matte mouth. Watts paired her lightweight lip with groomed brows and mascara, while Lawrence opted for a subtle gray smoky eye, bumping up the glam factor for the casual cocktail party. We’re not going to allege that this mere makeup move insinuates that she wants it more, but…we are going to let the evidence speak for itself. Who do you think wore it better?
