Yea, Nay, Or Eh? Neutral Times Two


If there’s any doubt that fashion is in the grip of a neutral moment, last night’s Public Theater Gala should put it to rest. Attendees sported a wide range of options, but two starlets who rarely shy away from red-carpet glamour, Naomi Watts (far left) and Amanda Peet, were among the evening’s most understated. Each showed up in a muted look—almost, we’d have to say, the same muted look. The loose white blouses, cropped wide-leg trousers, and strappy sandals were city-street casual—in deference, perhaps, to the alfresco Shakespeare in the Park performance. It’s slightly less than gala-ready, but we think these two exemplify casual done right. What do you think? Do you expect more from Watts and Peet, or are you feeling the casual chic?

    Smiling to myself now knowing that Amanda Peet and Naomi Watts are doing the “Casual Chic” thing that looks a lot like what I wear everyday. They wore this out in public on a red carpet, Really? That is not understated it is un-stated, perhaps intentionally so.

    I would say that Naomi Watts pulled off this neutral look in a more chic way. She looks slightly more refined than Peet. Either way I love a neutral look, it is perfect for summer!

    Undercover! Clearly both were looking for a casual night in the park to enjoy without paparazzi to ruin it. Naomi Watts is the winner lights out!
