      That little bit of skin peeking through in the middle is really distracting. That bit with the sash in the middle gives it all a bathrobe feel. It’s a gorgeous color, though, and I think the whole look succeeds just barely. The shoes are far too clunky, though.

      • RocknRollmom

        Exactly what I thought!  Bathrobe!  And had the same  view as to color.  She looks lovely but everything else is just wrong.

      • Louise Bryan

        The jewelry is really stunning.  The dress looks like she is using safety pins to hold a bathrobe closed.

      • Claudia

        Yep, definitely saw bathrobe.

    • OrigamiRose

      Gorgeous and flawless.

    • Depot'er

      I actually thought it was a ‘pants suit’… it me? looks like she could wear it around the house after a long bath….

    • foodycatAlicia

      I just wish, if she had to pin it, she’d done it more invisibly. But great colour. I think this sort of 70s thing suits her almost as well as 30s.

      • Kiltdntiltd

         Right?  I realize its got a neckline down to THERE, but there are more effective ways to deal with that.  Plus it knocks all the shape of the bodice off rather badly.

        • MilaXX

           She needs one of those deep plunge bras. I don’t mind the 70’s realness of the look, it’s the execution that fails.

          • Kiltdntiltd

            Or just a pair of those adhesive cups.  My other quibble is that those earrings are lost in her long hair.

            • Sarah

              Me too, I saw the pic of the earrings and had to go back to see if I could see them ON her. I love the jewelry, but the neckline of the dress should have been basted right at the seam, just at the edges, and then it would have set better on her torso. And maybe I hate the way it is hitting her shoes? I don’t know if shorter would be better, but lined on the bottom…hmm.

            • Kiltdntiltd

              Honestly, overall I think it does nothing for her besides being a lovely shade of blue for her. The fit and style look like a shapeless sack on her body. The only picture that is at all appealing is the side shot.  For such a lovely woman, this is a tragic misfire.

            • foodycatAlicia

               Glad she didn’t wear it open all the way down though! She’s very slim but I am not sure she has the chutzpah to carry that off.

    • MissAmynae

      Hate the shoes, but I don’t care. She looks fantastic. 

    • AuntJentie

      Kind of shapeless, but I love the color on her, and really love the earrings and bangle.

    • Cassie

      Wow, what a scrolldown – “pretty, pretty, ohmigod THE SHOES WHAT.” Awful. 

      She’s gorgeous, though, and that’s a great color on her.

    • StellaZafella

      Sorry, but, from where I sit, it doesn’t look like a dress for step and repeat…
      It looks more like a really nice coverup, for poolside.

    • Eovaai

      Love this. It suits her down to the ground.

    • BuckeyeLou

      It looks like her boobs/bra? are showing thru the fabric, its distracting. And altho the color is great on her, its shapeless and not flattering. And the shoes are heavy looking. But, I love the accessories, bracelet&earrings.

      • SugarSnap108

         It does look like she/her bra are showing through in at least one shot.  Also, there’s the weird gap where she apparently pinned the neckline.  Agree with everything you said — esp. that it’s a beautiful color on her.

      • MoHub

         I see nips!

    • kimmeister

      Love the jewelry!  The slate blue is great on her, the sloppy shape, not so much. Ugly shoes.

    • Bert Keeter

      Did she pin that neckline closed? If so she’s an idiot!

    • MilaXX

      she needs a bra, all I see are nips.

      • MoHub

         You beat me to it! My eye went straight to the little love bumps.

    • schadenfreudelicious

      great color, but smacks of highend bathrobe to me…shoes are horrific….

    • Pennymac

      Naomi, you’ve got your bathrobe on inside out…..

    • Trisha26

      Hair & makeup are lovely, but this looks like an after-pool/after-spa wrap – like at a resort. 

    • Jennifer Peters-Ahnberg

      The color is fantastic on her, but the bathrobe vibe is pretty strong here and not helped by the peek a boo pin job. The shoes are hiddy.

    • Annabelle Archer

      Is she holding an old bath robe closed with a safety pin?  What’s happening here?

    • rloliveira

      Gorgeous color. Weird shape to the dress. So the wrong shoes.

    •!/Space_Kitty Space Kitty

      She looks fantastic in the last shot, but the front view is tragic.  I know she’s a tiny slip of a thing, but she’s absolutely swimming in this dress.  Can we get a fitting up in here?

      • littlemac8

        I agree, Space Kitty.  She looks fabulous in the last shot and the draping is flattering.  Unfortunately none of that is true when you look at her from any other angle.  Her hair and makeup are becoming too!  And that color, swoon.  TLo should love a color!

    • Sara Hottman


    • trisker

      I’m with most of us kittens: Bathrobe and ugly shoes.  Love the jewelry (you can hardly see).

    • Victoria Weinstein

      The close-up is fabulous and I love the earrings on her. I love them, period. And I’m the only person here who loves the shoes – they’re awesome, but not with the full-length 1950’s gym suit qua bathrobe. Great color on her, though, and she looks beautiful. 

      • OrigamiRose

        Oh I’ll fight ya for those shoes ;)

    • jw_ny

      shapeless sack on a shapeless woman…nice color tho.  bad shoe choice.

    • nannypoo

      Beautiful color.

    • quiltrx

      Awful shoes, great bracelet…and the dress looks like she should be standing on a ledge in the early 80s trying to decide whether or not to jump.

    • l_c_ann

      That Vanity Fair Bathrobe your Mother bought for you every decade in the late 1900s, well, it’s back and it’s grown.  Badly.

    • marlie

      Not doing it for me. The dress looks like a bedsheet wrapped around her, and that little tiny gap in the front is annoying the hell out of me for some reason. Plus, I hate the shoes (Jeez, I’m a crankypants today). Though her hair and makeup look good!

    • Frank Lithium

      Ooo… shiny nipples. She looks pretty amazing here though.

    • barbarienne

      The dress is just…hanging there. It’s a lovely color, it’s flowy, and it looks as if gravity might affect it more than the rest of the world.

      I know not all women are curvy, but the dress has lots of folds and volume, yet none of it is filled out. It’s a beautiful sack.

    • Jackie4g

      Beautiful color for her swimsuit cover up, isn’t it?

    • librarygrrl64

      The shape of the dress is not the most flattering for her, but the color is stunning. Hair and makeup seem fine. The jewelry is so not my taste, but I kinda dig it. The shoes are an abomination.

    • BrooklynBomber

      It doesn’t really look like a “gown.” Looks more casual. But I kind of like it. Great color.

    • RzYoung

      Someone’s just jabbed a safety pin in there to it’s not slashed to the waist and I think it ruins the neck line, just choose a dress that isn’t slashed to the waist instead!

    • Vera

      She looks like she’s playing dress up.

    • Tanya Wade

      I am not suprised that a show named after Florida is so ugly. And I can say that because I’m a native.
      Love the jewelry, even though it doesn’t go with the rest of the outfit.

    • E. D.

      Hate the shoes.

    • decormaven

      The jewelry is to die for. The dress just seems a wee bit wah wah. Not nearly dramatic enough to meet the intrigue of the adornments.

    • Claudia Fernandes

      Love it

    • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

      Jewelry and shoes rock the block. But that bed sheet is supposed to be a dress? Please. I may be old and overweight but I’m not stupid.

    • filmcricket

      Ms Watts, please go out and buy multiple things in this colour. One caveat: make sure they fit. Also, thank you for whatever you’re doing/not doing to your face. You look gorgeous from the neck up. 

    • Sarah Caponigro

      Shiny bathrobe.

    • Mary229

      I don’t love the outfit but I do love the color.  More than anything, I’m just struck by how I almost forgot how pretty Naomi Watts is.  And now I remember.  Lovely woman.

    • Julie Chase

      It’s a weird dress, but she looks so pretty. Great color on her. Great color in general.

    • annrr

      I dig those earrings but the dress is an Out.  The color is pretty, especially on her. But the dress has too many issues, she is totally nipping out, it looks like she pinned it and just looks flimsy.

    • Kristy Evans

      NO. Looks like a cheap robe. Her hair looks AMAZE, though. 

    • Ass Kicking Adviser

      Very distracted by the fit of the dress. And I don’t like the shoes with the dress. Too ‘almost matchy.’ But the color is great on her. She is going to have to step it up if she is going to get nominated for an Oscar tomorrow.

    • guest2visits

      This is a great color for her and Naomi looks beautiful; but I dislike the design of the dress. It’s like a sleeveless bathrobe.
      I love the shoes; kind of 40s glamour.

    • ojosazules

      This looks like something they would put on you before having some kind of procedure done.

    • Pamela

      Want.  Earrings.

    • Qitkat

      Note to the Fanning sisters, THIS is how you do pale and blonde. Her hair, makeup and skin are stunning. 
      That’s a fabulous color on her and I would fight any kitten for the awesome bracelet and earrings. 
      The dress itself, and the vertical shoes, Aaaaarrrrgghh.

    • amanda lynn

      She’s aging beautifully.

    • Imasewsure

      I can’t decide how I feel about the dress since the fabric looks so stiff in some of these pictures but she looks beautiful and the color is amazing on her

    • ccm800

      love this robe dress on her.
