The fabric is gorgeous and fits her like a dream. She looks beautiful!
Lovely dress. Not wild about the hair. Thorax looks a little naked.
Do something with your hair!
Nice dress and pretty jewelry, but they don’t go with each other and that hair is so wrong.
The hair (don’t get me started on those roots!) is far too lackluster for such a beautiful gown & jewelry.
Surprisingly very close to a WERQ for me. I’m not sure why I don’t mind the hair, but the lip color is not good with that dress.
Beautiful dress, beautiful color but I don’t like it on her at all. With the (non)styling she has chosen, it would look perfect as a short dress… for a gown, you gotta step it up!!
Naomi needs to hike up her bodice if possible, although I suspect it’s not going to stay.
Pretty dress. Sad hair.
That first pic is hella unflattering, I almost couldn’t take in the look as a whole. Once I got passed that I fell in love. That is a great shade of red for her. I’ll let the limp hair slide.
I think this might be a personal best for Naomi. I love the color and the cut of the dress. And it seems to actually fit properly. Great looking textile and just enough bling to keep it all interesting. I love the casual hair and think her make-up is great. This is a WERQ for me.
Hair. Stylist. Is it so hard to do that?
Pretty bracelet, not so pretty dress.
It’s fine, but underwhelming. It’s sitting a tad too low for my taste, but otherwise, the dress is lovely. It would have been nice if she’d put in some effort with the hair and makeup, though.
This dress is not as simple as first glance would have it seem…nice to see that ZP didn’t rely solely on the patterned fabric to make the look sing. On Naomi, It’s pretty and somehow still lady-like, if a bit “dressed down”. On several others I can think of, it would be total Va-Va-Voom…either way – it’s a lovely dress.
Long straight hair is pretty only when it’s thick and well-maintained. Hers is neither. The dress sits too low, but that seems to be true of so many strapless dresses that I think it’s the fault of the dress and if she hoists it up it will just sag down again.
Are we sure this is Zac Posen? I feel like it’s missing some completely unnecessary and focus-pulling element, like a giant hip rosette with it’s own train.
The dress is okay – standard issue RC wear. But that bracelet is To. Die!
Oh, and the reason the dress is sitting low? It doesn’t have a waist stay, which would secure the bodice at the waist and keep her from having to haul it up every 10 minutes.
I think this is a pretty hideous color on her. Also, in general. Nice make-up and hair though.
Are the Visual Effects Society Awards really fancy enough to merit this dress? I honestly have no idea but I would have thought they were a little less formal. It is a great dress though. Love the bracelet.
There is something about this that I like. I think she is a good actress and obviously she is pretty though I always found her rather non-descript. It’s not a great fit but it is one of the only times I have seen her in a bold color – she should do that more often. And the hair, well, maybe it’s that I like her better when she isn’t trying too hard.
this is a werq for me.
I love the shape of the dress, but there’s something about it that’s bugging me that I can’t put my finger on. It’s either the print, or the material itself – something. But I love her hair and makeup, the jewelry’s just right, and the dress fits her perfectly.
Yes, it makes me uneasy and I can’t explain it. What is this dress, velvet, a print? It’s just ‘off’ when it should be ‘in’ because she looks good.
Is the material kind of cheap looking to you? That might be it.
You know the other thing that came to mind – the PR Season 10 Lexus challenge, when Raul and Alicia picked out that ugly black and red print for Mila’s gown. And it was pointed out (correctly), that a print like that is very “daywear”, that it doesn’t really work for a gown for a red carpet event. I think that’s what it’s reminding me of, and it’s at least one of the things that’s bothering me about it.
Love the dress but it is riding too low. I’ve seen that a lot lately with these strapless gowns. And I am completely sick of the stick straight hair with the center part. Stop it!
AGREE about the hair…. especially when the part reveals ugly dark roots!! COME ON
That hair belongs at the beach, not with this dress.
Bleh, seems like an homage to Wu’s inaugural gown. Regardless of it’s that the case, this is entirely unoriginal and still don’t understand the appeal of this texture (and the texture of Obama’s gown).
Wtf with that hair?
I’m shocked to see a Zac Posen design look so bland. Not sure if she’s at fault but she gets to the Va but doesn’t make it to Voom. Wrong red, wrong style, wrong hair – she doesn’t have the curves to pull this off. A curvy figure would help. But the bracelet – what a show stopper!
She looks OK (covet that bracelet!), but WHAT THE EFF is up with the masking tape on the floor? Seriously? You have an Oscar nominee show up at the height of awards season in a formal gown and the best you can do to mark the spot is MASKING TAPE? To quote a song from “Chicago”, whatever happened to class?
For some reason Naomi looks an awful lot like a blonde version of Liz Hurley to me in these photos. Except the skirt is too long for Liz..
Although the dress fits her beautifully – I have a feeling the red is a prettier fabric than the way it appears on screen; then again it
could just be the back drop and carpet that is making it look less expensive. (Visual Effects Soc. should have re-thought that wall).
Dress is quite nice, but the bodice doesn’t flatter her upper breast and underarm area at all – strapless dresses actually look really good on many fewer women than wear them, and it’s not just about having a pretty figure, as Naomi undoubtedly does.
What struck me was that her eyes look tired. Then I realized that lots of photos lately show tired-looking women, and it’s obviously the eye makeup. Something that is presumably intended to be smoky eye light translates to dingy and tired eye. We commented on it with Heidi and Emmy recently (among others) and here it is on Naomi. Brown and gray makeup shades and too much along the lower eye rim = tired eyes (and often smaller-looking eyes, too).
it is hard to tell if this is beautiful or not because of the darn carpet, backdrop and other crap going on.
The jewellery is DIVINE. I can’t stop looking at it.
SO pretty. But is that not one of the most distracting/badly colored backgrounds ever?
She looks radiant, and the dress is very flattering.
Meh. Not her best.
