Outfit Inspiration: Naomi Watt’s Calvin Klein at Cannes

The Cannes Film Festival is known for red carpet gowns and the glamour of the film industry, but in addition to all of the photo calls, movie premieres and press events, there are plenty of cocktail parties and events where a gown might not be the right choice. Naomi Watts attended the Calvin Klein Celebrates Women in Film event showing just how a blend of red carpet glam and more casual dressing can make a big impact and set a look apart from the usual siren gowns and floor-sweeping dresses at Cannes.

Just like a girl after a date, Watts added a menswear-inspired blazer over her Calvin Klein Collection tea-length dress. It’s a wholesome, approachable look that we just love. The mix of menswear and cocktail attire is a great way to stand out, but the fabrication of the dress and Watt’s all-black accessories really stole the show. The finishing touch? Chopard diamonds. We’ve got great picks to show you how to get Naomi’s sweet, sleek look from top to bottom.

Naomi Watts’ pink dress might have simple lines, but what sets it apart from other red carpet gowns is the subtle texture. Calvin Klein Collection’s Francisco Costa is known for fabric manipulation — think origami pleating one season and neoprene the next — but for something a little more wearable, try the Tadashi Shoji Sequin Illusion Lace Dress ($328). The dress’ lace overlay gives it a great textural addition and it’s one dress you can wear to every summer wedding, graduation and bridal or baby shower you’re invited to. It’s a sweet, sleek dress that’s the perfect backdrop to accessories, so feel free to wear it again and again, because you can get a slew of different looks by adding (and taking away) different shoes, bags and more.

Available at Nordstrom.

1. There’s something sexy about a girl wearing a suit jacket over a dress (blame it on James Bond) try out the DKNY One Button Blazer with Leather Lapels ($277.20) for an anything-but-basic black jacket.

2. Make a statement with the Charlotte Olympia Handcuff Clutch ($1,295). Add a dash of danger and edge with Charlotte Dellal’s take on after-dark accessorizing.

3. We might not have Chopard jewels at our beck and call, but get the look of big-time bling with the Rebecca Minkoff Sliced Diamonds Long Pendant Necklace ($98).

4. There’s a reason that the Stuart Weitzman Nudist Sandal ($398) is a re carpet regular. It’s sexy, simple, and lets the rest of your outfit take the spotlight. If you splurge on one shoe this season, snag this Stuart.
