Naomi Watts in navy Balenciaga at the SAGs: plain or pretty?

21st Annual SAG Awards
Naomi Watts was at the SAGs last night for both Birdman and St. Vincent, for which she was nominated for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role. That SAG of course went to Patricia Arquette, who is winning everything this season. Naomi didn’t seem to mind. I remember watching her get choked up at the Globes at Arquette’s heartfelt speech. (She wasn’t nominated at the Globes though.) Plus Naomi had a huge consolation prize, Birdman won the Best Ensemble Award. I was surprised, I expected Boyhood to win that category but it seems like Birdman is a contender and has a real fighting chance at the Oscars.

While she was going up to the mic to accept the award, Naomi tripped over Emma Stone’s weird sheer train. You can see a gif of that here and it’s about :30 into the video below. As for Naomi’s navy Balenciaga gown, it’s a little plain for my taste but it does fit her like a glove. It looks more like a gown for a holiday ball as it’s very tasteful and staid. She’s accessorized with Bvlgari jewels, which are fabulous.

Naomi’s costar Andrea Riseborough was in this goofy mint green Escada gown featuring a silver knot ribbon along the neckline ending in a sort of double bow. I’m not fond of the color or the fit of this gown although it’s interesting. Riseborough is such a chameleon. She looks so different with and without makeup.

Amy Ryan’s loose bright pink gown looks very comfortable, if not the most fashion-forward. In photos I don’t like it at all but on screen it looked ok. It’s a kind of tank top over a long skirt. Update: Amy is wearing Honor.

Here’s the Birdman cast accepting their award. Zach Galifianakis quipped “When I was on As The World Turns…” which was a reference to Julianne Moore’s speech. He looks like a different person he’s lost so much weight.

    Naomi Watts has the best, most real face.

    Naomi and Liev all class. Beautiful and handsome, Sexy couple.

    • Kosmos says:

      Oh, definitely !! I love them both !! She’s got to be one of my favorite actresses, and so nice, too :- )) Her dress color works well for her coloring; however, I just don’t love that sequin or whatever it is, band around the top of the dress. It’s too thin or something, but it doesn’t work. Even a wider sheer ribbon would have looked better.

  3. HoneyBea says:

    Every dress in this post is fugly!

    • Esmom says:

      Yeah, I’m not a fan of any of them. There’s really no need for Amy Smart to look so frumpy. Also I love Naomi but I thought her hair looked kinda dated. It’s too bottom-heavy or something.

      • Renee says:

        I loved the color on Naomi but I agree about her hair…well, I agree in that it was off but for me it was the shade, it’s too blond on top, too yellow. But I do like the style. Regarding her dress, I don’t understand the top??? It looks like one of those garlands that is placed on a Christmas tree…but the rest of the dress fits her beautifully.

      • Bridget says:

        That’s Amy Ryan, not Amy Smart.

    • lunchcoma says:

      Yup, that’s what I was coming here to say. Naomi’s looks like it was trimmed with leftover Christmas tinsel, and the other dresses have unfortunate and unflattering cuts.

    • kitty-bye says:

      Agree and the 1st looks like a sea urchin top.

  4. Lucy2 says:

    I would like Naomi’s if it didn’t have that weird thing around the shoulders.
    That Andrea woman needs better makeup!
    I love Amy Ryan, I didn’t know she was in the film. Don’t care for her dress but glad to see her there.

    • minime says:

      Yes, I think she looks really good as usual but that weird Christmas thing around the shoulders should not have been there.

    • Lilacflowers says:

      Amy Ryan was great in Birdman. She was the only sane character in the movie.

  5. Elizabeth says:

    I love Naomi but this dress was very boring. She knew she was going to lose to Patricia so she should have had tried to wow us on the red carpet. I like her better in something colorful – maybe red or bright blue.

    I feel bad that she tripped but that seems to happen every year at this show. Remember Jennifer Lawrence?

  6. Anny says:

    I hate every single one of those dresses. The pink one is the worst. No.
    The top part of Naomi’s dress looks like someone just decided to put a little Christmas on top of a very boring dress. At least it is a nice fit.

  7. scout says:

    Naomi looks elegant and beautiful color and her arm candy is great too.

  8. hadlyB says:

    Another couple with odd, uncomfortable body language.

  9. Jayna says:

    Naomi was perfection.

    Amy Ryan, no. But I still feel the best supporting actress Oscar award should have gone to her for Gone Baby Gone. Brilliant performance, simply brilliant.

  10. Sass back says:

    Naomi’s dress is the first one I have liked so far in all these SAG posts. To be honest, I usually look at 99% of these dresses and dislike them. If they make the person look good, it’s good but usually everything is over designed and the dress wears *them*. Naomi’s makes her look good and it’s simple but still sexy. Best look so far.

    • GingerCrunch says:

      +1. And most anything in navy gets my vote!

    • Jayna says:

      I love Navy, and I love the classic look of the gown on her. Her hair and make-up are flawless. I think she looks fantastic.

      I agree with your point about ill-fitting or gowns wearing them. I love this gown on her. I don’t find it boring at all on her.

  11. LeAnn Stinks says:

    I heart Naomi Watts. : )

  12. poppy says:

    black and navy poorly executed. seriously, that junk around her shoulders -NO.
    the minty dress would have been great if it wasn’t floor length. or just a differently cut skirt altogether.
    the pink stuff is just cut all wrong for her size.

    what is it with these designers that don’t scale down or adjust the pattern for the person wearing the dress when it will be seen MORE on the carpet than the runway?!?!!??
    hackish, piss poor business sense, just lazy and careless.
