Naomi Watts in Chanel at the Spirit Awards: fabulous flapper or falls flat?

I’m sorry for the dumb alliterative title but I couldn’t help myself! It’s Sunday and we have the Oscars tonight, let me have this. Naomi Watts was in a pink floral watercolor print Chanel gown with black straps and asymmetric ruffles. For part of the Spirits red carpet she had a black jacket draped over it. This looks cute without the jacket and has a flapper vibe. I like how it moved on camera but it’s not photographing as well. The white and black shoes are all wrong and are throwing this off.

Margaret Qualley was also in Chanel, in a fussy ombre chiffon dress with tiny buttons and a jeweled chain belt. I don’t like the folded over waistline but the rest of the dress is interesting. She was quite good in OUATIH.

Joey King looked both fashion-forward and elegant in a Oscar de la Renta draped pink and light orange gown with a pink suit jacket. This is so unique and pretty, I’m really impressed. Her shoes are perfect too. Her sister, Hunter King, was in a Chalayan gown. I haven’t seen that kind of confetti detailing before and I love it.

Hunter Schafer, 21, is in Euphoria. She was in a Loewe dress with Malone Souliers shoes. There are so many layers of ruffles that it looks costumey, especially with her styling. Maybe the top half would work with a sleek skirt or pants.

Look how cute she is when she smiles though.

    Naomi, that’s a total fail! She’s great on screen but I never like her fashion. Those black straps… ugh.

    Hunter is a biological woman?! Let me say, she has done a beautiful job playing a young trans woman on euphoria. I don’t try to “figure out” the gender of people in general, but she did such a beautiful job in that role I just assumed she was a trans woman in real life.

    • Celebitchy says:

      Oh I didn’t know! I’ll research that and make sure I’m gendering Hunter correctly. My apologies. Update: I am gendering her right and she is a transgender woman who uses she/her pronouns.

      • Shirleygailgal says:

        I have a question which may sound very insensitive and I’m so sorry but it’s a real question: Once a person has transitioned, are they still trans-gender or are they fully gendered? This is such a perfect example, as she identifies as a woman, we Identified her as a woman, so is it appropriate, calling her trans? I wouldn’t have known she was ‘once a man, now a woman’ but do now because someone pointed it out …. will she still be considered a trans-woman when she’s been a woman for however many years? Is there ever a time when she is no longer trans, but is simply ‘a woman’? And/or vice versa…when is a trans-man simply ‘a man’. Eg: is Chaz Bono a man yet, or still a trans-man? Hunter identifies as she and her so are we discourteous by calling her trans? So, when she’s 30, 40, 60, is she still trans or is she simply a woman? And does it depend on whether they self-identify as trans, or once they pick their pronouns, do we identify as per the chosen pronoun? Thank you

      • lemonylips says:

        @Shirleygailgal as a person who has friends who have transitioned I just wanted to say that this is a personal decision coming from those who are transitioning. At one point they would let everyone know what is that they have decided and how they want to be adressed. It’s a rather sensitive and as I said personal issue although most people do want to use pronouns fit to the state their are trasitioning to.

    • lemonylips says:

      She is a transgender woman and uses she or they pronouns. And is absolutely stunning and really talented.

    • AnnaKist says:

      To me, Naomi just looks daggy.

  2. SJR says:

    In the pic with 2 women, is the one on the right in white, doesn’t she play Summer on the Young & the Restless?
    Naomis dress is awful. I don’t know any of these other people.

    • Doublesteff says:

      @SJR: yes she plays Summer. I am so glad you asked this question. I have been trying to think of where I knew those faces from as I don’t recall seeing Joey in anything lately (I’m terribly behind on my movie watching). Now I know Joey has a very similar face to her sister and that’s what I was looking for!

  3. SM says:

    Rita Wilson’s hair and make up person for the globes was late, Naomi’s hair person did not show at all it seems. And all the dresses here are meh

  4. Gabby says:

    These looks are all terrible, I’ll be glad to see the end of these excessively ruffled dresses with seemingly random “details”, ugh! And the draped blazers add nothing.

  5. Laura says:

    Big fat no to all of these tragic outfits!

  6. FHMom says:

    So much fug.

  7. Cassandra says:

    Joey King is definitely one to watch fashion wise. She’s worn some great outfits this award season.

  8. Sass says:

    Yikes NO NAOMI NO

    Joey’s look is the closest we’ve come to successful but JFC enough with the blazers, they’re too much. They’re not working. That’s a gorgeous dress and you can’t even see it because of that dumbfck blazer.

  9. HufflepuffLizLemon says:

    Hunter King’s dress makes me think of a Birds of Prey themed outfit. There is a sweater I really want that has sleeves that are inspired by Harley’s costume but made for real-life and I want it to wear to the movie!

  10. VS says:

    I love Naomu’s dress (I want that dress; great for a party or low key type events) but those shoes are hideousl; some of Chanel shoes have been hideous especially the past few seasons; I still remember the PVC Chanel boots; they were hideous but my sister loved them………A Resort collection can only be worn at this type of events

  11. TheMummy says:

    It falls flat. Also, other than in the most vague way with maybe the top of Naomi’s dress, there is absolutely nothing remotely resembling flapper style.

  12. A Fan says:

    Naomi is a big NO – terrible dress/boots and really terrible hair. Seriously, how can a person have all that money and access to hairdressers, etc and come out with that hair? Even just a side part would make a huge difference (never mind a darker colour and deep conditioner).

    [*What is the resistance to a side part???*]

  13. BeanieBean says:

    When I was Margaret’s age, I would have loved to have worn such a pretty floaty dress. It would have felt so good on. I also think the tops of both hers and Hunter’s outfits would look really nice with a good pair of jeans and black ballet flats or black heels. But I’m simple.

  14. carb says:

    Naomi’s dress sans jacket is pretty. I’d like to see Joey’s dress without the jacket. Margaret’s dress is awful.
    Hunter Shafer looks she borrowed a dress from Little House on the Prairie & her hair needs a trim & some style.

  15. kerwood says:

    Was there some sort of ‘wear your ugliest outfit’ dress code for this year? Because this is TRAGIC!

  16. Naddie says:

    How can anyone say Joey’s dress is ugly? Its mesmerizing.

    • Bella says:

      I agree 1000% Beautiful dress ugly, but ugly, ugly shoes. They need to be burned!
      I love Joey’s dress and I don’t love prints!
