Naomi Watts Marchesa Venice - P 2012

The actress continues on her amazing fest run, showing off great gowns accompanying her man to Venice.

Naomi Watts was absolutely one of the best dressed women at Cannes this year. Wearing a specially made jazz-age, pale pink Gucci frock to the Vanity Fair-Gucci dinner at the Hotel du Cap, the actress out-flash-bulbed everybody else.

Watts doesn't even have a film at Venice -- she arrived to the premiere of the opening night ceremonies on the arm of Liev Schreiber, who stars in The Reluctant Fundamentalist -- in an amazing Marchesa dress from resort 2012-2013.

The caramel colored frothy gown has an interesting combination of elements -- a high "bateau" neck (or boat neck, which goes straight across the neck and doesn't dip), ruffle sleeves, a lace overlay (big trend), and a deep low back. Plus, the red lips really make it pop.

She also chose some striking Chopard jewelry to compliment the vintage-inspired lace frock: Brown and cognac diamond chandelier earrings set in rose gold and a yellow and white diamond bracelet, also set in rose and white gold.

A lot of leading ladies tend to dress down when supporting their actor partners (Angelina Jolie, for instance), but Watts did not do the shrinking violet thing. Now that's fashion confidence.
