Naomi Watts goes big in Cannes

Naomi Watts “really goes for it” with her Cannes style.

The actress has been in France to attend the annual film festival, wearing gowns by the likes of Giorgio Armani Privé and Marchesa. For the 45-year-old, the movie event is the perfect excuse to go all-out with her looks.

“Cannes is all about the glamour. You can really go for it – trains, big jewels,” she gushed to Style.com.

“You can bring that old Hollywood feel and take advantage of the amazing light in Cannes. It’s all in a feeling.”

On Friday, Naomi hit the red carpet in a stunning Givenchy gown with intricate jewel detail at the bust and waist. Despite loving the glitz of the occasion, the blonde star also appreciates dressing down when relaxing during Cannes.

“[My] day [look] will include a hat to avoid the sun. And something lightweight – maybe a sundress and sandals,” she shared.

Naomi has been in a relationship with actor Liev Schreiber since 2005 and they have sons Alexander and Samuel together. Even when she’s busy dressing up for the red carpet, the star has her family on her mind.

“Taking a swim in the sea, enjoying amazing French food – cheeses and baguettes – and a visit to Monoprix to shop for my kids,” she answered when asked what she does during her spare time in France. “They have the best-quality kids clothing, and it’s well-priced.”

Naomi jetted back to California on Sunday and was spotted at LAX airport looking casual in wide-legged jeans, a white top and a black blazer.
