Naomi Watts stuns in a black floor-length gown as she leads arrivals at Harpers Bazaar Awards

She's known for her stylish looks and Tuesday evening was no exception, as Naomi Watts donned a gorgeous floor-length black gown for the Harper's Bazaar Women Of The Year Awards.

The ensemble was comprised of caped sleeves and also featured a plunging neckline. Naomi wore her blonde locks in a loose, straightened style and kept her accessories minimal, opting for a bracelet and a few rings.

Harper's Bazaar celebrated women in fashion, art, literature, music, film, and philanthropy at the awards, which were held at Claridge's Hotel.

Also joining Naomi at the event were stars including Olivia Colman, Gerri Horner, Kim Cattrall and Vick Hope.

Olivia looked gorgeous in a black gown paired with a chic brown coat while Vick opted for a body con dress with a racy thigh split.

Meanwhile, Gerri put on a stylish display in a strapless gown with embroidered flowers on it, which also had a see-through skirt.

Legendary Sex and the City star Kim Cattrall put on a leggy display in a black shift dress with large puffed sleeves. And Emilia Clarke looked sensational in a 1920s gown with bronze tassels which she paired with a cream blazer and nude heels.

England and Arsenal footballer Alessia Russo, who scored a goal for the Lionesses during the semi-finals of the World Cup this year, won the sportsperson gong.

She said: “I’m just a football player but this, I guess, comes with the job now. But it’s amazing, for women’s football, to see how far it’s grown and where the game is today and how we’re pushing it forward.”

She added: “If we’re inspiring the next generation we’re doing the right thing.”

Barbie actress and filmmaker Emerald Fennell won the director award for her films, which include Promising Young Woman and Saltburn – set for release later in the month.

Speaking at the event, she said: “I mean there’s nothing in the world that I love more than women. It’s just a real pleasure to be in a room with so many people I admire and it’s just such an honour and a thrill.”

Elsewhere, singer-songwriter Janelle Monae received the musician award having released album The Age Of Pleasure this year.

Serbian artist Marina Abramovic, whose work is currently being exhibited at the Royal Academy Of Arts, took home the artist award in recognition of her decades-long career.

Meanwhile, bestselling author Maggie O’Farrell received the writer award for her contribution to literature, having written the book Hamnet, released in 2020, which has been adapted for stage and is now being made into a film.

The recipient of the philanthropist gong was actress Gugu Mbatha-Raw for her humanitarian work as a goodwill ambassador for UNHCR, the UN refugee agency.

Meanwhile Patsy Stevenson, who was arrested whilst taking part in the Sarah Everard vigil in 2021, received the campaigner award for advocating for women’s rights.

Other winners included Tory Burch, who was given the designer award and actress Camille Cottin, who took home the editor’s choice award.
