I do not know the designer of this garment. If you do please comment down below.
At the 2013 Golden Globes, Naomi Watts perfectly pulled off the shade in a dramatic Zac Posen gown. With a keyhole detail in the front, an open back and a dramatic train, the gown showcased the luxe potential of Marsala.
The Russian fashion plate always turns heads, but this particular outfit is especially great. The color and asymmetrical hem on the trench makes it something special, while her gold belt helps to define her waist and gives her a nice shape.
I had to save this beauty for last! The gorgeous Naomi Campbell, walking down the run way in New York’s Fashion week. A metallic ball gown designed by Zac Posen, I am falling love more and more every time I look at this dress.
