There is nothing more ladylike than a white lace dress, and Naomi Watts showed up to the Armani Prive fall 2015 fashion show in the most sweet and sophisticated lace dress ever.
Watts attended the show, part of Paris’ Haute Couture Fashion Week, in what The Daily Mail reports was a custom Armani lace dress, which featured a halter neckline with dainty straps and intricate white lace. She paired her look with simple nude ankle-strap pumps, while keeping her jewelry minimal with merely a gold bangle on her right arm and a few simple rings.
Watts’ gorgeous lace dress is (unfortunately) a custom dress, which means that it is not only unavailable for purchase, but also that it is essentially priceless. But, if you love this look, it’s not impossible to recreate it for yourself! We found three similar options that can give you that custom Armani lace look without breaking the bank.
The first thing we noticed about Watts’ Armani frock is its beautiful lace, so we immediately wanted to find a dress to imitate the look. The Keepsake One Night Ivory Lace Midi Dress from Lulu’s not only gives us a similar luxurious look with its elaborate lace, it also has a halter neckline that is reminiscent of the neckline on Watts’ custom dress. This lace frock is the perfect way to replicate Watt’s look, available for $156 at Lulus.com.
The neckline of Watt’s Armani dress is also very unique, making it difficult to find a dress that provides a similar look. However, we found a copycat dress from Tobi.com that fits the bill: the Maison dress. This dress perfectly mimics the neckline of Watts’ dress, giving a modified halter that opens in the back to a simple spaghetti strap style, while also delivering a ladylike lace in an A-line silhouette. The Maison dress is available at Tobi.com for only $68 — a steal for a dress that could pass for Watts’ custom Armani look.
If you are looking for a way to replicate Watt’s lacy look in a more casual, daytime way, try the Trixxi Lace High-Neck Skater Dress from Nordstrom. This cute frock still gives us the same modified halter neckline as Watts’ dress, but it gives us lace in a more casual, almost crochet-like way which makes it a little less dressy and more daytime garden party-appropriate. The Lace High-Neck Skater dress by Trixxi is available at Nordstrom.com for only $44.
Naomi Watts’ lace Armani dress may be custom, but there are ways to get her look for less. Just pick up one of these lacy ladylike frocks, pair it with a nude pump and you’ll have recreated Watts’ look without the help of a personal tailor or designer — who needs custom, anyway?!
