In our weekly round-up of what we’re seeing sizzle (and fizzle) on the red carpet, we noticed that peplums are rising in popularity once again, stars are having a serious love affair with leather — and there’s one hairstyle that appears to be losing its edge lately. Consider this your fashion forecast.

Naomi Watts's Stylist Shares 5 Fashion Rules to Live By

Jun/06/2013 at 06:00 PM ET

Since having a personal stylist is something many of us covet, but almost nobody can afford, we got the woman responsible for dressing many red carpet regulars to spill her secrets to always looking good.

Celebrity stylist Jeanann Williams gives PEOPLE the scoop on how she keeps clients like Naomi Watts on the fashion straight and narrow.

1. Do a Yelp search for a great tailor — right now! We don’t all have Gisele’s body (sigh). And since most clothes are made to fit a tall frame, Williams says you should find a good tailor — and actually use him! “You have to customize each look to make it work for your measurements and height,” she explains. “When dressing clients for the red carpet I always look at the runway image. If my client is 5’5″ (like Naomi), I know I’ll need to take the hem up 4 inches.” Skipping the tailor will leave clothes looking schlumpy, no matter how much you spent on them.

2. Always avoid this pairing. “If a skirt hits below the knee, do not wear a heel with an ankle strap,” Williams says definitively. “It chops off the leg. Instead elongate with a pump.” Watts heeds her stylist’s advice: She sticks to a classic pump with the Burberry Prorsum leather skirt and embellished top she wore to the Up2Us Gala this week.

Naomi Watts: Blondes Look a 'Little Bit Porno' When They Wear Red

Mar/19/2013 at 03:00 PM ET

We didn’t think there was a single thing Naomi Watts couldn’t wear, but the Academy Award-nominated actress, 44, informs us that there’s just one shade she won’t sport.

“I won’t wear red on the red carpet … I just never think blondes look good in red.” Watts told PEOPLE Wednesday at The Hollywood Reporter and Jimmy Choo’s 25 Most Powerful Stylists luncheon in West Hollywood. “I think it’s good for dark haired girls and dark skinned girls. But for some reason, I always feel like I look trashy in it.”

So trashy, in fact, that she believes “blondes plus red, to me, looks a little bit porno, and I’ve never felt quite right.”

How to explain that “near red moment” in Zac Posen, then?

“Because it had a busy print, it had different colors,” she says. “It wasn’t fire engine red. At the [Golden] Globes I wore burgundy or plum. That wasn’t red. If you put blue in it, I can wear it, but orange does not look good with my skin.”

Tell us: What do you think of Watts’s take on blondes in red? Are there colors you can’t pull off?

We’ve been talking about Naomi Watts nonstop for the past few months, thanks to her stunning red carpet style. But now we’re talking about the actress for another reason: her gorgeous new haircut.

Watts debuted a loose, wavy bob in Paris on Wednesday, immediately earning a spot on editors’ Hair Inspiration Pinterest boards. The cut is definitely departure from the long layers she’s sported for ages, but we we’re loving the soft new look on her.

The (Real) Biggest Winners of Awards Season: J. Law and Naomi Watts

Feb/26/2013 at 04:30 PM ET

Move over, Lincoln. You may have cleaned up at all the awards shows this year, but when it comes to style, there are two obvious champions and their names are Jennifer Lawrence and Naomi Watts. The Best Actress Oscar winner and the Best Actress Oscar nominee tirelessly traveled from red carpet to red carpet over the past few months, making phenomenal style choices at nearly every stop. So it should come as no surprise that they ended up on our Best of the Best Dressed list not once, but a whopping three times each.

Watts first popped up on the list thanks to her stunning Alexander McQueen halter, which she selected for the People’s Choice Awards. (We weren’t the only ones to fall in love with it: model Chrissy Teigen surprised everyone by wearing the same gown to the Oscars after-parties.)

Oscars 2013: The Editors Pick Their Favorite Fashion Moments

Feb/26/2013 at 03:30 PM ET

As soon as we’d pulled together the Best Dressed list, each style editor at PEOPLE.com immediately used this tool to make her own personal top five list and share it on Facebook. (If you haven’t made yours yet, what are you waiting for?!)

As it turns out, we each gave the coveted number-one spot on our lists to a star because we were won over by one very specific part of her look. Below, we call out that one special thing that caught our eye and prompted us to give the complete look our style seal of approval.


Style Director Andrea Lavinthal: Brandi Glanville’s Neckline: I picked this one before the red carpet even officially started. The Real Housewife, who arrived so early I suspect she slept outside the venue the night before, stunned (no, really, I was stunnedin a plunging gown that she designed herself. Okay, okay, I’m kidding (though I couldn’t resist another opportunity to talk about the craziness that is her gown). My real vote goes to Charlize Theron, specifically the shade of her Dior Haute Couture creation. It’s proof that white doesn’t always have to look bridal-y.

Another Awards Season Fashion Faceoff: Naomi Watts vs. Chrissy Teigen

Typically, once a high-fashion gown gets worn to a big awards show, it’s considered off the market (as in, no other celeb will pick it for another red carpet event). Especially when the star in question is a big-name, Oscar-nominated actress.

But that didn’t stop Chrissy Teigen from breaking out the same gold-and-black Alexander McQueen number Naomi Watts had worn back in January to the People’s Choice Awards. And we’ve gotta say: We can’t really fault the model. The gown is such a stunner that we’re almost glad it got a second moment in the spotlight. And if we had the chance to wear it, we wouldn’t dream of saying no. (After all, this is a design we deemed so amazing, we included it in our best of the best gallery featuring the top red carpet looks of the entire awards season.)
