Accessorizing with flair, the 55-year-old British actress accentuated her look with unique Harry Winston diamond earrings and a Harry Winston pirouette diamond ring, perfectly complementing her sparkling diamond engagement ring.
Watts completed the ensemble and carried a Tyler Ellis the Perry clutch, ensuring her essentials were elegantly tucked away.
The wealthy celeb’s blonde bob was styled in waves reminiscent of the 1920s, and she sported a chic black manicure that added a vintage charm to her look.
Meanwhile, her 55-year-old husband, Billy Crudup, looked dapper in a classic black suit, tie, and shiny dress shoes, perfectly contrasting Watts’ radiant silver gown.

In a pre-show chat with Variety’s Marc Malkin, the couple shared insights into their current projects, with Crudup discussing his Golden Globe nomination for his supporting role on The Morning Show.
When asked about their potential collaboration in a romantic comedy, the duo expressed enthusiasm, with Crudup humorously stating, “I’ve always been great at those.”
Naomi Watts and Billy Crudup’s Love Story
Naomi Watts and Billy Crudup first crossed paths in 2009 at a Broadway benefit event while she was in an 11-year relationship with Liev Schreiber, with whom she shares two children, Kai and Sasha.
Their professional collaboration on the Netflix series Gypsy eventually blossomed into a romantic relationship in 2017, a year after Watt’s split from Schreiber.
In the psychological thriller, Watts took on the role of a therapist employing an alias to cultivate intimate (albeit unethical) connections with individuals closely linked to her patients, with Crudup portraying her husband.
The couple’s journey to the Golden Globes red carpet was marked by their first public appearance at the Screen Actors Guild Awards in February 2022, where Crudup was nominated for The Morning Show.

Confirming their marriage in June 2023, Watts shared a heartwarming photo on Instagram, capturing the couple in front of a Manhattan courthouse, with the King Kong actress donning a white dress and clutching a bouquet.
The duo officially tied the knot two months following the buzz created by engagement speculations ignited by Watts, who showcased an impressive diamond with an elegant marquise cut and a diamond-encrusted band on her left ring finger during a Today show appearance.
