Naomi Watts takes in London Fashion Week amid controversy

With her name in the news, Naomi Watts stepped out at London Fashion Week on Saturday to take in the Burberry show at Dimco Buildings.

The English beauty, who’s recently been named as a point of contention in the brief marriage between Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux, sat in the front row for the swanky outing, alongside celebs such as Kate Moss, Nicholas Hoult, Kate Driver and Naomi Campbell.

Naturally, the 5ft5 actress, 49, went to the show in style, pairing a long black trench coat over a white patterned top with black slacks with a thick white vertical stripe running up the side.

The mother-of-two carried a black bag with a horizontal yellow buckle across the top, with her blonde locks parted on the side, gold hoop earrings and a necklace.

The Oscar-nominated performer found her name in the headlines this week amid the jaw-dropping split between the Friends star and The Leftovers actor after about a year-and-a-half of marriage.

Aniston was ‘upset’ of how close Theroux was with Watts, in particular a hug they shared at The Unveiling: Class by Taryn Toomey in January of 2017 at Tribeca Studio in New York City, according to National Enquirer UK.

The Ophelia actress and Theroux go back more than 17 years, as they’ve been pals since filming the David Lynch thriller Mulholland Drive.

Watts last summer credited her role in the film as the stepping stone to bigger and better projects – and a creative freedom few in Hollywood are able to enjoy.

‘Things came to me very quickly from that point I turned down giant paychecks, giant opportunities – my agents were flummoxed,’ she told The Guardian. ‘But I knew what I liked by then. I had a strong understanding of my taste.’

Amazingly, the stunning star in the interview revealed that up until that point, she was quick to second guess herself as she tried to navigate the tricky terrain of Tinseltown.

‘Looking back, I know why people weren’t hiring me,’ she said. ‘I went into auditions thinking, “What version of me do they want? How should I shape myself in order to win them over?”

‘I wasn’t getting parts. I was giving myself away. My soul was being destroyed. I was never able to walk in a room and own it by being me.’
