Looking good while doing good! In continued support for Save the Children, Bulgari has launched a new pendant as part of its collection benefitting the charity. On board with the philanthropic movement are stars Jon Hamm, Naomi Watts, Jeremy Renner, Lizzy Caplan, Meg Ryan, Ben Stiller, and Ricky Martin, who posed in a series of dramatic shots for the campaign.
Renner, 43—father to 13-month-old Ava Berlin—may have a soft spot for the partnership, which focuses on providing quality education and, beginning this year, supporting life-saving interventions for under-privileged children and newborns in 23 countries across four continents.
Stiller, 48, has long been a supporter of the charity, making trips to Uganda and Haiti with the organization in the past. “There’s no way you can’t be affected by the place,” Stiller has said of his service trip to Haiti. “Going to the central plateau, where living conditions are so hard and basic services are as scarce as in the most undeveloped parts of Africa, was profoundly moving.”
To date, Bulgari has donated over $27 million to Save the Children through sales of its silver and ceramic ring, with a goal of donating an additional $1 million through sales of the newly launched pendant. The two pieces are inspired by the B.zero1 jewelry line and are available for purchase in Bulgari stores worldwide, select department stores and on the Bulgari website.
Naomi is on the cover of the Labour Day (August 30th) issue of US regional magazine Hamptons. It comes with a beautiful new photoshoot and an conversational interview with Naomi’s good friend and We Don’t Live Here Anymore co-star Laura Dern. It’s a good read, and I particularly liked reading them talk about St Vincent and their hobbies. Scans and the photoshoot are both in the Gallery for you. You can read the interview through the scans or at the official Hamptons website.

Hello Naomi fans! Sorry for the shortage of updates here recently – real life has become busy, and as wonderful as Naomi is, she’s had to take a back seat for a while. This may continue for a while, but be sure I will update as often as I can.
I have now caught up with adding photos from all the events Naomi has attended in the past couple of months. Read through this post for a rundown of those appearances…
Naomi and Liev looked cool and casual at a benefit event for Stuart House, a program to support sexually abused children:
Naomi mingled with fellow Aussie actress Abbie Cornish and a variety of stylists at THR’s Stylists Luncheon. Naomi’s stylist, Jeanann Williams, dressed her in a blue and white floral print dress by Erdem, with nude Jimmy Choo ‘Anouk’ pumps and a nude Valentino ‘Rockstud’ clutch. Read more about the Stylists issue here.
Naomi, Matt Dillon and director Laurie Collyer premiered their new movie Sunlight Jr. at the Tribeca Film Festival. Naomi wore a patterned Alexander McQueen dress with Monique Péan earrings. More on this premiere and movie coming soon!
Naomi made the Children’s Museum of Art Spring Benefit a family affair, taking her kids, sister-in-law and niece to the event in New York City! See the cute family photos below!
Diana was screened privately at the recent Cannes Film Festival to attract buyers, and Naomi was in town to help promote the movie. She attended a gala event hosted by Swiss watch company IWC Schaffhausen, and looked so beautiful in a black floral tea-length dress by Dolce & Gabbana, with earrings from Aurélie Bidermann. I love this look on her! More on Diana coming soon.
Naomi sported a Burberry top and skirt with Proenza Schouler heels for last weeks Up2U’s Inaugural Gala in New York City. Naomi posed with Sienna Miller on the red carpet. Up2Us is an organisation aiming to tackle the problems facing youth today through an increased involvement in sport. Read more about them in the event press release further down this post, and on their official website.

Naomi supports a campaign from the Happy Hearts Fund in this new PSA:
Happy Hearts Fund is a non-profit foundation dedicated to rebuilding schools and restoring hope and opportunity in the lives of children after natural disasters. We work during the period after emergency response is complete, implementing sustainable practices to ensure a lasting impact.
A few weeks ago I posted an article about Naomi thanking Vivek Oberoi for his work with families affected by the 2004 tsunami, and he has now responded to Naomi’s letter as such:
Vivek Oberoi thanks Hollywood actress Naomi Watts for her praise and appreciation for him and also talks about her film “The Impossible” which will release in India on January 4, 2013.
Vivek Oberoi, I salute you: Naomi Watts
Hollywood actress Naomi Watts is “touched” by Bollywood actor Vivek Oberoi’s work for the rehabilitation of the tsunami-hit families in Tamil Nadu. She has even written a letter to him, appreciating his work.
In 2004, Vivek had adopted a Tamil Nadu village named Thevanapattinam, and worked towards rehabililating the affected families.
“Words really fail to express how touched I am to see the work you have done for the rehabilitation of the tsunami-hit families in Thevanapattinam, Tamil Nadu. It takes a lot of courage and immense devotion to be able to take up such a responsibility on one’s shoulders,” Watts wrote in the letter.
The actress, who plays the role of tsunami survivor in “The Impossible”, says it is hard for her to imagine the pain that the families had gone through during the 2004 calamity.
Naomi jetted back to Australia this week to promote Pantene’s Beautiful Lengths campaign again. She appeared on numerous Aussie talk shows, and within this post you will find videos of them.
Our press page has also been updated with a couple of new interviews from this week. The gallery will be updated with screencaptures plus a few photos from these interviews soon too.
Oscar nominee Naomi Watts is back in Australia promoting National Donate Your Hair Week.
Naomi Watts: I’m definitely wearing a wig in Diana film
WHAT do wigs and Naomi Watts have in common?
Quite a lot, actually.
In Australia for Pantene’s Beautiful Lengths campaign, which encourages women to donate their hair to be made into wigs for cancer sufferers, the actress also spilled the beans on her Princess of Wales hairdo in the highly anticipated film Diana.
“I’m definitely wearing a wig” she told news.com.au yesterday
“I actually had four different wigs, and even though the film only covers the last two years of her life she did change her colour quite a bit and even the length and style.
“Real hair wigs are very expensive, it takes a lot to get all the under work right and then you have to set the hair in such a way so that your head is as small as possible.”
Real hair wigs actually cost thousands of dollars and are very difficult to come by, which is why Naomi agreed to sign on for the Beautiful Lengths campaign.
“It just instantly sounded like such a good thing to be part of” she said.
