The English actress was in New York City earlier week to attend the Guggenheim’s International Gala.

The event aims to raise funds for the museum’s world-famous exhibitions.

Many would argue that Watts’ outfit was a work of art in its own right.

The interesting design complimented the Mulholland Drive starlet’s petit frame.

She wore a bright colourful design on her chest which appeared to illustrate some cute little characters including a dinosaur and a man.

The dress was fluffy from the waist down and gave the mother-of-two a unique look on the carpet.

As well as appearing in the hugely successful Twin Peaks earlier this year, Watts has a number of other projects in the pipeline.

Her next film Ophelia is currently in post-production and is due to be released in the new year.

She’s also filming another movie called Luce, although details of this role have been kept under wraps so far.
