Oscar-nominated actress Naomi Watts is taking on a brand new role: model. She’s been tapped to be the face of Ann Taylor‘s fall campaign. Following in the footsteps of previous ad stars Milla Jovovich and Heidi Klum, Naomi posed for legendary fashion photographer Peter Lindbergh in the collection, which a release noted “was inspired by Ernest Hemingway’s A Moveable Feast and focuses on mixing European sophistication with timeless American style.” Fall 2010 marks the one-year anniversary of head designer Lisa Axelson—who’s done some amazing things for the brand—and the new collection includes plenty of chic staples, including little black dresses, statement jewels, leopard print, and luxe coats. Watts is certainly perfect for the part—in our opinion, the cool blonde epitomizes classic style, as you can see in this exclusive behind-the-scenes shot.
