Actress Naomi Watts has shrugged off the box office failure of her Diana, Princess Of Wales biopic, insisting she knew "there were problems" with the film.

The Impossible star played the tragic British royal in Diana, which failed to pull in audiences on both sides of the Atlantic following its release last year (13), making less than $65,000 (£43,600) in the U.S. in its opening weekend.

She tells Australia's Harper's Bazaar magazine, "I got seduced by the fantastic character. ...

It's Fashion Fail Time! That means we take a break from letting you know how good all of your favorite stars look to show the other side of fashion: the fails!

Keri Hilson wore this tight dress to the About Last Night premiere, and we don't love the contrast of magenta and olive green. The patterns are also tacky, almost rug-like.

Amal Fashanu wore this dress, which has quite a bit going on: there's the brick wall giving way to nature, see-through sleeves, and a furry lump. The dress would be quite beautiful without those last two additions, especially the attached bulge of black fur....
