She’s a Brown University graduate with a degree in English literature, a UN ambassador, a long-term advocate of sustainable fashion, starring in one of this year’s most highly anticipated movie releases and all round female boss! Emma Watson is a force to be reckoned with.
With International Women’s day having just passed we thought it only right to pay homage to one of our favourite fierce fashion icons. Keep scrolling to check out our favourite red carpet looks from the Beauty and the Beast premiers so far.
Taking a break from the classic princess dress, Emma slipped into a chic Oscar De La Renta jumpsuit plucked straight from the Autumn/Winter catwalk. The look was ever so slightly customised by moving the gold rose to the hip, giving that dramatic neckline even more glamour. The rose is the perfect choice, so in keeping with the movies iconic flower.
Emma proved to be the ‘Belle’ of the ball at the London premier. This bespoke Emilia Wickstead dress had the perfect amount of glamour. What’s more, the gown was made completely from end-of-the-line fabric which was sourced from a family-run London business that specialise in couture fabrics.
The Elie Saab couture gown chosen for the Shanghi premier is a personal favourite. The gown is perfectly beaded and jewelled with a matching cape that trails behind leaving Emma looking like she has truly stepped straight out of a fairy tale. The Saab creation is made completely out of leftover fabric from a previous Haute Couture collection.
We are seriously girl-crushing on these incredible pre-loved looks and cannot wait to see what other eco-friendly couture she brings to the red carpet. Emma, we salute you!
