Every time we cover Emma Watson, the reception is a pretty even split: half of readers think she’s flawless, untouchable and remarkably stylish, the other half seem completely infuriated that the term “style icon” could ever been lobbed at this kid. Personally, I’m always in favor of young stars who don’t get photographed falling out of nightclubs looking like complete wrecks in sausage-casing dresses, so I’m just going to continue appreciating her from that angle.
Anyway, Watson attended the premiere of the final Harry Potter installment wearing this Bottega Veneta gown, which features a linen bodice and an amber skirt with unfinished hems throughout. Though the dress may not be to everyone’s tastes (nor should it be) this is the kind of move that makes gawking at red carpets a lot more interesting. Her makeup is a little out there, her hair is a little harsh, but that dress is a showstopper.
Tell us what you think!
Here it is on Isabeli Fontana on the runway, for comparison’s sake.
