Emma Watson has come a long way since her Harry Potter days, Goodwill Ambassador, Oxford and Brown Graduate, and Chanel muse. It just seems that everything the star touches turns to gold, with a magic touch that she might have inherited from Hermione herself. And nowhere is that Midas touch more prevalent than on the red carpet. On the red carpet, Emma turns to Dior and Chanel but also funks it up with cool fashion labels like Christopher Kane. Her personal style is chic and polished, echoing old-school Hollywood glamor, but she has fun adding unexpected detailing like ear cuffs, or studded shoes. If you have a dress-up occasion, channel Emma Watson’s style with quirky details, ankle-skimming trousers, and a crisp white shirt.
On first look, Emma looks like nothing but a lady on the red-carpet. Totally polished in statement monochrome floor-length gowns and chic, smooth chignons. However, look a little bit closer and you can see unexpected details that serve to remind us all that, deep down, Emma is only 26-years-old and, boy, is she having fun. Think black nail-polish, ear cuffs, rocker earrings, chokers, and knuckle-duster rings – all quirky little details serving to rein her style in from being too formal, and too old before her time.
Somewhere there must be a celebrity rule written which dictates that the red carpet calls for dresses because they’ve been become something of a uniform for celebrities. However, Emma didn’t get the memo or she just decided to rip the rule book up but she is frequently seen on the red carpet in trousers. Emma’s statement trousers are black, slim leg and always grazing the ankle so that she can show-off some statement heels. Emma frequently pairs her statement pants with white blouses and shirts, which gives a nod to her favorite monochrome look. For your next formal occasion, why not make like Emma and opt for trousers?
White Shirt Wonder
First came Sharon Stone, then came Emma Watson. Both massive endorsers of a crisp white shirt paired with a full-length skirt. The vibe should be masculine, and yet, it’s wonderfully feminine because of the low neckline and beautiful on-point accessorizing. The trick is to keep it feminine, with floor length skirts and killer heels which take the look from boardroom to ballroom. The key to nailing this look is to opt for a crisp white shirt and a plain colored skirt, it should be understated and classy and easily vamped up with accessories. If you really want to add a ‘wow’ factor, make like Emma and add a red lipstick. With a white shirt, you can make like Emma with floor-sweeping gowns, or channel Sharon Stone with knee-length skirts – one rule, though, is to never opt for a white shirt and anything above the knee, or else run the risk of looking like a school-girl.
