If there’s one thing we’ve learned from Emma Watson’s strong red carpet showings this season, it’s that she is essentially the antithesis of her Bling Ring character Nicki. The film’s New York premiere last night brought even more proof as the actress kept it crisp and chic with a shellacked low bun, crimson lips, LBD, and one very sleek pair of Christian Louboutins. It seems Watson is proving herself to be quite the master of minimalism.
If this is the case, she’s giving Sofia Coppola a run for her money. When the director is not wearing Marc Jacobs pajamas to the Met Gala, she’s taking the less-is-more approach with streamlined silhouettes and neutrals. We weren’t surprised to see her in a no-fuss, ivory Louis Vuitton frock, designed by her confidant MJ.
Two style stars that have emerged during the film’s press rounds are Watson’s costars Taissa Farmiga and Claire Julien. Both have a knack for choosing right designer dresses, with Farmiga opting for the classics, such as last night’s black Marchesa confection and Julien reaching for something sexier. It seems that the star has found her comfort zone within Emilio Pucci’s embellished, body-hugging designs.
See the rest of the red carpet looks below (look out for random appearances by Terry Richardson, Anna Sui, and Hanneli Mustaparta) and if you like what you see, switch coasts for The Bling Ring’s Hollywood premiere and watch Coppola talk about why she chose to direct the film.
this is some kind of spaceship or something.
