Emma Watson

Emma Watson has grown up in the limelight and become a role model for countless young girls - thanks to her now iconic role as Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter franchise.

Emma Watson - Goodwill Ambassador for the UN

Emma has certainly taken the responsibility in her fashionable stride. In July 2014, she became a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations, and focused her spotlight on bringing attention to gender equality. In addition to all of her accomplishments, she has quickly become an undeniable fashion icon in her own right.

The press tour for the final two Harry Potter movies was a key turning point in Emma’s fashion journey. After filming wrapped up, she had her hair chopped into a cool pixie crop - a move she described as “the most liberating thing”. In one bold stroke, she shed her teenage persona and began to transform into a beautiful young woman.

For each of the major premieres for the final films, Emma chose achingly beautiful (and very grown up) gowns by Oscar de la Renta and Bottega Veneta to let everybody know she was leaving Hermione Granger behind.

Emma’s personal style is polished and feminine, but she always adds an edge to her look, whether channeling her uniqueness through unusual jewellery, statement sartorial choices or simply an eye-catching pair of shoes.

At the 2014 Golden Globes, she subverted expectations, choosing to wear an entirely backless dress, layered over skinny fit trousers. A welcome departure from the classic evening gowns that repeatedly grace the red carpet.

Emma has been causing a fashion buzz this season whilst promoting her latest movie - Beauty and the Beast -, using the press tour to highlight an issue very close to her heart; sustainable fashion. Emma has been promoting her ethical outfits through her new instagram account, documenting the tour.

Emma Watson in Louis Vuitton

Some of our favourite looks have included a cobalt blue, asymmetrical dress by Louis Vuitton that was custom-made out of 100 percent recycled polyester, paired with eco leather boots.

We swooned over her shirt and trousers combination from Oscar de la Renta. She wore the same trousers for multiple looks across the tour, using the hashtag #30wears on instagram. She topped off the look with jewellery by Article 22, which crafts its pieces in Laos out of shrapnel from The Vietnam War.

While promoting the movie in Hollywood, Emma donned a sleek Roland Mouret jumpsuit. She noted that Mouret was a producer on the film Ten Billion, which spotlights the impact of the planet's growing population on natural resources.

Emma Watson in Emilia Wickstead

At the London premiere, Emma wowed in a custom Emilia Wickstead gown. She spoke eloquently about her reasons for choosing the gown on instagram: "Bespoke [Emilia Wickstead] structural, off-the-shoulder gown with inverted pleat train. The gown is made from end-of-line fabric sourced from a family-run, London business specialising in couture fabrics, and produced in Italy. These unwanted fabric pieces have been given a new lease of life; often irregular quantities of surplus or end-of-line fabrics cannot be sold and are destroyed. This piece was created in Emilia Wickstead's London atelier, by an all-female team.
