In case you haven’t noticed by now, celebrity pics aren’t posted lightly around these parts. Not because certain actresses aren’t killin’ it sartorially on the regular, but because red carpet looks just aren’t as forward-thinking as their runway and editorial counterparts. So I gotta give extra props to hot mamas like Cate Blanchett, Lupita Nyong’O, and Emma Watson (pictured here) who continue to inspire us with their stunning red carpet ensembles and daring party looks. Sure, most of them are still relatively safe, especially compared to garments by the likes of Phoebe English, Jacquemus, and Marques’Almeida. But being able to discretely push the envelope, in spite of the super-conversative and judgmental internet firing squad (not to mention Joan Rivers), is still worthy of tremendous respect.
Resplendent in white at the London premier of Noah, Emma Watson dials up the jawdrop factor by keeping her accessories minimal. Can’t get over her silver double cuffs and the sexiness of the Ralph Lauren Collection slit. Watson (or her stylist) has proven time and time again that she’s the master of self-editing when it comes to accessorizing, and also not looking like a dullsville prom queen on the red carpet.
