Last night Emma Watson hit the red carpet for the LA premiere of Bling Ring, in a shimmery tweed slate Chanel mini with a large open collar, a zip down the front and a thin black waist belt. She paired her classic tweed with a matching Chanel box clutch and Guiseppe Zanotti ankle strap heels. Emma has been crushing on classic Chanel recently - could this be Sofia Coppola's influence?
Just like at the Bling Ring premiere in Cannes, Em spiced up the classic Chanel with edgy silver ear cuffs. Someone was clearly inspired by the cuffed-up stars at the Met Ball. Beauty wise she twisted her hair into an elaborate plaited updo and wore lashings of red lipstick. Ten points for Gryffindor.
Emma Watson enrolled in the Chanel crew some time ago, and is one of Karl's favourite child stars. He even bought her a fishing rod for her 18th birthday (yes, really). Karl also once shot Emma Watson as a nun for French fashion magazine Crash. Anyone else think she has earned herself a campaign by now?
Gwen Stefani wore a white halter criss cross crop top with high waisted leather slouchy trousers which were cinched in with a statement gold belt. She topped off the look with gold serpent detail heels and bright red lips. While Paris Hilton was classic Paris Hilton in a pepto-bismol draped dress with sparkles on her wrist.
On the other end of the style spectrum the director of the flick Sofia Coppola was tres Parisian in black ankle-grazing trews, a white shirt, simple black heels and a patterned jacket fastened with a black ribbon at the neck. Claire Julien wore an embellished, panelled Balmain dress, with a high collar and sleeves which she paired with gold Christian Louboutins. It's the definition of opulent.
As for the fashion on screen, Sofia told WWD recently that big brands such as Chanel and Louis Vuitton got on board, despite the theme being not exactly, er, on-brand for the luxury labels. As Sofia said, ‘I think it’s not the ideal way they want to be portrayed. Louis Vuitton is this brand based on heritage and great craftsmanship, and that wasn’t the side that we were celebrating.'
