Wow! hasn’t Emma Watson blossomed into a fine young lady? here she is wearing a beautiful Draped Velvet one shoulder cocktail dress by revived French Label Vionnet. She’s also sporting her new look which we think is sensational, and with the luxurious Velvet fabric making a lavish comeback she is Uber trendy too.
To me and most likely the rest of us, it doesn’t seem such a long time ago that Emma appeared in the very first Harry Potter film as Hermione Granger at the tender age of nine. But with several blockbusters behind her that any actor would be proud of, she has the world at her feet at the tender age of only 20.
However with Emma’s notoriety, she has lately become the target of not only the paperazzi but of the fashion press too, and is regarded as somewhat of a fashionista with her celebrity endorsement of the ethical fashion brand People Tree. Regularly papped at various Red Carpet events around the globe, her fans and the fans of fashion alike are eager to discover what creations she will be wearing.
By the evidence of the image above no the wonder she so popular as she looks just sensational as she’s seen here premièring her new look at the swanky Claridge’s hotel, an event to celebrate Warner Brothers acquisition of Leavesden Studios who make the Harry Potter film franchise. Her pixie style hair which we thinks suits her so well, and her fair skin contrasting with Deep red lipstick, she looks all women and not the kid we’ve become accustomed to seeing in the movies.
The dress itself is a stunning velvet and satin one shoulder cocktail dress by Vionnet the French haute-couture brand. Originally Established by Madeleine Vionnet in Paris back in 1912, The brand which had recently lost its way, has been giving a whole new impetus with its acquisition In 2008 by Italian entrepreneurs Matteo Marzotto and Gianni Castiglioni. They have vowed to re-create the Vionnet heritage brand whilst building a modern fashion house with the elegance and sophistication of the original Vionnet brand at its heart. Other than Emma Watson, the brand has some very famous celebrity clients such as Cameron Diaz, Carey Mulligan and Catherine Zeta-Jones to name a few.
