It is sometimes hard to believe that Emma Watson was once that little girl we were introduced to in the Harry Potter series of films. The self-assured elegant beauty we see today has all the hallmarks of a true Hollywood star. Intelligent, talented, and always guaranteed to look fabulous and fashion forward on any red carpet, Emma is one of the brightest British hopes in the movie world today, and, like Angelina Jolie before her, she is also happy to maintain her integrity by using her fame to speak out about issues she feels strongly about.
In terms of style, Emma favours classic looks but with a twist that keeps them young and fresh. Not all her looks are successful, I was never a fan of the modest red dress that turned out to be a trouser suit from the back. But most of her choices she has made have been exquisite, with an emphasis on classic black and deep navy, with the odd splash of red or a nude shade thrown in for good measure. She is a master of the understatement, rarely adding unnecessary adornments to looks that are already perfect, and she keeps the hair and make up simple and youthful. No wonder she is now making best dressed lists in both the UK and America.
This season you can channel Emma’s effortless evening looks with the new collection by Esprit. The cocktail and special occasion dresses by the High Street brand have more than a touch of Emma influence to them, with an emphasis on the neutral palette of black and navy, with other shades of blue adding a dash of interest. I have chosen some of my favourite Emma Watson looks from across the years, and have suggested a fabulous Esprit frock to help you get the look, but without having to delve into a huge designer closet or face enormous price tags.
