Emma Watson's Red Carpet Style
Emma Watson first hit the scene at just 11 years old. And the English actress—who's currently starring in Darren Aronofsky's much-buzzed-about epic Noah—has been asked "Who are you wearing?" on the red carpet ever since. Needless to say, her response has yet to disappoint. Even though her first gig was as a student at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in the Harry Potter series, we find her off-screen style to be just as magical.
Watson's looks are as timeless as they are on trend. No matter where Watson is headed—like the Burberry Prorsum show in London where she wore a gold sparkling number by Burberry designer (and friend) Christopher Bailey—her style is always on point. What we love about the star's sartorial choices is that they are never predictable. From her red lace and bow-bedecked Valentino frock to her ultra-modern J. Mendel off-the-shoulder dress, the actress' choices range from glamour girl to sophisticated and sexy. Our number-one favorite look (so far)? An all-black Dior Haute Couture look that cleverly consisted of a cocktail dress worn over chic cigarette pants. Now that's what we call magic.
In Ralph Lauren Collection, 2014
Watson attended the Duke of Cambridge's Royal Marsden dinner at Windsor Castle in England wearing an elegant Ralph Lauren Collection ensemble paired with a Roger Vivier Boite de Nuit clutch.

Watson, at the Madrid premiere of Regression, opted for a design featuring a black cut-out trim top and tweed printed skirt, complete with a gold cuff and black ankle-strap pumps.

She wore a Balenciaga top and pants when she was honored at BAFTA's Britannia Awards.
In Dior, 2015
The actress attended the designer's fall 2014 Haute Couture collection in Paris in head-to-toe Dior: a black clutch, white pumps, and a dark navy dress.
In Misha Nonoo, 2014
To pick up her British Style Icon Award at the 2014 British Fashion Awards, Watson wore a white, wide-legged jumpsuit from Misha Nonoo.
In Givenchy, 2014
Watson attended a gala during Couture Fashion Week in Paris wearing a black Givenchy suit cinched with a patent leather belt.
In J. Mendel, 2013
"Emma is the definition of elegance in this J. Mendel off-the-shoulder dress," says Gilles Mendel. The silk sheath fit her 5-foot-6 frame perfectly without any alterations, he adds.
In Peter Pilotto, 2013
In a Peter Pilotto dress and strappy Tabitha Simmons shoes at the People's Choice Awards.
In Valentino, 2012
She chose a feminine lace and silk bow dress that she paired with pointy-toe Christian Louboutins at the BAFTAs.

At a Perks of Being a Wallflower fete, the actress chose a bloom-embroidered Erdem design.
In Calvin Klein, 2012
"In this updated little black dress, she looks youthful and modern," says Calvin Klein's Francisco Costa. Black heels (her go-to shoe color), also by the label, complement the minimalist vibe.
In Miu Miu, 2012
Tough? Sweet? Why not both? She demonstrates how in a leather blazer and multi-print skirt and top (all by Miu Miu). "Getting dressed up always lifts my mood," she has said.
In Jason Wu Top and Sandro Skirt, 2011
The star chooses accessories that keep a look "clean and simple." She lives that mantra in a silk Jason Wu peplum top and bow belt teamed with a Sandro skirt and leopard Charlotte Olympia clutch.
In Balmain, 2011
"My pixie has made me braver with my style," she told us. Plus, the cut makes it so much easier to show off the bold one-shoulder design of this beaded Balmain number as well as her gleaming Jennifer Meyer pavé diamond earrings.
