Emma Watson made an unusual public appearance for a good cause on Sunday. The 31-year-old British actress was one of five celebrity presenters for the winners of the prestigious Earthshot Prize Awards, which celebrate those whose work has contributed to combat climate change, at Alexandra Palace in London, England.
Watson dazzled in a Harris Reed FOUND. collection custom up-cycled demi-couture gown. With a lace neckline, open back, and poofed-out body, it was created from 10 up-cycled wedding dresses from Oxfam. She completed the ensemble with a pair of black Harris Reed flared trousers.
Emma Watson made her first red carpet appearance since promoting her film Little Women in late 2019.
She accessorised her look with elegant gold rings and black clunky boots. Her ‘bronde’ bob was slicked to the side, and she flaunted a dangling gold and pearl earring.
Emma chose a natural make-up look with a smoky eye to bring out her inherent beauty. Her gorgeous outfit was finished off with a floral lace accent that framed her bare back and added a feminine touch.
Emma Watson was seen conversing with musician Ed Sheeran and shaking hands with hosts Kate Middleton and Prince William at the event. Emma Thompson, Watson’s Harry Potter co-star, was also in attendance, though it’s unknown if the two had a reunion while waiting for their presenting duties. Thompson, on the other hand, was caught enthusiastically conversing with the Duchess of Cambridge backstage.
Emma has used her position to promote sustainable fashion and environmental living since her rise to stardom as part of the J.K Rowling franchise.
In 2011, she collaborated with Italian designer Alberta Ferretti to develop Pure Threads, a green capsule collection. She also started an Instagram account called the Press Tour in 2017 to showcase her environmentally friendly clothing and inspire her fans to do the same.
In 2010, she told Vogue, “I will work for anyone for free if they’re prepared to make their clothing fair trade and organic.”
Last year, she joined the board of directors of Kering, a luxury brand conglomerate, as an advocate for sustainable fashion, and she donated her name to a line of apparel for ethical brand People Tree.
