Emma Watson always looks sophisticated for red carpet events, but her outfits are never loud. However, they’re polished and well-crafted (she even chose a rewearable Met Gala ensemble made from plastic bottles). Emma inspires us to shop for staples — pieces we’ll come back to for their versatility — and she just impressed us yet again.
Emma’s stylist, Sarah Slutsky, shared a behind-the-scenes photo featuring the star in a jacquard J. Mendel dress. While its powder-blue shade was lovely and the shoulder detail striking, we had eyes on Emma’s Walter Steiger oxfords. The patent leather makes them just fancy enough for a special occasion, but their flat soles keep things functional.
Emma didn’t appear too casual. She was just maintaining her signature style. Read on for another glimpse, then shop the need-now shoes that just soared to the top of our must-have list.
