Typically, the jewellery you see on the red carpet is so eye-wateringly expensive that Hollywood celebrities borrow them for a strict number of hours, and it comes with security to stand on guard. Last night, Emma Watson attended her first red carpet event in two years, the Earthshot Prize ceremony in London, and she wore jewellery from Missoma that we can actually buy. Watson has long been a champion of sustainable fashion, and so it’s not a surprise, given the event, that her red carpet look had a very considered message.
She turned to London designer Harris Reed, who only graduated from Central Saint Martins last year and is one of the most-talked-about names in fashion thanks to his magical gender-fluid designs. Watson wore a dress from his S/S 22 collection, in which he upcycled second-hand wedding dresses and groomswear from Oxfam, creating striking looks that blend gowns with tuxedos. Watson’s reimagined wedding dress was modernised with an asymmetric silhouette and an open back with romantic, intricate lace straps falling over the shoulders, and she wore it over a pair of black flared trousers.
As for the jewellery, she layered earrings, bracelets and rings from Harris Reed’s collection with Missoma. They’re just as opulent as any of his designs, with pearl, star and moon details and cocktail rings that all have an antique charm and manage to be both gothic and romantic. Watson wore two pairs of the pearl-and-crescent earrings, layered bracelets and seven of the cocktail rings, looking like she had raided a Victorian jewellery box.
