Emma Watson vs. Jennifer Connelly: who looked cuter at the ‘Noah’ premiere?


Here are some photos from last night’s Berlin premiere of Noah, the bloated, water-soaked Darren Aronofsky “Biblical epic” starring Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly and Emma Watson. Rusty didn’t even bother showing up (although he has been tweeting the Pope about the film, NO JOKE). So, the Berlin premiere turned into a fashion showdown between Jennifer Connelly and Emma Watson. They were wearing the same basic silhouette, but done in two very different ways.

First up: Emma in a Wes Gordon gown. Generally, I like navy (blue is my favorite color), but I do get tired of seeing navy gowns. Navy gowns (at this point) are more of a default choice than the little black dress. And if you’re committed to wearing a dark color, why not try a blood red or a dark eggplant? Those will pop more than navy. Now, that being said, this dress IS pretty. It’s inoffensively pretty, and the back detail is charming. My biggest complaint (besides the navy) is the styling – with that kind of back detail, Emma’s hair should not be down. And if she really fought to wear it down, at least get her a proper blowout. Also: it’s wrinkled, right? Or is that part of the design?

And here’s Connelly in black velvet Lanvin. I’m shocked by how much I love this. I usually think Lanvin is so overrated, and I usually think Jennifer gets it wrong or goes too avant-garde with her red carpet look, but this is really beautiful. You know who should try this silhouette? Duchess Kate. She would look great in this cut (only the small-breasted and strong-shouldered can make this work), but I suspect she would never try it because it’s so sophisticated and “older” (as opposed to the youthful college-girl looks she favors). For me, Connelly wins this showdown. Plus, this is the best velvet gown I’ve seen in a long time.

    I think they both look Amazing!!

  2. chloe says:

    I think Jennifer looks amazing, that dress is perfectly tailored to her body and her hair and makeup looks perfect and I like the back of Emma’s dress, it’s just to much navy and the material looks wrinkly.

  3. David99 says:

    Jennifer Connelly is almost perfect. She is beautiful.

  4. blue marie says:

    Love the back of Emma’s and the top of Jennifer’s, but they both look fantastic!

  5. Lucy2 says:

    I really like both gowns. Jennifer is so stunning!

  6. Summer says:

    Emma should never style her hair like that again. But her dress is fine.
    Jennifer is flawless.

  7. qwerty says:

    Emma’s trying to change her goody two shoes image I think, she’s been posing differently lately.

      She tried but when she gets backlash she immediately backtracks.

      For example, she was getting a reputation for getting around as much as Taylor Swift does and people were saying this right away when she dumped Will Adamowicz and got together with that new Oxford dude (what’s his name???) and she released a BS statement saying they broke up in the summer, so technically she was single for 6 months. A lie if you google “Emma Watson Will Adamowicz The Staves”…..they were together as recently as November. So she jumped from one boyfriend to the next in less than 1 month basically.

      Then she wanted to try to be a feminist with that whole “Ron would never make Hermione happy….not realistic….she’s a hard working woman blah blah” but after the HP fans cried foul, she said “those quotes were taken out of context and it was a joke really”.

      But she was the editor for Wonderland, so how the heck could the interview be taken out of context? And I read the interview (it’s on Ohnotheydidn’t) and there was zero indication either she or JK were joking, even if you read 2 paragraphs above or below the relevant quotes.

      Then of course there’s her usual “Education is my passion. I’m returning to Brown” when her career is doing badly, but then after the bad press passes, she quickly jumps into a new project and delays returning to Brown….done this 3 times already and will probably be 4 since she claims she’s graduating in May 2014, but how can she do that if she’s traveling all over the world?

    I want Emma’s dress. I love it. And I love the color.

  9. Amanda_M87 says:

    I want Emma’s dress sooo bad.

  10. Kali says:

    Paul Bettany is a lucky lucky man! Jennifer’s just ridiculously gorgeous in those photos.

  11. Aria says:

    Both ladies looked equally beautiful.

  12. Size Does Matter says:

    It makes sense to wear navy to the premier of a movie about … a boat.

  13. Tig says:

    I loved the back detail of Emma’s dress, and I love navy/midnight blue. I love the fit of Jennifer’s gown, but I can’t tell too much about it from this pic. She is stunning.

  14. smee says:

    They both look great – the back of Emma Watson’s dress is perfect for her. But I love Jennifer Connelly and I’m glad to see her working more. Her dress looks fantastic on her – nothing amazing about the dress, it just looks good on her. Her hair-do is a bit helmet-haired-old-lady for her tho………………

  15. Fd says:

    Jennifer is gorgeous. With her hair like that she looks like a dark haired Kristen Scott Thomas. Emma looks like she is wearing her mother’s dress. She is dull.

  16. Lucy says:

    They both look lovely. Also, Logan Lerman!!!

  17. Isadora says:

    Both look great, but Emma’s dress is divine!!! I wish she would have styled her hair differently. So in the end it’s a tie.

  18. gobo says:

    That dress on Jennifer, it belongs with louboutins.

  19. Whitney says:

    Jennifer Connelly is awesome. She wins everything, hands-down, every time, as far as I’m concerned.

  20. Lux says:

    Has Jennifer had some subtle tweaking? She still looks stunning (of course!) but she’s looking a little toxed in the forehead.

  21. TrixC says:

    Jennifer Connelly looks amazing – although I don’t get Kaiser’s comment that this look only works on the small-breasted, Jennifer has fantastic boobs.

  22. Zsazsa says:

    If Emma spent more time on her acting instead of wearing pretty dresses in magazines, she might get a decent movie role

    • taxi says:

      Perks of Being a Wallflower? Bling Ring? My Week with Marilyn?
      She’s got lots more money than most in the bus & can do as much or as little as she chooses. Nothing wrong with wearing pretty dresses,especially when someone pays you to do so. Noah may not be a great movie, but Jennifer & Russell are in there too along with Anthony Hopkins, Ray Winstone, Frank Langella.
      Snark about movie roles from a Gabor namesake is funny.

    Love them both, they look smashing.
