Emma Watson in white Ralph Lauren at UK ‘Noah’ premiere: lovely or too bridal?


Did you know Paramount spent $125 million on Noah? And that’s just the production – I would imagine the PR campaign is around $30-40 million as well. And I was sure that Noah was going to bomb like a Biblical Waterworld, but it “won” the weekend box office (North American) with about $41 million in sales. Plus, they’re hustling this movie big-time overseas too. Which brings me to these photos – these are pics from the big London premiere last night.

Emma Watson wore this Ralph Lauren gown for the premiere. Sigh… I like it. I know some of you are going to say it’s bridal, and maybe it is… but I really like it. I like it so much more than the oversized DRAMA gown she wore to the NYC premiere last week. The cut is beautiful on her figure, I love her hair (so much better here than in NYC as well) and I actually think the side-slit is what saves this gown from looking too bridal. Plus, her jewelry helps too. PS… is the guy in the grey suit her boyfriend?



I’m also including photos of Jennifer Connelly in a very odd Alexander McQueen gown. I understand the desire to wear McQueen in England, but this just looks too goth/wintery for this premiere. I tend to think J-Con is pretty overrated as a Fashion Girl though. She rarely pulls off the looks she’s attempting. I’m also including a photo of Russell Crowe and his date (???) Hugh Jackman. Remember, they did Les Mis together. I guess they’re BFFs now.

    Its beautiful, and if I ever get married it would be a lovely chilled garden wedding dress. she really is very pretty

  2. QQ says:

    This is a great flattering non fussy dress for her petite figure, not bridal at all

    Can i be real a minute? I don’t understand what is the big fuss and attachment with this girl, she isnt offensive or anything I just dont understand the hoopla and big expectations and swooningness over her

    • LadySlippers says:

      It’s a stunning dress on her. No doubt about it.

      I think the fuss is left over from HP and she has shown some promise acting outside of HP (Perks of a Wallflower was sublime). And she’s pretty. Everyone’s a sucker for a pretty young woman.

      • deanna says:

        Lady Slippers you are dead on…
        I admired her acting chops in Perks of a Wallflower. She looks clean, gorgeous and modern in the dress. I think her hair slicked straight back onto a low pony and gorgeous flat sandals with some details would have made it look more youthful and modern. Love her ability to communicate with press effectively. She could be in my Toastmasters Class!

    • I’m with you–I don’t think she can act…she’s okay and mediocre—not someone that I want to see at all. She has no ‘oomph’ in her acting, no charisma….that’s about as nice as I can be.

      She’s cute and all–but I’m not seeing how she’s SO gorgeous, like some others have claimed. And she was the worst thing in Harry Potter.

      • Emma - the JP Lover says:

        @ … well, You Ladies …

        I saw “Noah” Friday evening and the big surprise in the film is Emma Watson’s performance. She really nails it, BIG time. She had me crying like an idiot in one scene. :(

        She gave a mature, nuanced performance and really held her own with Russell Crowe. Please don’t judge this beautiful and gifted young actress based upon your childhood memories of her in the “Harry Potter” films. She will earn your respect in this film. I predict many mature scripts in her future, and I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised if she earned a Best Supporting Actress nod with her performance. :)

    • Tatjana says:

      She played Hermione. There will always be hoopla. Harry Potter was a part of my childhood like no other book or movie series ever was. I read the first book when I was 8 and saw the last movie when I was 18. Harry Potter was a big deal for an entire generation. I don’t think Twilight or Hunger games will ever come close to that-
      I didn’t like the way she played Hermione and I think she’s a very limited actress ( she was mediocre at best in Perks of being a wallflower) – but still, she was Hermione.

    • Kali says:

      I think she has a lot of affection/goodwill for the fact that she’s managed to avoid, at least visibly, going off the rails too. She’s brilliant in “The Bling Ring” too.

      • Wiffie says:

        The bling ring was what made me realize how good she was. She played that girl to a t! I’d seen “pretty wild”, and knew who she was playing in a second. Everyone else in that movie was totally generic, but you KNEW who Emma was playing. That only happens with a skilled actress.

    • We Are All Made of Stars says:

      Amen. This is the most meh chick out there. She’s kinda nice, kinda smart, kinda good-looking, kinda nicely dressed, and not the least bit captivating.

    • booboocita says:

      Y’all need to see Noah. Her acting was absolutely sublime. She totally stole the movie.

  3. Loopy says:

    Its a nice simple and elegant dress,it would of looked less bridal if she had a bright red or blue shoe with it.

  4. LadySlippers says:

    I think white and bridal need to divorce one another.

    They should consciously uncouple and support one another as they explore their individual horizons and possibilities.

  5. Kali says:

    Oh, Russell darling, Maximus means you will forever hold a place in my heart (even despite your terrible murdering of “Stars”) but don’t voluntarily stand beside Hugh Jackman when he’s coming off Wolverine beast mode. It does you no favours.

  6. Sarah says:

    the guy in grey is the publicist. he is kind of famous on his own because he also reps Tom Hiddleston. so Toms fans embrace him, too. Luke Windsor is his name, there are some sites dedicated to him with funny pictures of him trying to steer Tom away from trouble.

    i think Emmas outfti overall seems very simply but also very beautiful. one of her best looks as far as i can remember.

  7. Lilacflowers says:

    Emma’s dress is lovely. Jennifer’s dress is way too busy and those flower things on top are way too heavy.

  8. serena says:

    Russel Crowe bringing Hugh Jackman as his date… SUPER CUTE! I wanna hug them both and then do something else with Hugh.. mmh….

    Anyway, I like Emma’s outfit but I would have liked it more if it was in another colour.. white is to blah!

  9. Isa says:

    She reminds me of Katie Holmes with her lopsided smirk.

  10. aquarius64 says:

    The dress is lovely on Emma.

  11. Christina says:

    Emma looks, in a word, perfect!

  12. paola says:

    i don’t know what’s wrong with biblical movie but I can’t actually wait to see it. I like Russell Crowe and Jennifer Connolly together and Emma Watson too, she might not be the best actress out there but she is very likeable.

    That dress is gorgeous. I don’t see anything bridal about it apart from the color of course and she wears it impeccably.

  13. Tania says:

    I do think it looks a bit like a prom dress. Jennifer Connelly on the other hand, can do no wrong. I do wish there were actually photos of the two of them together. It seems awkward that they don’t have any photos together.

  14. Belle Epoch says:

    Has anybody seen the movie? Was it a good choice for Emma Watson? I have to say it sounds absolutely awful – and I don’t mean the Christian hysteria about it.

    • Kali says:

      Biblically, I can’t comment on it one way or another. As a movie, I found it quite interesting. There are some incredible sequences in there (Noah tells the creation story) and some gorgeous shots in there that are worth seeing from a film nerd perspective. It’s a little soulless though, if that makes sense. I feel like the fact that Darren Aronofsky actually had a big budget to play with for this movie meant that something got lost (as compared to something like “The Wrestler”).

      As for Emma, she’s ok. She doesn’t distinguish herself massively but I can imagine it would be hard when the only other female is the always reliably excellent Jennifer Connelly.

  15. Anne says:

    The McQueen gown is incredible…who could resist wearing it?

  16. SamiHami says:

    Not all white dresses are bridal looking. This one isn’t. I’m not much of a fan of hers (although I don’t hate her, either…just kinda “meh”), but this is probably one of her better looks.

  17. Daz London says:

    The guy in the grey suit is Hugh Jackman

  18. Nicolette says:

    Love Emma’s dress, but it would’ve been nice if she smiled and looked a little happier.

  19. christine says:

    Jen Connelly is looking a little tight. It’s good work though.

    • Mrs. Darcy says:

      I was just thinking her face is perfection. And I wish I’d never tweezed my brows ever, because they will never be that lush again. I would hate to think she’d had a lift as she is relatively young for major surgery like that and the risk of ruining her face would be a great one. It could just be that she hasn’t any fat on her and her hair is pulled tight?

  20. Jade says:

    Without the slit, the gown will look boring so ok I like it. The sea carpet is interesting.

  21. huh says:

    I’m mote fascinated by that carpet!
    I need that ish in my life!!

  22. Jh says:

    The water illusion flooring (I don’t know what to call it!) is sooo cool. I love it!

  23. Mrs. Darcy says:

    I like Emma’s dress, though her bedazzled updo and white pumps are borderline bridal with the white, imo the dress itself is fine and has a nice simplicity without being boring either. Love the strappy halter in particular, that is not often a look on bridal gowns these days so I get no wedding-y feelings from it. I’m surprised her styling is so off, usually she can be relied on to wear overly edgy shoes which I think might have worked better with this.

    Jennifer’s dress is like a black swan hot mess but the colours suit her so beautifully I’m almost willing to forgive it. I kind of love the feathered skirt, the top half makes it garish though I love the colour scheme and even the rose appliques – it’s maybe the middle that’s throwing it off? Despite being semi sheer it is thickening in the middle which is hard to do on a woman as thin as her. Also, Where is Paul Bettany? No pics or was he not there? Paul Bettany in a suit is way more exciting to me than Russell or Hugh. Hugh needs to stop dying his hair if he wants a gray beard, it looks ridiculous.

  24. ZsaZsa says:

    Yawn! Another picture of Emma wearing a pretty dress. That’s all she does and every now and again she actually makes a film. She had potential but Noah is actually quite disappointing.

    Stop wearing pretty dresses and start auditioning girl.

  25. Lemon says:

    I like the dress on her — simple and elegant. I don’t care for her hair. I like the loose bun, so maybe it’s the side swept front or those confetti dots, but something is off with it.

  26. Chinoiserie says:

    I do not think she looks bridal with the cut but I can see that with the shoes and the hair why some people would see that way.

  27. ichsi says:

    The dress is nice, not more not less. She has a great figure so it works, but on most other people it would look rather boring.

    And Hugh is in London to promote X-men, so I guess that’s why he met up with Russel?

  28. InvaderTak says:

    The best thing about these pictures is the carpet, walk-way thing. The water is cool looking.

  29. John says:

    I don’t think it’s bridal, but I also don’t think it’s a particularly flattering cut for her figure. Her shoulders look very broad (way wider than her hips) and her breasts look small. She’s out of proportion, somehow.

  30. Jackson says:

    Simple. Lovely. Not bridal at all.

  31. Maum says:

    This girl is so meh. She has really bad posture and is permanently smirking.

    In case you’re wondering why I don’t like her… She is such a hypocrite. First she said she wanted to be ‘just an actress’. Then ‘just a student. Until she dropped out of uni and attended every premiere under the sun and became a fashion icon and made the last HP premiere all about her by sobbing loudly and embarrassing her co stars.

    She then moaned about being famous because of HP and in an interview complained about how it wasn’t fair that other actresses got to audition and she never had the ‘debutante’ phase.
    WTF? She is an average actress who would NEVER had made it without HP. At least Radcliffe is humble and self aware enough to acknowledge that HP made him.

    Her latest is that she ‘can’t wait to age’. Apparently she finds older women with flaws so much more interesting. SHUT. UP. She’s 23. Are we expected to find her brave or something?

  32. Hiddles forever says:

    I like Emma’s dress for once and… I also like the sea carpet, fantastic!

  33. weegie warrior says:

    She is stunning – thats all ive got

  34. Sakurau121 says:

    Emma is great in these photos but… (this is celebitchy) I think she’s just a bit too thin? Slightly worried… But that’s just my opinion.

  35. Sammy says:

    I find Emma really dull fashion-wise, and while I’m going to deny she looks pretty this whole look is nothing special to me. Jennifer, on the other hand, can do no wrong in my look – I’d much rather an actress take risks and do interesting things with her wardrobe, and most of the time Jennifer’s risks pay off.
