Emma Watson in Oscar de la Renta at the ‘Noah’ premiere: lovely or too mature?


Here are some photos from last night’s NYC premiere of Noah, starring Emma Watson, Russell Crowe and Jennifer Connelly. Is this the first time the three leads have been together for the promotional push? I think so. Anyway, Emma went a little bit overboard with her premiere look, so let’s talk about her first. Emma wore this dramatic Oscar de la Renta gown in black duchess satin. This is a beautiful gown. I would have put it on Helen Mirren for a major awards show, not an early-20s starlet for a premiere. The dress is better from behind, with that gorgeous train and the deep V-back. I kind of think Emma’s styling is off here – her hair is too messy, her “bold lip” color too orange. If you are going to do a sophisticated, mature look like this, commit to it. Do a real hairstyle and go with a dark red lip.



Also: Ian Somerhalder came to the premiere (for no reason). Am I the only thinking, “Huh, maybe Ian should get with Emma?” She has a boyfriend, I guess, but for some reason, I think Ian and Emma would be sort of awesome together.


Jennifer Connelly wore Louis Vuitton – I’m not wild about this look. At all. I don’t really hate it, I’m just what-if-ing it. What if Jennifer had done full-on leather? What if she hadn’t worn those fug booties? What if the leather bodice had fit correctly? Also: Jennifer came with her husband Paul Bettany, who is a Forever Dong (for me). I love him so much.



And Russell Crowe was there, of course. Russell looks pretty good here? I never mind when he’s got some chub though.

    Emma looks great but, yeah, out of place I guess.
    And talk about out of place. What happened to Maximus? He looks like a high school football coach forced to chaperone the prom.

    • Tatjana says:

      I like the dress and the hair, she should have gone with a darker lip. But that is an award show dress, way too much for a premiere.

    • Hiddles forever says:

      Lol I guess Maximus is taking too seriously the fact he is the owner of the Rabbitohs… (It’s an Australian rugby team)

  2. Side-Eye says:

    She looks like she flew in on a broom.

  3. lenje says:

    Emma’s always a hit and miss. This dress is perfect for Helen Mirren, not her.

  4. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    Wow, Ian Somerhalder looks like Rob Lowe.

    • Kiddo says:

      YES, It’s crazy.

    • Hiddles forever says:

      Yep, just a bit taller! Creepy…

      • Mrs.Darcy says:

        Wow, how tall is Rob? Ian’s not that tall! He does look like him, and seems to be ageing well like him too. Am a closet Vampire Diaries fan, loving bad Damon this season!

      • Liv says:

        I am too! But I hate how the writers messed him up lately. So implausible..

    • mollie says:

      Yes, I have always said this, he’s Rob Lowe Lite.

    • bec says:

      I think they used the sane cheek and chin surgeon. I love the guy, but hope he stops messing with his face soon before he gets all melty faced.
      Ps. I think Emma looks like a little kid paying dress up in mummy’s old clothes

  5. mena says:

    Is Emma even a lead? I thought her character was on the same level as that Booth guy? Meh.

    She is wearing a great dress, but also starting to look like a little girl playing dress up.

    • Amy says:

      Emma definitely has a supporting role. She’s just promoting it as if she were a lead.

      Terrible dress. Her after party dress was much cuter

    • Seán says:

      Watson hasn’t been the lead in any movie. You could say she was one of a trio of leads in both Harry Potter and The Perks of Being a Wallflower but she’s never actually carried a film herself. She’s still used heavily to promote everything she’s in…they’re clearly using the Potter connection to hook in her fanbase.

  6. Joy says:

    I feel like if she were a foot taller it would look better. As it stands the dress is wearing Emma.

  7. OhDear says:

    Emma’s dress looks more like Angelina Jolie’s style (not hating on either of them).

  8. Sumodo1 says:

    Way too much dress on Emma! Halloween came early! Jennifer Connelly has never dressed well enough for her luminous beauty–which is why Paul Bettany (*swoon*) is her only neccessary accessory.

  9. Dorothy#1 says:

    I love Ian!!! Paul and Russell look great, the ladies not so much. :/

  10. lucy2 says:

    I like Emma’s dress, but it’s way too much for that event.
    Jennifer Connolly is insanely beautiful, but I don’t love the dress.

  11. Diana says:

    Oh! Paul Bettan! He’s her husband? I didn’t know that! God, he’s hot.

  12. smee says:

    Jennifer Connelly – very beautiful but that dress is horrid. A round, tight neckline is rarely flattering and the boots, the boots………she could have pulled it off with the right pair, but the color and fit – they look way too big on her.

    You’re 100% correct in your assessment of Emma’s look – hair too messy, lipstick too orange and dress too dramatic/mature. But she’s still amazing. So intelligent and pulled together.

  13. ray says:

    i think im in love with jennifers dress. emma would look cute if you took away the train and shortened the dress, far too ott.

    also off topic, has anyone seen mindy kalings lip fillers?

    • Rice says:

      I think I love Jen’s dress as well. I hate the shoes/booties though. Emma looks beautiful but she looks out of place. The guys look fabulous.

  14. RobN says:

    I think Emma is so tiny that she needs to be more careful about over dressing. She looks overwhelmed by it.

    And yes, it would look great on Helen Mirren, which certainly tells you that Emma shouldn’t be wearing it.

  15. Pandy says:

    I don’t get the great love for Emma Watson. She doesn’t have any sort of distinction to me that makes her stand out and I don’t consider her very fashion-forward either. I watched half of the first HP movie – perhaps the love is for the character and seeing the movies over the years? She was interesting to me when she was attending university, but of course, that didn’t last.

  16. Reece says:

    THAT is the dress Emma should have worn to the Oscars!

    I was there with Jennifer til I got to the booties…Nope!

  17. Allie says:

    The front isn’t that great but I do love the back. And I think her make up and hair look great, especially the lipstick. There. I said it.

  18. ZAK says:

    It’s official, I don’t get why people call. Emma Watson fashion forward because I almost never like how she dresses.

  19. Aysha says:

    The further she gets away from Harry Potter the more and more she looks like a dude.

  20. serena says:

    Hate Jennifer’s dress! So ugly! I don’t care for Emma’s dress, I think it’s fine. Maybe too much black but it kind of works on her.

    Ps. who is Emma dating now?

  21. Jessica says:

    Mmm… Paul Bettany.

  22. Nerd Alert says:

    Wait. Paul Bettany is married to Jennifer Connely?

    My heart just stopped. That’s amazing. What a hot couple. *has dreams*

  23. LAK says:

    Emma should sack whoever is styling her. That dress drowns her. She’s very small, height and weight, a ball gown with lots of satin material is wrong for her frame.

    Her clothing for this tour has been completely off and unsuited to her.

  24. John says:

    It’s only too mature because of the colour, a brighter hue would have been much better.
    I know I sound like a broken record, but Helen Mirren would have rocked that gown.
