Emma Watson in Misha Nonoo & Dior at the BFAs: mismatched or stunning?


Here are some photos from last night’s British Fashion Awards, one of the biggest nights for fashion… in the UK. I was right when I covered the London Evening Standard Theatre Awards yesterday – many fashion people were specifically in town for the British Fashion Awards, and they just showed up at the ES event the night before. Let’s start with Emma Watson, shall we? Emma wore this Dior coat over a Misha Nonoo jumpsuit. To me, this look is totally wrong for such a young woman. I know what she was aiming for, though, and I guess I have to give her some props for mixing it up and trying something different. PS: the lip color is wrong too.


Victoria Beckham wore her own design, of course. David came out to support his lady, and he wore Dior. I really dislike Posh’s ensemble.


Naomie Harris in Peter Pilotto. I love this on her – when everyone else is wearing gowns, she shows up in a great, colorful mini. Her body is amazing too.


Michelle Dockery in Erdem… this is actually one of my favorite looks of the night!


Alexa Chung looks like she’s carrying a fancy lunchbox.


Here are Cara & Poppy Delevingne, two of the Delevingne sisters. For my money, Poppy is much sexier than Cara. Cara still looks like Angry Baby to me, and I’m sort of aghast by Cara’s inability to make expensive clothes look interesting in the real world. Still, Cara won “Model of the Year” at this event. Sigh…Poppy’s dress is Topshop. Cara’s dress is custom Burberry.



Karlie Kloss in a shiny satin number. I’m not a fan. Not to be rude, but if you’re a tall, blonde-ish model and you look like every other tall, blonde-ish model, you should try a little bit harder to stand out from the crowd.

    I like Emma’s look and lipstick. I need Alexa’s bag. Super cute.

  2. lower-case deb says:

    Emma in Misha Nonoo?
    more like Oh honey, no.

  3. Sugar says:

    Alexa Chung’s look is adorable, surprisingly. She usually doesn’t dress well.

    I appreciate that Emma isn’t boring and bland. She takes risks. This outfit doesn’t quite work but I like that she tried.

  4. Abbott says:

    Vicky B kinda looks like a Cirque du Soleil contortionist who got caught in one of those overhead fabric dancing things.

    Emma has been wearing a lot of Dior this year. Huh.

    What ever happened to Alexa Chung? Wasn’t she supposed to be the next big thing?

    • Kiddo says:

      I thought Posh was holding a white satin skirt up against the black outfit that she was actually wearing; which I saw as an old-timey sweatshirt for cleaning up leaves in the yard, coupled with a pair of trousers = laundry day.

  5. Beth says:

    For the British FASHION Awards, the fashion on this red carpet is tragic.

    Victoria Beckham looked like she had a buffet table skirting pinned on her crotch.

    Alexa Chung looked like she just came from Sainbury’s carrying a Pepsi Cola 12-pack.

    Emma Watson’s hairstyle makes her forehead look humongous and she actually resembles ex-Manchester United defender Philip Neville here. And those pants.

    So much FAIL.

  6. For some reason, I have an irrational hate towards Emma Watson. I mean, I like that she’s standing behind the word ‘feminism’, and is doing charity work–doing a lot more than writing a check–but ugh. I can’t stand her. I’m a h8ter to the max. I don’t think she can act, and it’s amazing how many fans she has (I guess because of HP–but I didn’t like her in the HP movies very much).

    • Val says:

      I feel the same way! And I feel bad about it, cos she hasn’t done anything wrong, really. But there’s some pretentious, twee-precious, I’m-an-intellectual, thing about her… I don’t know. Like you said, it’s irrational.

    • Yup. says:

      Agreed. Objectively she seems like a nice enough person I guess (albeit kind of smug sometimes), and maybe more grounded than a lot of other stars her age, but something about her has always rubbed me the wrong way. My main gripe is that she can’t really act. I also don’t think she’s particularly attractive, which doesn’t bother me but does make the hype even more confusing.

      Oh, just read Val’s comment! That description is spot-on!

    • Breebree says:

      Me too! And she raises her eyebrows up and down non-stop. Annoying.

    • Lauren says:

      lol don’t worry about your irrational hate. I do hate Selena Gomez in a similar fashion!

      • Naddie says:

        Yeah, I thought I was the only one against Selena Gomez! She has zero appeal: no talent, no charisma, no inteligence, no.beauty…

  7. Karen says:

    Ooo i hate a lot of these looks. Emmas blazer looks like a 90s mom suit. No.

  8. Grrl says:

    Such a strange tone about the UK from this gossip colonist. Yes, this is a huge night for fashion in the UK. The UK is huge in fashion in Europe. European fashion is on another level to the US. So pipe down and dont sound so jealous you didnt get an invite. You may judge the clothes, but you’ll never get to wear them with an attitude like that. I’m assuming youre under the assumption that LA Fashion Week is a bigger deal than Milan :’)

  9. Kara says:

    Alexa looks cool except I think she could have gone with a different shoe.

  10. truthSF says:

    Poppy is sooooo much sexier than Cara “angry baby face” Delevingne. I like Naomi Harris’s outfit.

    • SK says:

      I love Poppy. I think she’s gorgeous, sexy and cute at the same time and she is just SO stylish. An absolute street fashion star.

  11. scout says:

    Love Emma’s jacket, her Pantaloons, not so much. I like her style. She was one of few nominated for British Fashion Icon 2014 along with “the one” with Python jacket.
    Telegraph announces British Fashion awards today I think. Stella McCartney was nominated for one of the best Fashion Designer 2014.

  12. paola says:

    Poppy has some great legs. Cara’s eyebrows are so distracting and when the make up is so heavy on her eyes she just looks like a caricature of herself.
    I’m all for important eybrows but that is a bit too much. I like Jennifer Connelly’s but Cara’s are just too too much.

    • CuriousCole says:

      I am so sick of Cara and her tendency to overdraw her eyes, then refuse to smile. She looks like a high-fashion zombie. Cara should take note of Lily Collins’ makeup. Lily knows how to accentuate bold brows without swamping attention to only half her face.

    • SpookySpooks says:

      Poppy has awful legs, are you kidding me? Her face is stunning, though.

      And Karlie isn’t just a tall blondish model. She’s one of the rare new models who actually has “it”.
      Alexa looks best here, but i love her style in general.

      • Charlie says:

        I agree with everything you said. Especially about Karlie.

        As for Emma, I hate her outfit, but her hair and makeup are bad too. She has a beautiful face, but she looks harsh here.

  13. Megan says:

    Why is Posh wearing an apron?

  14. scout says:

    Emma Watson won!! I voted for her!! Hurray!!! No Stella M, but Alexander McQueen did.


  15. Sarah says:

    Hmm… Oh, Emma Watson, I so want to be able to say something nice about you one day… but that’s not going to be today unfortunately! Interesting that even the designer’s name seems to be a subconscious request to not wear this outfit. No…Noo! Just no.

    Personally, I think Victoria Beckham’s outfit is hideous!
    Michelle Dockery’s dress is nice, I like it. Her face is odd to me though?
    Alexa Chung is so boring! How does she even get invited to these events!
    I think Cara Delevingne’s dress is fantatic – possibly the best thing I’ve ever seen her wear. Shame about the makeup/hair.
    Totally agree with Kaiser that there must be so many other dress choices for Karlie Kloss and that’s what she picked? It’s not even flattering, beyong making her look incredibly skinny… maybe that’s what flattering is to her? Makes her look wider at the top than at the bottom somehow?

  16. captain hero says:

    A rare misstep from Emma Watson, unlike Alexa Chung who is consistently terrible. I loved poppy delevigne’s wedding dress

  17. Danielle says:

    Emma looked beautiful without jacket, she was wearing a sleek and sexy jumpsuit.

  18. RussianBlue says:

    Posh’s FACE!!!!!!!!! What the…

  19. CuriousCole says:

    I do like Emma, but this outfit is a fail for me. I’m giving her points for always trying something new though, and her hair is great. I wish her lipstick was a few shades darker. She isn’t the best actress, and the other posters nailed her twee, precious attitude but Emma does test her limits. She appears to be less self-absorbed than her Hollywood peers and seems motivated to work, so I can’t join in the fun hating games.

  20. Chris2 says:

    This was fun!
    I meself really dig Emma W, for many reasons, and truly like this outfit. Ditto VBeckham’s….maybe they remind me of stuff I’d have worn yonks (70s) ago, and they’re a change from relentless bodycon ( if that’s the word).
    I’ve grown to enjoy Alexa’s various looks too, another who rejects the obvious ‘sexay’, which bores me to tears. (However I do like that colourful mini….she looks fun and at ease.)
    Cara Delawhoosh is tooooo much with us. I was tired of Mossy a while back but ye gods the Angry Bebeh makes me want to commit crimes of destruction. Stop glowering at us, you little twit!
    My take from the pics is that VB and Emma must now become good pals, since the Beckham house style is, imo, very much in keeping with Emma’s discreet fashion image.

  21. Alyce says:

    I’m a big Emma Watson fan and I actually think she looks good! The ones I dislike are the pink mini dress and the palm tree dress.

  22. vauvert says:

    Emma can do no wrong as far as I am concerned…. But the lip color and plastering her hair like that on top of her head are not flattering. I mean she is young and gorgeous, and she still looks young and gorgeous, but it would be so easy to take this look to wow levels. Everybody else… Blah.
    I never got Cara’s appeal. She always seems spoiled, half drunk, petulant and not anyone I would care to meet even for one second. Why all the designers choose this woman to represent their brand is beyond me. I loved Burberry for years and I have now gotten to the point where I will walk by the store without going in. (Obviously they are not crying in their soup because they lost me, but as a client that’s the only way to express an opinion).

  23. **sighs** says:

    I think Emma should have just worn the coat as a dress. That would’ve been sexy. The pants ruin it.
    Everyone else is so blah. This was at a fashion awards?

  24. Nikki says:

    I can’t say I like the trousers if I’m honest.

  25. Dolce crema says:

    Cara looks the best!

  26. Naddie says:

    Karlie takes the cake! Her gown is simple, but she ‘s stunning on it.
