Was Emma Watson the best-dressed at the Harper’s Bazaar UK event?


Here are some photos from last night’s “Woman of the Year” event for Harper’s Bazaar UK, cosponsored by Estee Lauder. They gave awards to Keira Knightley and Emma Watson, amongst others. Keira wore Erdem, probably because the designer was on hand to win an award too. I don’t have some hard-and-fast rule about Erdem dresses – I’ve seen some Erdem pieces which are rather beautiful and some Erdem dresses which are just awful. It depends on the woman and the styling. This Erdem on Keira is… not great. The color is lovely and seasonal (so Christmasy!) but the whole look doesn’t really work. The neck is too high and Keira’s hairstyle sucks here.


Here’s Emma Watson in Dior. This is my favorite look of the event! I don’t even mind the ladybug (?) on her crotch. I do mind the hair, but it’s not that bad.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in Saint Laurent. I like the idea of this more than the execution. Smart black slacks and a glittery top is always a win in my book, but the giant one-shoulder thing ruins it and makes the top look so cheap.


Felicity Jones in Rosie Assoulin. THIS IS AWFUL! She looks like she just draped a flag around herself.

I’m really not into James Norton. If you are into him, God bless.

    Emma is so sweet and fresh-faced here. Makes Kiera and whomever that Rosie person is look like used-up plastic dolls.

    • Locke Lamora says:

      Wow that’s harsh. I personally don’t find Rosie pretty, but saying she looks like a used up plastic doll is a bit much, no?
      Keira on the other hand, is simply stunning. One of the most beautiful British actresses ever.
      Emma is also very pretty. Too bad she can’t act.

      • LoveIsBlynd says:

        Rosie would have looked so much better with her hair slicked back.

      • Timbuktu says:

        @Locke Lamora
        Oh, thank God! I thought I was the only one who found Emma to be a lousy actress. But yes, a very cute girl.

    • Gena says:

      Um, she’s also only 26. It’s pretty easy to be fresh faced when you’re literally fresh. I don’t know exactly how old the rest of them are but I’d guess they’re all over 30.

    • AngelaH says:

      You do know that you can compliment one person without having to insult anyone else, right?


      Emma Watson looks lovely.

      • Tris says:

        Thanks Angela. I guess I misunderstood the name and function of this site. So glad to have been schooled by someone as wise as you. Just call me a “nasty woman”!

    • perplexed says:

      Looks like Rosie just used bad make-up. Her actual face looks fine to me.

      Keira has always looked elegant to me.

  2. Mar says:

    Rosie can wear a trash bag and win

  3. tracking says:

    Just lovely. The rest, meh.

  4. Anguishedcorn says:

    I think Emma’s makeup is too much. Usually I love her makeup but the blush seems unblended and the brows are too dark.

  5. LiterallyaShambles says:

    Ah, my sweet Emma. I love this. She looks, dare I say… witchy.

  6. OhDear says:

    IMO, they are all meh. Emma W’s is actually my least favorite look out of the women listed – she looks uncomfortable, I’m not a fan of the dress, and comparatively she has a *lot* of blush on.

    Keira K. looks great in that color!

    • Lacia Can says:

      Agreed! I didn’t like any of the outfits, but I happen to love emerald green. We don’t see enough of it imo. So whenever someone wears it, I’m immediately drawn to it. I think Rosie’s top would be better if it was either an animal print or off the shoulder, but not both.

    • Poisonous Lookalike says:


      And is it just me, or does Keira’s face look a little different? I think this is the first photo I’ve seen of her post-pregnancy, and it looks like it changed her features a little.

  7. Locke Lamora says:

    Emma’s dress would be much better if the lining was black. But other than that it’s great.
    Keira’s dress would be better if the neck wasn’t as high. The hairbalso isn’t great, but she’s so pretty she pulls it off.
    Rosie doesn’t look boring for once, but the outfit isn’t great.

  8. ReineDidon says:

    Isn’t Emma’s dress Halloween themed ? If so I like it even more.

    I like Rosie’s outfit but her facial expressions ? Nope. Enough of the open mouth please.

  9. M4lificent says:

    Is that a pink unicorn coming out of Emma’s lady parts? It’s making me clench just looking at it.

  10. Lucy says:

    Someone please tell me I’m not the only one here who’s into James Norton!

  11. M says:

    Felicity Jones has been one big fail lately.
    I would like Keira’s outfit more as just a skirt and then a different sort of top.

  12. OTHER RENEE says:

    I love Keira’s dress, not the shoes (boring) or the hair. I dislike Emma’s dress. All of it.

  13. CornyBlue says:

    Rosie looks so damn good. Like aesthetically i get how good Emma’s dress looks but Rosie looks better in the entire look with the posing and all.

  14. gen says:

    I love Keira’s dress! Emma… not so much.

  15. Gaby says:

    Emma and Keira are just so damn pretty! Rosie should stop with the open-mouth, sexy expression, it makes her look ridiculous.

  16. lucy2 says:

    I would like the dress Keira is wearing if it didn’t have the sheer skirt. I’m so over that trend.

  17. Chinoiserie says:

    Keira has had hairstyle issues forever now.

  18. Lilo says:

    Where is Gillian Anderson? She won an award and looked fantastic!

  19. Lex says:

    Rosie’s face looks pained somehow – is this a normal expression for her?
    She looks a bit too injectioned or something.

  20. jinglebellsmell says:

    James Norton has woman hips.

    • LaDiabla says:

      Bahahaha….woman hips just reminds of me of a guy I once knew who nicknamed one of his male coworkers CBH (for child bearing hips). Yeah, guys are super bitchy too, who knew? /s.
      Even I was like, damnnn, that’s pretty low.

      If the neckline on Keira’s dress was different, then I’d give it to Keira. That green is so pretty, and she could’ve elevated it with some bold accessories (and different hair). I like Emma’s dress, but I’m sick of that netting and the ribbon choker thing. I came of age in the 90s and the resurgence of the choker has me baffled. Just stop it! Felicity looks like she’s wearing a tri-colored tablecloth that needed some ironing. Shame, I think she’s really pretty too.

  21. Mari says:

    Felicity: ketchup, mayo, and mustard.

  22. Anare says:

    Ha! 100% fug. Keira’s dress is bad. She looks a little heavier than she used to. IM NOT FAT-SHAMING! I could not care less about her weight but the dress looks like she is trying to cover up a little and it just looks uncomfortable. Too bad you can see through the skirt. Why not line it in a matching color? I can’t stand the Dior dresses. Each one is worse than the one before. RHW looks like a real housewives reject.
