A Visual Guide To Emma Watson’s Best Red Carpet Moments


Being cast as beloved teen witch Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter films at nine years old gave Emma Watson an immediate spotlight and the task of being a role model to countless young girls. That could have been intimidating for some, but Watson has certainly taken the responsibility in stride, becoming a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations, and championing the fight for gender equality. In addition to all of her monumental accomplishments, Watson quickly became a fashion icon in her own right, as well. Over the past two-plus decades, we watched as Watson has stunned in lady-like dresses, glamorous couture gowns, and chicly tailored suits. She has wowed both in the front row at fashion week and on the red carpets of events like the Academy Awards and the Met Gala. Watson’s ladylike elegance is unfaltering, and on top of it all, she’s never one to shy away from a fashion risk. No wonder she now sits on the board of Kering, the parent company of Balenciaga and Gucci. Now, in honor of her 33rd birthday, we’re looking back at Watson’s best red carpet moments, from the first Harry Potter premiere in 2001 to today.
