Emma Watson in J. Mendel at the Gravity NYC Premiere

Posted on October 02, 2013

There’s a bit in our book, in the chapter on the red carpet, that many of our longtime Bitter Kittens will recognize. It’s about how it’s smart for a celebrity to dress according to the genre of movie she’s attending (action movie: dress slutty, rom-com: dress like a Valentine, superhero movie: primary colors, Oscar-bait movie: award-like metallics). Sandra Bullock kinda went with the sci-fi-appropriate minimal white with metallic accents (the Princess Leia, if you will) for this premiere, but we have to give it to Emma for really taking that theme and running with it.


Emma Watson attends the premiere of “Gravity” in New York City in J. Mendel off-the shoulder dress with tiered pleat detail and scuba silk band paired with an off white embroidered satin mini minaudiere and Manolo Blahnik for J. Mendel shela patent metallic booties.

We’re not super-crazy about the white band across the top. It feels kind of restrictive; like she wouldn’t be able to wave her arms in the air like she just don’t care, or point at anything in judgment. We like the layered hems, though. And the very subtle differences in the whites. Competing whites don’t always work, but it’s done well here. Of course the real story is at the bottom. Those robot-girl shoes are KILLA. They pretty much make the look.
