Emma Watson had another real-life princess moment last night; but instead of channeling Cinderella like she did in London, she paid tribute to the heroine she plays in Beauty and the Beast when she stepped out in New York City wearing this yellow Dior dress.
The actress visited the New York Film Society Kids program on Monday evening dressed in a sleeveless yellow gown by Dior Haute Couture, much like the one Belle wears in that iconic Beauty and the Beastballroom scene. Watson’s rendition featured thinner straps and a less voluminous skirt, and was paired with a diamond choker necklace and a few rings.
Also like Belle, Watson shared her love for reading with the children in the audience and read them a passage from Beauty and the Beast.
This isn’t the only time Watson has aligned with the princess’ love for books. In recent months, the actress has been sharing her favorite reads on social media, and hiding novels in cities around the world for random passersby to find and enjoy. Belle would be proud.
Watson’s Belle-cinspired look is a stark difference from the gown she opted for at the actual NYC premiere, where she wore a sultry, sheer black dress with a dramatic open back and thigh-high slit. Talk about versatile
