Every Magical, Mystifying Dress Emma Watson Wore on Her Press Tour
Emma Watson took on the green carpet challenge back in 2015, committing to wearing only ethically made clothing. Back then, she and her stylist Sarah Slutsky would break down each element of her outfit, from dainty jewels to pumps, detailing where every item came from on Instagram. But Emma took things one step further as she promoted Beauty and the Beast on the film's press tour, which started in Paris.
Emma created a new account called @the_press_tour, where she shared sketches of her looks, all-angle videos, and lengthy captions that credited the teams who crafted her pieces. Many of the designers she tapped, like Stella McCartney, have been on board with using recycled materials for years. Emma's dresses and jumpsuits were "verified green" by Eco-Age, a company that promotes sustainability through core principles that include matters of pollution, labor work, and fabric resourcing.
Scroll to get a look at everything Emma wore — including Oscar de la Renta trousers that took her from the premiere red carpet to The Ellen DeGeneres Show along with a vintage YSL suit — then see the way she transformed Princess Belle's iconic yellow gown for the big screen.
Emma's Givenchy Haute Couture by Riccardo Tisci Dress
Not only was the dress created by Tisci (who is no longer at the fashion house), but the black chiffon and satin gown was made from Eco-Age-certified organic fabrics. Emma finished the look with a pair of black faux-leather heels and jewels by Ana Khouri and Eva Fehren.
Emma's dress featured a single slit, allowing her to show off her sandals.

Emma wore a twisted satin top with Oscar de la Renta trousers for a visit to The Ellen DeGeneres Show. She zeroed in on her jewels by Article22, which were crafted from Vietnam War shrapnel.

Emma's 3.1 Phillip Lim Coordinated Set
The actress opted for a sophisticated, all-black ensemble. She tapped 3.1 Phillip Lim for a look that was made with "responsibly sourced fabrics," including biodegradable yarn.
The outcome was an elevated take on comfort when she hit the red carpet, and Emma styled her outfit simply with matching hoop earrings and her Burberry silk pumps.
Emma's Emilia Wickstead Gown
Emma's Emilia Wickstead bespoke piece was created from unwanted fabric by an all-female team in the London atelier. She debuted it at the London screening of Beauty and the Beast.
