This week sees the release of last movie installment of the Harry Potter franchise but it doesn’t matter if you are a fan or not there is no denying that Emma Watson has now firmly established herself as one to watch on the red carpet.  Emma wore a simply dreamy Oscar De La Renta couture gown to the London premiere last week so today’s post takes a look back at some of my favourite Emma Watson looks and how they can inspire your wedding day style.

Avid Bijou readers you will know that this was my number one red carpet look from this year’s BAFTA’s.  Emma Watson was angelic in Valentino couture gliding down the red carpet with a train of pleats and shimmering lace.  Muted tones are a huge wedding fashion trend for next year so take a leaf out of Emma’s fashionable book and pair with minimal accessories and soft pink lips.

Here’s Emma Watson with her freshly shirred locks in Marie Claire wearing Chanel.  If your wedding dress features a mix of fabrics and details such as flowers, feathers, embellishment, do keep your make up simple like Miss Watson sporting a soft smokey eye. And Bijou brides don’t be afraid to mix rock bangles and cocktail rings with your wedding gown.  

A young Emma Watson got to grips with her fashionista side quickly opting for Alexander McQueen at the National Movie Awards.  The embellishment on this dress would work beautifully with a vintage bridal hair comb worn to one side.  

Another of my all time favourite Emma Watson red carpet looks here in Burberry at the Met Gala.  This dress would be perfect for a modern bride looking for contemporary edge, I would team with silver shoes and a sharp ponytail or straightened locks.

And lastly a focus on make up – how gorgeous does Emma look in Italian Vogue.  Bijou brides note, for timeless elegance choose deep shades of red lipstick for your wedding day look – which work especially well with a heavy dose of diamonds!
