Emma Watson In Rafael Lopez – Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 2 London Photocall

Emma Watson and the cast of “Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 2,” attended a photocall for the movie at St Pancras station in London on Wednesday.

Emma stood out wearing a Rafael Lopez mini dress with her new darker hair colour.

Thankfully she’s ditch the blonde hair colour she sported at the MTV Movie Awards.

After feeling quite lukewarm to recent red carpet looks, I adore Emma’s gorgeous black chic mini dress with a gold bodice, black lace overlay, plus tulle ruffled details on the skirt and shoulders.

A black patent leather waistband and Chanel black pumps completed the look.

This is Emma back to her glorious best.

As this was a daytime event and she didn’t want to appear to be too dressy in comparison to her co-stars in jeans and khaki pants, I understand her decision to wear simple shoes.

With that in mind I’m praying for better shoes at the London Premiere on Thursday night.

If the name Rafael Lopez sounds familiar, that’s because Emma wore the same designer to the Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 1 London Premiere which you guys not only voted BDOTW, but you also voted it the 4th BDOTY on the Reader’ Choice list.

Rafael Lopez is sold at Atelier-Mayer in London.

    what an ugly dress, it looks like something handmade and not in a good way.

    i thought the new HP movie wouldnt be out til november but must have got it mixed up with the new twilight movie.

    • Marvel July 7, 2011 at 00:06 #

      HP was always meant to come out in the summer. The previous one came out approx 6 months ago (most likely they could promote the DVD before the new one).

      Dont you ever get HP and Twilight mixed up, when one is clearly far more superior :)

      • avika July 7, 2011 at 14:47 #

        I hate when people compare HP to Twilight. HP is much bettter.

        • Marvel July 7, 2011 at 17:34 #

          I know. HP is in a completely different league

        • Lisa September 16, 2012 at 00:59 #

          You’re comparing them right now. It’s impossible to say one is better than the other because they’re both way too different.

  2. Jen July 6, 2011 at 23:57 #

    So much love for this look and this girl.

  3. Marvel July 7, 2011 at 00:04 #

    I love the new hair colour but I do think the dress is a bit OTT for a photocall. A simple sheath dress would have been fine or a skirt and top.

  4. Ellie July 7, 2011 at 00:04 #

    I hate to use this word, but this looks chavtastic, the ruffles look terribly cheap. and the poor girl just doesn’t suit the gamine look. The look I think she rocked most was the Ossie Clarke a few years back. Now it just feels like she is trying to shock/prove she isn’t Hermione. Shame, what a waste!

  5. Kat July 7, 2011 at 00:22 #

    For me, the dress has too much going on, but this is emphasised by how out of place it looks next to everyone else more casual looks.

  6. Rebecca Z July 7, 2011 at 00:33 #

    Not loving the dress-for me it is the ruffles on the shoulders–get rid of those and it might work!

    • Marlie July 7, 2011 at 02:19 #

      I agree

    • Rahel July 7, 2011 at 10:09 #

      I see it the same way. I think it’s kind of cute but the ruffles on the shoulder are just too much.

  7. Henrique July 7, 2011 at 00:35 #

    The only thing I like her is the hair.

  8. Katie July 7, 2011 at 00:37 #

    I think she looks nice, but it is definitely too much for the event. She stands out from everyone else because she is so dressed up. I think a more casual look would have worked better at this event. I also think it looks a little too much like what she wore to the last premiere.

    • Juliana July 7, 2011 at 02:24 #

      My thoughts exactly.

  9. Nat39 July 7, 2011 at 00:42 #

    I adore the dress as well, it looks great on Emma’s figure. And the pumps go well with it. Great, love it.

  10. moja31 July 7, 2011 at 01:00 #

    she’s definitely still overdressed, but that’s fine by me, she looks nice. i like the darker hair color, but it seems her pixi cut is in that awkward growing out phase already.

  11. claire July 7, 2011 at 01:40 #

    i think she overdressed for the event…not a day wear

  12. Amanda July 7, 2011 at 01:43 #

    I dobp like the dress itself, though I agree it looks very similar to the one she wore to the last premiere and that it is too much for the event! She stands out and not in a good way-she looks totally out if place! The boys are wearing jeans and khakis…..

    • Fashion Critic July 7, 2011 at 05:49 #

      But the boys have always worn jeans and khakis

      I love that she dressed up

  13. Jessica July 7, 2011 at 01:43 #

    I guess I am in the minority because I actually really like this dress. :) I think she looks fabulous

    • KateS July 7, 2011 at 09:08 #

      me too!

      • mol July 7, 2011 at 15:01 #

        Me three!

  14. Amanda July 7, 2011 at 01:44 #

    Her hair looks great though!

  15. Gabby July 7, 2011 at 01:51 #

    She looks beautiful! I love her hair! Emma is dressed appropriately for the event. Most celebs do dress up for the photocall hence the suits a lot of the older actors are wearing.

    • Fashion Critic July 7, 2011 at 05:47 #

      I don’t get why she is being labeled overdressed.

      Had she dressed like her co-stars people would have had a fit

      She is the lead female star in a big budget movie, so I too think she’s appropriately dressed

      • hauteness July 7, 2011 at 13:16 #

        Totally agree! My mom always told me, “when in doubt, remember it’s far better to be overdressed than underdressed…”

        • Fashion Critic July 7, 2011 at 15:37 #

          Wise woman :)

  16. Vee July 7, 2011 at 01:51 #

    very awkward smile.

  17. Linda July 7, 2011 at 02:00 #

    I wish she’d saved this dress for an evening event and put on a great pair of strappy black or bronze sandals (to complement the bodice colour) .

    She looks like she’s having fun, love the pic of her smiling and laughing. Her hair is cute and the dress is very nice in a unique and quirky kind of way.

    As it is, the dress seems so out of place for a photocall and the shoes bring it down.

  18. Raquel July 7, 2011 at 03:37 #

    She looks so pretty. But something more colorful would have been better, I think and look less overdressed.

  19. pam July 7, 2011 at 03:37 #

    Yeah, the simple shoes will fix it. Not over-dressed at all.

  20. Lisa July 7, 2011 at 04:15 #

    Right dress, wrong time.
    It’s a great look but I agree with other readers that it’s a little OTT for a photocall. It also feels a bit dark and heavy for July.

  21. Laura July 7, 2011 at 04:21 #

    I think she drowns in that dress. And she doesn’t give any breath of life to that dress. I still adore her though.

  22. Joe July 7, 2011 at 04:25 #

    hm. well, it’s not a “no-brainer” meaning it’s not immediately bad nor immediately great. I don’t particularly like the cap-sleeves (if I can call them that). they don’t help the dress which I think is not that bad of one. I like the ruffles on the bottom. what’s bothering me most is her hair. it’s either great or bad. and now, it’s bad. the color’s fine, although i prefer the lighter colour she had for the MTV movie awards. i think if she were to push those sideburns behind her ears we’d be good to go.

  23. karen July 7, 2011 at 04:56 #

    Tom Felton is so dreamy looking.

    • asherlev1 July 7, 2011 at 07:27 #

      best comment on this page tbh. :D

      gave me a laugh.

      • karen July 7, 2011 at 18:40 #

        he is quite dashing.

  24. roxana July 7, 2011 at 07:02 #

    when i saw this dress, it reminded me of the one with lace wore in 2010. lovely!

  25. asherlev1 July 7, 2011 at 07:27 #

    Lol, I didn’t remember the designer name, but the dress itself gave me a major case of deja vu.

  26. Megan July 7, 2011 at 07:49 #

    I wasn’t a fan of th e first one and I’m not a fan of this.They are very similar and this one is like a cheap looking marchesa knock of.

    • Anna July 7, 2011 at 10:54 #

      took the words out of my mouth

  27. A July 7, 2011 at 07:51 #

    She doesn’t look bad, but it’s a bit ott for the occasion, besides it being all black in the middle of the summer. And it’s so dejavu compared to last year’s look.

  28. Jennie July 7, 2011 at 08:05 #

    FC, this is completely irrelevant, but how come some of your links to past entries do not work anymore? keeps saying “pages not found.”

    • Fashion Critic July 7, 2011 at 16:22 #

      Yes we are working to fix this.

  29. Gaber July 7, 2011 at 09:15 #

    A pale copy of last year’s look – the dress is over-done (the details on the shoulders and the insanely heavy skirt detail) and the hair is really bad compared to the short, blond do.
    Too bad.

  30. Elena July 7, 2011 at 09:26 #

    It’s definitely a deja-vu moment, I feel like I’ve already seen it not once, but several times on her! Besides, the black is not the best color for a photocall, imo

  31. Alexandra July 7, 2011 at 09:30 #

    she looks great, but maybe dress in lighter colour would be prefered? i don’t know but i’m sure she will sweep us of our feet at the premiere.

    and by the way, she’s so lucky! i can’t decide between rupert grint and tom felton anymore! God, do they look good!

  32. Maggy July 7, 2011 at 10:30 #

    I really like this look. I think she looks adorable especially with the hair.
    That beig said: isn’t St Pancras an odd place for a photocall? It’s Harry Potter after all; Kings Cross would make more sense, wouldn’t it? Although that would be far less glamourous :P

    • Fashion Critic July 7, 2011 at 15:39 #

      I suppose but Kings Cross usually has a lot of undesirables hanging around

  33. Victoria July 7, 2011 at 10:31 #

    If Emma’s not going to dress up, who is? ;) I really like this look, to me, I think’s it’s fine for a photocall! It’s girly and pretty and suits her well. :D Hope this makes it to BDOTW. :)

  34. Catherine July 7, 2011 at 11:02 #

    Much prefer the dress she wore to the London Premiere for Part 1.
    It does look a bit heavy for Summer..and can’t say i like the details in the shoulders and the skirt ruffles..kinda reminds me of 80s prom dresses!

  35. eve July 7, 2011 at 11:48 #

    i totally love the shoes!!!!!

  36. CreoleLady July 7, 2011 at 13:22 #

    Deja vu and black pumps. A decided lack of stylistic imagination. There are so many cute, chic, stunning looks for day. Too bad, as Emma would look great in many of them.

  37. kiwi July 7, 2011 at 13:30 #

    Love it, Like the hair color but don’t like the sideburns

  38. noo July 7, 2011 at 15:10 #

    i don’t like it, the ruffles and the lace and the belt are way too much! and her ears creeping out of her hair is horrible, reminds me of spock :S

  39. D July 7, 2011 at 15:46 #

    cute, but i prefer a lighter shade of hair, or different make up???
