Clemence Poesy In Chanel Couture – “Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 1″ World Premiere

Clemence Poesy also attended the “Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 1? World Premiere last night.

The French actress was the very picture of subtle elegance wearing a Chanel Fall 2010 Couture dress.

Her navy lace Couture dress with voluminous sleeves had a beautiful black velvet detail on the bodice.

Clemence wasn’t going to make any style statements at this premiere like Emma; she arrived with that graceful air of not even knowing how amazing she looks.

Clemence carried what looked like a a book, but her “La Belle et la Bête” (Beauty and the Beast) book is actually a clutch by Olympia Le Tan.

Bizarrely it works 🙂

    Oh. My. God. I’m running out of words. I totally love this look, it’s just perfection!

    Not even the Chanel name can save this one for me. It looks like something that was picked off the floor in Klara’s closet and given to the much-smaller Heidi to wear at dinner.

    And I love the clutch, The beauty and the beast… I’ve always wanted a clutch/purse by Olympia Le Tan, but they cost like a car…

  4. Emi November 13, 2010 at 9:56 am #

    First of all I really dislike the dress, the big sleeves and the black details make it very “heavy” and old. Said that, as I often write, French women are really understated and classy, the opposite of almost American women who need to pose, always, but this is not a critic, anyway, just an opinion.

    I don’t know why but I’m in love with this look! I can’t put my finger on it but I love the ‘romantic’ feel of the whole outfit. Clemence and Emma’s looks are so different that I don’t think it’s fair to compare them. Both girls look outstanding! The book/clutch is so cute!

    Clemence Posey is boring. I was so glad when her stint on Gossip Girl was short.
    This dress is not pretty at all. All of the black satin (?) ruffles are distracting.

    • Fashion Critic November 12, 2010 at 11:58 pm #

      Agree i found her very boring on GG

      Her character and acting were so dull

  7. karen November 12, 2010 at 11:10 pm #

    This is probably the one dress that looks better up close and in person than in print.

  8. Liz November 12, 2010 at 9:20 pm #

    I would like the dress more if it were longer or shorter. However, I love the clutch. She looks beautiful. That’s a great color on her.

  9. Amber November 12, 2010 at 8:40 pm #

    Oh my god, there are people who actually think this is a good looking dress? This is one of the ugliest things I’ve ever seen! It looks like a DIY prom dress from the 80s that was made by the girl’s poor blind aunt. Hideous!

    • Ayesha November 13, 2010 at 1:02 pm #

      totally….though i wouldn’t be so harsh,i have a soft corner for anything Chanel.
      and anyway isn’t this about different views,anyone is free to say it’s ugly but why judge others.

      • suzan November 14, 2010 at 10:25 am #

        i agree too..this is a boring look.clemence posey looks older than she is.i really really hate this dress on her.
        she is a young beautiful girl but this dress is sooo wrong on her.

        • suzan November 14, 2010 at 10:27 am #

          Not at all BDOTW worthy!!!

  10. Lee Ann November 12, 2010 at 8:04 pm #

    I think it is a stunning dress I really wish that she would have worn the boots though.

  11. adrien November 12, 2010 at 6:41 pm #

    J’adore! Et vive la France! Ah ah
    She looks really good IMO!
    The clutch is sooo cool! but so expensive (more than 1000€)

  12. Amanda November 12, 2010 at 5:53 pm #

    Loooooooooooooooooooooove it!!! I’m dying!!!!! BDOTW for sure!!!

  13. mol November 12, 2010 at 5:16 pm #

    I think I like this better than Emma’s look – they both look outstanding, but in different ways. My preference would be with Clemence in the end, partly because of her easy coolness plus the quirky factor of the clutch – love that a lot!

  14. Ethne Blist November 12, 2010 at 3:31 pm #

    I don;t like her pumps. They should be satin or velvet. They are boring and hold the look down. I am in love with the dress though.

  15. Henrique November 12, 2010 at 3:18 pm #

    I love the clutch and I don’t even mind the shoes as she looks amazing.. BDOTW worthy. Much prefer this look than Emma’s one.

  16. Luiza November 12, 2010 at 3:15 pm #

    She looks stunning to me. Clemence is become one of my favorites. Love the dress and everything about this look. And she looks SOOOO much better than Emma too.

  17. Helen November 12, 2010 at 2:35 pm #

    She makes elegance look easy. She looks amazing in Chanel without trying to steal Emma’s shine. I love her brunette locks too.

  18. Karen November 12, 2010 at 1:32 pm #

    Dont like the dress
    Boring chanel color…

    • adrien November 12, 2010 at 6:38 pm #

      We all got it!

  19. Hannah November 12, 2010 at 1:32 pm #

    I adore it. She was really underwhelmign in the hands of hte gossip girl stylists. I really hope she dresses thi swell in future. She gives the looks that you can write-off as red carpet material.
    The ahir na dmakeup are perfection!
    I want the clutch so desperately now!

  20. Laura November 12, 2010 at 1:31 pm #

    Really like this look. And Clemence knows how to carry it. She’s working it well.

  21. ellie November 12, 2010 at 12:56 pm #

    BDOTW pleeeease!!

  22. Giuseppi Giraffe November 12, 2010 at 12:55 pm #

    I love the clutch! I want one…

  23. Terry November 12, 2010 at 12:53 pm #

    I think she looks fabulous! I prefer her with dark hair, it makes her more mysterious than ever!

  24. Alicat November 12, 2010 at 12:33 pm #

    Demure and classy but pretty at the same time. I like it as it is different to what all the others wore.

  25. asherlev1 November 12, 2010 at 12:28 pm #

    BDOTW. Sorry, but I’m just not feeilng Emma quite that much.


    • Karen November 12, 2010 at 1:31 pm #

      I don’t agree

  26. Claudia November 12, 2010 at 11:47 am #

    I was expecting her to wear Chanel. She looks lovely.

  27. Jarrold November 12, 2010 at 11:47 am #

    OMG, She looks outstanding. I love the book/clutch

    • Marvel November 12, 2010 at 11:59 pm #

      Me too. I found the clutch was a nice touch to a very nice Chanel look

  28. Ben November 12, 2010 at 11:44 am #

    She looks great! BDOTW, maybe…

  29. Gillian November 12, 2010 at 10:54 am #

    Looks like a 40 years old

    • Karen November 12, 2010 at 1:31 pm #


  30. Sharona November 12, 2010 at 10:50 am #

    Lovely. And she isn’t posing and gurning for the cameras like some other people last night either. Some people just don’t need to try.

    • Karen November 12, 2010 at 1:38 pm #

      shes not the big star! sorry! LOL

      • Sharona November 12, 2010 at 2:08 pm #

        The word’s spelled “cough”. And what does it matter if she’s not the big star? What’s that got to do with anything? Gwyneth Paltrow’s a bigger star than Emma Watson will EVER be, and she doesn’t feel the need to pose and pout for the cameras. it’s called class.

        • Hannah November 12, 2010 at 2:49 pm #

          Totally. I wouldn’t say emma was classless, but slightly desperate. What she wore, and has been wearing recently has seemed like such a facade.
          I think that who the star is at a premiere is regardless, and that frankly anyone can dress how they want to. I just don’t really get the relevancy of that.
          I also adore Clemence’s graceful insouiance.
          Regarding the ‘cough/ cof’ thing, I am pretty sure it was intended to be written that way.
          Now lets all calm down and appreciate the look 🙂

          • Fashion Critic November 12, 2010 at 3:04 pm #

            yes I agree lets talk fashion

        • Karen November 12, 2010 at 2:49 pm #

          LOL! Jealousy!! shes not the big star of the HP movies!Emma ‘s a bigger star than clemence! sorry to say, but its the tue!! LOLLL hard

        • Anna November 12, 2010 at 3:24 pm #

          whats the problem with poses on the red carpet?

  31. fashion-mommy November 12, 2010 at 10:32 am #

    she has that french air of not having to try too hard, a lot like Vanessa Paradis. I love her in this dress and I think she is beautiful.

    • Linda November 12, 2010 at 2:29 pm #

      Totally. I love the dark hair too. Normally I’m not a big fan of Chanel dresses, but she looks so graceful and effortless, as you say.

      • Linda November 12, 2010 at 2:29 pm #

        And BDOTW worthy! 🙂

  32. Naomi November 12, 2010 at 10:08 am #

    She looks great, although a teeny-tiny splash of color on her lips would’ve added a lot.

  33. Ann November 12, 2010 at 9:50 am #

    It is a clutch actually. It’s by Olympia Le Tan.

    • Fashion Critic November 12, 2010 at 9:56 am #

      thanks for the confirmation. I was searching for it as a clutch everywhere and couldn’t find it.

      • Ann November 12, 2010 at 10:13 am #

        No problem, glad I could help.

  34. Ayesha November 12, 2010 at 9:47 am #

    err……..i don’t think this look works for me at all,i am a huge fan of Chanel,it looks great on the runway,could’ve looked good here too but i just can’t like it.
