Emma Watson Makes Rare Red Carpet Appearance Wearing Upcycled Wedding Gowns

Emma Watson made her first red carpet appearance in two years over the weekend. On Sunday, the actress attended the inaugural Earthshot Prize Awards held in London.

At the event, which celebrated the environmental program founded by Prince William and Sir David Attenborough to help inspire solutions for climate change and sustainability, Watson fittingly presented the Fix Our Climate award.

The “Harry Potter” star has been an ardent advocate for sustainable fashion. Just last year, it was announced that French luxury group Kering had tapped Watson to be on its board of directors, while also appointing her chair of the sustainability committee.

It’s no surprise that for the occasion Watson wore an eco-friendly design by Harris Reed in the form upcycled wedding gowns. Her look featured a demi-couture gown from his spring ’22 collection, which was created with clothes that had been donated to Oxfam, a non-profit fighting global poverty. Watson completed the ensemle with flared black trousers by Harris Reed, paired with dramatic lug sole black boots and jewelry from Reed’s Missoma collaboration.
