Emma Watson’s Red-Carpet Style Is All About B&W

We can’t really talk about last night’s New York premiere of “Gravity” without also talking about the film’s terrifying premise, a.k.a. astronauts floating untethered through the indifferent blackness of space after a catastrophic space shuttle accident, a.k.a. we cannot think about this even a second longer or we’re going to start actually screaming. So instead, let’s talk about Emma Watson! And how she’s been showing up lately in a variety of beautiful, basic black-and-white looks for red carpet events! (Astronauts? What astronauts?)

Emma isn’t actually in “Gravity”—her appearance at the premiere was likely a show of support for director Alfonso CuarĂ³n, who also helmed the third “Harry Potter” movie—but she was downright eye-catching in a white minidress with a tiered skirt and lots of shoulder exposure, paired with metallic pumps and some deep, dark lipstick. Very glam, very sexy…and yet almost demure in comparison to her belly-baring look at the GQ Men of the Year Awards a month ago, where the actress sported a pair of high-waisted black trousers and a cheeky bolero bandeau top in a lovely shade of ivory. And before that? It was an understated black silk dress with a plunge neckline for the “Bling Ring” premiere, along with chic striped pumps and ravishing red lips.

Could this run of black-and-white looks be the first signs that Emma is adopting a high-contrast signature style? Or is she just not feeling colorful these days? Discuss!

What do you think of Emma’s love affair with black-and-white style?
