Emma has been around in the media loads recently what with the new Harry Potter film and those infamous Burberry ads and I have to say she's growing on me. It's not that I disliked her before just that I'm not a massive Harry Potter fan (unlike he other half of this blog :P) and that her style is not really mine. But she does dress well and I really like this outfit. She's really made this Christopher Cane dress work; I like the way she hasn't just copied the entire catwalk look but has kept the look clean and hasn't tried to make it too individual and overdone things. The dress remains the centre of the look which is important with such a statement item. The tassles on the clutch also add to the outfit. Understated and exciting. Perfect.
This outfit I'm not so keen on however. The dress suits Emma's style well - it's young but also simple and chic. It isn't something I would wear but I like it on her. But what I don't like in this outfit are the Brogues. I think that in general they have become a bit tired and overdone and I think they do not suit this look or Emma. They look akward on her, they're sort of too big and clumpy.
We also didn't think much of the styling in Emma's ELLE uk shoot - a little "middle aged" (said my Harry-potter-fan-blog-partner of the below picture). It could have been so much more inspired...
