Last Sunday, Emma Watson, the 33-year-old actress, British photo model and women’s rights activist, attended the London premiere of the documentary We Dare to Dream. Watson’s public appearance is rare but apt: this evening she favoured a black jacket from Alexander McQueen.
The jacket was cinched at the waist, creating an elegant deep neckline, which was topped with a pattern on the right shoulder. Emma chose to pair the spectacular top with black trousers and crystal-embellished heeled shoes. To emphasise the spectacular neckline, Emma wore a black bodice with small design elements in the form of braids under the jacket. The actress completed the glamorous look with make-up: black eyeliner, branded eyebrows and bright red lipstick. Her hair was tidied up in a careless low ponytail. The actress was accompanied on the red carpet by Pakistani women’s rights activist Malala Yousufzai and director Waad Al-Kateab, as well as producer Joe Gebbia.
The film is based on the book “We Dare to Dream”, which is about the hardships faced by refugee athletes at the Olympic Games. The film follows five athletes from Syria, Cameroon, South Sudan and Iran as they compete together as part of the refugee team at the 2020 Olympic Games.
At the premiere, Emma took the microphone to give a speech:
‘It was so enjoyable to watch and it was so inspiring,’ she began. – The Paris Olympics will take place a year from now. What can people who watch this film do who want to support the people who will be competing and who have a much harder time at the games than anyone else?’
Watson was interested in the documentary because she has been a UN Goodwill Ambassador since 2014.
