We recently spotted the always lady-like and precisely put together Emma Watson in an amazing spring outfit that just begged for a Style Stalker breakdown. Normally we're keen on "stalking" street style looks, but figured we'd make an exception as Watson wore one of the season's must-have looks to the Vanity Fair Portraits: Photographs 1913-2008 party at London's National Portrait Gallery.
Clad in an oversized blazer, as well as a pale nude chiffon dress and studded belt from Burberry Prorsum's S/S 08 collection, Watson showed off her sophisticated taste in clothes and provided some excellent outfit inspiration (can you believe she's only 17?). While much of said collection is not yet available-it is early in the season still, dear readers-it's quite possible to put your own version of Watson's look together with items that are currently in stores.
1. Topshop Big Oversized Blazer ($90)
There are many oversized blazers available now (from Alexander Wang and Built By Wendy, to name two), but this one from Topshop is simply perfect for Watson's outfit. This black jacket also is machine washable, just in case you were wondering.
2. BCBG Satin Dress ($288)
The similar halter neckline and pale champagne color struck us as being quite Burberry-like. The small, tiered ruffles add texture to the simple shape and strike the exact feminine note as Watson's frock.
3. C Piu' C Belt ($140)
Undoubtedly the new line of Burberry Prorsum accessories are going to make a huge splash this season, especially the "medal studs" found on their bags and belts. If waiting lists aren't for you, perhaps this black leather and metal detail belt will fit the bill?
4. Benefit Cosmetics benetint ($28)
Surely English roses get a bloom in their cheeks naturally, but for the rest of us who don't have quite that complexion there's always Benetint. The lip/cheek tint is sheer enough that even our fairest readers can wear it and it's ultra long lasting, which is good for everyone!
5. Via Spiga Baffle Heels ($201.95)
We knew we needed a t-strap sandal to get Watson's look and this pair from Via Spiga have the same sexy vibe and high (3.5 inches) heel. If you'd like a slightly tougher shoe with thicker straps and a bolder buckle, we'd like to suggest the Max Studio Xaria ($152.95). And finally, for those of our readers who prefer flats, check out Jill Stuart's Falvie II Patent Sandals for another version of the look.
