To be honest, Emma Watson has never really impressed me as an actress. I love the Harry Potter books but I feel that the harry-ron-hermione acting in the film franchise is sub-standard. I love Snape though.
BUT... I have to admit she looked stunning at the Costume Institute Gala (albeit a bit weirdly bronzed-californian rather than the interesting-and-pale english rose that we're used to.)
I'm not digging the shoes but the dress (custom made Burberry by her escort Christopher Bailey), in my opinion, is just the right combination of sexy and youthful. I think I like it because it reminds me of a one-shouldered Kate Moss for Topshop dress that I bought from her first collection (the only good one.. sigh). But I love the ruffle detail and I actually like the slit and the length. It just works for me, somehow. I want that dress! (If you're listening, Chris).
What do you all think?
Her make up was also lovely and glowing and her hair looked really pretty.
Penny for your thoughts: How do I get subtle waves/curls like this in my shoulder length hair?? Curling irons just make my hair go into little pig-tail curls (and I mean literal pig tails. Like the curly fleshy things at the end of pigs) that look less wavy-goddess and more street-corner-chic.
I just bought a Babyliss pro conical wand on the advice of the gorgeous Tanya of pixi2woo, but I bought it in the biggest barrel size (19-32mm) because I can't stand tight little curls. I tried curling my hair today and well, the barrel is kind of big for my shoulder length hair. Fail.
Does anyone else have this conical curling wand or just a conical wand in any other brand? Any tips for making it work? I guess maybe I should have just gone with the smaller barrel, huh.
