Emma Watson made a comeback on the red carpet last night, attending the Earthshot Prize ceremony in London, which was hosted by The Duke of Cambridge and the Royal Foundation. For the occasion – which is a new annual global award designed to inspire change and help fix our planet over the next 10 years – Watson, who is a known advocate for sustainable fashion and presented an award at the event , chose a recycled dress.
The dress was designed and created by Harris Reed, who made the dress using old wedding dresses, which had been donated to Oxfam.
Although the design was tailor-made for Watson, the concept was similar to Reed’s Spring / Summer 2022 collection, where the pieces were almost entirely made from second-hand wedding dresses. With these models, Reed played with a consortium of extravagant fabrics, where they undid the seams, meticulously reconstructed garments with Reed’s signature, and repurposed lace bridal veils and morning jackets.
Watson’s ensemble consisted of a sparkling, white, asymmetrical top, which featured delicate lace details across the top and was almost completely backless. She paired the look with black flared pants and beautiful pieces from Reed’s collaboration with jewelry brand Missoma.
Reed took to Instagram to share his excitement for Watson’s look, calling it a “huge honor” to dress the actress.

Watson joined a number of royals at the event, including the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, who also opted for sustainable evening wear.
William wore a recycled velvet jacket, while Kate opted to wear a lilac Alexander McQueen dress that she has seen several times, rather than going for something new. She first wore the dress 10 years ago, at a BAFTA black tie event in the summer of 2011, and just gave it a little update last night in the form of her accessories.
