Emma Watson wore a shoulder-bearing Emilia Wickstead gown seemingly straight out a fairy tale for the Beauty and the Beast premiere.


Watson and her co-star Dan Stevens looked radiant on the red carpet as they promoted their live action retelling of the classic Disney film. Watson, 26, shined in the light blue gown, complete with cape and long train. The star kept her accessories simple and had her hair up in a braid.

Stevens, for his part, looked particularly dashing in a classic navy blue suit. The Downton Abbey star plays the Beast in the film. Other stars at the premiere were Josh GadLuke EvansIan McKellanStanley Tucci and Emma Thompson.

Watson recently opened up about her qualms with playing Belle, as she exhibited signs of Stockholm Syndrome. Later, though, she realized this was not the case. “She has none of the characteristics of someone with Stockholm syndrome because she keeps her independence; she keeps that freedom of thought,” the actress explained. “I also think there is a very intentional switch where, in my mind, Belle decides to stay. She’s giving him hell. There is no sense of ‘I need to kill this guy with kindness,’ or any sense that she deserves this.”

Beauty and the Beast comes out in theaters on March 17.
