Emma Watson has raised eyebrows for the second time this week about her ensemble choice, after she opted for a bold two-piece Emilia Wickstead set to interview politician and environmentalist Al Gore.
The actress, 31, interviewed Al Gore about climate change, opting for a cropped floral top and matching skirt made from scrap fabric from the designer’s 2022 resort collection.
But the two-piece ensemble — which was handmade in London with leftover fabrics — was divided, with some followers asking “where the rest” was.
Emma Watson has raised eyebrows for the second time this week over her ensemble choice, after she opted for a bold two-piece Emilia Wickstead set to interview politician and environmentalist Al Gore.
But the two-piece ensemble divided opinion, with some followers asking ‘where the rest of it was
One fan joked, ‘Where’s the rest of the top?’, while another said, ‘Looks like there wasn’t enough.’
Elsewhere people asked: ‘weren’t you cold?’ And one said, “It’s cute, but I think they could have put a little more in that shirt — unnecessarily breezy.”
But many followers complimented the look, with one writing, “I love that it’s made from leftover materials.”
Another said: ‘You look so beautiful!’, while one added: ‘You’re killing it!’.
Emma shared her admiration for Al Gore, the former Vice President of the United States who lost to George W. Bush in a very close race after a Florida recount.
The actress, 31, interviewed Al Gore about climate change, opting for a cropped floral top and matching skirt made from leftover materials from the designer’s 2022 resort collection.
She posted a video of their interview on climate change, writing, “It was really surreal meeting and interviewing one of my idols. I think one of the many reasons I find Al Gore so compelling is that – even though he lost one of the biggest fights of his life to become president in 2000 (by such an unbearably small margin…) he is working. that he began to do despite humiliation, loss and defeat… the tides have been against him for years and he has continued to swim.
‘That’s a hero to me. Fortunately, climate change action is becoming mainstream and the tides have turned in his direction and now we are all swimming with him. uh xx’.
She then added to her dress: ‘Thank you to the most beautiful Emilia for creating this beautiful bespoke piece. It is handmade in London with leftover fabrics made up of 62% recycled yarn that is locally sourced, woven and printed in Italy. I will wear this a lot!!’.

Earlier this week, Emma (left) divided opinion with her recycled Earthshot prize outfit – with one even joking that she wore the other half of Formula 1 driver Lewis Hamilton’s 2021 Met Gala outfit, where he had a lace net skirt over his suit wore (right)

Earlier this week, Emma was ridiculed by social media users for her bizarre Earthshot prize ensemble that consisted of 10 vintage Oxfam dresses.
The Harry Potter star wore a very quirky white tulle backless dress worn over flared black trousers on the green carpet as she attended Prince William’s inaugural awards ceremony at London’s Alexandra Palace on Sunday.
The Harry Potter star’s outfit, which was… designed by gender-fluid fashion designer Harris Reed, it caused a stir online — with one even joking that she wore the other half of Formula 1 driver Lewis Hamilton’s 2021 Met Gala outfit, where he wore a lace net skirt over his suit.
“So there went the rest of Lewis Hamilton’s Met Gala outfit!” one joked, while a second said: ‘Emma Watson’s outfit is very ‘in your nightgown and I remember it’s garbage night so I put on the closest pair of pants’.

Sticking to the environmental theme, Emma paired her ensemble with black chunky boots and adorned with stylish gold rings.
She kept her ‘bronde’ bob slicked back and showed a dangling gold and pearl earring.
The floral lace detail frames her bare back and adds a feminine touch to her gorgeous ensemble – but not everyone was convinced by the unusual combination of dress and trousers.
“Wtf is Emma Watson wearing?” one wrote, while a second wrote, “Watching #Earthshot also makes you wonder if Emma Watson wasn’t sure what to wear, so she went with both?”

A third added: “I’m not a fan of it. Not at all. Emma has been working on sustainable fashion for years, but this is not it. She has already worn some nice outfits. I don’t know what happened here.’
Elsewhere, a fourth commented, “You guys, I’m sorry, but what kind of fashion disaster is this? What’s your take on the outfit she wore for the #EarthshotPrize’, while another wrote: ‘I don’t understand this outfit at all. Did someone take scraps from the craft room and sew them together?’
Meanwhile, others expressed concern about possible wasted material.
‘If this dress was made from 10 Oxfam outfits, what happened to all the waste? I hope it didn’t go to landfill or beat the object!’ noticed one.
Some had very different opinions and praised the creativity behind Emma’s outfit (pictured)
A second asked: ‘I love that Emma Watson had to use TEN wedding dresses to make just one outfit for these awards! Talking about material waste’
However, a select few had widely differing opinions and praised the creativity behind Emma’s outfit.
“I love Emma Watson’s outfit. Absolutely love it. There’s no question that Dior, Chanel or anything like that is so totally out of my reach, but it’s divine,” one wrote.
A second wrote: ‘Emma Watson looks absolutely phenomenal!’ while a third added, “Beautiful.”
