Emma Watson Goes For Casual Chic At ‘Bling Ring’ Cannes Photocall

Emma Watson At Met Gala
Emma Watson hits the red carpet at 2013 Met Ball.
Actress Emma Watson attended The Bling Ring photocall during the 66th Annual Cannes Film Festival at Palais des Festival this morning (May 16, 2013) in Cannes, France and was joined by her costars Israel Broussard, Claire Julien, Taissa Fariga, Katie Chang and director Sophia Coppola.

Emma wore a matching burgundy top and skirt by Christopher Kane and a pair of black suede heels, with her hair pulled back in sleek do.

As for her racy role, Emma said, “It wasn’t like I needed to go out there and try to find the furthest part from Hermione so I could get away from her. That seems like a negative place to jump off from; trying to get away from something rather than trying to get towards something.” 

The Bling Ring premiered at the festival on Thursday, with critics already having their say on a movie that is deemed to have serious awards potential on paper. The Independent said Coppola has ultimately succeeded in re-telling the story of a group of Los Angeles cool kids who robbed the homes of Paris Hilton, Rachel Bilson and Audrina Patridge.
