Emma Watson experienced a bit of a wardrobe malfunction during the red carpet Los Angeles premiere of The Perks of Being a Wallflower, according to The Huffington Post. Fortunately for Watson, her stylist had prepared for such a mishap, planting strategically-placed covers over certain parts of her body to prevent potential embarrassment.
The International Business Times reports that the gown, which was designed by Giorgio Armani, was a bit too loose for its own good. Most people won’t argue that Emma Watson looked stunning on the red carpet, so it’s rather unfortunate that this is what we’re choosing to focus on. With outfits like this, dress malfunctions are going to happen. Hence, the nipples covers.
Of course, the Los Angeles premiere of Perks of Being a Wallflower wasn’t attended by Watson and her revealing attire alone. Ezra Miller also showed up for the screening, a cardboard cut-out of star Logan Lerman in tow. According to the Los Angeles Times, the lead was busy promoting the coming-of-age drama at the Toronto International Film Festival.
Brad Brevet at Ropes of Silicon caught the film during its Canadian showing and delivered an extremely positive review on the website. Here’s an excerpt:
“Audiences that see this film are going to love it and hopefully Summit can manage to get them into the theaters without thinking they’re in store for just another teen high school tragedy. This is so much more than anything generic that you’ve seen before. Chbosky knew exactly what he was doing and never overstates his message. He keeps you locked in throughout the entire film and by the year’s end I’m sure I’ll be talking about it again.”
Although Emma Watson’s wardrobe malfunction will be hot news for a few days, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, meanwhile, is apparently shaping up to be a critical darling this holiday season. The film opens in limited release in the US on September 21. If you’re dying to see pictures of the aforementioned red carpet mishap, swing by The Huffington Post.
