Emma Watson’s BAFTA look proves this Y2K beauty trend is making a comeback
Emma Watson’s BAFTA look featured an appearance from a noughties beauty staple—and we love to see it coming back
Emma Watson’s BAFTA appearance truly gave us everything, from a powerful show of solidarity with the Trans community, to a dreamy monochrome red carpet gown. But it was her Y2K-inspired hairstyle that really made the night.
Staying true to her millennial roots, Emma truly nailed one of our favorite Y2K beauty trends, as she stepped out onto the red carpet with her hair slicked back in a middle parting embellished by a dozen or so simple bobby pins—the ultimate noughties throwback.
The front strands of her ‘expensive brunette’ hair were pushed back with seven bobby pins on either side, while the rest of her locks featured subtle water waves, creating the perfect chic but lowkey hair look. This look reminds us of the classic noughties trend of using colorful but classy clips—and it’s so easy to recreate! We're thinking it might be time to check down the side of the sofa for all of those long lost bobby pins of the last decade...
Emma nailed the rest of her look too, keeping her makeup minimal with a bronzy, sun-kissed base, letting her bold and perfectly feathered brows shine. She walked the red carpet in a dreamy black and white ballet style dress, which featured a velvet halter top, and white tulle skirt—and she accessorized with a beaut pair of diamond waterfall earrings.
But while her look captured all of our attention, Emma’s BAFTA speech also got everyone talking too—for all the right reasons!
Emma Watson's BAFTA speech: What did she say about JK Rowling?
Emma, who recently gave us all the feels at the Harry Potter reunion, took to the stage to present the award for Outstanding British Film and used the moment to voice her solidarity with the Trans community.
Fans have praised her words and applauded her dig at author JK Rowling, who has come under fire for her comments about trans people.
BAFTA host Rebel Wilson introduced her by saying: “Here to present the next award is Emma Watson. She calls herself a feminist, but we all know she’s a witch.”
Emma then said as she reached the podium: “I'm here for all the witches.”
Fans were over the moon by her powerful statement, with one tweeting: “Emma Watson is a queen for this.”

Another wrote: “Emma Watson states clearly that she represents *all witches* as she presents at the #Eebaftas #JKDoesntSpeakForMe”

And a third added: “Emma Watson’s “I’m here for *all* of the witches, by the way” was a giant dig at JK and I love her for it #BAFTAs.”
