Emma Watson dazzled at the 'The Bling Ring' premiere at the Cannes Film Festival yesterday (16.05.13).

The 23-year-old actress opted for a stunning Chanel couture dress from their Spring 2013 collection, which featured a black sparkling bodice highlighting her petite waist, while the bottom of her gown flowed in a wave of off-white silk.

As she posed for the cameras with her co-stars Katie Chang, Taissa Farmiga and Claire Julien, the British star revealed her toned back in the dress, drawing attention to her trim physique.

An added touch to the ensemble were three silver ear cuffs, which Emma appeared to have chosen as a tribute to the film, and she sported her hair in a loose bun.

Her classic fashion choice comes after she showed off her legs earlier that day during the movie's photocall.

The brunette beauty wore a short maroon two-piece by British designer Christopher Kane which highlighted her slim midriff while also looking simple and elegant.

The actress wasn't the only one making a fashion statement during the film festivities.

Director Sofia Coppola, who joined her cast members on the red carpet, hosted an after party for the film with French fashion house Louis Vuitton at Le Club by Albane's.

She has worn the label several times since arriving in Cannes and has been close to the brand's creative director Marc Jacobs ever since after the pair met at a Perry Ellis show when she was a teenager.

Jacobs - who previously described Sofia as ''young and sweet and innocent and beautiful... the epitome of this girl I fantasize of'' - asked the filmmaker to create a capsule collection in 2012 of Louis Vuitton clutch bags, reinforcing their friendship.
