Emma Watson Makes The Case For Trainers As Eveningwear

Emma Watson is making some bold sartorial statements during her press tour for Beauty and the Beast. Not only is she only wearing sustainable fashion - as documented on her new Instagram account - and wearing jaw-droppingly gorgeous princess-esque gowns - but she's also made a strong case for trainers as eveningwear. Ish.

The star stepped out at the Shanghai press conference for the film wearing a chic black one-shouldered ensemble teamed with noneother than box-fresh white trainers by sustainable brand Good Guys Don't Wear Leather. She's previously worn the brand during the Paris section of the tour.

The fashion world has been a fan of the so-called 'fashion trainer' for some time now, with designers from Gucci to Balenciaga all showcasing sneaker styles, but it is strangely taking Hollywood some time to catch up. Most starlets stick to a tried-and-tested formula of glam dress + tottering heels, so it's refreshing to see Watson doing something different.

Not since Kristen Stewart wore trainers to every single Twilight Saga red carpet (OK, we might be exaggerating) has a Hollywood actress done so much to promote comfy-yet-cool footwear.
