Can Someone Teach Emma Watson The Spell For Going Back In Time And Choosing A Different Outfit?

When I grow up I want to be Emma Watson.  Not only is she a brilliant wizard with a knack for dressing beautifully, but she's also a super classy lady. Why, I bet she always remembers to say “excuse me, where the ladies room” instead of ” yo, I have to pee, is there a bathroom here?” Odds are also high that she's enough of a lady to hide her disdain behind a napkin when someone makes an announcement at brunch that she's thinking of going gluten-free. In fact, I'll even go as far as to say that she's enough of a lady that she wouldn't ever consider pulling a power CC at work.

All of this classy ladyness is why I'm so disappointed by her outfit choice last night at the 2013 GQ Men of the Year Awards. I get that she's trying to do something edgy. But there are literally just too many edges on it to make it work. It's as if she started to grow a nice blouse and then decided a third of the way through that she didn't want it. Also, not to go all Kyle XY on you guys, but where art thou bellybutton?

With all that said, I'm no fashionista ladies. I'm writing this from the comfort of a onesie with a butt flap. (I know, I know, Emma Watson would never say butt). You can tell me if I'm totally off base with this critique. Just do it like Emma Watson would — with class and dignity and backhanded compliments that take a full day for me to process.
