Rising from the ashes, we’re back (and so is Emma)! We apologize for the lack of updates lately, both our lives have been quite busy and we might have taken a bit advantage of the fact Emma has been on the down-low as well. However we’re back and will be working on keeping our gallery up to date, so be sure to check it out and follow us on Twitter to not miss out on any update (our Twitter also got suspended, so there’s that too).

Back to the regular schedule – Emma attended last night the EE British Academy Film Awards, wearing a beautiful halter dress with a plunging neckline. She took the stage to present the award for Best Outstanding British Film (Kenneth Branaugh’s Belfast won) but not before responding to Rebel Wilson’s introduction (“She’s proud to call herself a feminist, but we all know she’s a witch.”) by stating “I’m here for all of the witches.”

Additionally to photos from the award ceremony, we’ve also updated our gallery with parties that Emma attended before and after the EE British Academy Film Awards. Enjoy!

Emma attended earlier this week The Earthshot Prize, in London. This event marks the first time Emma has been out in public – since the “Little Women” World Premiere back in 2019. More news awaits us as her Instagram has been taken over by an anonymous Feminist Collective for Cop26, and below you’ll also be able to find the transcript from the Instagram post on The Earthshot Prize!


Taking inspiration from President John F. Kennedy’s Moonshot, this new environmental prize aims to incentivize change and help repair the planet. The awards are centered around five ‘Earthshots’ – goals to improve life for generations to come. The winners of the Fix Our Climate award was the Enapter team behind the AEM Electrolyser, which turns renewable electricity into emission-free hydrogen gas, heats homes, and fuels essential industries. Enapter was co-founded by the formidable Vaitea Cowan, who experienced the impacts of climate change first-hand growing up on a Pacific Island. She believes green hydrogen can change the way we power our world. Her personal mission is protecting her family by providing clean energy independence to Polynesia and beyond. As Vaitea says, “The world needs many solutions to fight climate change. Our biggest enemy is time.”

Hopefully these awards will help take these solutions to scale – and fast. Thank you to ALL the innovators, activists, academics, and advocates for educating us. Whether that be through resisting corporate greenwashing and land grabbing, or inventing technologies to safeguard the survival of species across the world, (including our own) your work is unbelievably important.

Extra special love and appreciation to the kindest @harris_reed and team. We LOVE you! Your push for gender fluidity and acceptance is beautiful, vibrant, and vital. Your goal to make fashion less harmful is so inspiring. 🌎🌍🌏

Emma was dressed in an up-cycled wedding dress from the FOUND collection created in partnership with @oxfamgb Props to all the crew ensuring this was a carbon neutral production and broadcast, with a zero waste to landfill approach, including set design and staging. #EarthshotLondon2021🌍

The world took a turn the day George Floyd was murdered by a police officer, in the United States. No more would we accept police violence against black people. Black Lives Matter, and for white people that means educating ourselves on the black community and their history. You can do it by watching documentaries, television series, listening to podcasts, and by reading books. It’s not a secret that Emma Watson is a bookworm, having her own book club. As Emma posts on her Instagram account many ways we can help – through petitions, donations, supporting businesses owned by black people, she also shares how we can educate ourselves, become better allies and help on the fight against racism. Vogue UK has published an article, taken from Emma’s book recommendations post, with information on each of the books mentioned. You can learn about them below.

In a bid to encourage people to educate themselves about systemic racism, Emma Watson has shared her current reading list on Instagram. After acknowledging the ways in which she, as a white person, has benefited from white supremacy in an earlier statement on social media, the actor encouraged her 57 million followers to join her in picking up books by authors including Ta-Nehisi Coates and David Olusoga.

“Self-education is an essential part of any anti-racist journey, and reading has always been a huge part of my personal learning,” Watson wrote, along side a painting by Natalie Lauren Sims. “In 2016, I started @oursharedshelf, a bookclub to create conversations around intersectionality, feminism and equal rights and to profile feminist writers,” she continued. “Many of the writers and books we featured over the years are relevant to anyone wanting to understand that the struggle for racial justice has been a long one, that ALL Black Lives Matter and women’s voices are a vital part of any movement for change. Alice Walker, Bell Hooks, Maya Angelou, Roxane Gay, Reni Eddo-Lodge, Angie Thomas, Audre Lorde, Brittney Cooper, and Toni Morrison are just some of the authors we featured and which I urge you to check out if you haven’t already.⁣”

More recently, Watson has been working her way through multiple reads by people of colour. “I hope you’ll pick these up and read along with me,” she wrote.

Here, British Vogue takes a closer look at her educational reading list.

The Wretched of the Earth by Frantz Fanon⁣
Published in 1961 by psychiatrist Frantz Fanon, The Wretched of the Earth made him the leading anti-colonialist thinker of the 20th Century. Writing about the trauma of colonisation, Fanon’s text inspired anti-colonial movements thanks to its analysis of race, violence, class and culture in a fight for freedom.

We Were Eight Years in Power by Ta-Nehisi Coates
Published in 2018, ⁣Coates’s book is essential reading in understanding race in America today. We Were Eight Years in Power looks at Barack Obama’s presidency and Trump’s thereafter, by delving into the Black Lives Matter movement and the rise of white supremacy.
