Emma Watson did warn us all that she had a selection of stunning outfits for Cannes on Twitter earlier this month, and boy was she right. The 23-year-old attended the photo-call for Sofia Coppola's new movie The Bling Ring on Thursday (May 16, 2013) in a flashy Christopher Kane ensemble.

The former Harry Potter actress flashed her midriff in a matching crop top and above the knee skirt with feather detailing. The maroon color perfectly complimented Watson's complexion and her sophisticated court shoes finished off the whole outfit. Earlier in the day, Emma was seen wearing a classic beige trench coat as she made her way to the photo-call - this despite the blazing Cannes heat.

'The Bling Ring' premiered at the festival on Thursday, with critics already having their say on a movie that is deemed to have serious awards potential on paper. The Independent said Coppola has ultimately succeeded in re-telling the story of a group of Los Angeles cool kids who robbed the homes of Paris Hilton, Rachel Bilson and Audrina Patridge, "Director Sofia Coppola delivers a wily critique of celebrity culture in The Bling Ring as she dresses up the true story of Los Angeles teenagers robbing their Hollywood idols' homes," said writer Kaleem Aftab. Variety's Scott Foundas said, "Though it lacks the name cast and self-consciously outre style of another recent girls-gone-wild opus, "Spring Breakers," this lively and fascinating pic should score well with its target hipster demo."

Todd McCarthy over at the Hollywood Reporter gave the movie a lukewarm review, saying, "Shot in a gliding, gently intoxicating style that lightly suggests that this "based on actual events" story could be taking place in a dream (or, more to the point, an altered state), this is a too-cool-for-school portrait of spoiled kids achieving dubious but welcome fame for robbing the homes of young Hollywood celebrities."
