Fashion-forward Emma Watson is a Burberry beauty as she dazzles at pre-BAFTA bash in £1,700 coat




Power players: Emma Watson partied until 3am at Mahiki nightclub in a fashion-forward Burberry trench coat after attending Harvey Weinstein's pre-BAFTA bash last night

She may not be the face of Burberry anymore, but Emma Watson showed her loyalty to them remains last night by stepping out in the luxury label.

The Harry Potter star looked gorgeous in a new take on the brand's iconic trench coat.

The 20-year-old attended a pre-BAFTA Awards party thrown by movie mogul Harvey Weinstein at Almada bar and restaurant in Mayfair wearing a £1,700 Burberry Prorsum trench coat with eye-catching leather sleeves.

The party was in honour of Colin Firth and The King's Speech, the runaway success of this year's awards season, which The Weinstein Company produced.

The party continued well into the early hours, with Emma arriving at nearby Mahiki nightclub in the film chief's Rolls Royce.

When they were accosted by eager autograph-hunters in between parties, Weinstein jumped in to chivalrously guide Emma through the crowd.

For Firth and many of his fellow revellers, who included flame-haired Mad Men star Christina Hendricks (in a stunning low-cut floral print silk gown), it was the start of a party-packed weekend in the run-up to Sunday's BAFTA Awards.
