In “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” Emma Watson’s character is a master of levitation. Though, even Hermione Granger might not be able to solve the mystery of Emma Watson’s floating dress posted to advertise Renais, the French-inspired gin brand she recently launched with her brother.
The 33-year-old actor posted a picture of herself wearing a light-blue frock that appears to be magically levitating in the air. She smiles alongside her brother, Alex Watson, while wearing the dress, which seems to be floating in the air at three jagged points along the neckline. Because of this picture, the internet has been losing its collective mind trying to figure out how this is possible.
This hovering gown was from the Spanish fashion house Loewe’s Spring/Summer Women’s Collection.
Many had theories as to what was creating the illusion. Some wondered if the fabric was hanging from Watson’s ears or if a special kind of wiring was holding the fabric in place.
According to an analysis by Kelsey Stewart for the Zoe Report fashion blog, the Loewe dress features draped fabric and has structured wiring underneath the bodice, which creates the illusion of a floating effect.
Because of the launching of Renais, Emma Watson hasn’t been acting for the last few years. She doesn’t like the idea of business and advertising, so she wants to continue her acting career again and she is certain of that.
“I wasn’t very happy if I’m being honest. I felt a bit caged. The thing I found really hard was that I had to go out and sell something that I really didn’t have very much control over.” Watson said of the business experience. “I love what I do it’s finding a way to do it where I don’t have to fracture myself into different faces and people. And I just don’t want to switch into robot mode anymore. Does that make sense?” She added.
The posts Emma Watson posted have been very fascinating, just like the levitating dress she wore while making the Renais gin brand. Even though she said she will definitely start acting again, making Renais has been an exciting journey for her and her followers.
