The Beauty and the Beast star was a modern-day Belle in this statement Oscar de la Renta jumpsuit, just-bitten lip and textured updo courtesy of hairstylist Adir Abergel, who swept deconstructed braids into a loose, low chignon which he accessorized with seven Quill Bobbi pins from his new collection with Lelet NY.
