    Emma didn't miss the opportunity to dress for the cause, wearing a tunic that was made from 10 recycled wedding dresses. And, wow, it's a moment.

    Emma's tunic was provided to her by Oxfam, a group of organizations that aim to alleviate global poverty, according to the Evening Standard. Meanwhile, Kate re-wore an Alexander McQueen dress that fans recognized from a different event she attended in 2011.

    Outside of this appearance, Emma has been laying low for the past two years. The actor and advocate was last photographed on the red carpet at the premiere of Little Women in December of 2019.

    Even though her hiatus has coincided with the pandemic, rumors circulated earlier this year that Emma is retiring from acting.

    In February, the Daily Mail published an article claiming she had gone "dormant" and "given up acting" to focus on her relationship.

    Emma made a rare social media appearance to debunk that though, posting a lengthy message on Instagram that clarified she has no plans to retire at all.

    "Rumours about whether I'm engaged or not, or whether my career is 'dormant or not' are ways to create clicks each time they are revealed to be true or untrue...If I have news — I promise I'll share it with you," she wrote.

    It's so good to see Emma back on the red carpet! Hopefully 2022 will bring a lot more of her.
