Everyone knows her as the cherubic know-it-all Hermione Granger from the hugely popular Harry Potter series. Which is why Emma Watson is barely recognisable these days as she dons couture and steps out as a glamorous young woman.
Curly haired Emma, now 18, has become more and more stylish. At the premiere of her new animated film, The Tale of Despereaux, in Hollywood this week, Emma's blue satin dress and a pair of peep-toe black heels revealed why the English beauty has been signed by Kate Moss’s modelling agency ‘Storm’.
As Daily Mail reported, “The 18-year-old, who plans to go to university next year, had a big smile for the camera as she arrived at the premiere.”
Emma has been on the cover of Vogue and last summer was a fixture at both London and Paris Fashion Week. It was earlier reported in Daily Mail that she has been keen to distance herself from her schoolgirl character. And judging by the elegant attire she wears and a slick red lipstick which replaced her old shabby attire, the A-level student is coming of age at a rapid pace.
Reports are also buzzing that she has now cut a 2-year deal to be the new face of Chanel's Coco Mademoiselle for a cool $6 million. She'll replace current Coco girl Keira Knightley, whose contract ends this year. 'Chanel has been "slowly integrating" Watson into the brand, dressing her for recent premieres and parties to make sure she's the one', a report said. It seems like Watson is here to become a fashion icon.
