Actress Emma Watson who's played Hermione Granger in all 8 Harry Potter films has come along way from her innocent character and is becoming noticed more as a style icon now than ever before.
So from school to Harry Potter to a celebrity starlet, let's see where her iconic status has come from.
Q: Where did she begin?
A: Emma Watson started off life as a normal school girl who enjoyed acting and loved being in school plays. She wanted to act since she was young and went to the part time Stagecoach Theatre Arts school in Oxford. As soon as casting started, to seek out a talented youngster to play Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter films, Emma hit our screen. She was cast to play the young witch when she was just nine years old and from 2001 she's been in our cinemas with Daniel and Rupert and creating a house hold name for herself. Her first film, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone bagged her the Youth Artist Award for Leading Young Actress. After making it big in J.K Rowlings best selling collection, she moved onto smaller projects like BBC Film Ballet Shoes, and also tried her hand at voicing animation in the Universal Pictures Film The Tale of Despereaux. A few years on and she's still known to most of us as young Hermione Granger, but the 21 year old is now a fashion icon just as much as she is an actress. Her modelling career is starting to spread after her debut model shoot for Burberry's autumn/winter collection back in 2009. Her classic and modern style is loved across the world, and we can see how she's grown up within the fashion world.
Q: How has she captivated us with her magical style this year?
A: Even though we're only just over half way through this year, 2011 has been a great year so far for Emma Watson. She's done everything from being on the Cover of American Vogue and making everyone want her superstar look to winning an iconic Style Icon award. She's even supporting fair trade by putting her name to fair trade products. She's graced us at the MTV awards and wowed us at the Baftas. Her style so far has gone from strength to strength with many a girl wanting to rock her new hair do! One look that's really done it for Emma this year, is the cream military style shoulder dress she transformed herself with at the MTV Movie awards. She wowed the red carpet looking gorgeous in this Marchesa figure hugging Mini. The detail on the shoulders and the neckline made her send a magical spark to fashion hunters across the globe. The cap sleeves gave her an elegance only she could show off. The flaming siren really was a stuinning vision in White and to finish off her look she paired it with some silver Brian Attwood 'Maniac' platform pumps. Her low statement jewellery was the perfect combination to such a detailed dress and her pair of dangley earrings completed the look.
Q: And finally how is her fashion getting her noticed?
A: Well awards are nothing new to Emma after her success with her Harry Potter career and now she's getting awards and iconic statuses for her style. At this Year's Elle Style Awards she was named Style Icon and was presented her award by Vivvian Westwood. Her dress for the ocassion was a gorgeous cut out nude coloured Hakaan dress and she wore Christian Louboutin shoes to complete her edgy look. Days before she was wearing a completely different look, wearing a cream pleated chifon, one shoulder dress from the Valentino Spring 2011 Couture collection. She's also been named this Year's Britain's Best Dressed after beating Kate Moss and piping Victoria Beckham to the post.
