One of the biggest obstacles that young Hollywood faces is the ability to jump ship from child star to major star. Fortunately for Emma Watson, she’s waaay past that. Let’s face it, Hermione Granger is all grown up now, and life after Potter is looking pretty amazing. At the age of only 23, she’s already made some major waves in both Hollywood and the fashion world. The best part? She’s only just begun.
If the last Watson film you caught was a Harry Potter flick, please step out from under that rock you’ve been living under. Not only did our girl nail it as the free-spirited Sam in Stephen Chbosky’s The Perks of Being a Wallflower, but she also very accurately portrayed the infamous ex-reality star Alexis Neiers as Nicki in Sofia Coppola’s The Bling Ring. Let’s also not forget about Watson’s very memorable cameo in Seth Rogen’s This Is The End (in a nutshell, she threatens to kill Rogen and his buddies with a shovel). More recently, Watson rocked some pretty gnarly dreads in Darren Aronofsky’s Noah, which has already grossed an estimated $44 million in its first weekend. If that doesn’t impress you, get this: rumor also has it that Sofia Coppola has Watson in mind to play Ariel in the live-action rendition of The Little Mermaid. Uh, is there a petition out there that’s rallying to make this happen? Because we already signed it. Yesterday.
As if homegirl’s hectic Hollywood schedule wasn’t enough, the actress-turned-fashionista has been turning heads with her classic-meets-modern-with-a-side-of-edge style. Burberry, Chanel, Oscar de la Renta, and Vera Wang are just a couple of heavy hitters that Watson has been sporting on and off the red carpet, and damn, does she make them look good. From tuxedos to cut-out numbers to wearing dresses with pants (game changer), Watson has risked it all for the love of fashion. Who would have thought that the frizzy-haired wizard we all knew would go from geek to chic overnight? Now that’s a spell we don’t want to break. Take a look at some of Emma Watson’s major moments in fashion below.
