Pink, perky and pixie Emma Watson is featured on the cover of Russia’s Elle Girl for November 2010. This cover is a nice contrast to the two wintery white ones for Vogue UK (see that cover here) and Marie Claire (and this one here.)
Watson is ready to step out of her comfort zone and put more of herself on the line. The Harry Potter actress recently said:
“Three months ago I cut my hair and at that moment I felt I became a woman,” she said.
“At the moment I’m just happy to be single. I want to live life to the full. But I’m more grown up and confident now. I’m ready to take more risks. I feel less girlish than ever.”
She also says she is happy at Brown University in Rhode Island and isn’t as recognized in the US as she is in the England but does miss Britain.
Lots more Emma (and Dan, Rupert, Tom, Evanna, Bonnie etc…) as everyone does more and more press for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1 opening: November 19th.

Demi Lovato is part of a Public Service Announcement shoot encouraging people to take part in the upcoming 2010 US Census. Voto Latino is aimed at the latino community, in particular, to help ensure more accurate results and representation from the census.
“Be Counted, Represent!” Census initiative: Latinos have been historically under-counted by the Census and Voto Latino wants to help ensure that the 2010 Census results in a more accurate picture of the Latino community and America at large. Voto Latino is asking young Latinos to encourage their communities to complete the Census. Voto Latino will give-away a number of Flip Cameras so you can upload you or your family’s pledge to be counted! Pledge to be counted.
Lovato, Rosario Dawson, Wilmer Valderrama, Luis Guzman and Jorge Garcia are part of Voto Latino. The video above is a very short behind the scenes look at the PSA shoot that happened Sunday January 10th.

After a very successful trip at the end of May of this year, England’s Prince Harry may visit the United States more often to continue to garner support for his charity Sentebale. While in New York City last month the charming Prince, who is third in line to the British throne, was able to raise quite a bit of money for his organization in Lesotho, Africa to help ease the suffering of children who are affected by the AIDS epidemic.
“Harry’s polo match was a big success and raised a substantial six-figure sum,” says one of Harry’s chums. “He is keen for the American Friends of Sentebale to build on that success.”
We’d love to see more of the very attractive Prince here in the U.S. His mother, the late Princess Diana, was very fond of the time she spent here and while Prince Harry won’t be moving here, a few more jaunts to the States would be welcome.
