Grabbing the cover of another December 2010 magazine cover Emma Watson is gorgeous on Marie Claire (see Emma’s Vogue UK feature here.) Since it is a winter issue and the editors are out of ideas, the actress is again in icy white with dark eyeliner and pale lips. It’s not that I think she doesn’t looks fabulous, but c’mon – let’s have some originality and choose to make a statement. Emma has beautiful features and can pull off just about any look.
For the interview, Watson gives us the scoop on her radical short hair cut, her awesome friends at Brown and how she is similar to her Harry Potter character, Hermoine Granger:
On her stylish, pixie cut:
“I’ve wanted to do it since I was about 16, and when Harry Potter ended in June, I just needed a change. It was quite symbolic for me. It’s very short; it was buzzed at the back and on the sides. And it’s really liberating that I can walk out without thinking about it.”
On her “protective” friends at Brown:
“I found a great group of girlfriends… Brown has a real sense of community, and people are very protective of me. They really look out for me; they want me to feel like I’m part of it. I threw my 20th birthday party at Brown, and I didn’t even have to say to anyone not to put pictures on Facebook. Not a single picture went up. That was when I knew I’d found a solid group of friends, and I felt like I belonged.”
On playing Harry Potter’s pal Hermione:
“Playing Hermione just came so naturally; I had a real affinity for her. I felt like I knew exactly who she was. Like me, she’s very loyal and determined, she’s very intelligent, and she has a lot of guy friends, as I do. Her eagerness to please and to have the right answer is definitely like me. I’m a perfectionist, so my bossiness definitely comes out.”
Emma will be doing a lot more press as the release for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1 gets closer to release on November 19th.

Emma Watson and Logan Lerman are inking deals to join The Perks of Being a Wallflower. The popular Stephen Chobsky novel is finally headed to the big screen with the author writing the screenplay and directing.
The story of Charlie (Lerman) is told through letters to an unknown friend as he struggles with growing up, depression, suicide, drugs, sexual coming of age and the feelings he develops for his friend Sam (Watson.) The book is often challenged or outright banned for it’s content.
Let’s get this on screen sooner rather than later!

Emma Watson’s clothing collaboration with People Tree UK is due next month and this early review of the fashion line is very positive. The ethically and environmentally sensitive wearables not only encompass her principles, they are stylish and comfortable as well.
[...]there are cropped tracksuit pants, little sailor-stripe T-shirt dresses, cricket jumpers and hoodies, polo-tops and plaid shirts for the boys. As Watson herself admits, at present her competition is minimal. “I think young people like me are becoming increasingly aware of the humanitarian issues surrounding fast fashion and want to make good choices but there aren’t many options out there.”
I have been following Emma and People Tree’s collection development for a while now – hoping it was as good as it sounded. Lots of designers try to use sustainable or natural fibers and fabrics for some of their lines and some manage to positively contribute to impoverished workers’ futures, but very few do both. This has great potential to set the benchmark for other designers and firms to get both aspects working together and still make great fashion.
The line will be available on People Tree’s UK website in February. If you believe in it and like it – support it!

Emma Watson has been crowned the biggest grossing actress of the 00′s by The Guinness Book of World Records. Thanks to the Harry Potter franchise of films and her voice over work for the animated The Tale of Desperaux, Watson’s films take in more money at release time than any other actress, beating out the likes of Julia Roberts and Reese Witherspoon. Watson will be seen in the final two Harry Potter flicks in 2010 and 2011. Until then, the Brown University freshman is keeping a low profile while studying in the US.

She has been hit with these rumours before and has denied them, but once again the possible Emma Watson as-fashion-designer talk is buzzing around the net. This time, the soon to be college freshman at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island will team up with People Tree and launch a line of eco-friendly and ethical designs. The Harry Potter actress has said in the past the she wouldn’t do a clothing line to feed her ego, however she might be open to helping out a cause. Fair trade, organic, sustainable and ethical sound like ideas Watson could go for but it would be difficult for her to do so while attending her first semester of college.

Celebrities often start their own clothing line with mixed results. Gwen Stefani has L.A.M.B. and does well, Victoria Beckham has DVB and is not as successful. Now Emma Watson is rumoured to be entering the cutthroat design world as well. The soon-to-be Yale freshman will be working on a clothing line all her own and proceeds are going to UNICEF. Can’t wait to see haute couture loving Emma’s stylish clothes.
