Emma has set fans abuzzing by starting a riddle game which ultimately will tell us what her next project will be! Starting on her Facebook page, Emma promises to release clues via her Twitter, @EmWatson, about her next endeavour.
Hi guys, just wanted to let you know that I will be releasing some information over the next few days on www.twitter.com/emwatson about an exciting new project I am doing! Check it out and see if you can guess the answers…! Em x
A new venture is starting – what can it be? Follow my clues and you will see…
I’ll pierce your skin if you hold me wrong but I’ll love you forever if you pass me on. A rose has thorns which “pierce” and are given to those you love. A rose is also the logo for the luxury beauty brand Lancôme.
I’ll be seen through a lens that has seen me before. Do you know who I mean, or do you still need more? The Daily Mail reported that the Lancôme campaign would be shot by Mario Testino; Testino previously shot Emma for Vogue UK and her Burberry campaigns.
Are you keeping pace? No? Don’t lose face, it’s not a race. We share our birthplace… Emma was born in Paris, France. Lancôme’s first store was in Paris.
It’s a beauty house that wears a hat. French? Very, but this is no beret. Tricky, but doesn’t refer to a physical hat – the word “Lancôme” has a “hat” over the “o”.
This Pretty Woman was their latest recruit. Other great actresses have previously followed suit. Kate Winslet, Anne Hathaway, Julia Roberts and Penelope Cruz were previously spokesmodel for Lancôme.
Popular theories include: Emma for Katniss in the upcoming “Hunger Games” movies; or, Emma confirming her involvement with Lancôme – previously reported by us here. Looks like the Lancôme theory is winning outright – check above for possible explanations to the clues! There’s also a post about an upcoming announcement on the official website. What can you guys come up with?
I think it’s Lancome. A friend told me Lancome’s logo is a rose and rose is a great answer to Emma’s clue. Whatever it is, I’m excited to see it!

I definitely think it’s Lancôme but a visitor on the emma-watson.com website has put a very interesting theory about why it could also be for The Hunger games. No matter what, I do not think Emma wouyld want to do another franchise.

Reckon it’s also the Lancome deal, you’re right the logo is a rose.

I’m leaning towards the Lancôme-side of the theories, mostly because a) I don’t see Emma attaching herself to another book-to-movie franchise, especially one as popular and hyped as “Hunger Games”; b) she looks nothing like Katniss, she’d be better suited for Joanna; and c) the Lancôme logo being a rose and being a model for a brand is easier to fit into a busy schedule than two movies (“Perks” and “Hunger Games”) both being due out 2012.
But, hey, she might blow us all out of the water and announce a completely new, unseen project! :)

Of course, Lancome’s logo is a rose… and that does fit the riddle very well, I think that must be it. We’ll have to see .. :)

Well,what we all can say,no Movie

There’s a née tweet, pretty sure she means Mario Testino who is rumoured to be shooting the Lancome adverts. The daily mail were right *faints*

@LB, LOL about the Daily Mail! I agree with you about Mario Testino. Lancome looks like a sure thing now.

It’s definitely Lancome guys! Take a look at the last clue… They DEFINITELY share their birthplace ;)
Well I guess we’ll get to see the official announcement soon :)

uh-uh…i have no idea. oh well, whatever the next project is, I’m looking forward to know what it is.

Lancôme, all the way. Same birthplace, a French beauty house with hat…No more doubt :)
