A couple of days ago, the editor of ‘Glamour UK’ revealed that the October issue of the magazine would feature Emma Watson to kick off upcoming “Perks” promotions. The gorgeous cover and a new photoshoot image, by Vincent Peters, was revealed this morning by The Telegraph. A new interview with Emma – in which she talks “love, fashion and body confidence” – will also be published in the magazine.
Emma Watson names her all-time favourite outfits
Unsurprisingly, Emma Watson’s stepmother’s cast-offs aren’t amongst her favourite red carpet looks, but read on to find out which are.
Barely-teen starlets Chloe Moretz, Hailee Steinfeld and Kiernan Shipka might have made wearing school uniform one day and Chanel Haute Couture the next de rigueur for the five-foot-and-under population in Hollywood, but that hasn’t always been the case.
It’s no secret that when an young Emma Watson promoted the Harry Potter films which have brought her huge wealth and fortune, she used to rely on her stepmother’s cast-offs to tread the red carpet. Undoubtedly style lows, the actress has now admitted that wearing “things that were just far too big for me too” are also up their on her ‘rather forget’ list.
So what is worth celebrating about her now very grown-up wardrobe, which includes elegant and occasionally risqué numbers by Valentino, Burberry and Marchesa?
“My all-time favourites are probably the white Alexander McQueen dress I wore to the Empire Awards and the vintage Ossie Clark dress I found in a shop around the corner from my house…” the 22-year-old tells the new issue of Glamour , which she covers to promote her new film, The Perks of Being a Wallflower .
Unlike the aforementioned Steinfelds and Shipkas, Watson was the ripe old age of 18 when she debuted in said McQueen, wowing the crowds at The National Movie Awards in London in a romantic white gown with draped sleeves and a silver, crystal-embellished bust. And as for the grey, plunging neckline Ossie Clark gown she wore to the Harry Potter And The Half Blood Prince premiere in London’s Leicester Square in 2009, we’re glad to hear the memories sustained from that evening are good ones; torrential rain and a gust of wind revealed her flesh-coloured undergarments to the world.
Luckily, Watson has taken it all in her rather down-to-earth stride: “it helps that I’ve accepted my body shape more as I’ve got older” she concludes.
