How Emma Watson changed her look

Emma Watson’s style transformation is complete. The child actress is now all grown up and, thanks to her distinct beauty look and inimitable sense of style, she’s become one of the world’s modern fashion icons.

Her go-to labels include everyone from major Parisian fashion houses like Chanel and Dior, to cool London labels like Christopher Kane, but brands the world over are dying to dress her.

Emma’s personal style is polished and feminine, but she always adds an edge to her look, whether via her stacked up ear cuffs, or just a great pair of statement shoes.

She often surprises on the red carpet – take, for example, that time at the 2014 Golden Globes, when she wore Dior trousers and a dress-like top instead of a cheesy ball gown like everybody else. Or when she turned up in the sharpest of tuxedos for a television appearance in New York. Now that’s what we call power dressing and a guaranteed way to make the global best dressed lists.

As a fresh-faced 10 year-old, Emma first stole the nation’s heart as Hermione Granger, making her first tentative steps on the red carpet and experimenting (as all 10 year-olds did in the 00s) with teeny tiny heels and tons of accessories.

The final Harry Potter press tour was a key turning point in Emma’s fashion journey, though. She chopped all of her hair into a cool pixie crop (a move she would later describe as ‘the most liberating thing’) and chose achingly beautiful (and totally grown up) gowns by Oscar de la Renta and Bottega Veneta to let everybody know she was leaving Hermione Granger behind and heralding in the current era of Emma the fashion world favourite.
