Muse of the Month: Emma Watson

By Gillian Brett

Emma Watson’s wardrobe has evolved quite significantly since she first stepped shyly into the limelight ten years ago. When our favourite Hogwart’s alumni traded her school uniform for a Burberry trench, she became one of the most reputable fashionistas on the red carpet.

This month, the 21 year old’s sartorial credentials were certified when she topped Glamour magazine’s World’s Best Dressed Woman Poll. Her love for fashion doesn’t rank style over sustainability however as she’s collaborated three times with the ego-friendly label, People Tree, to create an organic and fair-trade collection.

Emma’s latest fashion venture is with luxury Italian designer, Alberta Ferretti. Again, her collection will be an eco-friendly endeavour. Entitled, Pure Threads by Emma Watson, the actress told WWD that the collection will be “very classic” and inspired by “60s Jane Birkin”. “I’m pleased that a luxury brand such as Alberta Ferretti has decided to create ecological clothes,” she also revealed. “I believe this is a big step forward for all of the international fashion industry, but also an important step for an increased sensitivity to the problem of ecology.” With a capsule wardrobe consisting of two dresses, a long skirt, a shirt and denim shorts, the range can be viewed here on the Ferretti website:

Here are our top 10 moments from Emma’s style evolution:

1. 2001
Taking her first foray into fashion at the Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone premiere in London, 11-year-old Emma’s unusual style choices gave her instant red carpet recognition (perhaps for guts alone though).

2. 2002
Hitting London’s Leicester Square for the world premiere of the second Harry Potter instalment, Emma sported this pretty lilac gown.

3. 2007
With her style star rising and rising, Emma wowed yet again in this Chanel couture dress, matching blue satin heels and simple, yet cool accessories in the shape of this lethal cocktail ring.

4. 2007
Continuing her love affair with Chanel (and fuelling rumours she was to become the face of the brand), Emma looked stunning in this white bejewelled frock and silver pumps.

5. 2008
Goodbye Chanel, hello Burberry! Emma Watson arrived at a London party in this edgy, fawn-hued Burberry Prorsum creation and fierce heels, just a matter of months before the star was announced as the face of the brand.

6. 2008
By now a regular on the fashion scene, Emma’s simple yet chic look – teaming an All Saints leather jacket with ruby red lippy – put her in the front row at Christopher Kane.

7. 2009
It’s angelic, it’s elegant, it’s vintage –this could be our favourite red carpet Emma moment ever? Her Ossie Clark print gown is just perfection.

8. 2009
A custom-made, textured, Burberry party dress in dazzling gold, edgy Burberry skyscraper heels, a haphazard up-do and smoky eyes – yes, we LOVE this look!

9. 2010
In a leather-sleeved Burberry trench, Emma is sassy and sophisticated.

10. 2011
Emma’s transformed from super-sweet teen to edgy fashionista. We love her in this cutaway Hakaan minidress. We can’t wait to see what Miss Watson steps out next in.
