Emma Watson appears on her fourth Teen Vogue cover for the mag’s August 2013 issue, which hits newsstands today.
The British 23-year-old ‘Bling Ring’ actress was given an au-natural look for the cover – a look we haven’t seen before as I didn’t know she had such cute freckles – wearing a navy sweater with slicked-back hair.
Her editorial, shot by Boo George, sees her wearing Toga Pull, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Etoile Isabel Marant and Saint Laurent.
She talks to the mag about her early success, her fashion faves, shooting ‘The Bling Ring’ and how she still gets nervous when stepping onto the red carpet.
Here are some extracts from her interview.
On her early success: “I think, in a way, I was very protected during Harry Potter, because I was working all the time. I would get in the car, go to the studio, and go home… It’s past the point now. Harry Potter was so massive, I don’t know if [my other projects] would even touch it, honestly, even make a dent.”
On walking the red carpet: “Every now and again, I feel a bit wobbly before hitting a red carpet. So it’s always nice to bring friends, especially because I love to see their reactions. It’s not normal to get out of a car and have, like, 80 people screaming at you, and so when they say, ‘This is crazy,’ it makes me feel slightly more sane.”
On her fashion faves: “I shop at Aritzia and Topshop, and I also love A.P.C. and 3.1 Phillip Lim. Chanel is amazing, and I wore a really beautiful black Dior dress recently that I thought was really cool. And I love Christopher Kane, Peter Pilotto… I’m always keeping an eye out for people who are new or up-and-coming.”
On her future plans: “I wish so badly that I could have a plan. I’m someone who likes to be organized and know what she’s doing, and this industry just does not permit that in any shape or form. You never know when a movie is going to start, if it’s going to get financing, where it’s going to be.”
