Emma Watson is best known for playing the character of Hermione Granger, one of Harry Potter’s best friends in the ‘Harry Potter’ film franchise.
As a teenager coming of age as an established movie star, Watson has also emerged as a fashionista. Her style has caught the eye of many major figures in the fashion industry. “I love fashion. I think it`s so important, because it’s how you show yourself to the world,” said Watson.
In September 2009 Watson announced that she was working with People Tree, a fashion label that promotes fair trade. Watson catapulted into the world of high fashion and modeling when she was chosen as the face of Burberry’s Autumn/Winter 2009 collection, and again for the 2010 Spring/Summer collection.
Watson took fans by surprise when she chopped off her long locks, and debuted a pixie haircut in August 2010. The new ‘do helped her shed the child star image of her Potter days, and in July 2011, Watson graced the cover of Vogue. The next month, she starred in a commercial for Lancôme perfume.
Maintaining her commitment to her education, Watson enrolled as a freshman at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island in the fall of 2009. Watson claimed she chose an American university over a British education because the American system allows students to study many subjects at once. Brown was also a place, Watson said, where she could more easily blend in. “I want to be normal,” she said. “I really want anonymity.”
In March 2011 Watson announced that she was deferring her schooling to work on the Potter finale. In July 2011, Watson announced plans to return to Brown for a year to complete her degree after studying at Oxford University in the fall. She graduated from Brown in 2014 with an English degree. That same year, she was appointed a UN Women Goodwill Ambassador. She continues to speak out for women’s rights and equality.
After concluding the Harry Potter series, Watson starred in The Perks of Being a Wallflower (2012), The Bling Ring (2013), This Is The End (2013), and Noah (2014). In 2017, she played the lead role of Belle in the live-action adaptation of the box office hit Beauty and the Beast, the highest-grossing live action musical of all time. In May 2017, Watson was the first person to win the MTV Movie and TV Award’s first gender-neutral award for Best Actor in Movie. “MTV’s move to create a genderless award for acting will mean something different to everyone,” added Watson. “But to me, it indicates that acting is about the ability to put yourself in someone else’s shoes. And that doesn’t need to be separated into two different categories.”
