Emma Watson’s New Day

Emma Watson by Mario Testino for Vogue US July 2011

Hermione Granger who?

Love love love the high fashion extravaganza that is this shoot.  Emma Watson has been developing some high wattage style.  Always willing to take a risk and fly the flag for haute couture, she has very unique taste while remaining utterly chic.  I am quite impressed with the pieces she chooses.  Vogue (and Grace Coddington) certainly doesn’t hold back any; they pulled out all the stops for Emma’s very first Vogue shoot and cover.  And I, for one, think she looks utterly fabulous.

Emma shines in bedazzled pieces from Aquilano.Rimondi and Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2011 Collections and stuns in various oversized Prada sequins.  My personal favorite is the Tom Ford (featured above/Shot 1) brass feather skirt.  Amor-esque and eye-catching, it brings both decadent luxury and fierce edge.  Those two traits are something that Ford always excels at.  Moreover, not many can pull off these kookier Prada pieces.  This shoot is all about glamour and luxury coupled with fierce attitude and diva-entitled persona.   And to top that off, I am entirely charmed by the light dusting of freckles that I can make out in spite of the heavy slick makeup.   The makeup is very done, but she pulls it off well.  She comes across edgy yet approachable (love the slicked by pixie cut).  Not to mention, utterly adorable with that plastic Marc Jacobs beret in shot 2.  Brava Emma! I hope this is a sign of even more fabulous Vogue shoots to come.
