Emma Watson: I Don't Want People To Think Fashion Is My Main Thing

Updated

To see Emma Watson on any red carpet, it’s hard to believe that she may not want to be perceived as a fashionista.

But in the August issue of Teen Vogue, the Bling Ring star confesses that she stepped back from her pet design projects for just that reason.

“I took a very conscious step back. I think people were getting confused,” she says. “They seemed to think that I was a fashionista or that fashion was my main thing, and I didn’t want that once I figured out I really did want to act.”

That doesn’t mean, of course, that she’s not willing to strike a stunning pose when it’s appropriate — as evidenced by her gorgeous spread for the magazine, accompanied by a punky pompadour hairdo with mini braids throughout (a far cry from her last super-ladylike editorial!)

She also confesses that her super-cool red carpet persona is all an act (“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!”) and shares some of her favorite places to shop (Topshop, Aritzia, Chanel, Christopher Kane … are you taking notes?) in the revealing interview.
