Say What?! Hermione Influences Emma Watson’s Style

By  | 

Although Emma Watson has impeccable style, her Harry Potter alter-ego has never been much of a trendsetter. Although Hermione’s school uniform is undeniably adorable, the wizard wears the same outfit in seven films. Regardless, Emma credits her interest in fashion to her beloved Hogwarts character.

Find out why she recently said, “I have Hermione to thank, in a weird way, for my sense of style.”

Emma told Women’s Wear Daily, “Playing this role, fashion was my way of expressing myself away from that school uniform. When I got the chance to dress myself, I was so thrilled to be able to be Emma and show a different side of myself. Maybe I would never have been this interested in fashion if I hadn’t played that role for so long and sometimes felt so constrained by being identified with her so much.”

The Harry Potter star added, “I mean, I just wasn’t allowed to do anything: wasn’t allowed to cut my hair, put on nail varnish, tan, wear a bra that made my boobs in any way look [larger], have any flesh showing, wear any makeup when I was playing Hermione. I always had to back-comb my hair — ‘She looks too pretty, take down the blush or the mascara, take it off.’ Fashion was my rebellion.”
