Emma Watson: good girl gone bad

It seems like only yesterday that Emma Watson appeared on screen for the first time in the beginning of the intensely successful Harry Potter franchise. But that was actually a whole decade ago. Now the series has ended and Watson is ready to move onto other things, and part of that process is showing the world she’s more than just Hermoine.

Sticking to her pixie crop hairstyle, Emma Watson off-screen has a classic yet mod kind of beauty. Playing to that is a shoot for the August issue of Harper’s Bazaar UK that dresses her in a Jekyll & Hyde contrast of good girl and bad girl. For1920 one of those characters her Mia Farrow-esque crop is replaced by a dark, sharp flapper-like bob. That, of course, is the bad girl.

The important role that hair plays for actors when they’re doing their best to shed a particular image just serves to prove how powerful a hairstyle can be. And it adds weight to the notion that, that when you’re looking at choosing a hair colour or indeed a cut, the key thing is to just change it.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for Fashionising.com, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
