When most typecast starlets decide to break the mould and show the world they’re no longer an innocent young thing, they vamp it up to beyond-reasonable levels, do something particularly debaucherous, or maybe even land a Playboy cover. Not Emma Watson. Much more subtle, yet somehow just as bold, she cut off her hair. No longer Hermione Granger, but still Emma Watson, she’s managed to step out of character rather successfully, and has done so in style.
Attending the world premiere of Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows: Part One in a trend trifecta of see-through lace and feathers, Emma unsurprisingly stole the spotlight off her less sartorially-striking colleagues.
Emma’s dress was by Rafael Lopez for Atelier Mayer.
