Hermione gets her trashy-chic on for Brit GQ:

Ah, the classics never really go out of style:
It’s just that it’s sometimes a shock what gets elevated to classic status. Not exactly Audrey in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, is it?
On playing ‘Nicki’ in her upcoming film ‘The Bling Ring': “When I read the script and I realized that essentially it was a meditation on fame and what it’s become to our society, I had to do it. The character is everything that I felt strongly against – she’s superficial, materialistic, vain, amoral. She’s all of these things and I realized that I hated her. How do you play someone you hate? But I found it really interesting and it gave me a whole new insight into what my job, or my role as an actress, could be.”
On why she chose the role: “Really I was open-minded about doing anything, but the one thing I didn’t want to do was get myself into a corset because I was worried I’d never get out again. I knew it would be a really comfortable thing to do, but I felt…I had to dive into something really different. This has been a really big departure for me; it’s a really big character. That’s so exciting for me because it meant I was really acting.”
She’s “in character” for these shots, so she gets to look a little trashy. It’s a shame she didn’t actually play the character for the cameras instead of just standing there and posing.

Still, it’s kind of fun to see Hermione with a giant pair of brass knuckles spelling out “QUEEN.”
