Emma Watson for Teen Vogue Magazine

Posted on June 27, 2013

This is the best hairstyle we’ve seen on Miss Emma in ages. Not supercrazy about the makeup, but Teen Vogue is the place for the clean face.


Emma Watson covers the August 2013 issue of Teen Vogue magazine photographed by Boo George and styled by Havana Laffitte.

On her “Harry Potter” days: “I think, in a way, I was very protected during Harry Potter, because I was working all the time. I would get in the car, go to the studio, and go home… It’s past the point now. Harry Potter was so massive, I don’t know if [my other projects] would even touch it, honestly, even make a dent.”

On getting nervous on the red carpet: “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. It’s not normal to get out of a car and have, like, 80 people screaming at you, and so when they say, ‘This is crazy,’ it makes me feel slightly more sane.”

The clothes are cute too. Who knew she could work a semi-punk, neo-Pat Benatar kinda look? That’s one of the great things about her as she gets older, her style wheelhouse seems to be getting bigger and bigger.

    I love being able to see her freckles on the cover.

    • largishbearishAtlish

      did anyone not know that either? how cute :) (I never knew she had them)

    • Lizzy

      JUst going to say the same thing. I love the basic makeup and the freckles!!!

  • Sara

    Intelligent and beautiful woman. Love her.

  • RebeccaKW

    Oh, the freckles! Love.

  • conniemd

    Her clothes and her poses make her look interesting. Pat Benatar is a good comp, with the sexiness in the fierceness. I like the simplicity of the way they styled her. Nice job.

  • Sobaika

    She looks really fresh, it’s surprising the effect little hair and makeup changes can have.

    Side note, I never thought much of her as an actress but she’s hilarious in that Bling Ring movie and pretty much the only good thing about it.

    • Qitkat

      She’s also terrific in The Perks of Being a Wallflower, a warm, funny, touching movie.

  • stubbornthoughts

    I love her. The end. Bye.

  • Danielle L

    She does no wrong in my book.

  • filmcricket

    Hate that hairstyle. Not just on her, on pretty much anyone. Ugh.

    • StellaZafella

      What?…the Quasi Pompadour Mullet?! Geeesh, I got pictures from the 80’s that’d make you puke, except ours were about a half foot taller back then! Heh, heh.

      • Rand Ortega

        Remember Kid from Kid N Play? Me circa 1988. My mother wouldn’t speak to me beyond yes & no for a month.

        • random_poster

          THAT made me laugh out loud!!

        • Heather

          Hilarious. In the slightly earlier 80s I had a photo of John Taylor (of Duran Duran, for the young ‘uns out there) in my bathroom, that I used as a model when I styled my hair. And I’m a girl. A very girly girl.

        • julnyes

          whispers I had a jherri-curl

          Shhh – don’t tell anyone.

          • Rand Ortega

            Sorry (whispers) lol

          • julnyes

            Ha :)

            Honestly it wasn’t the worst hairstyle I ever had, but it was a nightmare to maintain.

    • Kristin McNamara

      In the second picture, she kinda reminds me of Chuck Bass from Gossip Girl. Both her hairstyle and, oddly, her actual face. Never noticed that… she and Ed Westwick could be sibs! haha

    • AmeliaEve

      It suits the style of the shoot, but I don’t think it flatters here. Makes her look like KStew, in fact, when she is much prettier than that.

  • largishbearishAtlish

    Love the coat pic…and freckles? who knew? sort of refreshingly charming. Even if a PR person wrote the quote, what a nice sentiment. Makes me like her that much more.

  • StellaZafella

    Sooner than we think, Emma could be in a class with Cate B…even Tilda. She seems to understand the “character” behind a fashion ‘look’, much as they do and are masters at.

    This shoot makes me think “Is this what Hermione would have done if she and Ron had just stayed friends?”

  • nannypoo

    I don’t like the hair but I do like the makeup. She looks so natural and pretty.

  • Donna Tabor

    Totally disagree about the hair, but it’s great to see her style evolution over the years.

  • Zaftiguana

    I dig it. The make-up is very punk in it’s own way and plays well off the hair.

  • LauraAgain

    Even with the funky hairstyle, she looks sweet. Love the freckles (I’m a freckle-face, too) and I think she is a terrific role model for my 15-year-old daughter. Just adorable!

  • crash1212

    She sure can work a look. But, I’m not feeling her hair like that.

  • ThaliaMenninger

    I don’t like the hairdo. I think it makes her look like a K-Stew wannabe. Which she so shouldn’t want to be. But I like the makeup and the clothes a lot. She has so much more personality in these pics.

    • marlie

      Except that KStew’s hair never looks like its been washes.

    • http://blog.andyschultz.com Andy Schultz

      Nah, K-Stew is a wannabe Emma Watson.

      • lbl

        No. Neither of them are wannabes. They’re both individuals who have been working hard for a long time and they both have their own merits.

  • Rand Ortega

    Love her. Every aspect of her style is so cool. That expression says to me, “I’m so much smarter than this business. Let’s see how much fun I can have”.

  • marlie

    Love her! She looks really cute here.

  • random_poster

    I’ll be keeping an eye out for my daughter’s Teen Vogue to show up in the mail. I’m not a fan of the hairstyle, and am thankful it’s just for a photo shoot. Emma looks wonderful as always.

  • MilaXX

    I think it’s nice to break out the fresh face every so often. Especially while she’s young enough to do it.

  • ailujailuj

    i love it all – especially the androgynous makeup and hair. it is fun.

    and I’m hella biased b/c I just saw another flick she’s in (copolla’s bling ring) and she is a scene stealer throughout. I already touted her other recent film (perks of being a wallflower), which is an absolute MUST SEE coming-of-age film for any teenager or adults. especially adults.

    • SRQkitten

      LOVED Perks! Glad to know other kittens felt the same [g]

    • pookiesmom

      She was utterly charming in This Is the End, too. I think she’s officially having a Moment.

      • ailujailuj

        omg – this is the end. one of the most creative, “stupid-funny” physical comedies that has been done in a very long time. And includes a few female “character” characters (a little disappointing that it’s not more). but seth rogan’s a talented writer.

        • pookiesmom

          Yeah, it wasn’t a great movie by any stretch, but it was wildly entertaining which makes it good in its own right. And I adored Emma in it. She’s come a long way from Harry Potter.

    • Qitkat

      Oops, just posted, w/o reading the commentaria, the same thing about TPOBAW 😉

  • j_anson

    Hmm, this feels very K-Stew to me. I’m not sure how I feel about that.

  • alyce1213

    I love the minimal, natural makeup. She has a great face and cute freckles.

  • unbornfawn

    She’s young and has a natural fresh face. Glad she is showing it off! There will be plenty of opportunity to wear lots of make-up down the road. This young woman is well grounded and has handled her fame beautifully.

  • Haley Buchanan

    I absolutely love the clean face. I love a gal with some visible freckles!

  • Cameron Turner

    I think she looks great! Love the hair and love the makeup! I really like how fresh her face looks…

  • Candigirl1968

    It looks like the 80’s are officially back.

    Great video. It’s nice to see someone who doesn’t think it’s uncool to smile and who seems to enjoy what they are doing.

    • http://dorothydamage.wordpress.com/ Dorothy Damage

      The 80s were back eight years ago. Now the 90s are back, and I’m horrified.

      • filmcricket

        It’s funny. Throughout the whole return of the 80s thing I was like “Man I can’t wait until we cycle through to the 90s” and now that they’re here I’m like “Ugh. What did I want that for again?” I will still take Doc Martens and heroin chic over neon and crimped hair, but the belly shirt could have stayed dead and buried.

        • http://dorothydamage.wordpress.com/ Dorothy Damage

          I feel like every girl in London is wearing a belly shirt and overalls, with Axl Rose glasses. Why can’t they wear Janeane Garafalo and kinderwhore/riot grrl clothes, I would (surprisingly) be completely behind that. Or dressing like Salt N Pepa, which is actually pretty popular with black and brown girls here.

  • veleri

    love the freckles, love the hair! I don’t think I have ever seen her looking this good 😀

  • Diego!

    I love her. She looks amazing and I wish her the best! (It’s Friday, therefore I’m in a great mood! LOL) 😀

  • Sunraya

    She is just adorable!! And seems very grounded, too. Nice to see.

  • Beardslee

    Teen Vogue always does a good job, and this is no exception. Love the clean face and the direct, intelligent gaze.

  • lrober03

    She should just chop that ponytail off and go back to rocking the short hair cut.

  • mjude

    adorable. love her

  • Ros

    Sadly, she seems to have adopted the KStew vacuous face. Shame.

  • julnyes

    I have to say I actually really like the make-up. I had no idea she had freckles!

  • Sara Brams-Miller

    She is so incredibly beautiful. She doesn’t need any makeup.

  • carnush

    gorgeous cover. love her freckles!

  • imakeart

    As an old gal who’s lived with a mass of freckles all my life, I love seeing this beautiful lady bare hers. She is gorgeous.

  • http://marshmallowjane.com/ marshmallowjane

    She is giving good face. Her modeling is improving.

  • ItsDicey

    Digging the 80’s hair and adore the freckles.

  • Adrianna Grężak

    I covet the jacket she’s wearing in the video interview

  • Elleachaudaucul

    Her eyebrows are to die for.
