Emma Watson's Grown-Up Look: Love It or Hate It?

Richard Young/Startraks

Emma Watson performed magic worthy of her Harry Potter character Hermione Granger at a dinner in London last night to honor Chanel artistic director Karl Lagerfeld. The 17-year-old star seemed to magically grow up in before our eyes, in classic head-to-toe Chanel and sophisticated ruby lips. We love that Emma chose such an elegant ensemble for the event, but we want to know what you think. Tell us: Do you like Emma’s chic, adult look? Or would you prefer it if she dressed more like a teen?

HATE IT! Sorry Emma!

Teenagers want to be and look older and yet they look at older women and are dismissive. These same teenagers…they reach a certain age and they’re bent on youth. Teenage girls…they’re nothing short of confusing, never mind the “raging hormones”.
A 17 year old needs to look more like a teenager unless she’s so mature she looks older than her years. On someone so young, bright red lipstick….ugh!! Even if retro red is in, what’s old is now new, doesn’t always look flattering on someone under 30, never mind a teenager who’s an actor (female for those who aren’t aware that in the SAG union, women and men are actors.)

I’m not digging the red lips (but I don’t dig them on anyone but Gwen Stefani for some reason) and I wish we could see the entire ensemble. That said, I think this is a very classy look, quite the opposite of the sleazy nonsense we see most young starlets wearing these days.

Well done, Emma, but next time choose a more neutral lip color. That red is not doing it for me.

I’m sorry, but this look is not sophisticated on her, because she is way too young for a classic Chanel suit! This looks like something a sophisticated woman of 55 or 60 wears not an 18 year old. Chanel is a classic, I’m sure she can find something a little younger and edgier than this!


It looks like the outfit made her sad. Clothes should not only be stylish but reflect the person/personality. not a good photograph, can’t see her feet/shoes.

I think she looks really bad! That shade of red does not compliment her! I don’t really know how old she is, but I know she’s young, and she looks like a little girl trying to look twenty-something. If her goal is to look modest but chic, I suggest her to lighten up! There are soo many options for her that are very girly, stylish, young, and discreet that would work better.

I don’t know–I like this look but I’m not feeling it on her, the outfit is adoorable but the lipstick washes her out completely. She hasn’t missed in the past, but she sure does miss the mark here!

i hate it…. the lipstick it’s doesn’t look good… maybe something more naturallook better on her… because she is pretty

Lizzie on

Hi find this look very sophistocated, and I think she looks stunning. I think if she was to smile, she’d look loads better. But overall, I think she looks very beautiful. It’s so sad to see them grow up so fast!

Leah on

I really like it all but not necissarily the lipstick and outfit together. I thik she should’ve gone with a more natural lip color………………..but i love emma watson!!! harry potter’s amazing and i’m excited to see how she looks in Half Blood Prince in November 2008!!!! i cant wait to see her style in the movie and if it has changed!!!!!
