Is Emma Watson ditching Hermione’s school uniform for some much more fashionable frocks? WWD is reporting that the Harry Potter actress has reportedly been signed up to star as the new face of Burberry’s ad campaign. It would be a fashionably appropriate move for the actress (who turned 19 today) as she has been a huge fan of the quintessentially British label since wearing it on the cover of Teen Vogue back in 2005 and has often donned a little Burberry Prorsum when the occasion demands it. A Burberry spokesman remained tight lipped about the campaign, telling PEOPLE: “The campaign is not yet finalised and once it is we don’t release any information until the official launch time, which would be around June of this year.” The actress has been busy making fashionable waves during her gap year, having starred in a 20-page fashion feature in Vogue Italy and attending fashion shows in Paris and London. Check back for more on the campaign as details are revealed. –Monique Jessen

Emma is so beautiful and classy, she could be the face of anything. I so admire her – I was not nearly as much of a lady at her age!
