Emma Watson: "There's Nothing Interesting about Looking Perfect"

Harry Potter star and Burberry model Emma Watson makes a grown-up glam appearance on the cover of Teen Vogue‘s August issue with her D&G puffy-shouldered plum blouse with applique details, floral D&G skirt tied with an emerald Mokuba ribbon and a crystal Fallon tiara. And though wearing luxe labels is nothing new to the famous teen — who has been hitting the red carpet since she was 11 in Chanel and Balenciaga — the actress tells the magazine that in her everyday life, she’s careful to make sure her outfits never look overdone. “There’s nothing interesting about looking perfect—you lose the point. You want what you’re wearing to say something about you, about who you are,” says Emma. And when you can count Christopher Bailey (of Burberry) and Karl Lagerfeld as your friends, looking stylish just comes with the territory. Check out more of Emma’s interview with Teen Vogue where the star dishes on college, her future acting plans and more style at
