One of the most iconic British actresses has to be Emma Watson, who just turned 25. She’s definitely not facing any quarter-life crisis anytime soon!
Since her iconic and breakthrough role as Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter film series, Watson has become one of the youngest artists celebrated in Hollywood. Since 2001, the star gained worldwide fame by playing the intelligent wizard and also starred in other blockbusters and independent films.
Shocking the world with her pixie hair cut in 2013, Watson broke her model girl image playing Sam in The Perks of being a Wallflower. The coming-of-age film was a breakthrough for the world to see what the young talent was capable of. A year later, Sofia Coppola casted Emma to play in her satirical teenage crime movie, The Bling Ring. Together with an ensemble of newcomers, the lead role marked a turning point in her career. Last year, Emma Watson gained even more recognition of her talents when she joined Russell Crowe in the American blockbuster Noah. Recently, it was also announced that she will be joining the cast of Beauty and the Beast, a live-action Disney filmed scheduled for 2017.
As a real testimonial for her commitment, Emma Watson was appointed as Goodwill Ambassador for UN women last year. Advocating gender equality across the world, the activist help to launch UN Women campaign #HeForShe with her star power. Gathering support and respect from her fellow celebrity peers, her voice is the one truly sought after in our generation.
Throughout her career, Emma Watson is also known as a queen of the style. As the muse of brands such as Chanel, Burberry, Lancôme and a regular at the front rows during Fashion Week, she is one fashionista to follow. Striking the right balance between British classic and casual elegance, the actress remains poised and effortlessly chic on the streets and is even more impressive on red carpet.
“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. ― Emma Watson”
