Emma Watson premiere buzz gets bigger with each Harry Potter film. Since last night’s Emma Watson premiere look was her next-to-last for a Harry Potter movie, she went all out. Now that her days as playing Hermione Granger are officially over, she is moving on to form a new image. Given that she is almost all grown up, her fashion sense and her looks are under more scrutiny these days. After stunning fans with her new haircut months ago, the latest Harry Potter premiere had Watson show off that haircut, along with a short new dress.
With Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 making its world debut in London yesterday, it was the second-to-last chance for the stars to walk down the red carpet together. While Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint attracted their usual attention, the third member of the Potter trio had a lot of eyes on her as well.
Photos show Watson with a short black dress, which has been called “skimpy” by some British media outlets. In addition, the dress had fashion tape on her back, to make sure nothing else was revealed by accident.
It might be a bit uneasy to talk about her having “wardrobe malfunctions,” given her youthful image. Yet she is getting older, and has been turning more heads as she does so. There is an obvious downside to that, as there was an alleged topless photo of her circulating at college this week, although it was a forgery.
While she hasn’t actually been caught nude – unlike some of her young counterparts – her fashion style has been getting more elaborate. These final pictures may be even more valuable someday, since no one knows how many more red carpets she will walk down.
Her post-Harry Potter career is uncertain, although it isn’t because she might have a hard time finding work or forming a new image. Since she is a committed student at Brown, and is already wealthy, she may have more on her mind than making movies from now on. She already branched out by cutting her famous hair, and is clearly out to forge a new path in some fashion.
The last Harry Potter world premiere for Emma Watson and the gang will come in summer 2011. Since that will be the definitive end, she is sure to have another special look planned before starting her new life in full.
