Emma Watson on her fashion transformation

15 July 2009

 Emma Watson

She might have wowed the fashion world last week wearing dresses from Proenza Schouler and Christopher Kane on the red carpet, but Emma Watson's staying grounded about her fashion icon status. ‘I really don't want fashion to overshadow my career – that's my worst nightmare,' she has said and, contrary to rumours earlier this month, she has absolutely no plans to launch her own fashion line. ‘I'm really not interested in doing it for my own ego. I'm not a designer. If someone asked me to do something that was beneficial to a cause, then maybe I'd consider it, but not just [to be able to say] "Look at me! I've got my own line!" It's gotten so ridiculous. The idea of making my own perfume makes me want to vomit.' But that doesn't mean she's not enjoying getting to know designers and showcasing their wares on the red carpet. ‘You feel like you're gearing up for a marathon,' she says of her recent looks. Check out this week's issue of Grazia for more from our cover star on her fashion transformation, her hidden talents – she makes a mean raspberry Amaretto cake – and how her friends keep her grounded.
