My Fair … Hermione? Not-so-little-anymore star Emma Watson looked every bit the darling British dame while walking the carpet at the London premiere of "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince." Let's see how her style has evolved over the years.
Emma looked adorable in this ever-so-slightly-sexy yet age-appropriate shoulder-baring beige sundress at the New York premiere of "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban" in 2004. Her sweet elfin flats complete the look.
Emma attempts a modern goth girl look in this deep maroon gown, softened by a romantic (if overly large) corsage at the London premiere of "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban" in 2004. Mary Shelley would be so proud.
At London's '05 "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" premiere, Emma looked more like a flower girl walking down the wedding aisle than a movie star on a red carpet. Ballet flats and a hippie headband certify it as a non-stylist-assisted outfit.
Emma is more traditional Hogwarts than Hollywood haute couture (and that's not a bad thing) in this demure, gray sateen frock at the New York premiere of "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" in 2005.
It appears Emma threw everything but the kitchen sink into this gauzy lilac, deep purple satin, multi-colored ribbons and slouchy black boots ensemble at the 2006 Empire Film Awards in London. Is she running home to change?
Emma's attendance at London Fashion Week in September 2008 indicated a style enlightenment was underway for the young actress. Her crimson lipstick, smart black blazer, trendy knit scarf and serious gaze portend the approaching transformation.
Just as we suspected, Emma's fashion sense took a dramatic turn to the sophisticated side when she wore this sleek navy minidress to the December '08 premiere of "The Tale of Despereaux" in Los Angeles.
In Greek mythology, Hermione was the daughter of renowned international beauty Helen of Troy. Accordingly, Emma is stunning in a bejeweled toga-inspired goddess gown at London's National Film Awards in September 2008.
Emma is clearly the next young "lady in waiting" to Kate Winslet's current Queen Thespian crown. The elegant gown she wore to the British Academy Film Awards in February 2009 pretty much seals the deal.
Did we say Kate Winslet? Maybe we spoke too soon. Emma channels Cyndi Lauper circa 1985 in the funky, punk-ette Rodarte frock she wore to the designer's private dinner at Harvey Nichols in London last month.
Finally, Emma hits the perfect post-modern movie princess style note in this "high-tea-meets-Cheetah-Girl" ensemble in the July 2009 pages of Teen Vogue. Step aside Hayden Panettiere: There's a more-deserving, less-pretentious young role model in town.
