Emma Watson makes it though another magazine cover: this time it’s Vogue! Teen Vogue, but Vogue nevertheless! She’s the August 2009 cover girl, under the code “Emma Enchanted”.
Oh, I know (at least) our dear friend Ellington’s gonna believe I couldn’t resist the temptation! (I honestly tried, I did! I spent four days contemplating these pictures and asking if they’re relevant! That’s gotta count for something, right?) (the story continues with more pictures and a video right after the jump!)
I think I finally know why I was into Emma Watson without any reserves or justifications: because of her Hermione role (duh!). She successfully impersonated a geek! And there was no shame about it! I was a geek myself, in my scholar days. And thought nothing could glam up (or charm) the geek posture ever, never! Well, Emma did! And that’s why I like(d) her!
Of course she goes on about her “fashion” sense insisting on how normal she is, wearing Topshop jeans and Ralph Lauren t shirts on a daily routine, but oh, we know best, don’t we! Whoever has been touched by Kaiser’s magic (and his Wee bear lol) can’t go on living like before! She was fash-enlightened! Had her Burberry epiphany in 2008 and there she goes, one year later, as their spokesface in the fall 2009 ad campaign. Will she take the entire 2010 chez Chanel?
Back to Emma Enchanted from Teen Vogue August 2009 – I don’t think it suits Emma at all. In fact, she should keep that uni-path she’s keen on following, it could serve her better than fashion. Geeks shall be geeks! (1, 2)
