Emma Watson’s Burberry Fall Winter 2009 2010 Ad Campaign

  • Pin it

We have the final outcome of those long rumored Burberry ads starring Emma Watson for Fall Winter 2009 2010 (as the Brits put it – Burberry Autumn Winter 2009 2010).

Sweet Hermione is really grown up and takes Burberry to the next level of trendyness – the magic level! It doesn’t even bother me that she’s facing the same ol’ problem with today’s fashion representation: actresses/models, is there any difference after all? (the story continues with more pictures right after the jump!)

Emma Watson Burberry Fall Winter 09 10 ad

The only thing that really bothers me in this Burberry FW 09/10 ad campaign is that you can’t have Emma co-starring. She steals the show anyhow, so what’s the point in adding those male models in the photo? (wearing all that Burberry really paid off for Emma, didn’t it?) (via)

Burberry has the best trench coats. I adore them. I’m willingly to go bankrupt for the grey one.
As for Emma and other celeb “models”: we are so brainwashed with celebs why should we care any longer?
Emma looks great. The male model is just an accessory. The gay one of course…pfff….
No, I’ve not become a homophobe cause even my gay friends agree!!

Off-topic: my friends are convinced Jesus Luz is gay too and just Madonna’s “play toy”. But they declare so many males gay LOL!

I love Burberry and I like the first photo with Emma holding the Burberry plaid but to be honest I really do not see what is so wonderful or special about Emma Watson. She is pretty but then so are many other young actresses, and I really don’t know if she is a good actress as I have only ever seen her in 3 of the HP movies ( I have read all of the books(never again) and I lost interest in the films), and after awhile of playing the same character for several years one can often do the character in their sleep, and I am not sure what else she has done except those films and “Desperaux”. So please tell me what is the big delio with her. I ask this in all honesty, I am not being sarcastic or snarky. If someone could explain to me why then maybe I will see it too.

I am a big Burberry fan and oh Christopher Bailey. I do like the Burberry ads every season because the tone and the mood is kind of chill. But for me Emma looks a bit older than she is 19. And the gray trench is totally in must-have list. And as I notice those boys aren’t charming as the usual Brit boys, so I guess Emma has all charm.

So if anyone has a tip about that gray trench coat, like Adriana said, I’ll willingly go bankrupt (for a month, maybe two, three tops!) to have it in my closet! It looks so… musthave-ish!

Ellington – it has everything to do with her HP character. She impersonated Hermione so well in everybody’s mind that she became Hermione. And from that point on, plus her focused self, not party-driven, smart, pretty, it all worked towards a successful image of a young promising actress, more like Natalie Portman than LiLo. Which is good. We need more Natalie Portman, Emma Watson girls, right?

Daydreamer, you’re absolutely right to be a Christopher Bailey fan! What he’s done from Burberry is downright amazing!

Adriana lol! So all the men are gay. Unconfessed, in hiding, but gay! :)) that’s so.. gay! lovely!

#5 Ellington on 06.10.09 at 7:47 am

Thank-you for trying to explain the Emma Watson mystic to me, but alas I am still not a fan. She is no Natalie Portman for me who has played a myriad of roles and characters, is well educated and informed, where as Emma is just Hermione, sorry but I still say so what. I am glad that she is not a party LiLo mess but is that how now measure talent by someone not being like a LiLo mess?

#6 kpriss on 06.10.09 at 12:55 pm

Today’s subjects tend to split between tabloids and the rest. No-tabloid-food is healthy food. Agree on Natalie Portman’s comedian portfolio but she was, not long ago, Queen Amidala… (or the little girl from Leon almost grown up). Even as eclectic as it is, her career can be subject to “too scientific” or “too mathematical” “too studied” remarks. As for Emma, everybody’s on hold, waiting for her to grow over Hermione. Like they did for her present costar – Dakota. Who’s another brilliant young generation actress yet to prove herself…

#7 Adriana on 06.10.09 at 3:22 pm

I’m questioning if Emma, already so rich and not really anything to prove anymore, she’s yet a star, can grow really naturally?

#8 Ellington on 06.10.09 at 5:04 pm

On hold for what???? Who is waiting? Emma is now an adult.
Dakota Fanning and Abigail Bresslin have already proven themselves as up and coming actors and they are still minors. And I don’t find Natalie Portman’s choices too scientific or too mathmatical? I have no idea where you derive that argument from Kpriss?
If you look at the other members of the HP cast Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint have done different roles on stage and film, All I have seen of Emma is her Hermione and her being touted as some kind of fashion icon. Like I have mentioned she is pretty but so are a lot of other young women in her field. How long does one have to wait? Really and why?
Yes Kpriss I am not impressed as she has not done anything as yet for me to really be impressed by. Also Adriana raises an interesting point of contention. I think that we will have to agree to disagree about Emma Watson for now. :)

#9 kpriss on 06.11.09 at 1:40 am

(but I’m having a blast, as always, disputing points of view with you! :X )

We still have to wait since her educational path seems to be taking her elsewhere and not in the theatrical arena. And I tend to disagree that 19-years old is an adult age, even if teenagers grow up so quickly nowadays!

I was given to understand, after some reading I’ve done a while back (I’m so sorry I can’t remember the exact source) that Natalie Portman’s Closer role (which I completely absolutely loved!) was worked out and thoroughly studied and cautiously planned with a university professor (of psychology if I’m not mistaking) because she wanted it (the character) to be troubled in a realistic kind of way. Planned troubled. Just for the record, I like Natalie Portman, as a performer, very much. As a person, I admire her privacy and tendency to live a normal, average live, not dressing in the glam-celeb-code, not giving in to the high life pressure.

And to continue setting the record straight – Emma Watson has been so affected by those who take only her physical side into consideration and praise her for being somewhat fashionable that I’m afraid she’ll never grow from this point of view. It’s too easy being fashionable when everybody (even the Kaiser) courts you. They tell you what to wear, how to pose and where to be to stay on the fashwave. I’m rather skeptical when it comes to her real fashion self. As for her acting, it could fall apart if she continues being a fashion something… (I can’t find her a true category since she’s somewhat cleverly inbetween right now).

Adriana, I doubt rich people don’t have to prove themselves anymore just because they’re rich. That’s how they become just daddy’s rich girl/boy for all their life. Au contraire, I feel it’s more challenging to see a young rich person like that trying to make a living and something out of her/himself like there wasn’t all that pile of money in the backyard just waiting to be spent!

What say you, my lovely ladies?

#10 Ellington on 06.11.09 at 6:59 am

Well there are those who are educated and talented like Jodie Foster. And those who do come from a privileged background of wealth like for example Anderson Cooper, who do something with their life rather than being a rich kid with issues. I have yet to see anything of the like from Emma. Yes I said she is an adult, legally she is at 19 (in Canada she is). As for maturity I don’t know as I am of the mind that no one really matures until they have hit 30. ; )
She is for me just a pretty young woman who has been blessed to have landed a gold mine role of playing Hermione for 7 books.
As for Natalie Portman’s “studied” performance for Closer which was fantastic. It is of no surprise that she did research into her character’s psyche many actors do. Daniel Day Lewis for example is also an an actor of the “studied” ilk.
That is what sometimes creates a rounded and realistic performance. Why would you fault/critique her for doing that?
Simply put Kpriss you think Emma Watson is simply wonderful and I do not. For me she has not done anything to merit such adoration. I do not dislike her, I am simply not impressed, until she maybe does something that is worthy of being impressed of.

#11 Adriana on 06.11.09 at 7:05 am

Oh Kpriss, this is a “lost in translation case” it’s not the money I was aiming at. Money can be a factor though to become lazy. Lazy to prove anything really. One needs fire and passion inside too for what you’re doing. But the fact that she’s yet admired and a star as well in film as fashion and has proved anything really. She’s chosen for this campaign because of her name and fame. Why else? Also HP fans grow up so there’s a new market to explore for fashion brands. Now I wish that trend would go away as much as wish the trend for trends would go away. The one season hysteria. I’m off-topic now….
Anyway I just wonder can I ever take her serious as an actress having her fashion image burned on my retina? I’ve seen her on photos clubbing in Rodarte yet. So to me she has a lot to prove. Because I’ve only seen Hermione in trailers and lots of Emma as a fashion icon. To me she’s a model in fact! You see ladies I’m a HP and also LOTR illiterate. I’ve only seen the first LOTR movie and felt asleep. Couldn’t get myself through LOTR I’ve tried that since I was like 15 and I tried HP too since the ex-husband was addicted to HP…….I tried really because I saw so many people around me being mesmerized that I thought I miss something very special!!
Back to the topic I think that the careers of some young actors in the entertainment business have not a real change to grow because all goes so fast and these people are so used up before they’ve a change to grow really I’m afraid…..It’s so obvious to me that Daniel Radcliff has real passion for acting. If you read what he’s doing with his talent yet. Maybe he’s lucky he’s not the fashion pretty boy face but has a more interesting look?
Have you any idea how I fight with your language ladies? Have I made myself clear? I love, love disputes without getting angry at each other too you see not to agree persé but it’s so interesting to learn and grow….we never should stop doing that is a firm belief here.

#12 Adriana on 06.11.09 at 7:08 am

HP magic in the air? Ellington and I were typing at the same time with so many miles between us……wow!

#13 Adriana on 06.11.09 at 7:21 am

…..and now I feel I’ve written a useless piece: I agree with Ellington. Haha, especially about the age of being an adult. (It’s 18 in the Netherlands.)
I had some doubts about Closer and wasn’t really impressed with any part really. Natalie should have doing her research, which I’m all for, with real troubled persons not with a university professor now I see what I missed in that part she came close(r) but not really….thank you Kpriss for this info.

#14 deka on 06.11.09 at 8:34 am

i love these photos!
hermione stunned me and totally the focus point
i didnt notice the men at first
i like burberry coats, but too many people have them in addition to the fact that they are insanely expensive

#15 kpriss on 06.13.09 at 12:31 am

I admire actors who do their homework further than reading the script. And even if I forced a comparison with Natalie Portman, I admit Emma Watson is not yet that perfectionist and praise worthy (and yet to prove herself big time) so I may have expressed too much enthusiasm in her direction.

As for Daniel Radcliffe he seems to be genuinely interested in really acting his way around (though that nude pictorial he did not long ago really raised my eyebrows sky high).

#16 Adriana on 06.13.09 at 6:43 am

I think Daniel looked great on that picture. It was a part of the play. It had a good reason. It was not shocking or ugly. So why raising eyebrows? Look how women are portrayed for fashion these days…..I see not much fashion in it anymore. Only the message that our mission in life is to be sexy…..Just a thought.

#17 juan rodrigues cristaldo on 08.14.09 at 7:56 pm

hello..sos la chica mas hermosa..sos mi amor platonico..noce si me vas a entender..i love you..

#18 ME on 12.21.09 at 6:52 pm

Emma looks gorgeous and even though the ads are kind of ordinary (they’re just standing there), she adds an extra flare. I love how subtle the ads are. It’s not overdone. It’s just right. And Emma does steal the show. The male models are kind of hot, but all I see is her.
