Emma Watson Is Homesick For London Fashion

Posted on

Actress and budding designer Emma Watson has mostly acclimated to her all-American, Ivy League lifestyle at Brown University, but the 19-year-old beauty reveals that there is still one thing she misses from home: London fashion. “It’s so funny because now that I’m in America, I’m more able to define it,” she told WWD. “Before, I didn’t have an awareness of another style.” The Harry Potter star, who co-hosted a party for emerging London designers on March 25th in an on-trend floral-and-lace dress by UK designer Christopher Kane, elaborated on the differences between looks on both sides of the pond. “I think [British style] has to do with the weather,” she says. “We have terrible weather. It’s very gray and drizzly so we need things to cheer us up. And I think that leads to a lot of creativity and color, and…why our designers are so innovative.” And with so much fashion experience–from modeling for Burberry campaigns to designing an eco-friendly line–the young fashionista is well on her way to becoming a style icon, thanks to her British-influenced style. “We have great vintage and we love to mix and match: high street and high fashion, vintage…and I think that really defines it as well.” Tell us: What do you think of Emma Watson’s British style?David Yi
