The 19-year-old actress wore dark eye make-up and styled her hair in a loose up-do and she even managed to upstage the perennially glamorous Victoria Beckham, who arrived in an understated black knee-length dress. "Emma got the look just right. It would have been a big mistake to try an over the top outfit. Her dress wowed the crowds but looked sophisticated at the same time," the Daily Mail quotes an eyewitness saying.
The brand Burberry switched its fashion show to London from Milan to help celebrate 25 years of fashion in Britain. American Vogue editor Anna Wintour was among a host of leading fashionistas. Slumdog Millionaire stars Freida Pinto and Dev Patel, Agyness Deyn, actress Liv Tyler and Gwyneth Paltrow also attended the most eagerly-awaited catwalk shows of the year
Miss Watson, who is studying English Literature at Brown University in Rhode Island, took time out from university in the United States to attend the Burberry catwalk show. Miss Watson was unveiled as the new face of Burberry in June this year, joining a roster of past stars that includes Kate Moss, Rachel Weisz and Agyness Deyn. She modelled their autumn/winter 2009 collection for an estimated six-figure fee.
Earlier this month Miss Watson and her Potter co-star Daniel Radcliffe were named as the highest-grossing actors of the decade after conjuring up billions of pounds each. While Radcliffe, 20, made the studios an average of £537 million a film for the first five movies in the series, Miss Watson saw her average reach £544.88 million per film. The figures were revealed in the latest edition of the Guinness Book of World Records.
