‘If not me, who? If not now, when?’ /Emma Watson/
Although everybody associates Emma Watson immediately with Harry Potter, she has became so much more than a child actress.
She was born in 1990 in Paris but was raised in England. She got the iconic role of Hermione Granger in 1999. After the series she played in The Bling Ring, The Perks of being a wallflower, The circle and most recently Belle in Beauty and the Beast. She made sure that Belle herself was an inventor in the movie, not just her father.
She graduated from Brown University in 2014 and now has a degree in English literature.
In the last 4 years she focused on being a feminist activist and became an ambassador for UN Women, the HeForShe campaign and even has time to set up the Our shared shelf website for encouraging people to read more.
She worked with Burberry, Lancome and took part in the People Tree’s 2010 fall collection.
In the Met Gala of 2016 Emma wore a Calvin Klein dress that was made from recycled plastic bottles.
Emma always makes sure to choose her clothes according to the brands’ main purpose. Fairtrade and the environment are very important for her.

She likes wearing the classic black and white combo for red carpet events.
Serious and pretty at the same time.
Oxford shoes look fabulous on a British girl.
Emma wants to send a message with her choice of clothes.
To celebrate today’s #internationalwomensday I’ll be curating @natgeo’s Instagram feed, selecting and sharing powerful images taken by National Geographic’s emerging female photographers around the world. Women photographers are often under-represented and under-celebrated, so I’m thrilled to mark this day by profiling the talented female story-tellers and image-makers that are working hard to build empathy across borders x #iwd2018 #timesup
