Blah I do not like the bag, shoes or jeans. Her jacket is cute but in her hair you can definitely see her dark brunette roots. She looks so irritated while signing those autographs but other than that she seems to love the attention.

Woah it's weird seeing candid pictures of her like this.

Her outfit is very basic, I really like it. And that Chanel purse I wonder how much those go for, it's so cute!

I just like the jacket, but considering she was on a long plane ride, the casual look is understandable.

I found the interview from Parade Magazine

We’re all so grown-up!

By Emily Listfield
Published: July 8, 2007

Emma Watson sits in a posh London hotel, her slight frame encased in low-slung jeans. She is delicately pretty and preternaturally possessed for a 17-year-old—but then, she’s had a lot of practice. Watson has been world-famous since the age of 11, when she first appeared as the bossy miss know-it-all Hermione Granger, accomplice to the young wizard Harry Potter.

“It was the first audition I went on,” she says, still somehow surprised at the course her life has taken. “I had no idea of the scale of the film—the fame—or I would have been completely overwhelmed.”

The numbers are staggering. So far, J.K. Rowling’s six books about the wizards of Hogwarts have sold 325 million copies, and the four films have grossed $3.5 billion. With the July 11 release of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (the fifth film in the series) and the July 21 release of the long-awaited final book, those numbers will surely skyrocket.

With Hermione, Rowling has created an enduring role model for girls. “There are too many stupid girls in the media,” Watson observes, her dark eyes lighting up. “Hermione’s not scared to be clever. I think sometimes really smart girls dumb themselves down a bit, and that’s bad.” Watson admits that there is quite a lot of herself in the confident and bookish Hermione. “I’m a bit of a feminist,” she proclaims. “I’m very competitive and challenging.” Though she resented it at first, Watson has come to appreciate the emphasis on Hermione’s brains rather than her appearance. “When I was 9 or 10, I would get really upset when they tried to make me look geeky, but now I absolutely love it. I find it’s so much pressure to be beautiful. Hermione doesn’t care what she looks like. She’s a complete tomboy.”

Though Watson is far from a geek, she is a serious student. She credits strong family ties with helping her avoid the potential pitfalls such early success might engender. “I have a really secure network of family and friends,” she says. “My parents are both lawyers, and they have no interest in being part of this industry.” Her mother and father are divorced, and Emma is the oldest of seven siblings between the various blended families. She lives with her mother in Oxford, where she attends an all-girls school. “People can’t understand why I don’t want to be a full-time actress,” she says, “but school life keeps me in touch with my friends. It keeps me in touch with reality. It makes me feel normal. Let’s be honest: I have enough money never to have to work again, but I would never want that. Learning keeps me motivated.”

Still, the balance is not always easy. “It’s really strange, trying to fit into both places,” she says. “At school, I’m supposed to be a kid; and filming, I’m supposed to be an adult. I’m a teenager—I’m meant to be carefree and irresponsible and rebellious—but I have a quite serious job. Sometimes it’s hard to deal with.” This tough balancing act led Watson to hesitate before signing up for the last two Harry Potter movies. At the time, media speculation was rampant that she was playing hard-to-get in an attempt to increase her paycheck (rumored to be approximately $4 million a picture). But the truth was much more in keeping with Watson’s reflective nature.

“People underestimate what a big decision this was for me,” says Watson. “This is the next three or four years of my life. Being in the spotlight and the lack of freedom are the sort of things that held me back. People will see that as ungrateful, but you never know until you’ve walked in someone else’s shoes. I love it, and that’s why I’m back, but I had to make it work for me.” In the end, the pluses outweighed the minuses.

“I have too many friends on the set, and I love Hermione too much,” Watson says. “I couldn’t see anyone else playing her. It would have killed me. There’s so much of me in her.”
Once filming of the new movie began, Watson quickly recovered her enthusiasm. “I remembered how amazing this all is,” she says. “I love this one. It’s more complex. It feels more mature. Watching Dan [Radcliffe, as Harry Potter] and Rupert [Grint, as Ron Weasley], I thought, ‘Wow, we’re all so grown-up!’”

In fact, her two co-stars have provided a unique support system. “You can’t really explain to someone what this experience is like,” Watson says. “I’m glad that we have each other. I would have been so lonely if it was just about one kid.” The three have gone from rambunctious children to teens dealing with early romantic fumblings both onscreen and off. “When I was younger, they used to tease me,” she adds. “And now they’re quite protective.” Watson insists there has never been any intramural dating. She is said to be seeing teen rugby player Tom Ducker, but she politely refuses to discuss it. This is a girl determined to handle fame on her own terms.

Recently, Watson watched as her co-stars made great efforts to break out of their roles. Most famously, Radcliffe appeared nude in a London stage version of Equus. (Take that, Harry Potter!) Though Watson would like to try different parts, for now it is not her highest priority. “ I really haven’t been looking,” she admits, “because between the films and my education, I’m just so busy.” Eventually, she would like to star in a period drama or sing in a musical, but it will have to fit around her school schedule.

In the meantime, while the rest of the world is immersed in Harry Potter mania this summer, Watson will have a much-needed vacation before filming of the next installment begins. When the last Harry Potter movie hits theaters, Watson will be 20 years old—a veteran for half of her life in one of the most celebrated cultural juggernauts ever. She realizes the chances are good that nothing she does will ever be as big. “I won’t know what to do with myself when it ends. It will be the weirdest thing ever!” she exclaims. She looks away, lost in thought at the strangeness of it all. Then, as dusk falls in London, Watson slips her bare feet into her soft suede moccasins and gratefully heads home to her family.

He, never would've pictured her going there.

I like her outfit, just wish she'd smarten up her hairstyle.

Hee, candids!

I like the top and pants, but not the shoes or bag. Maybe the shoes would've been better with another outfit, though. The hair's alright, very Just A Lazy Shopping Day...
