A new kind of Hollywood Starlet

"The less you reveal the more people can wonder." 

I love Emma Watson. I always have. Although I have to admit it took me a few years and few really slow weekends to actually watch her in the Harry Potter series. But I didn't fall in love with Emma through her portrayal of know it all Hermione,  I fell in love with the Emma off screen. Down to earth, devoted to education, witty, a style icon, and she's barely legal. As Emma has emerged into mainstream media I have always been impressed with her personal take on style. She never seems to follow a trend, always ahead of the curve. This radiant beauty emits a sophistication well beyond her years. Now in a new article she shows just how wise  she really is. 

 "I find the whole concept of being ‘sexy’ embarrassing and confusing. If I do an interview with photographs people desperately want to change me - dye my hair blonder, pluck my eyebrows, give me a fringe. Then there’s the choice of clothes. I know everyone wants a picture of me in a mini-skirt. But that’s not me. I feel uncomfortable. I’d never go out in a mini-skirt. It’s nothing to do with protecting the Hermione image. I wouldn’t do that. Personally, I don’t actually think it’s even that sexy. What’s sexy about saying, ‘I’m here with my boobs out and a short skirt, have a look at everything I’ve got?’ My idea of sexy is that less is more. The less you reveal the more people can wonder. - Emma Watson

Thank you Emma Watson for being more than just an ambitious girl looking for attention through trashy clothes. Modest truly IS Hottest.
