Hello Watson fans! Last night, Emma appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live to promote “Beauty and The Beast”. A kind soul uploaded the entire interview onto youtube, and you can watch it below! I have also added 40 gorgeous high quality photos of Emma arriving for the show to our gallery. We will hopefully have stills and HD screen captures soon, stay tuned…
As you can tell (if you can’t – refresh your browser!), we have a new layout here at I Heart Watson. With the many daily updates this “Beauty and The Beast” promotion tour are bringing us, we figured you were all probably sick of the old one by now 😉 The gorgeous new design are created by our friend Nicole, and we really love it. It’s something completely different from our previous look, and we really hope you all like it just as much as we do! Feedback is as always welcome, we’d love to hear your thoughts in the comment section.
To come with the new design, we’ve replaced the old thumbnails in our photo gallery with larger versions. We hope this will make browsing the gallery easier for everyone! Once the BATB promotion tour is over, we will also start creating many information, multimedia and interactive pages here at the site. Many great things are coming up, and we are excited to share it all with you! Keep checking back…
Following our post about Miss Watson’s beauty secrets, we now have another article on her style! This time brought to us by Coveteur, and again we’re gifted with some stunning new photos of Emma. The main article can be found below, the new photos in our gallery – and make sure to head over to the original source through this link for all the photos from her closet. Enjoy!
FYI: We are currently changing the size of all the thumbnails in the gallery, so for the next hour or two they will look a bit stretched. The photos are still viewable, and everything will look perfect later tonight! The main site here might also look a bit off, as we are in the middle of changing our layout… Stay tuned for our brand new look!
COVETEUR | The “Beauty & the Beast” lead gets real(istic) about finding designers on Instagram and how that impulse fast-fashion buy is destroying the planet.

Here’s a fun game to play: we talk sustainable fashion, and you try to stay awake through to the end of the sentence. Still there?
We’re kidding, of course. But we’d be lying if we said that for too long, conscious fashion has had a reputation for being not just a snooze, but something best paired with patchouli—the furthest possible thing from what you think of when it comes to mega-wattage red carpets or Parisian ateliers.
Despite the leaps and bounds that’ve been made, making not just the urgency of sustainable dressing clear, but making it look good, is a challenge all too familiar to Emma Watson. “I’ve wanted to move away from calling anything ‘green,’ ‘eco,’ or ‘sustainable,’” Watson explained as we had our way with the contents of her closet during a recent trip to London. “Because those words are very non-descriptive in most ways! It’s very difficult to know what they actually mean.”
While the actor’s been a vocal proponent of conscious dressing for years, she knows part of the power of her platform lies in not just telling, but showing. Enter @the_press_tour, the dedicated Instagram account behind her (scrupulously certified c/o EcoAge) sustainable wardrobe for her ongoing Beauty & the Beast publicity blitz. There’s shot after shot of Watson in far-flung, glamorous locales, from Paris to Shanghai, all with the requisite wardrobe to match. And while the glitzy images might be what draw thousands in, what separates Watson’s recent appearances is the captions that accompany them, like the one detailing how the powder blue Emilia Wickstead princess gown happens to be made from recycled fabrics and by an all-female team, or the Louis Vuitton dress made from recycled polyester created from plastic bottles.
Before it all went down, we got a sneak peek into the heavy lifting that’s gone into Watson’s recent efforts in London. After all, what better time than your turn as the lead in a looong-anticipated blockbuster live-action Disney film to really walk the proverbial walk and make some noise about something you really believe in?
Into The Gloss just shared an article where Emma reveals all about her beauty routine! It’s a good read, and it came with two gorgeous photos of our Belle, photographed by Olivia Richardson in London on December 16, 2016. You can read her article below (and check out the original source for some beautiful photos of the products), and the new photos are in our gallery!
INTO THE GLOSS | “There’s something about looking into someone else’s makeup bag—it’s such an intimate glimpse into their personality somehow. When I was a kid and working on Harry Potter, I would always ask the makeup artists, or just anyone, ‘Can I see your makeup bag?’ I loved exploring that way. And my other favorite thing was, while I was having my hair and makeup done, to clean and organize people’s makeup bags. So I would sit there and clean every product and put it all back together again. Anyway, it’s been a passion of mine for a long time. Recently I’ve become super interested in sustainability and transparency and understanding what I’m putting on my face and on my body. It’s been a fun little mission to see how far I can go with it… Can I create a completely sustainable wardrobe? Can I dress sustainably on the red carpet? Can I put together a hair and makeup look with completely organic products? I needed to figure out if it was achievable or not. You can’t talk the talk if you don’t walk the walk. So that’s what I’ve been discovering over the past couple of years.
At first, I didn’t really know the answer. I was doing all this research and came across Content, a cute little shop on the Marylebone High Street. Every week, I would go back and try something different, until one of the girls who works there asked if I wanted to meet Imelda Burke, who runs the store. So I went for lunch with Imelda and we became really close friends. Now I’m lucky enough to be able to text her and ask about any product I find—if she knows if it’s organic or natural or clean and all that. She actually just came out with her own book, which is amazing because she’s just done an insane amount of research. The other way I find out about a lot of my products is on Instagram. I just keep a beady eye out really… I’m like a magpie running around trying out new products. Most of my routine keeps to an 80/20 philosophy because it’s very difficult to be a complete purist, especially when working in the film industry. You can end up driving yourself a bit mad and make it more stressful than it should be. Sometimes you just need a mascara to be waterproof and that’s OK.Read More
Hello Watson fans! The 2017 Elle Style Awards were held in the UK last night, and as expected our girl was in attendance. Emma made quite an impression at the event – stunning everyone in a floor lenght gown designed by Dave Bennet. We love this look on her! However, she did not attend the red carpet unfortunately, resulting in only 4 photos from the backroom. But those can be found in our gallery in gorgeous high quality! We hope to have more up soon, so make sure to keep checking back.
Emma took home the woman of the year award in recognition of her acting career and campaigning for gender equality, which she most definitely deserved! We are so proud of her, and all the hard work she’s been doing the last year – congratulations Emma. You can read parts of her acceptance speech below…
Emma Watson was crowned Woman of the Year at the Elle Style Awards in London on Monday night. The grown-up Harry Potter star took to the stage in a stunning strapless floor-length white gown with a tree design as she collected her latest accolade, awarded to her for her humanitarian efforts.
“This is not a year we will allow yourself to be silent,” Watson announced to rapturous applause. “This is the year that women’s voices are heard.” “I’m not sure I deserve it really, but I’ll take it,” the humble star added. It’s such an honour.”
Watson, 26, announced that she’s about to embark on a busy period promoting her new film Beauty and the Beast, in which she plays beauty Belle, and she revealed the Elle award has set her up as she prepares to become an international Disney star.
“It feels like I’m at the end of the harbour, ready to set off on my journey and it’s a nice wave from the British shores,” she smiled.
She was also thrilled to receive the award from journalist and feminist Caitlin Moran, adding, “It’s the dream. I read her books over about four or five years ago and I couldn’t stop laughing and crying. To have her presenting me an award tonight is beyond lovely.”
Watson earned the prize in part for her work on behalf of gender equality with the United Nations Women’s HeForShe campaign. She explained that Caitlin had been a big help as an adviser for her modern-day take on feminism.
“Caitlin has a certain resilience which I find particularly inspiring. She had this much bigger bird’s eye view than I did at the time of some of the things I was struggling with. The kind of perspective I have and the longevity she has, kind of felt very steadying.” [Source]
