Her hair may be long, or it may be short. She may be clad in little more than a Nina Ricci negligee dress and a chair. She may have 18 new movies out, or just one flick called The Perks of Being a Wallflower.
It doesn't matter, because Emma Watson is never, ever going to escape the Harry Potter legacy.
How do we know? Look at the terrific ensemble the 22-year-old actress is wearing on the October cover of Glamour. Behold, a Zadig & Voltaire jacket, Nina Ricci dress, Stella McCartney bra and a Salvatore Ferragamo necklace.
But what's the headline? "Hey, Awesome Outfit, Emma"? "Love the Way You're Growing Out Your Hair, Emma"? "Hope That Chair Is Comfy, Emma"?
"Emma Grows Way Up," the mag trumpets. "And Talks Style, Dating and Going to School (Not Hogwarts)."
We'd much rather hear about, well, anything else, but there's the rub. Stay classy, Glamour.
