She’s almost into her 20s. Emma looks like a fairytale princess, not a wizard at the London premiere of Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince.

In 2010, Emma was named the new face of Burberry. For the Metropolitan Museum Ball, she wore one of their classically cut white gowns.

Later on that year, gasps were heard around the world when Emma appeared in a pixie cut at the London premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1. After she cut off her hair, she posted to a note on her Facebook  page, “Dear all. Cut my hair off a few days ago… Feels incredible. I love it. I’ve wanted to do this for years and years; it’s the most liberating thing ever. Hope you like. Big love from Emma x.” It may have been a shock to one and all to see her without her long locks, but we have to admit she’s glorious looking with the cropped cut. At the New York premiere of the movie (photo below) the juxtaposition of the slinky gown and short hair is spectacular.

In a beaded tulle gown by Oscar de la Renta, Emma says goodbye to Harry Potter  at the London premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. Is it any wonder looking at her, that she always makes the best dressed lists?
