It seems these post-Harry Potter days are equally magical for Miss Emma Watson. We’re less than a week away from our MTV Movie Awards pre-show peek at the trailer for The Perks of Being a Wallflower, and Entertainment Weekly is ALREADY giving us our first taste of Watson’s NEXT film, The Bling Ring. With Bling, Sofia Coppola adapts the true story of a group of teenagers who looted the homes of stars like Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan for the screen, and the costume design for the film is appropriately louche for these fame-obsessed Los Angeles bandits.
Emma plays a character named Nicki who, from the looks of this first look image, is likely the ringleader of this band of thieves (which includes American Horror Story’s Taissa Farmiga). For her role, Emma is styled in long, chocolate locks with a deep side part – a departure from her Twiggy-esque pixie cut. She takes center stage in an immaculate, white fur vest worn over an all-black ensemble. The outfit is taken to over-the-top L.A. luxe levels with choice accessories including over-sized peeper-hiding sunglasses, the Birkin “It” bag, and an icy frappuccino in hand. What do you think of Emma Watson’s The Bling Ring look?
