When you think of cowgirl-chic fashion, several celebrities probably come to mind immediately. Dolly Parton, obviously. Or maybe her goddaughter Miley Cyrus, especially with her recent MTV Unplugged wardrobe. But you prooobably don't think of Emma Watson...ever. The brainy British actress is more Shakespeare than Stagecoach, for sure. But she totally has us fooled on her new Elle cover, where she looks as comfortable in her Western-inspired outfits as any ranch hand we've ever seen (which, granted, isn't many, but go with us here). She IS still Emma Watson, though, so of course she mixes her signature poise and style with the subtle country feel of the shoot. She starts with a double denim exas tuxedo (designer-made, natch), and the inside photos feature even more down-home flair.

There's denim and snakeskin galore, plus scads of Old West accessories, from a Chanel cowboy hat to Rupert Sanderson boots. And her pigtails and freckles? Darn tootin' adorable. Emma might not be branding cattle or lassoing little doggies anytime soon (Versace is better suited for other, cleaner activities), but she certainly has the cowgirl steez down pat.
