Spotted: 'Harry Potter' Star Emma Watson Takes New York

Every day a multitude of stars wander through the halls of MTV News to talk about their latest projects and goof around with our intrepid correspondents. But sometimes we catch stars elsewhere, and that's why we put together Spotted!, a daily compendium of stars in the wild.

Though Daniel Radcliffe plays the title character in the "Harry Potter" film series, the true breakout star of the films is Emma Watson. The 20-year-old actress has managed to spin the role of Hermione Granger into a complicated, versatile young woman, one capable of strength, vulnerability, beauty and brains all within a single look. She's an excellent actress and something of a style icon, which is why she has been so busy during the push for the New York premiere of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1." Before she hit the red carpet (where MTV News was broadcasting live), she stopped by "The Late Show With David Letterman" to chat about the movie, and this morning she appeared on both "Today" and "Live With Regis and Kelly" to do some more promotion. Throughout her spin through Manhattan, she has retained the same kind of style and grace that she has become known for, and even though she is interested in taking some time off now that the movies are finished, she'll remain a star.

She wasn't the only favorite making the rounds, as Christina Aguilera and Cher embraced on the red carpet for the premiere of "Burlesque" and Taylor Swift paid a visit to Japan to spread the word about her new album Speak Now.
