Emma Watson: From Classmate to Fashion Plate

Movie stardom is no easy thing for a young lady — but when it comes to handling fame gracefully, Harry Potter’s Emma Watson seems to have a leg up on her ankle-braceleted peers. As promising an actress as she is, one gets the impression that playing the series’ spunky, whip-smart Hermione Granger isn’t that much of stretch for the 20-year-old, who’s somehow managed to magically ward off all negative publicity on her journey from child stardom to an Ivy League education and fashion-magazine deification. In this comprehensive time-lapse slideshow, we follow her down the long red carpet, from 2001’s Sorcerer’s Stone to last year’s Half-Blood Prince. (Also, see our slideshows of Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint.)
