Emma Watson's Grown-Up Look: Love It or Hate It?

Emma Watson performed magic worthy of her Harry Potter character Hermione Granger at a dinner in London last night to honor Chanel artistic director Karl Lagerfeld. The 17-year-old star seemed to magically grow up in before our eyes, in classic head-to-toe Chanel and sophisticated ruby lips. We love that Emma chose such an elegant ensemble for the event, but we want to know what you think. Tell us: Do you like Emma’s chic, adult look? Or would you prefer it if she dressed more like a teen?

I hate it! It looks like she is wearing her mothers clothrs & playing in her mothers makeup! I like her hair though!

I absolutely love it, but if i were to make one change iu would probably go without the tights.

The way she dressed looks great on her but the red lipstick has to GO-very few people can pull this intense color off and on such a young girl it creates very unappropriate image.

She looks like someone’s grandmother. I’m 34 y/o, and I wouldn’t wear that outfit. She’s a beautiful, young lady. I think that she should have worn the dress without the jacket. If it’s a skirt, she should have worn a different top.

the outfit is gorgeous and would look great on her if she were a bit older. i love that she’s trying out a different, more sophisticated style, but she should just have fun being a teen for the moment.

I’m so glad to see a young star not dressing in skimpy, stripper-like clothing! She looks very classy. I love it, and I think it sets a good example–girl or woman, you can look attractive without looking cheap. Good for her!

I think the outfit is great, but the lipstick is a bit too severe (and thus makes her look to old), and though her hair looks great, this mature outfit, calls for a more fun, maybe slightly messy up-do and bare legs (skirt is long enough so that it’s not, you know…) to make her look a little bit more age appropriate. Still, a great style choice, a million times better than what other young stars are wearing these days.

Someone should remind Emma that 16 doesn’t last forever. Why dress like a 40 year old before your time?

I like it. I don’t know why people are so critical of it, Mischa Barton basically rocked this look when she first became popular due to The O.C. in 2003, and she was 17. I think people have more of a problem because Emma looks younger than Mischa did at that age and we’ve seen her grow up in front of us more so than Mischa. But she looks cute and sophisticated.

Your photo is bad; her body seems to hover.

She does look older. I kinda wish she’d wait to look older, but it is classy.

You spelled the last name wrong. “Granger”
