Actress and budding designer Emma Watson has mostly acclimated to her all-American, Ivy League lifestyle at Brown University, but the 19-year-old beauty reveals that there is still one thing she misses from home: London fashion. “It’s so funny because now that I’m in America, I’m more able to define it,” she told WWD. “Before, I didn’t have an awareness of another style.” The Harry Potter star, who co-hosted a party for emerging London designers on March 25th in an on-trend floral-and-lace dress by UK designer Christopher Kane, elaborated on the differences between looks on both sides of the pond. “I think [British style] has to do with the weather,” she says. “We have terrible weather. It’s very gray and drizzly so we need things to cheer us up. And I think that leads to a lot of creativity and color, and…why our designers are so innovative.” And with so much fashion experience–from modeling for Burberry campaigns to designing an eco-friendly line–the young fashionista is well on her way to becoming a style icon, thanks to her British-influenced style. “We have great vintage and we love to mix and match: high street and high fashion, vintage…and I think that really defines it as well.” Tell us: What do you think of Emma Watson’s British style?David Yi

If what she is wearing in this picure is considered “British Style,” then it is certainly not appealing.

She looks so great there. A perfect combination of youth, class with a hint of edginess.

I love different and unique. I think we almost have to go abroad for it here in the US.
