Emma Watson’s GQ U.K. cover look may be bewitching, but it’s a far cry from her days as Hermione Granger.

In fact, her look recalls another iconic film heroine: Julia Roberts in 1990’s Pretty Woman.

Though most of us had thought the two-piece dress, joined at the navel with a metal ring, was a piece of movie history, Watson revives it — and makes it her own by pairing it with Ben-Amun rubber bangles and some saucy faux tattoos. She leaves Roberts’s memorable blonde wig behind, but replaces it with one of her own; Watson’s pixie cut hasn’t quite grown out to those great lengths yet.

But for those worried that clean-cut star is losing it, you can rest easy: Watson is dressed as her spoiled, sticky-fingered character in the upcoming The Bling Ring, based on the true story of five teens who committed numerous celeb burglaries in 2008 and 2009.

Gorgeous women committing crimes in Beverly Hills? Seems like not much has changed since the Pretty Woman days after all!

Tell us: What do you think of Watson’s throwback cover look?

Photoshop much? Her neck looks odd!

Patimelt on

It sure does. She also looks too young to be wearing that….I don’t know much about her, but she looks about 14

Donna on

Her right hip area looks weird too…Shes such a pretty girl..Why need the wig?

Dee on

I didn’t even recognize her thanks to overuse of Photoshop. There’s a time and place for airbrushing. This was not it.

CLC on

She has the wig on because she’s in character for The Bling Ring… Did you read the article…?

LOL! on

She’s a great actor, so glad that she’s continued to find work after being “Hermoine” for so many years. She looks amazing, personally I recognized her right away and didn’t think the photo was too re-touched at all.

Emma looks great all the time – she is also so much more classy and educated than those so-called Hollywood starlets (Lohan, Hudgens, Bynes, etc.). who are not going to amount to much of anything.

Heather on

She’d be the perfect Anna for the 50 Shades movie. A natural beauty and great actress!

Jordan on

She looks 12

sam on

she’s almost 23 years old.

Kasey on

She’s nearly 23 folks. Just because she is remembered as Hermione doesn’t mean she has to stay like that. She may look 12 or 14 to some people, but that doesn’t mean she can’t wear that. Besides, she was in character for her upcoming movie.

Lisa on

Love her!
