Emirates Woman’s latest cover star, Emma Watson talks style, travel and the beauty essential she won’t leave home without…

My favourite fragrance is… Trésor Midnight Rose by Lancôme. People always notice when I wear it, because it has an unusual and distinctive scent.

I enjoy visiting… places at night. It’s much more romantic; everything looks prettier somehow. Maybe it’s because the light seems so warm and soft.

My holiday beauty essentials are… blusher, because I am English and pale, and it makes me look instantly healthier without looking like I’m plastered in make-up. I always have moisturiser with me whenever I travel by plane, and I carry perfume everywhere I go.

I never leave the house without… sunscreen! I’ll always have a minimum SPF 15 on my face if I leave the house.

My favourite designer is… Burberry. If I could wear any label forever it would be this one. You can’t go wrong with a classic trench and a pair of jeans.


I’m happiest when… I’m in the English countryside. I was brought up in Oxford, UK, in the country, and it’s my favourite place to be.

On juggling studying and acting… I did two terms at Oxford at the beginning of the year and then I was filming in LA, New Orleans, Iceland and New York. So I’ve done a lot of travelling and I’ve been working hard.

One of my favourite travel spots is… Paris; it makes me very nostalgic. It’s where I was born, and lots of my family and friends still live there. My top places to visit are the Art Deco Café de Flore, and the historic Shakespeare and Company bookshop on the Left Bank, and I love to walk along the Seine.

On her latest films… I just wrapped on a film called Noah, which I did with Darren Aronofsky, and the Bling Ring with Sofia Coppola (out this month). I play the role of Nicki, who lives in LA and is a Juicy Couture-wearing kind of girl. You could imagine her as one of the Kardashians.
