Five famous English designers were asked to create sustainable dresses for The Green Carpet Challenge, and since Emma Watson is known to be an eco queen, she was picked to showcase the designs. The actress covers The Edit, and she looks glam in each of the five dresses that were made for the occasion, and will be sold exclusively on net-a-porter.com: Christopher Kane, Victoria Beckham, Erdem, Burberry Prorsum and Roland Mouret. “I have to go all in. I just want things to be perfect. If I’m going to put my name on it, I want it to be something I love,” the former Hermione told the magazine when she showed up for the photo shoot. And you can tell that she gave her best for it – the photos are spotless. Fair trade in fashion is a topic of interest for her, as she studied it in uni. Even though she was on the red carpet since age 11 – at which time she would raid her mom's and grandmother's closets for dresses – Watson has always felt that there's weren't enough eco-conscious designs to choose from. And while she's willing to sacrifice her comfort for red carpet events, the 23 year old says not the same is true in her everyday style: she takes comfort before anything else.

Some of you may remember that in 2010, Watson collaborated with fair trade brand People Tree, designing their first collection. One year later, she did a capsule collection for Alberta Ferretti, in the same sustainable manner. “We don’t support slave labor in this country, so we shouldn’t support those conditions in other countries. I can’t wrap my head around why ethical clothing is a speciality and not a base standard. Why is it special to have something you know wasn’t made under terrible conditions by a 12-year-old girl for 20 pence an hour?” the Bling Ring actress says.

A Harry Potter spinoff is on the way. What are the original actors doing now?

J.K. Rowling will be penning a new movie for Warner Bros.

"Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 2" New York Premiere - Arrivals

July 2011 marked a sad time for all Harry Potter fans, who thought they were watching the last of their favorite series. Fortunately – or unfortunately – the bestselling author, J.K. Rowling decided to take the wheel of the fictional world once again. Warner Bros just announced that they’re working with the author on another few movies based on the “Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them”, a book within the book. Kind of like The Hobbit did with Lord of the Rings. Rowling will write the scripts herself, following the adventures of Newt Scamander, the author of the above named book. “Although it will be set in the worldwide community of witches and wizards where I was so happy for seventeen years, ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ is neither a prequel nor a sequel to the Harry Potter series, but an extension of the wizarding world,” Rowling says. The story will be set 70 years before Harry’s time in Hogwarts, and will subsequently include none of our favorite main characters. In case you miss them, here’s what they’re up to now:

Harry Potter

Daniel Radcliffe aka Harry Potter: The actor has been trying hard to put his Harry Potter days behind him and make a name for himself. He took off his round wizard glasses and put on many Hollywood and theater roles. Since 2011, he could be seen in The Woman in Black, Robot Chicken, A Young Doctor’s Notebook, Kill Your Darlings, Horns and The F Word. “I wouldn’t be sitting here talking to you it wasn’t for Harry Potter. I’m under no illusions,” he recently said at the Toronto Film Festival. And according to Perez Hilton, Radcliffe has the hots for Katy Perry!

Emma Watson aka Hermione Granger: The actress is probably the most prominent face of the whole cast. We’ve seen her in My Week with Marilyn, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, The Bling Ring, and This is the End since the end of the HP series, and she’s done a great job in all of them. In 2013, Emma is GQ’s Woman of the Year, and she’s preparing to take on a new role, that of a suicidal author in Your Voice in My Head. While trying to leave her Hermione reputation behind, Emma says: “I’m prepared to wait it out. If it takes five years, it takes five years. If it takes more time . . . I’m here for the long haul.”

Rupert Grint aka Ron Weasly: Rupert has been taking on roles in Into the White, Super Clyde, The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman and CBGB. Apparently, he’s also lined up for a new screen adaptation of Macbeth. Rupert is named “ginger hero” by FHM Magazine, who put him on the cover of their Collections A/W 2013 Style Manual, and interview him about going “back to normal when all you’ve ever known is Harry Potter”.

Emma Watson is cute in her signature Ray Ban sunglasses, a white dress and ankle boots. Nothing new here. But on the cover of W Magazine this June/July, Watson is unrecognizable, with glamorous curls, stockings and a floral blazer that marks the waist. The actress recalls being a very serious child, and not wanting to grow up. Sexy as the cover photo may be, Watson says she was never in a rush to be a woman, and sex appeal was the last thing on her mind growing up. In her latest flick, Bling Ring, she plays a girl so committed to celebrities, that she's willing to steal and more. “With Nicki, I was really taking on a character. Some of her lines are so crazy and absurd—making sure she wasn’t a parody was a challenge,” Watson says about the role. “The iconic detail of Nicki is her tramp stamp. It’s a lotus flower, a Buddhist-like symbol just above her butt crack. Really classy!” the actress laughs.

Emma Watson is proud to have won a People’s Choice Award for favorite dramatic movie actress for the role in The Perks of Being a Wallflower. The 22 year old actress plays the role of Sam, a rebel and musical teenager who becomes the object of affection for the main character, Charlie (Logan Lerman). The story takes place in the 90s, and Watson does a great job moving from the timeless Harry Potter to contemporary, dramatic stories. Watson had a funny incident at the airport recently, which she quickly tweeted about: “Passport control:’unaccompanied minor?’ Me:’sorry?’ Passport control:’where is ur guardian?’ Me:’I'm 22!!!!!!!’ #neverwearingabackpackagain,” the actress said, being mistaken for a child. Does she have the recipe for eternal youth? Either way, Watson looks stunning in her newest fashion campaign for Lancome’s Spring 2013 collection. That’s not to see we don’t like her everyday, natural look – as pictured above in a trench coat, hipster hat and Ray Ban sunglasses.

A fan of Ray Ban sunglasses, Emma Watson doesn’t miss an opportunity to show off her collection. How can one resist when the sunglasses have her name, Emma, a cute cat eye shape and soft color versions? Here, Watson is wearing them with skinny jeans and a long sleeve, ballet flats and a cream bag – perfectly casual and age appropriate. The 22 year old, who plans on returning to college next year, decided to cut the ties with the fashion industry, and focus solely on her acting career. After ads for Burberry, Lancome and Free People, the actress has lost passion for such activities: “It was fun when I was younger, but I don`t think it will be quite as much part of my future, honestly. Now that I know acting is the thing I want to do, that`s more where my passion is and my focus is. I still find fashion very interesting, but it`s quite full-on. I am finding more and more that I don`t want to wear a dress and heavy make-up… I want to wear jeans more. It`s quite intense to do it all the time,” Watson said. That’s too bad, because this girl is the type that can really make a dress!
