Emma Watson plays Hermione in the Harry Potter films. Need we say any more?
Not only is she a massively successful actress, but Emma has been the face of Burberry for the last two years. And as if that wasn’t enough, she’s proved she’s more than just a pretty face by getting straight As at school (in between filming!) and going on to study at Brown university in the US.
So she’s a cool girl, but why is she a Global Cool girl?
Well, Emma’s been expanding her fashion credentials by teaming up with eco-friendly label People Tree. She’s worked with them – unpaid – as a ‘creative director’ on three collections – saying of the collaboration: “Fashion is a great way to empower people and give them skills; rather than give cash to charity you can help people by buying the clothes they make and supporting things they take pride in. I think young people like me are becoming increasingly aware of the humanitarian issues surrounding fast fashion and want to make good choices but there aren’t many options out there.”.
