    Sure she's stylish, but what she really wants to do is design.

    Though she was barely 10 when she landed the now-legendary role of Hermione Granger in the ever-popular Harry Potter series, 19-year-old Emma Watson has certainly done some growing up of late, especially in regards to fashion.

    The proof is in the upcoming spread for Teen Vogue's August issue, where she poses in platform Burberry boots, overflowing tulle dresses, and hot leopard tights. Oh, the interview also mentions that she's been wearing so much Chanel lately that she's become friendly with Karl Lagerfeld. (Oh is that all it takes? Sheesh, we'll get right on it!) "'It's kind of my lucky brand,'" she explains to Teen Vogue, though she also highlights other brands she's been wearing like Miu Miu and under-the-radar U.K. talent William Tempest.

    It's this kind of of fashion savvy that's gotten her a lot of press in the industry, most recently for becoming the face of Burberry (we tracked down images of the new campaign here). She's taking over the mantle from serious modeling talents like Agyness Deyn and Kate Moss, so clearly the gal's got chops. (Or maybe Burberry was just trying to beat Karl to the punch.)

    And now, there are rumors that the dewy star will be launching her own fashion effort--a clothing line geared toward stylish teens, and is seeking advice from high-profile style pals, like the aforementioned Lagerfeld. Granted, this rumor apparently started on News of the World, which isn't always the most reliable, but if the rumors are true, we're pretty excited to see the results. A fashion endeavor by a starlet that's both timely and age-appropriate; Well played, dear Watson.
