From being the 'best witch of her generation' in the Harry Potter universe to a United Nations Women Goodwill Ambassador, Emma Watson is truly an actress worthy to be counted as a role model for children and young adults.
She has taken the generation who grew up watching her career in an enthralling journey of portraying a character that is not afraid to be brilliant and to excel despite being a girl to bringing the character to life by striving to spread her message of feminism through different platforms.
So in light of her playing an actual Disney Princess, making another generation awed by her performance, we decided to list some of Emma's best girl boss moments.
When she wore "trash" to the red carpet
Red carpets are a big thing, especially if you're a Hollywood star. But for Emma, it is a place to prove that you can make a statement along with the glitz and glamour.
She started making a buzz in the summer of 2016 when she donned a gorgeous Calvin Klein dress at the Met Gala. The dress was made from 100% recycled materials, putting 'sustainable fashion' on the headlines of magazines everywhere. She has continued to bring attention to the cause, partnering with other labels such as Oscar De La Renta and Louis Vuitton, creating custom pieces that are made from sustainable materials that truly wow on or off the red carpet.
When she lived up to being Hermione and Belle in real life
One of her most memorable speeches about feminism, which highlights a fact that almost everyone can relate to, struck young females in the most beautiful way possible. Speaking of the idea that girls are called 'bossy' when they want to take charge but boys being given responsibilities because they need to be 'leaders,' she took a jab at society's double standards. She emphasised that girls, no matter their age, should be empowered and given opportunities to grow and realise their full potential.
She also leaves books in train stations in the US and the UK for strangers to find and enjoy. She also opened a Goodreads community called 'OurSharedShelf,' where she encourages discourse on the fiction and non-fiction literary works she chooses to share, mostly centred on a strong female character or anything that promotes empowerment and gender equality.
