Emma Watson: “Fashion can project an unobtainable image that’s dangerously unhealthy”

481762091_10 - Emma Watson: "Fashion can project an unobtainable image that’s dangerously unhealthy"

On the pressures of looking perfect:

As a younger woman, that pressure got me down, but I’ve made my peace with it. With airbrushing and digital manipulation, fashion can project an unobtainable image that’s dangerously unhealthy. I’m excited about the aging process. I’m more interested in women who aren’t perfect. They’re more compelling.

… says Emma.

More of her in this sexy white dress next!

She looks quite petite, rather than skinny. I think she’s quite a beautiful example of being thin, strong and soft without being/looking skinny…quite a desirable balance if you ask me. While I disagree with terms like perfection because it suggests “the best” above all else and there are others with very different body types who have too quite desirable proportions and balance of angles, musculature and body fat that create such an overall desirable form (I.e. Elle Macpherson), I’m 5’2and petitely boned too…Emma’s face and bod is health-fitspiration for any female, esp the young if you ask me

I strongly disagree. I live in England, I am just a few months younger than she is and I have to say she looks very much our age, especially considering the light make-up.

Most of the girls who happen to look “older” tend to be the ones who wear a little too much make-up.

Well, she has been looking pretty thin herself lately. Not here in these pics, but in others. I thought she had lost a ton of weight, but I guess it just depends on the clothing she is wearing.

Perfect herself.
Is that carpet supposed to be water? They’re walking on water… Subliminal messages much? Ha jk

that carpet’s actually really cool haha

Ah so you look perfect now, Emma? Hehe just kidding, I completely understand the quote and get what she is saying.

Plus I think she looks great ( as always …).

I can’t help but be super drawn to her, I’m not sure what it is but her whole look plus her public image (the way she presents herself intellectually) just works for me.

Nice little waist and elegant dress! Not a fan of her though and I confess I don’t get what people find about her face, but overall I’ve nothing against her, she looks like she has her head on her shoulder.

Oh please. She’s just rehashing the same old PC BS that everyone else says. Let’s take her comments one by one: 1) I love how celebrities always admit to wanting to be thin in the past, but never in the present. It’s like it’s shameful to admit that you want to look thin. But in reality, the majority of women do admire the thin look, and if they give up on seeking it, it’s only because it’s unattainable for them, not because they no longer want it deep down inside. 2) People need to stop blaming photoshop for creating “unrealistic”… Read more »

Whut? In the second one, it’s kinda the opposite from what she says in this one (-or maybe I am just dumb and don’t understand it ). And did she give the example of Keira Knightley? Because she is not even 30, so the aging part really still needs to begin…. (And of the point, I honestly think Knightley was at her prettiest in the pirates of the carribean – she was around 18….).

I not quite sure what you mean? Do you think she would look better with more kiloes on her or what do you mean by that comment?

annabanana
Guest

you mean the way she looked in bend it like beckham?

james
Guest

not every woman can look the same

just like every guy can’t all be equally tall or have george clooneys eyes

lc
Guest

Hahaha give me a break. I wonder what all of the naturally thin women think about that? That they “shouldn’t” be that way? Lol as they try to gain weight and it doesn’t happen…this is one of the dumbest comments I have ever read on this site, ever.

I guess all men should be strong, tall, and muscular, Chris Evans-lookalikes too, no flabby beer guts or fat! It’s not natural or allowed!! Hahahaha. Give me a break and go expand your mind, though I suspect you’re only trolling. You seem to do that a lot.

I dont think you understand what a marxist is. Also being slim or basically not fat and fit is usually the healthiest our body is but are getting fatter due to the fact our body is still the stage were we were cave men and how we ate during seasons usually meant either having lots of food or fasting due to winter. Therefore are body still craves the food however our sedtery lifestyle mean we are not burning the calories meaning people are getting fatter. Men are supposedly find women who are most likely to be fertile the most attractive… Read more »

Fashion models are great looking in real life, but they still look nothing like a lot of the pictures of them– just look at VS candids and compare them to the cleavage they have in photoshop, or their skin.

Erica

She looks really good here – maybe a little skinnier than she was a few years ago, but she looks fit and healthy to me. I like her quote – I feel the same way. ‘Perfect’ people (who don’t actually exist, but we are bombarded with images of them anyway) put me off – people who put a lot of time and effort into their appearance just tend to be people I don’t hit it off with anyway. I like people who are natural – minimal make-up and not dressed to the nines for everyday errands – they just seem… Read more »

she will always be the typical good girl in my eyes who always looks decent and pretty and says current nice things people want to hear. nothing wrong with her but a bit boring for me sorry.

Emma is just gorgeous! Beautiful features and bone structure, lovely little figure and well spoken. Just gorgeous! She has been getting prettier as she’s matured. Like she has grown into her features, and gained a certain air of confidence.

love this dress and the cool earrings, make up/hair not the best. As for the quote, i personally can’t say i’m “excited” about aging but i guess she was trying to say she’d rather let the nature do whatever it does and not interfere in that natural process with any injections, surgeries, etc. I hope she truly made peace with the pressure in the industry she’s working, cos only a handful of actors really do, others either conform or fight it but only temporarily, and then suddenly budge. I don’t blame them though, pressures in “real” world” are terrible too,… Read more »

I’ve never seen her appeal. She still looks really young and she can’t act imo. I do thinks she looks really pretty here though. I think her smile puts me off. Like it’s forced and she doesn’t really wanna be there or she’s shy and doesn’t wanna be the centre of attention.

No I think she just has one of those faces I am the same except not even near as flawless or pretty but basically its really hard to tell how old you are could be any were from 17 to 23. Great when your an actor not so great when you have 15 year old boys flirting with you.

Doesn’t being the face of several major fashion brands kind of make her part of the machine though…

She is petite and healthy looking and glowing as always. She looks gorgeous

annabanana

pretty sure that is just too much eye makeup and bad lighting. also maybe aging a bit. if anything her face looks thinner than it used to be.

annabanana
Guest

except she’s almost 24, so what? she shouldn’t date someone her age? lol
