Emma Watson is blossoming as a sexy ingénue who can’t help but ignite passions with her expressive eyes and girlish figure. She was in Paris to launch her Lancôme Trésor Midnight Rose perfume, both of which, she says, are close to her heart.
But she’s really opening eyes in new outtakes from her Nov. 2010 Marie Claire photo shoot. How these photos ended up on the cutting room floor is beyond amazing.
The 21-year-old actress is filming her new movie “Perks of Being A Wallflower” in which she’ll play the romantic lead.
It’s a coming of age story about 15-year-old Charlie (Logan Lerman), an endearing and naive outsider, coping with his first love, played by Emma.

The suicide of his best friend forces Charlie to confront his own mental illness while struggling to figure out where he fits in.
After 10 years filming the “Harry Potter” series, Emma is an international brand, and perfume is the latest expression of her self.
The Trésor scent reflects her character, she says. It has hints of Turkish rose and fruity-florals and is light and easy to wear.
The understated scent is much like her own fashion style.
“I think less is more — less makeup, less accessories is better,” she told WWD magazine.
I try to dress age-appropriately, which isn’t actually that easy when obviously high-end clothing is designed for women who are older than I am.
“It’s a fine line to tread between looking smart and looking ready to go on a red carpet but also looking like I’m 21. It’s quite difficult.”
Emma also takes great pride in being involved in the perfume’s development.
“It’s funny, the guys at Lancôme were like, ‘You need to be directing, Emma.’ I had ideas about every aspect. I’m sure I drove them insane,” she said.
“I was involved in the concept for the [ad] film and the tag line, ‘Catch my heart if you can.’ The hat [in the ad] was my hat, which I bought at a flea market in Paris. I was very involved in the script. It’s been really fun for me.”
