Emma Watson has two distinct Harper’s Bazaar UK covers for August: one white and angelic, the other dark and edgy with less-flattering hair (for subscribers, naturally). The budding style icon gives solid interview throughout:
Regarding the city of Los Angeles:
LA scares the crap out of me. I feel if I have to work out four hours a day, and count the calories of everything I put in my mouth, and have Botox at 22, and obsess about how I look the whole time, I will go mad. I will absolutely lose it.
No argument there, Watson! Regarding mass manufacturing:
When I went out to Bangladesh, to a factory where the clothes are made [for mass-market labels], it was horrifying. There is a cost to cheap clothes — if people could see the inhumane way they’re made, they would never in a million years buy them.
And, less specifically, the fashion industry:

Alexi Lubomirski shot Watson for both covers.
