Considering the fact that a handful of celebrity clothing lines (including Jennifer Lopez‘s Sweetface and Mandy Moore‘s Mblem) have gone under in the past month, it seems like Hollywood is learning a hard lesson that an interest in clothes does not necessarily make one a fashion designer. Luckily there are awesome young actresses like Emma Watson who, despite being beloved by designers and having great style, have no desire to pretend to be the next big thing on the runway.
Watson told WWD recently that she would only consider designing something if it was for charity, otherwise, she’s happy just being an actress. “I’m really not interested in doing it for my own ego. I’m not a designer. If someone asked me to do something that was beneficial to a cause, then maybe I’d consider it, but not just [to be able to say] ‘Look at me! I’ve got my own line!'”
And as for a fragrance, forget it. “[It’s] gotten so ridiculous. The idea of making my own perfume makes me want to vomit.” Love her so much. Interesting though that she doesn’t mention wanting to create her own spray-tan line, since that’s also an option these days. [Photo: GettyImages]
