Somebody's waved their magic wand and transformed Harry Potter's sidekick into a cool Fifties chick.
Emma Watson is seen here looking a world away from the most famous schoolgirl on the planet, Hermione Grainger, the heroine of the films based on JK Rowling's novels.
The 17-year-old actress loved the rockabilly-style wardrobe she wore for the photographs.
Magical: Emma Watson transformed from Harry Potter’s swotty sidekick into a Fifties siren
“I wish I could dress like this every day of my life,” she said.
She tells InStyle magazine of the highs and lows of fame.
“Recently a woman took my arm, looked at me very seriously and said, 'You're quite pretty in real life.' I didn't quite know how to take it.”
Watson, who has earned an estimated £10 million from the five Potter films, says she shuns stylists for red-carpet events.

“Getting someone else to choose things takes the fun out of it,” she said.
When not working she splits her time between her mother's house in Oxford, and her father's in London.
She also has a busy social life.
“For the last three weekends I've been at an 18th birthday party,” she said.
Watson, who is currently juggling A-levels and driving lessons, will appear on BBC1 during the Christmas season in a new TV film, Ballet Shoes.
The teenager says she related to her character, Pauline Fossil, an orphan.

“She reminds me a lot of when I was younger,” she said. “I was such a drama queen.”
When she got the part she said on her website: “I could not let such an amazing project go. I loved Pauline from the start.”
Set in Thirties London, Ballet Shoes is the story of Pauline and her two sisters, who are adopted by an eccentric explorer, played by Richard Griffiths.
Watson took ballet lessons and dyed her hair whiteblonde for the film, which will be screened on 28 December.
Watson was voted Britain's greatest female role model in a magazine poll earlier this year, ahead of Keira Knightley and Kate Moss.
