Emma Watson, two-time defending champion of the bitter fashion battle known as March Fabness, hit the cover of The New York Times Style Magazine looking utterly delectable.

Emma looks as stunning as my mother told me she did, when Mom texted me, before offering to mail me a Times’ fashion issue if I couldn’t find it myself because that’s how good Emma looked on the cover. And I agree! Emma, I love the dramatic cat-eye – let’s do this with our makeup more often. And I need to know who did her eyebrows and befriend them immediately. The slicked-back hair is divine; everything feels perfectly set to show off her natural beauty, which it does.
Scholarly Emma is one of my favorite Emmas. This girl can rock tweed like nothing I’ve ever seen. Her sharp features and pixie cut make menswear look even more delicious on her.
A totally transformative shot, even though it doesn’t seem so different at first glance. But she looks older and wiser, taller and more worldly – she looks like a model, and a damn good one, not Harry’s sidekick.
That expression is exactly how I feel about newsboy caps too, Emma – like, didn’t we kill this trend to death ten years ago? – but she’s pulling it off, like the expert she is. And the jacket is brilliant – I think my grandfather used to wear this exact one to shul on the High Holidays. And there’s no higher compliment coming from me.
Pensive Emma is not my favorite Emma, particularly in this ridiculous frilly blouse. I’m not sure there’s a such thing as a bad shot of Emma Watson, but this is certainly my least favorite of the bunch.
