- Illustrator Caroline Tomlinson mentions Emma:
“Sometimes I get told who to draw, but if I am doing things just for me, I go with my instinct. Mick Jagger, for example, is someone that I always wanted to draw. Other people such as eccentric fashion legend Iris Apfel and Emma Watson are people who inspire me by what they do, their fashion sense and what they stand for.”
“They are strong characters and not superficial. They actually stand for why they are in the world of fashion, they love what they do and why it’s important,” says Tomlinson.

- Jewellery designer Selin Kent mentions Emma:
New York-based Selin has seen the likes of Kerry Washington, Gwyneth Paltrow and Jessica Alba rock her classic pieces, but it was 26-year-old Emma who really excited her when she wore the Charlotte Earwire to a Giambattista Valli show.
“Emma Watson was the first celebrity who wore my line. I was so thrilled - I’m a big fan of her style and her humanitarian efforts,” she gushed to America’s OK! magazine.
