We've seen her grow from the tiny 10-year-old Hermione on the big screen to a genuine fashion icon in real life. For years, Emma Watson has been wowing us with her edgy, but always classy, starlet style. Favoring short dresses, solid colors and bold accessories, she constantly steals the paparazzi's attention -- and our hearts. Although Watson can usually be spotted wearing the high-end brands only celebrities can afford, we've found less expensive substitutes for some of our favorite fashion moments.

At the 2008 LA premiere of the cartoon movie The Tale of Despereaux she wore a partially sheer dress and got away with it. It's hard to picture any other actress wearing a similar outfit to a children's movie premiere and looking as appropriate for the event, which is a true testament to Watson's fashion prowess.
Sheer accents to dresses can be a great way to cover up without looking prudish or getting too hot during the warmer months. Remember that sheer embellishment at the neck of the dress acts as the jewelry so keep any add-ons to your hands and ears.
