She is currently filming the live-action version of Disney’s Beauty and The Beast. And Emma Watson looks simply stunning as she graces the cover of the September issue of Vogue UK. The popular actress is dubbed the ‘voice of a generation’ in the international collections issue, which is her second time as cover girl for the style bible. The actress and campaigner made her Vogue debut in December 2010, shot by Mario Testino, and it was photographer Josh Olins who worked his magic behind the lens for the latest shoot. Emma, 25, let her natural beauty take centre stage in minimal make-up as she donned a white and gold jacquard dress by Stella McCartney and with her hair loosely pulled back. The actress has been enjoying some rare time off recently and after announcing her huge new role earlier this year, Emma said that her six year old self was ‘on the ceiling’ that she would play the lead role of Belle. As well as the hotly anticipated Disney remake, the talented actress has also signed up to thriller The Circle, which co-stars Hollywood legend Tom Hanks. Not content with building up her acting credits, busy Emma has also been making great strides in her role as an advocate for ending inequalities for women around the world, gaining worldwide attention this year for the HeForShe campaign.

Meanwhile, Emma had to deny recent claims that she has been the subject of a kidnapping plot that was foiled by a taxi driver on the set of her new film. The star has been shooting scenes for the live action Disney remake at Shepperton Studios in Surrey, where the incident was said to have been discussed.
