Emma Watson is lighting up Christmas again, this time in London, England. The Evening Leader reports the Hermione Granger actress turned on the Christmas tree lights today to mark the opening of the Somerset House Ice Rink. You can see early photos here via Wire Image via Rex and  here via WENNThe paper states "Watson turned on the lights on the Tiffany Christmas tree decorated with huge blue ice skates. She said she was "absolutely delighted" to be officially performing the switch-on.

Wearing a red scarf and a black coat, she added: "I've been coming here since I was about 13 and I absolutely love it. It's Christmassy and wonderful."

Oh, btw, not remotely on a par with lighting the Rockefeller Center tree – this is about the fifteenth “Star Turns On Christmas Lights” story we’ve seen just in the last fortnight. Oxford Street got the Sugababes and a much bigger crowd.

“Wow! what an honor. I guess the equivilant would be lighting the Rockefeller tree. so Wow.”

LOL no, that’s not a good comparision at all.

i have to say i agree with those saying that the make up doesn’t suit emma. i think she tends to look much better when she goes for natural tones. when she uses harsher/more intense colours, or even a bright red lipstick, it seems to swallow her face up somehow. she’s a pretty girl that doesn’t need to hide behind makeup, and certainly not makeup that doesn’t suit her. yes all us girls try out different looks, but not many of us leave the house with a look that makes us look 10 years older and slightly haggard. at least, not intentionally.

This looks like a really fun event with lots of families and kiddies in attendance. Nice job, Emma! (I agree she looks better with her eyes more natural, less made up! Otherwise her face looked fine to me. Maybe she just wants to be grown up, which is normal. I agree her best look is natural, with minimal make up.)

I love Emma soooooooooooo much! Yesterday it Movie Magic Day! We had to dress up as our favorite actor. I chose Emma Watson(Hermione Granger from
Harry Potter). To be honest I do not recognize her make-up at all. She looks good
just the way she is.
