Emma Watson is most proud of the outfit she wore to a 'Harry Potter' premiere aged 14.

The 21-year-old actress walked the red carpet for 'Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban' in a vintage purple gown and says the dress will always be "special" to her because of the effort she made in creating a distinctive look.

She recalled: "I've loved every dress I've worn for a premiere but probably the best is the purple dress from the 1920s.

"My mum and I found it in a vintage shop. It was torn but we had it repaired. The one rip we couldn't mend we covered with a corsage.

"We dyed shoes to match and found vintage silk flowers for my hair. That was the first time I felt I was creating my own look so, although it wasn't perfect by any means, that dress will always be special to me."

Emma is a fan of "modern" designers but also loves simple garments for everyday wear.

She added: "I love modern designers like Alberta Ferretti. And right now, I'm very big on VALENTINO. But for everyday wear, the items I couldn't live without are a pair of basic black cropped trousers and a pair of ballet pumps.

"You can't go wrong with those - they're the basis of everything."
