From sorceress to style icon, Emma Watson sizzles as Glamour's October cover girl.

After Victoria Beckham fronted Glamour's style-heavy September issue, the iconic mag chooses another fashion savvy Brit, capturing Ms. Watson in several stunning high-fashion shoots.

Lensed by photographer Alexei Hay in London, Watson works her magic on the magazine's cover in a Zadig & Voltaire coat, Nina Ricci dress, Stella McCartney bra and Salvatore Ferragamo necklace.

Set against a brick wall and beat-up red coach, the eclectic shoot shows Watson in a brocade Marc Jacobs dress and Tiffany & Co jewels, as well as an Alexander McQueen bodysuit, belt and skirt, Maison Michel cat-ear veil, Falke tights and Manolo Blahnik pumps.

With her her first film après Potter, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, hitting theaters on September 21st, the 22-year-old megastar has plenty in the pipeline after her career as Hermione comes to a close.

“Making this movie was so pivotal for me because I realized I do really want to be an actress, which wasn’t something I fully knew, since Harry Potter was such a singular experience. Obviously I’m nervous to see what other people think, but it kind of doesn’t matter to me. It’s so cheesy to say this, but it’s the journey, not the end goal, that’s important," Watson tells Glamour.

A big fan of Girls creator and star Lena Dunham, Watson says, “I am literally obsessed with Lena Dunham. She’s, like, my favorite person in the world. I follow her on Twitter; I read her every day. And, yes, Girls is an example of something so refreshing because it feels real.”

Seducing the camera with sultry smoky eyes, bold brows and her signature shorts strands in a sexy tousled bob, Watson love her hair short, “I have to for roles. But if I had it my way, I would have just kept it short forever. Of course, men like long hair. There’s no two ways about it. The majority of the boys around me were like, “Why did you do that? That’s such an error.” And I was like, “Well, honestly, I don’t really care what you think!” I’ve never felt so confident as I did with short hair—I felt really good in my own skin.”
