Maybe we can all be "fabulous at every age," as Harper's Bazaar intones each month. But "fabulous" means something totally different for 20-somethings than 40-somethings.
Case in point is Bazaar's October "Fabulous At Every Age" feature, which includes Emma Watson and Claudia Schiffer.
Derek Blasberg interviews both women, asking them a long list of "favorites" and "bests" that paint a picture of just how fab these two are. But it also makes it clear that Watson is so young, while Schiffer is so... old (even if she doesn't look it).
A quick side-by-side comparison:
Favorite fashion designers:
Claudia -- Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, Dolce & Gabbana, Valentino, and Isabel Marant.
Emma -- Valentino, Isabel Marant, Chanel, Céline, Chloé, Calvin Klein Collection, Zadig & Voltaire, Maje, Sandro, Burberry, Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci, Agnès B., Acne, J Brand, Charlotte Olympia, A.L.C., A.P.C., Alberta Ferretti, and People Tree.
Claudia -- North Island in the Seychelles.
Emma -- The Berkeley in London. It’s full of memories, and it’s so homey. I stayed there when I did the Harry Potter junkets. The spa is great, and they have the best spaghetti bolognese.
Claudia -- I like Chanel’s handheld luggage.
Emma -- I prefer trunks because you can open them and see everything, and they act as a kind of drawer when I don’t have enough time to unpack. They also make me feel like I am going on an adventure.
Every lady has a vice. What’s yours?
Claudia -- Red wine, chocolate, and a lie-in with my husband.
Emma -- Sugar. In any of its various forms.
The true hallmark of modern elegance is:
Claudia -- Understatement.
Emma -- When I figure this out, I’ll let you know!
Adorbz. We often see supermodels and celebrities all trotted out together on red carpets and at fashion shows, but sometimes it's nice to remember that 20-somethings like Emma Watson are just that -- 20-somethings.
In any case, both women are fabulous. Check them out in the pictures below and head to HarpersBazaar.com to read each of their questionnaires.
