This perhaps comes as no real surprise since Emma Watson has been traipsing the world in Chanel for the past fortnight to promote the new Harry Potter film, but according to the Daily Mail, Watson has been earmarked to be the next new face of Chanel in a worldwide deal. The Mail also reports that she has just been signed by Storm, the model agency that helped launched Kate Moss's career. "She is on our books," confirmed the agency but would not disclose anything more about what's in store for the 17-year-old.

The leap over to modelling seems a fairly natural move for the young Potter star, especially since her recent cover shoot for this month's Tatler magazine. Not only is she completely at ease in front of the camera, she also oozes a youthful self-assurance very few in her position can actually carry off. [source/Getty]
