Emma Watson is an actress who is always dressed in the best of the best, and has become a notable person in the fashion world. So when she said she owns only eight pairs of shoes, there was a collective gasp among fashion lovers.
During an interview, the actress talked about her character in "The Bling Ring" and made the admission about her own wardrobe.
"It's almost like consumerism as a form of kleptomania," Watson said. "I've got about eight pairs of shoes and that's it. But it's easy for me to sound like a total hypocrite because, of course, I'm dressed in designer clothes right now."
Watson stars in the Sofia Coppola film that tells the real-life story of a group of teenagers who broke into celebrities' homes, often stealing designer clothes.
"She could never wear all of those clothes and half of them were brand new and still had the price tag on," the actress said of Paris Hilton's wardrobe. "But I suppose she just bought them to have them. We've all bought things on impulse, but that's an entirely different thing."
While surprising, it is certainly refreshing to hear that an actress as famous and rich as Watson hasn't given in to the world of materialism. (It's also easier for her since she probably gives clothes back to designers after wearing them on the red carpet).
How many pairs of shoes do you have?
