Emma Watson has been cast as Belle in Disney’s upcoming, live-action version of Beauty and the Beast. With her beauty, elegance and grace, the producers truly couldn’t have picked anyone more perfect

Now we know what you’re thinking: the 24-year-old actress has always played more boyish characters such as Sam Pack, an introverted rebel in The Perks of Being a Wallflower and more notoriously, Hermoine Granger, the nerdy, tom-boy in the Harry Potter series… How could she possibly play a princess?

Well, off camera, Watson continuously appears effeminate and beautiful, portraying the opposite of her typical roles. Thus, we can only imagine how wonderful she’ll be playing a princess on the big screen.

In fact, it’s a fantasy the actress has always wanted to fulfill. When the news of the casting was announced, she took to Facebook to admit, “[Beauty and the Beast] was such a big part of my growing up, it almost feels surreal that I’ll get to dance to ‘Be Our Guest’ and sing ‘Something There’. My six year old self is on the ceiling – heart bursting.”

Since production won’t start until late 2015 (double sad face), here’s a gallery of 15 times Watson has looked like a princess on the red carpet to fawn over in the meantime. Enjoy!
