Harry Potter heroine Emma Watson teamed up with fair trade clothing label People Tree for a collaboration line last year, and it’s still going strong. Her third collection for the label—which will also be her last—debuted today online, and the lineup includes polka dot skirts, striped shirts and draped dresses (seen above on Watson). The 20-year-old actress, now a sophomore at Brown University, worked on the collection with the People Tree founders while at the Rhode Island school. “Together we decided on all the colors, fabrics, shapes and craft skills,” she told the Telegraph. And this is just the beginning of the end—more of Watson’s final collection for People Tree will be go on sale at the end of next month. Check out the newest pieces in the gallery.
What makes Natalie Portman’s engagement ring so special isn’t just who gave it to her, but also who designed it and how it was made. Jeweler designer Jamie Wolf (inset), whose creations have also adorned Jessica Biel, Julia Roberts and Anne Hathaway, created the custom handmade ring with choreographer Benjamin Millepied, Portman’s now-fiancé. “Ben was exceptionally thoughtful and dedicated and patient to make sure we had everything right,” Wolf told InStyle, who as a former dancer for the New York City Ballet, has been friends with Millepied for over 15 years. (He even encouraged Wolf to audition as a company dancer for Black Swan, and she was cast film!) “We wanted everything about the ring to speak to things that are important to Natalie.” Therefore, in alignment with Portman’s ecofriendly and vegan ideals, the stone is an antique (round old mine cut diamond), the pave diamonds are certified as conflict-free, meaning no one was hurt or treated unfairly in the mining of the diamonds, and the platinum is recycled metal. “It was a lot of fun to work with him, he’s such a great guy and it’s such a great piece of jewelry,” Wolf said. “It speaks to my work and my taste on a personal level. I was really proud of how it turned out. It’s gorgeous.”

The Love and Other Drugs star is set to play Catwoman for the 2012 movie, THR reports, a role Michelle Pfeiffer and Halle Berry both played in previous films. And this is just another huge accomplishment for the actress: She’s also hosting the Oscars on February 27th and planning to appear on Glee as Kurt Hummel’s lesbian aunt. Do you think Hathaway will make a good Catwoman?
Though the Golden Globes are but a memory and the Oscars aren’t until February 27, there are plenty of red carpet events to look forward to in the meantime, including the BAFTA Awards in London. The nominations for the February 13 ceremony, considered by many to be the British equivalent of the Oscars, were announced this morning. Black Swan is a top contender; nominated for Best Film, Best Costume Design, and Best Hair and Makeup, while Golden Globe winner Natalie Portman garnered another Best Actress nod. We’re excited to see that Hailee Steinfeld also landed in the best leading actress category for True Grit, a first for the 14-year-old. And Easy A‘s Emma Stone is nominated for the Orange Wednesdays Rising Star Award, the only category decided on by a public online vote. (However, only U.K. residents are eligible.)

Twi-hards may have to wait until November until the second-to-last installment of The Twilight Saga hits theaters, but the anticipation just got hotter with the release of this steamy photo of Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson from Breaking Dawn Part 1. Bella and Edward’s wedding, honeymoon and—spoiler alert!—baby will all be key moments for the last two films. “You want to live up to people’s expectations,” Pattinson told EW of the highly-anticipated wedding night scene, a glimpse of which is shown here (with Stewart). “People take [the movie and characters] personally. When you are interpreting something you have a certain vision of how it will be. Sometimes it is a liberal interpretation, but you hope you get to the essence of something.” Tell us: Are you excited for the next Twilight film?
