We love a bit of Harry Potter here at Simon Says Dress Up and are big fans of the beautiful Emma Watson who played Harry’s best pal, Hermione Granger, so well. We were rather excited to hear that Miss Watson landed a starring role in the upcoming film ‘The Perks Of Being A Wallflower’ and even more excited when we saw the trailer featuring the British lovely dressed as a burlesque dancer, performing a full blown strip tease in one scene. We can’t wait until the movie hits the big screen in September this year to see how the all-grown up star fairs in her burlesque clothing and racy routine. Check out the official trailer below and catch a peek of Emma in her burlesque outfit.
