In a recent interview with Radio Times featured on Vogue UK, Emma Watson said that she owns only eight pairs of shoes. Emma Watson, one of the biggest, world-famous, and well-loved actresses. Eight pairs of shoes. 8.
Unbelievable, right? Eight is like the number of pairs we buy per month. Eight is just the black pumps we have in our closets (each pair is different, okay!). Heck, the average woman even has more pairs of shoes just gathering dust in her closet according to this shoe study.
Yet, Emma Watson, whose schedule is surely filled right now with promotions for The Bling Ring, would very quickly run out of different shoes to wear to each photo-op if she were to rely on just her own collection.
The exact quote is: “It’s almost like consumerism as a form of kleptomania. I’ve got about eight pairs of shoes and that’s it.”
Do you believe Emma Watson’s claim? True or not, it appears to us that she is a shoe lover, too, and is up for experimenting with different looks ranging from edgy to classy.
