Emma Watson did basically everything when it came time to be a face of a new Lancôme perfume, you guys! First, “I helped choose the color of the rose,” says the actress. “I was involved in the concept for the [ad] film and the tag line, ‘Catch my heart if you can.’” And the tag line. She also reports that she “helped” choose the perfume’s name (Trésor Midnight Rose), select her co-star, Cyril Descours, and was responsible for the overall inspiration — Godard’s Breathless. “The hat [in the ad] was my hat, which I bought at a flea market in Paris. I was very involved in the script.“
