Emma Watson shoots her new Lancome campaign in Paris. - KCSPresse/Splash News
Just one day after the news broke on Monday, the glamorous actress was spotted filming her first commercial for the famed French beauty brand in Paris with Mario Testino, shooting scenes in front of the iconic La Societe restaurant and Cafe de Flore in Paris' Saint-Germain district.
Following her declaration, Emma started posting teasing messages on her Twitter account about her first gig away from the school yard. "A new venture is starting - what can it be? Follow my clues and you will see..." she wrote last Friday, followed by her first clue, "I'll pierce your skin if you hold me wrong but I'll love you forever if you pass me on." I figured Emma was referring to a rose.
Over the next few days Emma posted the following clues:
"I'll be seen through a lens that has seen me before. Do you know who I mean, or do you still need more?"
"Are you keeping pace? No? Don't lose face, it's not a race. We share our birthplace..."
"It's a beauty house that wears a hat. French? Very, but this is no beret."
"This Pretty Woman was their latest recruit. Other great actresses have previously followed suit."
If you need answers to Emma's clues we've deciphered the following: Lancome uses a rose in its advertising campaigns. Emma's spent a lot of time in front of the camera (the lens). Emma was born in Paris. Lancome wears a hat -- it's the accent over the "o" in Lancome. Julia Roberts was the brand's last recruit.
This campaign will surely only take a few days to shoot, so we're still curious as to what Emma's really postponed school for. Perhaps she'll gift us with a few more clues via Twitter some time soon!
