She might have millions in the bank and a bright future ahead of her - but fashionista Emma Watson missed the sartorial mark when she sent a birthday video message to her fans today to celebrate her 21st.The Harry Potter star looked somewhat frumpy and dowdy with a rather bouffanty version of her short crop that looked a bit too middle-aged for her elfin features.
Her overall look wasn't helped by a rather nondescript black v-necked top and necklace in the arty-looking black and white clip.
Not so magic: Emma Watson, who turned 21 today, looked a bit old before her time in her birthday message to her fans on her official website
She said: 'Just a quick message to say thank you for all the Birthday wishes and gifts you’ve sent. I’m continually overwhelmed by the support from you all. It means so much to me, so thank you very much.
'Turning 21 is a significant occasion for everyone, and it’s proved to be quite a milestone...this year I plan to continue pursuing my love of fashion, working as an ambassadress for Lancôme.'

'You've been absolutely amazing and a real comfort and I'm very grateful to you all. Yeah, I'm 21! Crazy, crazy! Thank you so much!'
In a press announcement released yesterday, French beauty house Lancome said: 'Thanks to her charm, romanticism and her incredible modernity, Emma Watson has become the icon of her generation.
'We are delighted by this new collaboration.'
Emma follows in the footsteps of other renowned actresses, such as Julia Roberts, Penelope Cruz, Kate Winslet and Anne Hathaway, who have also starred in campaigns for the brand.
Meanwhile, Emma has also spoken about the forthcoming Royal Wedding, saying she feels sorry for Kate Middleton.
She claims she understands the amount of 'pressure' that Prince William's bride-to-be is under, having just taken a year out of her study at the prestigious Brown University on Rhode Island due to the stress she was under trying to juggle public and private life.
Speaking to the Associated Press, Watson says she sympathises with Middleton's hectic build up to the wedding, saying, 'Poor girl. That must be an incredible amount of pressure. I hope she's enjoying it. Must be intense.'
Kate is set to marry Prince William on April 29.
Emma Watson is currently also busy with promotional duties for the final two Harry Potter movies. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 is released on DVD in the U.S. today.
Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 2 meanwhile is out on July 15.
