Chanel may have told WWD that Emma Watson "chooses to wear Chanel" - and really, who wouldn't choose to wear when they can? - but it does look like Hermione's red carpet dresses have landed her in the right spot: Ms. Watson has just signed with Storm Models, the London home of Kate Moss and Lily Cole, where desks are buzzing that the young star is indeed in talks with Chanel to do some sort of campaign. How likely is the rumor? We're not optimistic. Emma is a great girl, but Chanel often dresses young starlets, which fuels rumors of campaign deals, and then it all crumbles.

We bet Emma will land a big fragrance deal instead, but if the modeling thing doesn't work out, the Tatler cover girl shouldn't worry: She can always fall back on her acting.
