Emma Watson thinks her fashion sense is "boring''.

The actress has become somewhat of a style icon thanks to her elegant wardrobe choices. However, Watson insists that she isn't very daring. The 23-year-old has revealed that when she isn't gracing a red carpet or attending glitzy showbiz events, she plays it safe with her personal wardrobe.

"My problem is that I am a little bit boring. I don't wear designer bags or big sunglasses,'' she told the French edition of Elle magazine.

"When I don't have to play Emma Watson in public, I'd rather not put myself 'out there'. I have to be more careful with my look in my everyday life.''

The Harry Potter star also talked about becoming the face of Lancome when she is said to prefer shunning the limelight. Watson explained that she has come to terms with the fact that she will never be anonymous.

"Someone asked me why I accepted this job, as I wanted to stand in the shadows. Actually, I gave up the idea that I could become anonymous again!'' she said. "Before, I used to insist on taking the bus or the underground as a way of rebelling against my fame. But, at one point, you have to give it up. Last year, in Bangladesh, I came across a really poor village, made of dried mud shacks. A little boy dressed in rags asked me, 'Hey, aren't you the girl in Harry Potter?'''

The actress added that she was inspired by previous Lancome ambassadors. The beauty explained that the brand represents some of her favourite qualities.

"I would have never lend my image to a brand if I didn't feel in perfect harmony with it! Lancome embodies everything I like: France, where I was born, quality and stars who I admire for their sincerity and charm, like Julia Roberts or Penelope Cruz,'' she gushed.

"And, most of all, Lancome allowed me to work the way I wanted to. I appreciated that a lot.''
