Emma Watson parties with Johnny Borrell

Harry Potter star Emma Watson has been partying with Razorlight star Johnny Borrell.

The 17-year-old actress – who plays schoolgirl Hermione Granger in the hit movie franchise about a teen wizard – was seen laughing and joking with the rocker at a party at the National Portrait Gallery on Monday night (11.02.08).

Emma and Johnny, 27, then shared a taxi to local nightclub Dolce, where fashion designers PPQ hosted a party.

An onlooker said: “They looked like they were getting on really well. While nothing happened, there was an obvious chemistry between them.”

Emma, who was wearing a flesh coloured tight strapless minidress and four-inch black heels, seemed determined to show how she is maturing into a beautiful young woman.

One partygoer said: “Emma looked stunning, but she couldn’t have looked more different to her Harry Potter character if she had tried!”

Johnny – who split from Spider-Man’ actress girlfriend Kirsten Dunst last year after a five-month romance – and Emma later left the party in separate cabs.
