Los Angeles: `Harry Potter` star Emma Watson says she is flattered to be the new face of Lancome cosmetics.

The 21-year-old was named as the ambassador for the cosmetics firm earlier this year and says it`s a dream come true because the brand has so much history, reported Us magazine.

"I was incredibly flattered to be asked to be the ambassadress. I think Lancome has so much class and style and history," Watson said.

"I hope it brings a sense of optimism and fun and a sense of youthful energy life is just kind of like magical and full of surprise. I wanted the campaign`s love story to be about that. There`s something modern but also timeless about that kind of story," Watson said.
