EMMA WATSON post-feminist pose?

“They were saying that I couldn’t be a feminist and ... and have boobs.”
This is a classic feminist v post-feminist conundrum: 'Emma Watson 'stunned' by criticism that Vanity Fair cover is not feminist' - does Watson's sexualised pose make her a (willing) victim of the misogynistic media and its continuing privileging of the male gaze ... or simply assert Watson's self-confidence and desire for sexual expression?
