Stepping out for the This Is The End film premiere in LA, Emma Watson showcased a totally new look with her bustier top and cigarette pants.

Wearing a strapless Roland Mouret peplum top with cropped Phillip Lim tailored cigarette pants and Salvatore Ferragamo pumps, the former Harry Potter star seems keen to up the high fashion ante. 

With her hair pinned back into chic faux bob and dark berry lipstick teamed with smouldering eye make-up, this is one of Emma's more dramatic makeovers to date.

And if her recent appearance at the Cannes Film Festival is anything to go by, it's clear the actress is reassessing her previous red carpet uniform of print minidresses and shoe-boots.  Nailing grown-up glamour in that smouldering monochrome Chanel floor-length gown for the premiere of The Bling Ring, Emma ensured all eyes were on her.

But it's not just her new style that's surprising us – Emma's movie role choices have certainly been eclectic post-Harry Potter, and next up we see her playing herself  with a dark twist in This Is The End, as she turns star into axe-wielding maniac in the face of an apocalypse.
