Emma Watson got cameras flashing on Wednesday night when she debuted a glamorous—and grown-up!—look at a London promotional event for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1. Marking her first red carpet appearance since boldly chopping off her hair in August, the British beauty oozed elegance in a chic one-shouldered Vionnet dress that she accented with striking bright red lips. As if to signal the official end of her Hermione Granger days when she wasn’t allowed to cut her hair, the actress, who described cropping her wavy auburn locks as “the most liberating thing,” seems to be basking in her new look. And while we’ve never seen the star in such a sophisticated light, we think her bold red lips and on-trend pixie cut add sex appeal and sophistication. With all of these changes (and no restrictions holding her back), we can’t wait to see what else Emma decides to try on! Tell us: What do you think of Emma’s new look? Do you love it or hate it? —Jessie Goldberg
