She often sticks to dark romantic styles when taking to the red carpet but last night (Thursday) Emma Watson switched things up with bold and bright colours.

The 22-year-old actress wore a dazzling Peter Pilotto outfit from the Resort 2013 collection as she attended the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards in Los Angeles.

The fiery orange top consisted of geometric shapes with mesh paneling and the use of colour blocking, meaning there was no chance she would be left looking like a wallflower at the event.

The mismatched structured skirt, which boasted a hypnotic embroidered pattern, highlighted Emma's trim legs and tiny waist.

Given that actress Emma was attending the event as a spectator and to present an award rather than receive one, she certainly managed to outshine some of the musicians with her fun and flirty look.

The British beauty wore a braid around her head and peep-toe lace-up Tom Ford heels to complete her ensemble.

The actress is currently promoting her
latest film The Perks of Being A Wallflower and she arrived on the red
carpet with her co-star Erza Miller, who opted for a flamboyant brown suit for the occasion.

The movie, also starring Percy Jackson heartthrob Logan Lerman, follows two seniors who welcome a shy freshman under their wings.

Emma and co-star Erza took to the stage to present an award during the glitzy showbiz ceremony.

Emma recently offered a little insight on her new role, telling Glamour magazine it was the realisation she needed that acting is the right career for her – despite having 10 years of Harry Potter under her belt.

She said: 'Making this movie was so pivotal for me because I realised I do really want to be an actress, which wasn’t something I fully knew, since Harry Potter was such a singular experience.

'Obviously I’m nervous to see what other people think, but it kind of doesn’t matter to me. It’s so cheesy to say this, but it’s the journey, not the end goal, that’s important.'
