    Absolutely stunning, Emma Watson

    The 23-year-old beauty turned heads in a jaw-dropping Wes Gordon gown when she arrived at the Berlin premiere of her film Noah on Thursday, where she looked stunning in the navy and black tulle chiffon number as she promoted the Darren Aronofsky-directed flick. 

    Watson paired the delicate floor-length dress with a bright red lip, high-heeled pointed-toe pumps and wore her hair in a straight and slicked back style, adding two large silver rings, as well as two black rings, to accessorize her fancy frock.

    And in case you can't get enough of the former Harry Potter stars' latest head-turning look (seriously, we're obsessed), the back of the dress is even better, as it features a racer-back style along with a pretty chiffon bow, proving Watson is still at the top of her fashion game. 

    While Watson is certainly making headlines for her impeccable style, the brunette beauty's most recent film is simultaneously stirring up controversy, attracting criticism from both Muslims and Christians for its portrayal of Biblical and Islamic figure Noah. 

    The reported $75 million film, which stars Russell Crowe as Noah and Jennifer Connelly as Noah's wife Naameh, has been banned in the United Arab Emirates, according to Fox News, for its onscreen portrayal of the prophet, which is a general taboo in Islam.

    "There are scenes that contradict Islam and the Bible, so we decided not to show it," the director of media content at the National Media Center in the United Arab Emirates, Juma Al-Leem said. "It is important to respect these religions and not show the film."

    Additionally, Fox News reported that Qatar and Bahrain will also censor the film. 

    Watson plays the daughter-in-law to Noah in the forthcoming flick, which is due to hit theaters in the U.S. on March 28.
