    Emma Watson Talks Graduation Plans, Rocking Dreadlocks for Noah —Watch Now!

    While Emma Watson undoubtedly stunned on every red carpet during the much-hyped Noah promotional tour, the actress looks like anything but her glam self in the Darren Aronofsky-directed drama.

    "No, there's a bit of a dichotomy there," the 23-year-old actress told E! News with a laugh while attending the film's New York premiere and looking flawless in a duchess satin from Oscar de la Renta's Fall 2014 collection.

    The former Harry Potter star paired the elegant look with red lips for a pop of color, a dark black manicure and pointed toe pumps, appearing much older than her age as she posed for pics alongside costars Russell Crowe and Jennifer Connelly.

    But there's another reason why the brunette beauty may be feeling a bit more grown up—she will soon be graduating from Brown University.

    During a recent appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the young thesp was given a surprise gift by the funnylady and guest cohost Jason Bateman in honor of her upcoming achievement.

    Donning a pink crop top and a tight black skirt, the starlet opened her present, which just so happened to be a bright blue silk graduation hat, with the phrase "I ♥ Ellen" emblazoned across it.

    "Thank you," the British beauty laughed as she tried it on. "This will be good for the real thing."
