Leave it to the lovely Emma Watson to make a major style statement on the red carpet of the 2014 Golden Globe Awards!

The British beauty stepped out in a vibrant red Christian Dior design that piqued our interest immediately.

From the front, the gown looks simply demure with its flowing fabrication, high neckline, short sleeves and ribbon tie belt.

The simple silhouette suits her just fine, but didn't wow us right away.

That is, until we took a closer look at the details and realized the stylish star paired sleek black cigarette pants underneath her gown, allowing for free movement in her dress without worrying about the open back and thigh-high slit details.

So sophisticated—and certainly not something we see on the red carpet on a regular basis!

We're impressed with the overall look, but given the glamour of the awards show, we're still surprised by this daring fashion risk.

Nevertheless, we certainly commend her confidence and dedication to the luxury designer brand.

She added a pop of unexpected color with a pair of violet Roger Vivier strappy heels and accessorized with one Dior "Mise en Dior" pearl earring on her left lobe.

What do you think of the star's standout style?
