Emma Watson brightened up the red carpet at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards on Thursday evening wearing a bold, colourful look.

She opted for a Peter Pilotto Resort 2013 ensemble which featured a colour-block top with black trims and mesh detail throughout, which was paired with a structured A-line skirt with an embroidered front panel and solid back panel.

There was a time when Emma was sporting LBD after LBD (with feather accents) on the red carpet, so I’m glad she’s having more fun with flirty, colourful pieces.

Black Tom Ford sandals with cut-outs and lace-up details accessorized her look, with a halo braided hairstyle and bubblegum-pink lippie providing the finishing touches.
