Emma Watson seemed poised and looked elegant as she accepted the Trailblazer award at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards Sunday in Culver City. She stood out at an event where, as my colleague Glenn Whipp writes, many of the stars seemed to use the Macklemore song "Thrift Shop" as a dressing inspiration.

You may have noticed that "Harry Potter" star Emma Watson has taken un-Hermione Granger-like roles as of late.  That's after the 23-year-old stopped acting altogether for a bit and briefly enrolled at Brown University in 2009, then dropped out before completing a degree.
