We already know that Emma Watson is a versatile actress. After all, her genre-skipping onscreen roles are exactly the reason she's received the MTV Trailblazer Award! However, the 22-year-old's talent for transforming herself isn't restricted just to movies— she's proven her style chameleon status time and again in magazines, too. But despite her recent edgy Marie Claire UK look, her preppy-cool NYLON style, and repping her inherently chic beauty in T, the actress's new British GQ cover STILL called for a double take, because it's just so different than how we're used to seeing her. The star graces the publication's May issue decked out in total Bling Ring fashion, channeling her onscreen alter ego Nicki with the same long hair and body-hugging styles she sports in the forthcoming Sofia Coppola flick. The cut-out dress might conjure up major '90s Pretty Woman vibes (see the resemblance?), but the body jewelry, the giant Frappuccino, and the sunglasses propped atop her head keeps the ensemble firmly planted in the here and now.
