Harry Potter star Emma Watson's new sexy look has earned her the Sexiest British Actress Under 30 title.

 

The 20-year-old beats British beauties Keira Knightley, Sienna Miller and Gemma Arterton in this poll, which was conducted by Fandango.com, reports torontosun.com.

 

Watson cast a spell on her fans when she arrived for the world premiere of the latest Harry Potter movie in a skimpy black lace mini-dress, a marked contrast to the prim and elegant outfits she has worn at the six previous Potter first nights.

Is it a coincidence or are super short bobs sexy?

 

After Emma, it is Keira Knightley, who came second in the poll after chopping off her locks. She debuted the sleek new 20s-style bob at the Chanel spring/summer 2011 show during Paris Fashion Week.

 

'I had my hair bobbed about a month ago, then I had it freshly trimmed again this morning,' Us magazine quoted Knightley as telling UK InStyle.

 

The new 'do wasn't for a movie role, I did it for myself,' she added.

Emily Blunt's good looks landed her the third spot.

'I don't like it when they stretch you out and make you all long and skinny,' the Telegraph quoted her as telling Elle magazine. 'It makes you look like a Barbie. Who the hell looks like that?' she added.

After Emma Watson, another Harry Potter star makes it to the sexy list.

 

Wright, 19, who plays Ginny Weasley in the Potter series, recently revealed that she loves to dress up for the red carpet and admits she'd wear some of her own designs one day.

 

'I see the red carpet as an opportunity to show people the real me,' Contactmusic quoted Wright as telling Grazia magazine. 'My character is perceived as the mousy younger sister and it's nice to break away from that -- but it took me such a long time to decide what to wear.'
