With the last ever Harry Potter premiere set to hit London later today (sob), the cast gathered at St. Pancras Hotel for a final farewell press conference yesterday evening.

And Emma Watson took the opportunity to show off not only another gorgeous frock, but a new darker hairdo, too.

The 21-year-old has ditched her summery blonde crop in favour of a deeper brunette hue, which she showed off in a slightly sleeker version of her now famous pixie cut.

Despite the press conference marking the end of an era, the actress was all smiles for the assembled photographers, showing off her beautiful lace ruffle-hem Rafael Lopez dress, which she teamed with black Chanel heels.

Emma was joined by the rest of the ensemble cast for a photocall - with only one notable absentee. Daniel Radcliffe was over in New York and unable to attend, but never fear Potter fans - he's winging his way to London as we speak for this afternoon's big world premiere.

We'll have all the pictures from this afternoon's premiere live as it's happening, so make sure you check back later!

She's come a long way since the very first Harry Potter film - see Emma's style evolution here:
