While she’s been a best-dressed list regular for years, Emma Watson admits her style is still inspired by stars — just like the rest of us.

“I love Cate Blanchett. She always wears something that’s a little unexpected but is very beautiful and classic at the same time,” Watson told PEOPLE at the Noah premiere in NYC Wednesday, where she wowed in a flowing black Oscar de la Renta gown and navy Christian Louboutins.

One of her other sartorial muses? A fellow Brit. “I’m always interested to see what Tilda Swinton wears,” Watson, 23, says. “I think she’s amazing.”

The actress has been killing it on the red carpet this season. Coming off an incredibly stylish awards season, Watson has been busy with Noah‘s world press tour, during which she’s turned heads in Berlin and Madrid.

And following her major red-carpet moment at the N.Y.C. premiere, the star switched things up with a pretty Erdem dress and Roger Vivier heels for the afterparty.

The star is popping champagne for more than just the film’s premiere, however. She graduates with a degree in English lit from Brown University in May. “I’m going to celebrate like everyone else, I guess,” Watson says of her upcoming commencement. “Just having a party, being around friends and family and just having a good time.”
