Fashion Magic on the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 Premiere red carpetsWith several of the stars becoming style pin ups (don't tell me HBC's not, she's landed a Marc Jacobs campaign!), the fashion on the Harry Potter red carpet should have been nothing less than magical, and for many, it was.
Perhaps because she's not that enamoured with the whole acting gig, so knows this may be her last round of big premiers for a while, Emma Watson went for seriously high wattage drama in dresses by Oscar de la Renta in London and Bottega Veneta in New York. The tight fitted bodices, and huge, romantic skirts looked alternately tulletactular and grandiose greacian, but both were definite winners. One result of the outsized skirting was that Watson was constantly fiddling and playing with her tremendous trains, and the red carpet photos are all the more adorable for them. J K Rowling also rocked de la Renta in London, appearing to bloom in the pale green and pink floral confection.
Bonnie Wright looked dreamy in a peach pink satin gown by Miu Miu a label who, if she can keep her career up, she'd potentially make a great face for.
Clemence Poesy kept things conceptual and cocktail, whilst sticking to her French roots in a white, feathery Nina Ricci gown at the London premier of the film, and a structured Chanel haute couture dress at the New York outing.
Meanwhile, Evanna Lynch proved Luna Lovegood has some learning to do from her stylish co-stars, as she donned a range of uninspiring formalwear in London and Dublin.
Finally, and most importantly, Helena Bonham Carter wore a slinky green silk slip with a twist front detail that no one's owning up to (why not? it's fabulous), and a floral fascinator that looked, magnificently, like it had been hit with an errant 'engorgio' charm.
