Harry Potter New York Premiere

I know you’ve just recovered from the fabulosity of last week’s world premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2, but it’s time for these Brits to hop on their broomsticks and take a transatlantic journey to New York City.

You can love it, you can hate it, but it is a motherfucking STATEMENT gown. The fabric looks almost magically suspended in midair, and I very much love the deconstructed bodice. The severity of the hair and makeup help keep her looking a little more modern. I think a dress like this is crying out for a necklace, but that’s my biggest complaint. Let’s get another look:

I think it might even be better from the back. Up close, you can take in the details, like the intentionally frayed seams and edges on the bodice, and the way the skirt is so meticulously and interestingly draped. And that cocktail ring is just perfect.

From what I gathered from the blogosphere, people particularly hated the makeup. I think it’s simply fantastic – she went prim and proper but fashionable at the UK premiere, but went for an edgier, sleeker look in New York, which makes perfect sense, really.

Not really digging that shirt/tie/collar combination, Dan. And the jacket sleeves are far too short.

This ginger really loves his patterned suit jackets! Random, but at least he keeps it interesting. But the too-skinny, too-crooked tie is killing me.

Draco, please! Put on a fucking tie!

I’m running out of ways to say that Matt Lewis looks fucking amazing, so I came up with the following:

Neville Longbottom? More like, Neville be-LONGs in my BOTTOM!

Oh, right, other people besides the cast can come to these premieres! Here’s Modern Family‘s Sarah Hyland rocking a pretty adorable (if basic) dress and the least inspired styling you can imagine. But she’s young, and she’s pairing black with navy, something not a lot of people can pull off, and she makes it work. Actually style your hair, throw on some jewelry, and grab a more interesting pair of shoes, and you’d look pretty chic, dear.

Love this dress, love this blazer. It’s a very perfect “I know this is not about me, so I’m going to look understated but still very stylish so as not to seem desperate to steal attention from a bunch of twenty-year-olds” sort of vibe.

Ugh. This is like a cross between a bad pashmina and an ugly flapper dress. Not a great color for her coloring, either.

And just for fun, the boys:

Awww. I hope that while they pose for this picture, they’re all trying not to remember the orgy they had at the cast party after last week’s premiere.

    I like the irony that Neville turned out to be the best looking of them all. There’s a little young-Clive Owen look to him.

  2. I can’t wait for Emma’s hair to grow back. I mean, I get why she wanted to chop it off and I think she’s doing a decent job of rocking her way through this awkward length…but she’ll be so much more lovely when she has hair again.
    Also, the blogosphere can go fuck itself because the makeup is my favorite part (love the dress and I “oooed” but my jaw actually dropped at the makeup…#nobodyissurprised)
