For those of us who have been with the Harry Potter series since there was still Quidditch in the movies and the possibility of Hermione with a pixie cut seemed unimaginable, this week’s premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 is as bittersweet as it is exciting. Stretch out the experience with our coverage of the red carpet at both the premiere in London and US—the fashion is sure to be enchanting.
Who could have guessed that Emma Watson’s red carpet allure would surpass even that of “the boy who lived”? The starlet went out with a bang at the UK premiere in a princess-worthy Oscar de la Renta sky blue ball gown with a tulle skirt and beaded bodice. Her slicked ‘do suggested that she might be growing out that pixie after all. At the NYC premiere, she wowed in a bronze Bottega Veneta gown with a pleated taffeta skirt and corset top. Her Cleopatra-inspired eye makeup finished off the edgy look.
