Emma Watson's pretty princess dress aside, the biggest fashion moment at the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows Part 2 premiere was Helena Bonham Carter, who managed to wear matching shoes.
The belle of the ball was clearly Emma Watson in her poofy gray Cinderella dress (although I wasn't much into her jacket). Later, she changed into a similarly dreamy cocktail dress for the after party.
Evanna Lynch (who plays Luna in the films) created my favorite look by pairing a gothy handbag and fuck-me shoes with a sweet, frilly, virginal dress.
I think this might the best that Helena Bonham Carter has ever looked. Her deep green gown is flattering and she infused her own quirky personal style into the look with her over-sized flower hat. However, her Ed Hardy knockoff purse cheapens everything.
From afar, Rupert Grint looks classic in a black suit, but upon closer inspection, the scale-y detail pattern is icky.
Meanwhile, Harry, the Weasley twins, and Neville Longbottom all looked sharp in three-piece suits.
J.K. Rowling's dress is so stiff and not tailored to her body at all that it actually looks like she's naked, standing behind a life-size cutout of a gown. Everything about Natalia Tena is a mess here, from her bastardized Laura Ashley dress and cowboy boots to her ill-advised feather hair clip. Mollie King fared a little better with the floral look.
I don't know who these patriotic jokers are, but their looks scream "reality stars." Turns out, they are (or at least the guy, Ollie Locke is). I guess spray tans, iridescent lipstick, and cheesy matching outfits are international indications of douchery.
You're never fully dressed without a smile. Although Robert Carlisle (right) seems to be smizing pretty hard.
I like Bonnie Wright's prairie dress, but I'm always a sucker for any kind of mod look like Gizzi Erskine is working. As for Anna Wintour…she just always looks the same to me.
I think this is the classiest the Geldof girls (Peaches left; Pixie right) have ever looked.
Imelda Staunton was perhaps the most surprising of the evening, as she looked so glamorous and chic, a huge departure than how we're used to seeing her on screen. Maggie Smith, on the other hand, was kinda scary, in a Heaven's Gate cult-ish way. And even though Miriam Margolyes looks like she's actually wearing her Professor Sprout costume, I'm a fan — it's like a muumuu on top of a muumuu, and two muumuus are certainly better than one.
