Fails and Wins of the Week: Harry-Potter-is-almost-over-and-so-is-my-childhood Edition

So in case you’ve been living under a rock or the outer reaches of space, let me edu-ma-cate you. There’s a boy called Harry Potter. And Harry Potter just happens to be a wizard. And BAM! Instant franchise and riches for Jo Rowling. And after many, many years the final Potter film is premiering, and thus endeth a dynasty. And some people might be very excited (somewhat misty-eyed) about it because the books captured the hearts of a generation. And some people, I’m not naming any names, might be so excited, they’re going to Orlando to visit Harry Potter World. (Yay butter beer!) SO what it all comes down to is that there was a big to-do at the premiere, and I just couldn’t ignore it.

Wins: Supermegafoxyawesomehot

Emma Watson (aka Hermione Granger forever and there’s nothing you can do about it) is a mini-fashionista is training. And although this dress sort of reminds me of something you’d wear to prom (if you wear designer dresses to prom, I dunno, not at my high school), just look how happy and floaty she is! It’s like she’s saying “Freedommmmm!” except not, because she will be Hermione-forever in my mind. I <3 her.

Bonus: She looks a bit like Marilyn Monroe here with her poofy skirt. Or I just have Marilyn on my mind.


Only Helena Bonham Carter could pull off this amoeba hat that semi-clashes with her dress. But the dress is fab.

Neville Longbottom, I mean Matt Lewis, where did you come from? I know Neville goes all badass in the last film, but what have you been hiding under your robes? Please wear a suit more often, sir.

Fails: What the devil is going on here?

Overly tan surfer/rocker/dude and his grandmother. And by that I mean, Jamie Campbell Bower and this old woman impersonating Bonnie Wright. C’mon, Ginny Weasley, you’re a hot, young redhead. Get it together!

Natalia Tena clearly used a time turner to get her outfit for the night. Or you know, a hot tub time machine. This sort of looks like something Kelly Kapowski would wear in one of her more daring moments as she breaks up with Zack at the school dance for the umpteenth time. Actually, I take that back; Kelly would never wear her hair that big.
