I just saw Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part 1 and let me just say it was fantastic, better than anything I could have imagined. Everything, once again, was represented exactly as I had painted in my mind while reading the text summers ago. That aside, what I would like to talk about is Hermione's dress during the wedding scene. Beyond, to die for, absolutely perfect for her. I couldn't seem to take my eyes off of it. Immediately drawn in by the rich, strong color, I was then glued to its cut, detail, fabric and graceful flow. Balanced out so elegantly with a simple necklace and matching slingback heels (I'm not crazy about these but I'll let them pass because its Hermione), she certainly was the object of the audience's affection in this scene, who is used to her wearing some sort of (raggedy) sweater and jeans combination. I needed to know where I could get this piece. Unfortunately, as I assumed, Jany Temime, Potter costume designer, had this dress custom-made. Boo. Make more?!
