Ssh, listen for it. If you are quiet enough, you can hear the collective sound of millions (billions?) of squealing fans, huffing in excitement, getting ready for their final journey into their favorite place. Forgive me for getting a little emotional, but the end of Harry Potter marks the end of an era; an era where I was filled with wonder and enchantment at the imaginative prospect of OH MY GOD, DO YOU SEE EMMA WATSON'S DRESS? What is that Oscar De La Renta DELIGHT she is wearing? At first one thinks of the über-femme Marchesa like she rocked at the MTV Movie Awards, but no, that is ODLR all the way, with the sheer excessiveness and glamour of the garment. Sure, it might be a little much for a daytime Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 red carpet, but the entire world is looking at her, and that isn’t even a little hyperbole. The tiers (and for me, tears!) falling down, the dreamy gray color, the bejeweled bodice...Harry shmarry, let’s see Emma and Co. making (fashion!) magic for the VERY LAST PREMIERE OF ALL TIME.

DANIEL RADCLIFFE—HARRY POTTER

Daniel Radcliffe. Danny boy. Look at you. It was only yesterday you looked up at me with big saucery eyes and a shaggy haircut that really didn’t work for any of us, and I thought—who cast this kid? I take it all back now, the fool I was; there you are, standing as every bit of the man that Harry Potter became. And not to stretch the comparison further, but Harry would TOTALLY wear a three-piece Simon Spurr suit too. You, sir, have the class to add a tie clip, and for that, I know we raised you well.

EMMA WATSON—HERMIONE GRANGER

One would not be wrong if, on first glance, you thought Emma Watson looked like a bit of an angel. She has that ethereal piecey hair and is awash in a swirl of soft fabric, poised with a long, cherubic neck. Her shoes are lost amid the orgy of chiffon, but her tiny metallic nails and drop earrings make us think that maybe she really is a witch, but more of a Glinda than a Wicked. Also, imagine all of the fun she had swishing along all night. You could probably hear her for miles.

RUPERT GRINT—RON WEASLEY

You know what, Rupert Grint? You aren’t the sultry hottie that Tom Felton is, nor the suave figure of Daniel Radcliffe. But underneath that shaggy hair and black-and-white suit is kind of a hunk. People might think you are just a regular guy, but like the subtle alligator print on your jacket, there is more than meets the eye.

J. K. ROWLING

Not only is the fact that a few of Jo Rowling’s flowers are actually REAL absolutely adorable, but like her young friend Emma, JK is wearing an Oscar De La Renta dress. Was that planned? Do you think they called each other and decided on each other’s dresses together? Did they maybe get ready at Jo’s house? I’d like to think so, but probably not, as Emma may have cautioned Jo against the massive floral print. Some may say wallpaper...we say “age appropriate.”

BONNIE WRIGHT—GINNY WEASLEY

Look at Bonnie Wright, that sultry minx, sitting there in the London sun in her pitch-perfect Miu Miu. It almost verges on uni-tonal until BAM, those golden drops of pure accessory goodness dribble off of her ears. And a little green, too, 'cuz she's a redhead. The staid dress plus the fire-engine red nails would lead one to believe lil' Miss Bonnie is a total firecracker.

TOM FELTON—DRACO MALFOY

Like, 300 years ago, before the dawn of the internet, I pointed out that Draco Malfoy was a bit of a hottie. Granted, Tom Felton was a toddler then and his goofy blonde hair and baby pout wasn't selling anyone, but I stick to my guns. In a smart black suit and an edgy, skinny tie, I would totally let him make a horcrux out of me (zing!).

EVANNA LYNCH—LUNA LOVEGOOD

This part is simply un-fun, because Evanna Lynch seems like an incredibly cool individual who has nailed red carpet looks before. But this is just LOONY. The low-cut dress is too frilly to be sexy and too sexy to be quaint, and as if to completely confuse us, she has a fur purse. Fur purses are a tricky territory, but with that heavy, raccoon-like eyeliner and chunky wedges, she looks like she's heading for vamp...but stopped at Free People along the way.

CLÉMENCE POÉSY—FLEUR DELACOUR

Aww, j'adore Clémence Poésy, who plays the enchanting Fleur Delacour. Compare her to our girl Evanna above. What Clémence does that is different is matches her black belt with her heavy shoes, giving a little punctuation to her dreamy white dress. Then she adds a little frill detail to her shoes to match her Nina Ricci dress, which just ties the whole thing up in a little marzipan-flavored dessert that is totally Veela-worthy.

WTF???

Well, isn't this interesting. Because no Harry Potter premiere is complete without, erm, Anna Wintour, the editrix skipped out on Azzedine Alaïa after they beefed and showed up to HP red carpet wearing THE SAME DRESS she wore to the Webby Awards weeks earlier. Massive WTF. Who knew Anna recycled?

In other WTF-ery, Helena Bonham Carter decided to put a flower on her head. Which is totally rad with us. The quirky Brit's fashion sense is strange but completely refined, and sometimes it is TOTALLY necessary to put a giant flower-bow-hat atop your head and just walk the red carpet like you own the place (which you do). Our one complaint: Like our moms told us, PLEASE, Helena. Stand up straight.

Lastly, because we aren't British we don't know who Chloe Green and Ollie Locke are (Google says Chloe is a socialite and Ollie is a TV star), but the matching Union Jack outfits are really showing us their commitment to each other, their country, and matching the red in the carpet. (Extra treat: the glam, bright white teeth/dark black hair double whammy.)
