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.
