Today's top style question from the wizarding world: did Fleur Delacourt marry Bill Weasley in a knock-off Alexander McQueen frock?
Blogger Lela London seems to think so. She noticed a certain similarity between the (part-Veela witch's) wedding dress and a design from Alexander McQueen's Autumn/Winter '08 collection. And looking at these images, it's hard to argue with that. But while the dress may look like McQueen, it isn't, in fact, McQueen.
And that's according to the dress' designer Jany Temime, the woman who is creating the costumes for the final Harry Potter movie; Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows; 'Fleur's dress is made in organza and decorated with a pair of phoenixes that face one another on the bodice and form the silhouette of a heart' says Temime, 'I chose the phoenix because, like love, it is eternal.'
On the one hand, we like the idea that the students of Hogwarts are so very catwalk-savvy. But on the other, designer rip-offs are never cool....
What do you think?
