Look-of-the-Day

emma-watson-3emma-watson-4While we’ve featured different school uniforms from TV and film for “Back-to-School Week,” Hogwarts is probably the most exciting and magical (obviously) of the private schools we’d like to go to!  Here is Emma Watson as beloved literary character, Hermione Granger, in her Hogwarts gear.  She and her two best friends, Harry Potter and Ron Weasley, attend the wizard academy from the ages 11 to 18.  Since all three are members of the Gryffindor House, their gray uniforms tend to be punched up by their house’s colors – crimson and gold.  Over the years, Hermione goes from an adorable, frizzy-haired bookworm to a stunning, smart wizard, all while wearing various gray skirts (usually accordion), gray pullovers and cardigans piped with red and gold, white button-down blouses, Gryffindor-crested black cloaks, and red & gold ties and scarves that top off every outfit (that we were dying to buy as preteens).  Costume designer Judianna Makovsky was nominated for an Academy Award for her work on the first film, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, while fellow Oscar-winning designer Lindy Hemming costumed the second film, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.  The following six other Harry Potter films were outfitted by Jany Temime.  You can see Hermione’s complete transformation on In Style‘s website.  We love the curly-haired heroine so much, we actually wish the books had featured her as the star of the whole series! 😉emma-watson-5-daniel-radcliffe-1-rupert-grint-1
