Potter Stars Let Their Red Carpet Magic Shine

They had been showing up for the past six days, camping out in Trafalgar Square and braving the wind and the rain, they’re weren’t protesting anything or even waiting for the newest piece of Apple tech; they were the Harry Potter diehards come to catch a glimpse of their silver screen heroes on last time. Last night was the London premier of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, the final installment of the film adaptations of J.K. Rowling’s hit series. After ten years the Harry Potter saga is finally drawing to a close and last night the film’s stars hit the red carpet together for the last time together in the UK; and they went out with a bang!

Daniel Radcliffe, who was only 12 years old when the series began hit the carpet looking every bit the part of the leading man in a smart gray three piece, Rupert Grint who play’s Harry’s best friend Ron looked all grown up as well in a black faux-snakeskin suit; but as has been the trend recently the leading lady out-shined them all. Emma Watson, whose meteoric rise from mousey child start the gorgeous fashion icon is something we’ve already touched on, looked absolutely stunning in a sheer and gray floor length evening gown with a dramatically ruffled tulle skirt.

The films other mail stars such as Ralph Fiennes and Alan Rickman looked dapper as always is the custom tailored duds. While Helena Bonham Carter surprised many with a rather subdued green evening gown that while quiet flattering was not as avant-garde as many expected the forward thinking fashionista to be. All told it was a gala event fit for a king among wizards and in a few short days the red carpets will be rolled out on this side of the pond, offering Watson another chance to shine, Carter another chance to surprise and millions of US Harry Potter fans one last chance to say goodbye to their pals from what is essentially the most successful movie franchise, ever. Magical indeed.
