Silver Screen Fashion: Harry Potter

As I have promised in my earlier post of Harry Potter Silver Screen Fashion (view here), here is a Harry Potter inspired fashion according to the four houses — Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw,& Hufflepuff.

Get Inspired By Hogwarts Fashion

Each and every house has its own distinguished characteristics and distinct values. Conforming to that characters, I have ended up with fashion sets that you can look up to in order to have that Hogwarts-inspired style. HP fans, enjoy. :)

Gryffindor

You might belong in Gryffindor,

Where dwell the brave at heart,

Their daring, nerve and chivalry,

Set Gryffindors apart. 

Gryffindors possess the distinct characteristics of being brave, daring, and benevolent. A lion signifies their house and their house colors are scarlet and gold.

Slytherin

Or pehaps in Slytherin,

You’ll make your real friends,

Those cunning folks use any means,

To achieve their ends.

Signified by a snake, Slytherins have ‘certain disregard of the rules’ according to Dumbledore. They are characterized as clever, cunning, ambitious, and determined. Their house colors are green and silver.

Ravenclaw

Or yet in wise, old Ravenclaw,

If you’re a ready mind,

Where those of wit and learning,

Will always find their kind.

Intelligent, witty, and creative — those are the describing words for the Ravenclaws. Their house is signified by an eagle and their colors are blue and bronze.

Silver Screen Fashion: Easy A

image

A comedy about a high school girl who turned from a nottie to a hottie after being rumored of having sex with a College guy — this is how Stone’s character, Olive, is being sketched. 

The Arizona native 21-year-old actress, Emma Stone, has finally got a starring role after playing a lot of supporting roles in several movies. She first caught our attention in Superbad, The House Bunny, and Ghosts of Girlfriends Past. The comically charming actress seems to make it to her stardom after the success of her recent movie, Easy A — a story of a book-smart, bubbly high school girl with an unblemished school record who tried to gain a scarlet letter status to attain popularity and reputation.

Though this movie is all about high school and reputation, we will talk about fashion.  

image

Blazers, vests, tanks, jeans, and flats — we can easily determine what are inside the ‘outsider’ Olive’s closet. 

image

image

Though she wears simple, non-attention-catching outfits, she knows how to accessorize. I noticed she usually wears long necklace, long earrings, scarf (occasionally).

image

image

The nottie-turned-hottie Olive stuffed her closet with corsets and sewn red A’s on all of them imitating the condemned woman, Hester Prynne, in the The Scarlet Letter.

image

image

Olive ditched her tanks and vests and wore corsets and bustiers instead, matching them with jeans, heels, pearls, and a black Ray-ban wayfarer, pulling off a more casual stripper-look. 

image

Another fashionable act brought by Easy A was sighted on its première night in LA September 17 last year. Emma Stone sparkled in a daring low-back, sequined Emilio Pucci Fall 2010 dress and Stella McCartney nude, zipper-detailed pumps.

image

And for the 2010 Toronto Film Festival première of Easy A, she wore a femme lace one-shoulder dress by Stella McCartney Resort 2011 paired with navy Casadei pumps.

Silver Screen Fashion: Harry Potter

J.K. Rowling has rocked our world with her seven ever prominent magical novels and it is undeniable that Harry Potter has influenced our society ever since it got famous in 2001. We all know him, or least, heard of him; from pop culture to lifestyles to whatever aspect it inspired you, we know it — it is effing universally famous!

Well then, since this is a fashion blog let’s talk about fashion as seen on Harry Potter and as inspired by it.

As Seen In The Movies

image

In the first chapter, HP and the Sorcerer’s Stone, we were enchanted not only by the spells and magic but by the Hogwarts’ uniform. How we wish Hogwarts was real. Harry’s signature round-framed glasses also became a thing. And don’t you just love that sweater cute little Harry was wearing?

image

Am I the only one who admires their Quidditch uniform?

image

They’ve been fond of various jackets, hoodies, and sweaters starting from the very first chapter until to the very end.

image

And who would forget the Yule Ball? It was the first time we’ve seen Hermione Granger to dress up. A lot was obsessed with her pink Yule Ball floating gown but what I liked more was that elegant knot at the back of her head (in courtesy of Sleekeazy’s Hair Potion).

image

Harry and Ron dressed up for the Yule Ball. Harry kept it classy while Ron opted for a ruffled tux (reminds me of Marie Antoinette). 

image

Two of my favorite looks I’ve seen in Harry Potter series (not from Ms. Granger, unfortunately): Also in Yule Ball, Cho Chang in her champagne Oriental-inspired ball gown (and look, there was the Twilight guy) and Fleur Delacour in a very beautiful, light, embellished gray-gold gown.

image

Would you forget Luna Lovegood's attention-grabbing glasses? My attention was more drawn to her gorgeous hair though. And her pretty plaid coat. :)

image

Our antagonist slash hottie, Draco Malfoy, always opted for a polished, smart-without-looking-like-a-nerd look with his sleek signature hairstyle. Black seems to be his favorite color and turtlenecks are his thing. 

image

Bellatrix Lestrange also made an impact with her dark signature look. I’m pretty sure Bellatrix and Helena Bonham-Carter herself have the same fashion tastes. :))

image

And lastly, from the last chapter which I believe is still kicking in the box office up to this moment. Compared to their get-ups in the Yule Ball which was around four years ago, their fashion sense has gone better. Hermione looked so gorgeous in that flirty red mini-dress without losing the essence of her smart-ass character while Harry and Ron are well-dressed yet scorching hot in their formal attires.
