Hermione Gets Glam in Jenny Packham

09/22/2009 at 01:00 PM ET


Jenny Packham showed her Spring/Summer 2010 collection at London Fashion Week on Saturday and titled it “Pretty Girl No. 1”. Appropriately, after the show, she dished to PEOPLE about working with her newest It-girl client — Emma Watson‘s Hermione in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. “Emma was so lovely,” said the British designer, renowned for her glamorous red carpet creations. “It’s the first time Hermione has worn something really kind of glam,” said Packham excitedly, on the red dress she designed for Watson’s more “geek than chic” character Hermione Granger. “You just have to do it and hope that they don’t cut it,” said Packham, adding “I think with Hermione, the dress is featured in a very prominent scene, thankfully.” So can we expect Hermione to turn into a designer diva in the next installment of the franchise? “No, I’m sure Emma wanted to wear something more glamorous, but she still has to look like your average teenager and, of course, a witch at the same time!” said Packham. Having worked on the film sets of Sex and the City and Casino Royale, Packham still gets a buzz from being part of the action: “It’s just an amazing experience, plus I’ve got two daughters so I got so many brownie points for that one!” –Monique Jessen

Maybe I’m too much of a fan of the books, but why is it that the movies are have so little in common with the books? *sigh*

But it is a very nice dress… Emma is a very pretty girl

LOVE IT!!! I’ve always wanted to see her in red. They usually put Hermione is alot of pinks and pale colors. But red is gorgeous on her. And even better…she’s holding the magical handbag!! I can’t wait to see DEATHLY HALLOWS!!!

Gabby on

To those wondering which part of the book this is from…it’s from the part when the trio have to flee the wedding because it’s been attacked by Death Eaters. In the picture above…they’re about to cross the street and I’m assuming Hermione makes them hold hands. lmao.
