Seeing Double: Fleur’s Wedding dress Vs McQueen
The wedding dress on Fleur Delacour (played by Clemence Posey) in the final Harry Potter movie seems to share more than just a slight resemblance to a dress from Alexander McQueen’s Fall/Winter 2008/2009 collection. It doesn’t come from the house of McQueen. Jany Temime, who is the costume designer for the movie, explained her choice of using the phoenixes facing each other ‘because, like love, it is eternal.’ The sad thing is, the amount of people who are going to recognize the ‘knock-off’ would probably be thousands or millions times more than the people who know the original creation after the movie premieres.
