Emma Watson made quite the entrance at the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 premiere Thursday, stunning the excitable London crowd in a dreamy, light-hued Oscar de la Renta creation. But she wasn’t the only star working a little white magic on the red carpet. Costar Clémence Poésy dazzled in a short, bright dress accented with a black belt and peep-toe heels; Bonnie Wright set off her red hair in a peachy white Miu Miu creation; and Evanna Lynch brought the fun factor in a ruffly white mini. Meanwhile, star Helena Bonham Carter and writer J.K. Rowling found themselves sporting similar motifs, too. Rowling went conservative in a flowery green-and-pink gown by Oscar de la Renta, while Carter — always happy to break some fashion rules — appeared in a long green gown with a flowery pink topper. It was definitely a fashion-forward affair, but we want to know what you think! Tell us: Which star looked best at the Potter premiere?
