Did The Designer From Harry Potter Steal A Dress From Alexander McQueen?

French designer Jany Temime worked on outfitting the characters in the final Harry Potter movie, including a scene in which bride Fleur Delacour dances with Bill Weasley wearing a frothy organza dress with two phoenixes. Said Jany, "Fleur's dress is made in organza and decorated with a pair of phoenixes that face one another on the bodice and form the silhouette of a heart. I chose the phoenix because, like love, it is eternal." If we're going to believe that the magical crew follows the same "Something borrowed, something blue" custom, they have nothing to worry about. Lela London noticed some elements that Jany borrowed from Alexander McQueen's iconic fall '08 collection. The only noticeable differences seem to be the heads of the birds (from peacocks to phoenixes), the length of the gown, and the neckline. We bet Jany's pretty bummed the Confundus Charm doesn't actually work—people probably aren't going to soon forget that this swipe happened. (LelaLondon)
