Ever wondered what it would look like if the entire cast of Harry Potter wore head-to-toe designer? Well, now you don't have to, thanks to the amazing Instagram account Gryffin Dior. Yes, that's a pun on the Hogwarts house Gryffindor and the iconic haute couture brand Dior. Even the artist's Insta bio, which says, "ministry of fabric ⚡️," made me chuckle. While this isn't the first time we've seen a mashup of our favourite movie characters and couture, we were absolutely delighted to see it done with some of our favourite wizards, witches, and ghosts like Hermione, Ron, and even Moaning Myrtle.
The artist, Rachel Bernstein, placed these magical characters in high-fashion clothes right off the runway. "I came up with the idea about a year ago when I was looking for a fun project to force myself into learning Photoshop. I read the HP series as a kid and have worked in fashion the last eight years, so marrying the two was a natural fit for me. Once I started gaining a following, I began introducing the 'guest houses' and the idea grew from there!" Rachel told us.
The account shows Emma Watson's character, Hermione, in a gorgeous Dior gown with the brand's iconic J'Adior straps. There's also an image of Ron Weasley and Neville Longbottom in matching pastel suits from the label that somehow work perfectly, and it has me wondering why they didn't give up their school uniforms for these looks. My personal favourite has to be Dobby (the Malfoy family's house elf) carrying a Chanel basket full of accessories from the brand's F/W '14 show with a pair of headphones around his neck. Read on to see some of our favourite images, and don't forget to follow the account for more.
