Harry Potter Designer Thieve Alexander McQueen Designs?

Here’s a bit of a “Harry Potter” fashion spoiler for you. Apparently the designer for the movie franchise decided to rip off a design from late fashion designer Alexander McQueen for the design for Fleur Delacour’s dress.

It’s a lovely dress and totally appropriate for her dances with Bill Weasley in the movie, but they snagged it from McQueen’s fall 2008 collection. In the dancing scenes, Fleur wears the frothy organza dress with the two phoenixes.

Designer Jany Temime said, “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.”

Refinery29 reports:

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.

It’s a beautiful dress and it’s definitely “something borrowed”. What do you think?
