As you well know, I am a huge fan of the Harry Potter books & films. With the impending release of Deathly Hallows, I’ve decided to dedicate this week to our favorite Harry Potter characters. Many of them have made appearances before, including my all time favorite post, Luna Lovegood. Today, I tried my hand at Hermione Granger. Hermione was exceedingly difficult because the runways of Paris, Milan, London and New York don’t really cater to the denim and striped sweater wearing Witch we’ve all come to love. So imagine this as a “high fashion Hermione,” lame I know but whatever. Enjoy.

Thank you all for the many suggestions, keep ‘em coming! Today I bring you Rosalind Connage, the second love of Amory from This Side of Paradise. She’s a New York City debutante, and sadly I know quite a few girls just like her. They’re born rich and will do anything to stay rich, despite the consequences. Rosalind eventually broke off her love affair with Amory because he hadn’t the fortune she was after. Such is life, and Amory was left with nothing but himself. Poor bastard.

Do I really need to explain Belle? I know you’ve all seen the movie…She’s got her nose stuck in a book and she fell in love with a beast. Done. Enjoy.

another jane austen one for y’all today, elinor dashwood from sense and sensibility. this story is pretty complicated and i’m sure you’ve heard some version of it before so i’ll be brief. let’s just say it’s very austen, sensible smart girl falls victim to the society around her and must disobey her heart’s desire. various events occur in which the man of her desire realizes how much he loves and needs her (with some mistaken identity situations in between) and they live happily ever after in a kick ass english country manor. done.
