Dan Radcliffe's Harry Potter Character to Wear Belstaff Couture

New York Magazine is reporting today actor Dan Radcliffe will be sporting some nice attire in his role of Harry Potter in an upcoming Potter film. The magazine (via WWD) reports that "Harry Potter is going high fashion. Belstaff is designing the wizard costume for Daniel Radcliffe for the next Harry Potter film. Because even fictional caped wizards need to be well dressed."

It is unclear if the clothing is for Half-Blood Prince, possibly for Slughorn's party scene or for use in Deathly Hallows. Belstaff has done costumes for many major motion pictures in the past, including the recent Indiana Jones, Oceans Thirteen, Sweeney Todd, and provided clothes for stylish lead actor Christian Bale in the Batman film series.

He’s probably gonna were that for the Wedding scene or the 19 years later part when he goes to leave his kids with Ginny !!!!! (OMG, just imagine Dan playing a father, can’t wait) !!!! It’s just one scene, there’s nothing about Harry turning into a fashion bee !!!! Just take it easy !!!!!

@ Shivi

You know, the adult Harry and Ginny just might be played by other people…. Being 19 years older and all that…

Fashion isn’t always way out there! especially for films.
Just because a major designer is working on this doesn’t mean
Harry is going to look out of place ,good grief it’s just a motion pictire.
Calm down !!!

ok, i went and looked at the Belstaff website and it tells you what they have made for films and it isn’t always “high fashion”. for both “sweeney todd” and “benjamin button” they made the leather jackets. in fact, looking at their contributions to film, it seems all they make is leather jackets, so i think people need to step back a bit and not hyperventilate over every little bit of news.

Leather Jackets rock!!

I can hardly wait to see what they have come up with for the film.
I’m just curious to see which film they are referring to.

I don’t know if this even matters. I don’t know whether this would be accurate but I am sure that the movie would be just as good as if Harry wore Prada.

I’m not sure what i think, i mean it’s cool their using good clothes but it’s not as if J.K. Rowling has ever described Harry as a fashion kind of person and in the movies you don’t really focus on the clothes unless it’s some kind of special occation like the Yule Ball was

I don’t see why it matters who makes what they wear.
I mean really… Its not like they are going to design a costume that will make the actors look like supermodels unless the scene calls for them to look like a supermodel.
enough with the superficial-ness of it all!
