Bonnie Fught


Poor Bonnie. First, the Harry Potter filmmakers stripped Ginny of most of her moxie — one of my biggest issues with that entire franchise is that they essentially deleted the sassy spirit of a major character — and now I’m about to get stuck into her about her clothing choices. Fortunately for her, she’s still got beautiful hair, great skin, a pretty face, a throbbing career, and she’s still engaged to that long-haired, chiseled dude who appeared as Gellert Grindelwald for about thirty seconds, so obviously she’s doing just fine regardless of how I feel about her taste in footwear.

    Are we sure that’s not (the horrors, either way) a shorts romper on Luna? And poor Ginny, so cute, and her Gellert beau was also in Sweeney Todd, where I found him much hotter. :)

      I, too, think it’s a romper.

      Regardless, it’s hideous. As is everything on BW. That girl REALLY needs a stylist. And a best friend. With taste.

        Definitely a romper, but still unsanitary…

          Yes, regardless, it is a problem. It’s not going to cover much.

          When the Luna page first opened on my computer, I only got her from the waist up, and I wasn’t sure what the fuss was about. The color was good, her hair was pretty (I didn’t know enough about HP to recognize the potential nose job). I didn’t see what the fus … ARGH! Scroll back up! Scroll back up!

        Why don’t you show us your Taste before you are saying something like that? and Bonnie looks beautiful and even more in the Satin Dress. THERE I SAID IT

    She looks like Karen Gillan in some of these shots; I can’t get over my envy long enough to sartorially judge.

    I agree with you 100% on the movie version of Ginny Weasley being a crime. Seeing her on screen depresses me so much, because she’s so fiery in the books! Le sigh.

      So ABC Family had a Harry Potter Marathon that I tuned in and out of this past weekend. I had this same thought about Ginny. However, my take was also that Bonnie didn’t have the acting chops…I realized they cut the part a ton, but it could also have been due to who they were working with. If you have an actress who can’t bring the sassiness, what do you do? Maybe it’s part of the problem with casting someone when they are like 9 years old and have almost no lines in their first film…think ahead people!

        Yeah, blame her for the Ginny Script and the cut Scenes and not enough Lines. Ever watched her out of HP? She has one american Movie coming out this Year, another UK Movie out soon, filming next to Steven Spielbergs Daughter next Month in USA, got a Lead Role in a Movie with Emily Watson later this Year, directed a Short Film and was nominated by Empire Awards for Ginny this Year… think ahead Haters!

          Haha…fair enough. I truly haven’t seen her in anything else and all the comments are in support of her abilities. I agree on the lackluster writing however…if I hadn’t read the books I’d be completely confused as to why Harry all of the sudden likes Ginny. (Also if you watch the Half Blood Prince, which I think is one of the worse HP movie adaptations, they keep making a point of having Harry say he doesn’t like Hermione b/c she is the obvious choice of mate for him if you only watched the movies)

      Ginny’s actually one of my favorite characters in the books. She’s so full on Weasley- brave and fiery and funny and brave. That is one of the things I dislike most about the movies. Book Ginny and Harry make an awesome couple, while Movie Ginny and Harry are about as passionate as Flobberworms.

      But I like Bonnie (and her magnificent hair) and think most of the injustice done to the character was the fault of the writers, not her.

        Thank you for the Flobberworm reference. I think the problem was a little of both? The script didn’t help her much, and the directors probably didn’t want her to be too sassy/sexy… but I do think the whole casting-someone-at-age-nine is the main issue.

      • Jane

        I am always encouraged by a good Flobberworm reference. I agree, it’s a bit of both, even though I like Bonnie. But it’s hard to tell at age nine if they’re going to grow up to be sassy and fierce.

    Bonnie looks like a normal person who wandered into a Red Carpet event.

    I know there is a joke somewhere about muggle clothing, just not witty enough to come up with it myself!

    I totally agree about movie Ginny! She was so lively, smart, funny, feisty in the books and so dead in the movies…

    I’ve got to say, I love those shoes in slide 4 and I’d be totally okay if Mickey Rourke and I had the same taste in shoes for the sheer entertainment value alone.

    I wish I could have seen the look on MY face when I got to pic #7. I was like “What’s wrong with Luna? She totally looks just” – pause for scrolldown – “WHAT is she wearing?”

    I tried to ignore everything neck down because she looks more and more beautiful from one picture to the next. Someone needs to hook her up with an aspiring designer for these red carpet runs.

    I know nothing about her, but I love everything about her. I think her sense of style is charming, mostly because she has a killer presence. My story for her is that she’s an old soul who’s happy to be anywhere, but might rather be gardening in a big, floppy hat.

    Bonnie should just set her fashion-meter to “Duchess of Cambridge” and have done with it. Though she’s not as tall as Kate, she does have gorgeous hair, a lovely face accessorized with a mischievous smile, and that regal posture.

    Might her affinity for flats have something to do with the fact that her feet are ENORMOUS for her little body?
    PS I hated Ginny across the media. Extraneous character created for Harry to have a GF.

      I loved her in the books; I liked a mouthy tomboy sister to counteract all that Weasley testosterone. Also, I feel like her existence REALLY says that Ron is Harry’s soulmate in a way, and the Weasleys the closest thing he has to a real family, and so there needed to be a lady Weasley to reel him in.

      Well he did have Cho first and I didn’t like her, in the books OR the movies, and yeah -he does need a girlfriend. Doesn’t every teenaged boy? (Unless, of course, they need a boyfriend.)

    The first pic was a brilliant scroll down. I thought she’d wandered out of the house with her slippers on. Anyway, apart from the leather-jacket-and-Mickey-Rourke-shoes outfit in which she looks really confident and not a kid-in-the-headlights, these all reminded me of the ‘before they got a stylist and free clothes flung at them’ portions of the Style Evolution slideshows the Fug Girls do over at NYMag.

    I thnk Luna Lovegood is wearing a long-sleeved PLAYSUIT. The mind. It boggles.

    (As if it wasn’t boggled enough about Bonnie’s footwear choices – which all seem of a piece…)

    Movie Ginny was a snore. Such a disappointment. I didn’t really like the compulsory creation of a love interest for HP in the books either, but I liked her sassiness and the movie cut all of that out.

    I loved Ginny in the books. LOVED. Hated her in the films, but I never blamed Bonnie. I knew she had basically nothing to work with and the second I saw that they changed Harry and Ginny’s first kiss so dramatically I knew she was not the one to blame. Stupid writers.

    I like Bonnie. Her fashion is a bit unusual for my tastes, but it’s clear she doesn’t care and is having fun anyway. I find her charming. Luna Lovegood’s romper did make me LOL, though.

      SO AGREE on the first kiss. What a stupid change. It’s way more cinematic in the book and would have given Bonnie some opportunity to at least work with SOMETHING. Ginny’s one of the most shafted characters in the book to movie transition.

    Bonnie is especially lovely in the cream satin dress, it really shows off her skin. Plus, sister brought her towel, so dinner must be at the End of the Universe!

    Plus, she is the only starlett in the business that avoids torturous shoes, so, Plus, Plus, Plus for flats and for guts.

      I also love that she always wears flats. It’s so rare to see and I can relate entirely, so good for her!

    Miss Wright looks like she’s having the same “prematurely forty” facial issues as Florence Welch in a lot of these shots. Unfortunate, but fixable–someone get her a better makeup artist STAT!

    Like Emma Watson she has done very well with limited acting talent. But good luck to her! Terrible outfits though.

    I’m still trying to parse the idea of Ginny Weasley as “sassy” and a “major character”, considering Rowling used her in one book and then forgot about her until it was time to force her into a relationship with Harry and derail Harry as a character as well. Poorly written on Rowling’s part and there wasn’t much the scriptwriter and producers could do with a character who inexplicably went from background to ZOMG!Love Interest in the space of half a book since they’d already cast the roles by the time Half-Baked Plot came out.

    That being said, I don’t see anything unusually horrible about Bonnie Wright’s clothes, but her makeup seems to be really hit or miss.

      If you go through the books again, keeping an eye out for Ginny, you’ll see she’s totally not underdeveloped, and clearly meant for Harry (He ends up finding family in the only family who’s ever been… well, a family to him, she has Lily’s hair, she’s as brave as he is, she makes him laugh and pulls him out of his mega-sulks). And that she’s kind of hilarious and feisty. None of that was a last minute decision. And say what you will about J.K. Rowling (though I’ll clearly disagree with all of it) the last accusation you can make about her plots is that they’re underbaked. She planned that shit for five years.

    • Gillian

      I’m going to strongly disagree with you about Ginny. There are hints to her personality throughout all the books, and especially by book five, she really becomes into her own. Harry then falls for her in book six. It made perfect sense to me and I saw it coming from book two, personally.

    Oh god, has Luna Lovegood had a nose job? NOO00oo!!

    I’ve seen those shoes from #6 in lots of ‘groovy’ shops that The Youth frequent. Yikes. They come in every color of the rainbow, this blue is one of the better choices – at least they’re not neon.

    Yes, she should wear flats if she wants to, but they can still tie in with the rest of her outfit. I think this one needs a stylist who will work with her, rather than trying to overhaul her.

    strange face, poor acting and need some stylist!

    i think with the right choices she could be as timelessly stunning as Mrs. Cambridge. But these are not the looks here. There’s a hint of beauty in the wedding dress, but with her special coloring she needs a stylist who really knows stuff. Do something else with the hair, something else with the makeup, something entirely else with the tightness, snugness, and length of all her clothes. And there has got to be better footwear for those dogs of hers than what is offered here.

    My issue with the HP franchise is they deleted the spirit of most of the characters including Harry, the Dursleys, the Weasleys, Hagrid, and Prof. McGonagall. The only ones they got right were Dumbledore, Draco, and Snape.

    Just NO on Luna Lovegood’s crotchtacular shorts. And WHY does Bonnie dress so OLD? I’m 34 and she looks older than I do. Flats are totally fine, but they should at least go with the outfit, no?? She’s too cute to dress to frumpy!

    Let’s not forget that the movies turned Ron into a bumbling, frightened idiot AND gave Hermione all his good lines. I will never forgive them for this.
