Who Wore What at the Goblin Debate?
I’ll tell you what, darlings, politics is the new home for fashion, and whether you’re debating, or voting, or lying through your governmental gobs, as long as your clothing makes a statement, then you can do no wrong. At least in my opinion!
At the Goblin Debate this evening, between the staunchly stoic Chief Warlock Alistair Colquhoun and Goblin Spokesperson Urgerik the Smith, politicians, celebrities, Goblins, and the good but lowly people of Britain, all gathered together to get through a muddy conversation about where we’re headed. Is it war? Is it peace? I don’t know, darling, but here’s what I do know: it’s better dressing.
In the front row, I noticed the Senior Undersecretary Kalei Tenadii, wearing a striking white ensemble. This sharp blazer, corset and trouser combination, paired with her natural brunette locks and poised expression, had me wondering many things. Who’s she wearing? How much did it cost? And can I get it in pink?
But sometimes, not even apparel can disguise body language, as sat to the witches’ immediate left was our Minister for Magic, Matthew Soo, in his usual smart and discreet garb. A suit. A tie. A neutral expression. All the typical embroideries of our commander in chief, apart from one not so usual thing; Soo’s unquenched romantic interest in his Undersecretary. One could discern this not only from how close they chose to sit together, darling, but also from Soo’s unflinching focus on the debate stage, which if you ask me was an obvious attempt to dissuade attention from the fact he’s got the hots for Tenadii. Scathing or saucy? Perhaps that should be the next debate!
In attendance, one also noticed the sleek Irish Headmistress of Hogwarts, Aoife O’Keeffe, in a usual classic but classy black dress, and an impressive set of jewels hanging around her neck. But of all the items she wore, her expression is what clinched it all together for me. Unimpressed. Disappointed. Gloomy. I know, darlings, I know, she could benefit from a splash of baby blue, or even a sprinkle or a tinkle of blonde highlight in that ravenesque head of hers, but I have to tell you, there’s just something poetic about a morose witch in black attending a political debate in which the logistics of Goblins potentially joining Hogwarts is discussed.
I myself chose to wear a dress made of dragon-hide, paired with gloves and a hat, that I’d also worn to the funeral of Matvey Golovin. Why not re-wear your best, darling, especially when an outfit speaks for itself. So whether you’re pro-Goblins, or pro-Division, or even if you’re not in the slightest bit interested, I say to you, go to your wardrobe, tear it apart, and find a statement piece – or alternatively, step into the nearest broken floo and get lost. These are challenging times and the last thing we need to see are fashion faux pas! *smoky laugh*
