Fans ‘confused’ by Emma Watson’s ‘gravity-defying’ dress: ‘What in the wingardium leviosa’

Love it or hate it, there’s no denying Emma Watson’s latest style statement is spellbinding.

The “Harry Potter” star shared several images from a campaign for her and brother Alex Watson’s new gin brand, Renais, on Instagram Monday — but fans couldn’t get past her avant-garde ensemble in one particular photo.

Plucked from Loewe’s spring 2023 collection, Watson’s pale blue draped minidress featured wacky wiring beneath the bodice that made it appear to be “defying gravity,” as one commenter pointed out in the comments.

“What in the wingardium leviosa is that dress,” another quipped, invoking the “Harry Potter” charm used to make objects levitate.

“This is what happens when you say LeviOsa instead of Leviosa,” a third joked — referencing a memorable scene from the first flick in which Watson’s character, Hermione Granger, schools classmate Ron Weasley on how to properly pronounce the spell.

“How is that dress on your body? Hanging from your ears?” a fourth asked.

Other hilarious comments from “confused” followers included, “I think someone forgot to take the hangers out of her dress before she put it on,” and, “Emma be lookin like a closed umbrella.”

For more Page Six Style …

This isn’t the first Loewe design to leave social media users thoroughly baffled.

Gabrielle Union and Emma Corrin have both stepped out in the brand’s surrealist leather balloon bras, while Kaia Gerber has modeled the luxury label’s “mop”-like balloon pumps.

And when Kendall Jenner showed off a padded leather bomber jacket from the brand in a December Instagram post, someone joked the $7,750 style was “giving scrotum.”
