A fourteen-year-old hormone bomb

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows:

"Ginny and Gabrielle, both wearing golden dresses, looked even prettier than usual...

...

'Yes, my tiara sets off the whole thing nicely,' said Auntie Muriel in a rather carrying whisper. "But I must say, Ginevra's dress is far too low cut.'"

Oh Muriel, you old bat - you would think that.

Ok - so technically Ginny is around 16 during Bill & Fleur's wedding, but I thought the quote suited her anyways.

FYI, this particular dress is modeled after this Beading Love Dress from Tobi.com. Fleur ends up donning a (fairly) simple dress, and it's unlikely she would have let her bridesmaids outshine her at her own wedding. Since the book only stipulates her bridesmaid dress to be gold, I picked one with a simple silhouette instead of anything too racy (read: deep necklines) since Fleur's 11-year old sister also had to wear one.
