Hermione Granger paid unusual attention to her appearance and dress for the Yule Ball in 1994. She wore dress robes made of a floaty, periwinkle-blue material, and her usually bushy hair was made sleek and shiny by Sleekeazy's Hair Potion,[2] and twisted up into an elegant knot at the back of her head.

When Hermione arrived the ball on the arm of Viktor Krum, the famous Quidditch player and Durmstrang champion, she received a great deal of positive attention and compliments because of how pretty she looked. Even those who disliked her (such as Draco Malfoy and Pansy Parkinson) could find nothing insulting to say to her.[2]

In 1997, Hermione again wore dress robes to the Wedding of William Weasley and Fleur Delacour. They were floaty and lilac-coloured, and she wore matching shoes. In this outfit, she was positively regarded by Ron, Viktor Krum, and the drunk men on Tottenham Court Road.[3]
