Let's Never Forgive The Grave Injustice Of Padma And Parvati's Yule Ball Outfits

JUST A REMINDER OF THE WORST THING THE BRITISH HAVE EVER DONE TO INDIA.

And yet, let us never forget what happened when the two combined. THIS FUCKIN' SHIT.

The actors, Afshan Azad and Shefali Chowdhury, pulled it off somehow and looked adorable anyway. BUT THAT DOESN'T CHANGE THE FACT THAT THEY DESERVED BETTER.

Let's quickly recap what the books – THE SACRED TEXTS – actually describe the sisters as wearing. Please refer to Chapter 23 of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.

Parvati was waiting for Harry at the foot of the stairs. She looked very pretty indeed, in robes of shocking pink, with her long dark plait braided with gold, and gold bracelets glimmering at her wrists...

Parvati found her sister, Padma, and led her over to Harry and Ron.

"Hi," said Padma, who was looking just as pretty as Parvati in robes of bright turquoise.

ROBES, they say. Not sad excuses for lehengas.

SHOCKING PINK and TURQUOISE, they say. Not matching clichéd pink and orange.

GOLD BRACELETS, they say. Not one pair of ₹20 glass bangles split between two people.
