J.K. Rowling in a groovy blue gown

J. K. Rowling, author of the Harry Potter series of books, is caught slightly off-balance by photographers while arriving at the Raisa Gorbachev Foundation Party held at Hampton Court Palace in London on June 6, 2009.

Raisa Gorbachev was the wife of former Soviet premiere Mikhail Gorbachev, who was probably a Gryffindor.
