Simon Cowell could really use Hermione right about now.

The 53-year-old was accessorizing with some big, round bifocals on his stoic face.

It’s not the first time that Cowell has been seen in the fancy eye wear. They first appeared on him in 2010 on an U.K. “X Factor” live show.

Cowell's jeans and sweater were covered in what looks like stains (or, are they rain drops?) -- stains that a little witch with a magic wand could easily fix with a "Reparo" spell. Too bad she wasn't his date for the evening -- instead, he was photographed with comedian and "Talent" co-judge David Walliams.

In other Cowell news, his production company is reportedly making a film about a dancing dog. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Syco Entertainment is partnering with Britain’s Vertigo Films to make a movie about 2012 “Britain’s Got Talent” winner, Pudsey the dog.
