The Hunger Games: Elizabeth Banks In Versace

Who: Elizabeth Banks

Where: At the LA premiere of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire held at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles

Wearing: A strapless orange Versace gown, featuring gold detailing on the bodice, teamed with a copper box clutch and Jimmy Choo heels

Verdict: So I was already blown away by Elizabeth Bank’s amazing red carpet choices so far on this Hunger Games promo tour and I thought it would be hard to top the stunning Elie Saab gown, but this vibrant figure-hugging Versace gown is breathtaking.

Everything from the silhouette to the colour to the exquisite detailing on the bodice this is one gorgeous gown and it looks incredible on her – it really does show off her amazing body and I love how she finished off her look with a modern and fresh hairdo.

Do you prefer this orange beauty or the metallic glitz of the Elie Saab couture?

The Hunger Games: Elizabeth Banks Wows In Elie Saab & Alexander McQueen


So The Hunger Games: Catching Fire has taken on Europe ahead of its November 21 release, and we’ve already seen the stars hit London, Paris, Berlin, Madrid and Rome. For months I have been excited about the red carpet looks, Jennifer Lawrence completely wowed me when she was promoting the first movie in that gorgeous gold lame Prabal Gurung gown. But with Jennifer’s pixie crop, that I am not sure I like, and her constant need to wear Dior, for me the Catching Fire red carpet has all about Elizabeth Banks so far.

The actress who plays the flamboyant Effie in the film has completely blown me away with her red carpet fashion choices – from the gorgeous custom-made Jason Wu gown that she wore to the London premiere to the stunning embellished silver maxi in Berlin and the Alexander McQueen beauties in-between.


My favourite look so far has to be this metallic embellished Elie Saab Haute Couture gown from the autumn/winter 2013 collection. Everything about this dress is just perfection. Presented as a bridesmaid dress in the Haute Couture runway show, this gown is stunning – I love the ombre-effect to the embellished detailing and the sexy elegance of the sweetheart neckline. What I also adore is that the look is finished off perfectly with gorgeous drop earrings and wavy hair.

Another great look had to be her Paris premiere gown, a striking Alexander McQueen gown featuring colourful embroidery and beading to the neckline and waist with a feather belt. Not quite as glitzy as the Elie Saab but just as striking – I love the colourful neckline and the feathered detailing around the waist. Simply gorgeous.

What are your thoughts so far on The Hunger Games promo tour – have you been impressed with Elizabeth Bank’s red carpet looks?

Hunger Games: Effie Barbie Goes On Tour


It seems it isn’t just Jennifer Lawrence, Elizabeth Banks, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth who are travelling the world to promote The Hunger Games – Catching Fire film – it looks like Effie Barbie couldn’t resist getting in on the act as well.

Elizabeth Banks’ mini-me, is living it up on the film’s global tour – hitting the red carpet, having her make-up done, wearing incredible headgear, sipping champagne, and even photobombing the stars as they promote the movie.

My Effie Barbie is in the post and I can’t wait for her to arrive so when I saw these piccies on Elizabeth’s Facebook page I just had to share – they are just so hilarious. I think my favourite has to be where Effie is having her hair and make-up touched up – such a diva!!!

Anyone else a little jealous of a Barbie doll?

Vanity Fair Oscar Party: Elizabeth Banks Wearing Alexander McQueen

Elizabeth-banks-VF2013Who: Elizabeth Banks

Where: At the 2013 Vanity Fair Oscars party, held at the Sunset Tower in Hollywood

Wearing: A poppy print organza Alexander McQueen gown from the spring/summer 2013 collection, teamed with a plexi tortoiseshell belt and metal honeycomb skull box clutch

Verdict: I actually hoped that someone might have worn this to the main event, but I think everyone was playing it a little too safe, so I was pleased to see that Elizabeth Banks added some colour to the Vanity Fair party.

As well as being vibrant, I love that orange poppy print, I also love the sexy vibe of the low-cut bodice and the glitz of the Alexander McQueen gold accessories. The only thing I can’t quite get on board with is the Jedward hair-do – is it just me or does that not work so well???
