Hunger Games might not be out until November but the marketing of the film has already begun and I have to be honest I am pretty excited after seeing these incredible Capitol Portraits featuring everyone from my favourite character the flamboyant Effie Trinket, to Katniss’ love interests Peeta Mellark and Gale Hawthorne, as well as the first real look of English actor Sam Claflin as the Capitol’s golden boy Finnick Odair.
The most incredible portrait though has to be Katniss played by Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence, who looks divine in her layered white wedding gown, which has the most exquisite Swarovski crystal-covered corset that sits under an intricate wire metal cage that is suppose to signify fire, while the features represent the mockingjay.
I love, love, love what costume designer Trish Summerville (you know, who did the costumes for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) has done with these portraits, makes me more excited to see the film. I also love that the designer spoke to Hollywood Reporter and shared a few details about the dress – as unlike reported Katniss’ wedding dress hasn’t been designed by Alexander McQueen but rather a designer named Tex Saverio in Jakarta.
It is seriously dreamy and I am so hoping that Barbie does another Hunger Games collaboration - as I love Katniss in her hunting gear but I would pay a lot of money to have Barbie in a replicate of this wedding dress!!!!
Katniss isn’t the only one wearing designer clothes – her hubbie Peeta is wearing a cream suit by Korean-based designer, Juunj, who Summerville describes as ”unbelievably talented” to the Hollywood Reporter. But what shines out on Peeta’s portrait has to be those kicks, which are by Rick Owens – seriously love them!!!
Alexander McQueen’s designs weren’t left out though as the fashion house dressed Effie Trinket in a red ruffled dress and matching shoes – loving the pink rinse and her gloves!!!
