Shopping: The Hunger Games Capitol Couture Collection At Net-a-Porter


At the weekend I finally saw The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, the highly anticipated second film in the trilogy, and it certainly lived up to the hype and stayed true to the book. As well as making a star out of Jennifer Lawrence, the film has also catapulted costume designer Trish Summerville into the limelight with her fabulous fashion choices for the likes of Katniss and Effie.

The second film didn’t disappoint me on the fashion front, I loved Katniss’ updated hunting gear with knitwear wraps over her leather jacket, her sporty Lucas Hugh gear and the gorgeous wedding dress that turned into a mockingjay, but most of all I adored the crazy, OTT fashion choices of Effie, and it was lovely to see my Barbie doll’s outfit on the big screen!!!


Well it seems that Net-a-Porter also loved Trish Summerville’s choices as the luxury online retailer has teamed up with the movie’s production company, Lionsgate to create a collection based on the movie.

Called ‘Capital Couture’, the 19-piece collection features everything from jewellery to statement sweatshirts, dresses and even replicas of the Hunger Games sporty looks. Ranging in price from £60 to £800, there is something to meet everyone’s price point, and I think the t-shirts and sweatshirts are going to be the first to sell out.

I saw the collection last week and I loved the leather jacket, super soft and a classic piece, as well as the the bow and arrow ear cuff, and the ‘Girl on Fire’ sweatshirt.

Below are my favourite pieces, which would you love to add to your wardrobe?

Bag Lust: The Victoria Beckham Seven


Handbags get me every time, I’m always lusting over at least one, whether it’s an emerging designer such as Sophie Hulme or just a great bag I have seen on the high street – I’m always on the look out for my next purchase.

There is just something about carrying a new bag that gives me a great feeling – I have to be honest I’m more about handbags than shoes.

I’m a lover of bright coloured bags, I have pink, blue and even yellow, but not an acid yellow one. This mini-tote by Victoria Beckham is so lust worthy, I love the invigorating pop of colour, the sports-luxe vibe to it with it being a bowling bag, and I adore the matte-leather.

Now if only this gorgeous Victoria Beckham ‘Seven’ bowling bag was a little more in my price range, at £1,175 I think this beauty is just for my dreams – but oh boy what great dreams I will have with this on my arm!!!

Are you a fan of Victoria Beckham’s handbag collection?


Shop Her Style: Nina Dobrev In Matthew Williamson


Who: Vampire Diaries star Nina Dobrev

Where: At the Entertainment Weekly Screen Actors Guild Awards pre-party held at the Chateau Marmont in California at the weekend

Wearing: A strapless colourful floral-print silk-chiffon Matthew Williamson gown featuring an internal boned bodice, pleated skirt, and crystal embellishments on the side waist panels from the pre-spring 2013 collection, teamed with an Elie Saab box clutch

Verdict: I love that Nina Dobrev is never afraid to make a statement on the red carpet and this is a bold floral print and she is wearing it well. I love the flattering cut to the maxi dress with the corset bodice and the flowing pleated skirt.

What makes this look for me is that Nina plays down the bold print with her flawless-barley-there make-up and no jewellery – she is letting the dress shine. I just love how effortless her red carpet looks are.

Shop Her Style: Love the look and want to snap up Nina’s dress? Well get out your credit card as this beauty is currently on Net-a-Porter for £1,695.

Giffoni Film Festival: Dianna Agron In Prada and Glittery Miu Miu Shades

Who: Glee star Dianna Agron

Where: At the 2012 Giffoni Film Festival in Giffoni Valle Piana, Italy

Wearing: A printed Prada dress from the spring/summer 2012 collection, Miu Miu Noir glittery sunglasses, and thong flats with red stones finished off her look

Verdict: So, now I know why Miss Dianna wasn’t at the Teen Choice Awards as she was enjoying the sunshine in Italy. At first glance I was worried that it was a little too relaxed for a film festival, I was thinking about the glamour of say Cannes, but I think she actually pulled this cute dress off really well – the bold print was a great touch.

But what draws my attention the most with this look has to be those incredible red glittery cat-eye shades, I seriously swooned when I saw them on her. I am a sunglasses addict and I am in love with these beauties.

What makes this even more perfect has to be the fact that they available on Net-a-Porter, so if you want to recreate Dianna’s look during our mini heatwave you can snap them up, granted they are £225, tad pricey, but just think how pretty they will look!!! Pairing with a bold printed dress is optional – but it works rather well.

Do you love Dianna’s look or do you wish she had gone a more glam? And tell me what you think of the Miu Miu shades – will you be snapping them up?
