Hot off the heels of her Oscar win for Silver Linings Playbook, our love affair with Jennifer Lawrence just grows stronger by the day. That’s why we were beyond excited, practically combusting, when we saw the new portraits for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. That’s the second instalment of the hit franchise set in a dystopian world where children are made to fight to the death for sport, for those of you not already familiar with the best-selling trilogy (and why not?!).
Due to hit our screens in November, J-Law plays our heroine, natch, Katniss Everdeen. She’s not so much a people person but does an ace job at firing arrows from a bow, looking absolutely kick-ass and being the most loving, protective sister imaginable.
In the latest shot, we see Katniss looking uber glam in a fetching frothy white frock. It’s bridal-esque with a layered tulle skirt and embroidered bodice with pointy, almost wing-like adornments. She’s carrying a white rose, which die-hard fans will know as being the calling card of President Snow.
But Katniss is not the only one to get all dolled up for the new film. Capitol rep Effie Trinkett, played by Elizabeth Banks, is known for her outlandish attire but now she’s sporting a designer frock, hot of the catwalk! Despite her mad pink hair, the astute among you might recognise that her red dress and shoes are from Alexander McQueen’s Autumn Winter 2012. Nice.
We’re sure there’ll be a few more sartorial surprises in store and we can’t wait to see them all.
