The costumes in the Hunger Games are incredible visual treats especially once we arrive at the Capitol. One of the especially fun characters to watch on screen is Effie Trinket. From that first bright fuchsia dress to that pale pink brocade one to the one entirely covered in freaking butterflies, she never wears anything boring.
There’s a chance that the fashions of our world might not be able to keep up with Effie. She’s one of the few who would might have to tone down her style for our world. Let’s think of these more like ‘inspired by’ looks.
We’ll start with very three dimension dress by Alexandre Vauthier.
Next up, there’s this Zac Posen with a gorgeous fabric that would be right up her alley.
We’re continuing our celebration of Catching Fire’s release this week with some Hunger Games posts. Today, we’re asking ourself ‘What Would Katniss Everdeen Wear?’
This one was actually kind of fun because there’s a built in mechanism for approaching this. The Capitol gives each tribute a stylist for the Hunger Games and Cinna is paired with Katniss. Katniss herself is very much not inclined towards wearing fancy clothing or the pomp and circumstance that comes with it all. So almost all of the looks included here are either looks I could see her wearing during the pre-Games, the Victory Tour, or during events when she’s back in District 12 and yet needs to be presentable.
We’ll start with this gorgeous Christian Siriano dress.
One thing that Katniss has always had has been a great looking leather jacket to wearing while hunting. This 3.1 Phillip Lim one looks like a fashionable upgrade for it.
Both of these pieces by Daniel Vosovic and Anna Sui respectively feel like something might be a bit of a compromise between Cinna and Katniss when it comes to wearing things around the house in her District. They’re casual enough to remind people that she’s from one of the outer districts without looking too sloppy.
