capitol couture(!!!)

Unless you’ve recently awoken from a cryogenic slumber, you’ve at least heard, more likely partaken in the hubbub surrounding the post-apocalyptic young adult series The Hunger Games, whose film adaptation hits US screens on March 23rd of this year. I personally have not been this excited for a film release since my 8-year old birthday post-slumber party screening of Disney’s The Little Mermaid (new fact: I have a juvenile and unhealthy fondness for mermaids, and as a child, would whisper “I know you’re real!” into the ocean).

Fans like myself have been anticipating photos of each new outfit by costume designer Judianna Makovsky with baited breath, and so far, they’ve done nothing but amplify Hunger Games fever. Take a look at the famous girl-on-fire outfit created for Jennifer Lawrence’s Katniss Everdeen teased just days ago:

I’m particularly losing my mind over the looks created for Elizabeth Banks’ Effie Trinket (well, of course, she wears McQueen booties) who’s smokin’ in all her futuristic rococo glory. Pastel coifs, you guys!!


The latest Hunger Games marketing move brings us a fashion & culture magazine exhibiting the whimsical fashions of citizens of the Capitol!! I’m so so into this.
