Catching Fire: Capitol Couture


Lionsgate has been getting Hunger Games fans fired up by releasing a series of Capitol portraits from the upcoming movie, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. I first ran across the photos yesterday. So far, seven have been released with more to come. My current favorite is the portrait of Essie Trinket in Alexander McQueen!

Katniss is thought to be in her wedding gown, inspired by McQueen. It's described in the book as being the color of coal, made with tiny feathers and appears to have wings when she lifts her arms. Oh yes, I think this is it. We've also got Cinna, Haymitch and Caesar along with newbies Beetee and Johanna. I don't know about you, but I'm loving the photos and can't wait to see who's next. I suddenly feel the need to read the entire series again.


Seriously, how perfect is the head-to-toe McQueen?













What do you think of the Capitol Couture photos?

These are amazingly beautiful! I also feel like I need to go back and pick up the books and reread at least this one, if not all of them again.

I didn't see the first movie in theaters. I won't make that mistake again I feel like I missed out on the excitement and it made me less than enthused about the movie seeing it at home.

Oh wow these are BEAUTIFUL! I love all of them! Especially Effie and the one of Johanna because that she is literally just how I pictured her when reading the book. I think I'll be rereading the whole series before Catching Fire comes out. :)

I love everything about Katniss. Well, Jennifer Lawrence too for that matter. I just imagined the dress to be black. Because isn't it usually stated in books as 'black as coal" or "coal black". But I loooooooooooove it.

I actually wasn't crazy about the one for Katniss, but that's probably because of the drama and weird feelings surrounding the dress/wedding in the books! And I think it's supposed to be like ash (color wise), when coal burns (the girl on fire...being put out...that's where I go with it- Cinna was very symbolic). It also bothers me that she's standing up and no one else is, and her chair is super plain comparatively (yes I'm picky). Haymitch & Johanna are probably my favorite, just because I feel like their personalities are captured to a T.
