The Hunger Games

LA Premiere
Hands up if the The Hunger Games has consumed every second of your spare time... *raises hand*. I admit it; I'm obsessed. Every morning, afternoon, night and time in-between is spent reading the books and eagerly anticipating the release of the movie on March 23rd (UK), a day in which I can assure you that "the world will be watching." (bad joke?)

Elizabeth Banks @ The Hunger Games 2012
In a bid to tie myself over until the movie hits cinemas, I have been looking at the red (black?) carpet looks from the LA Premier last night (Monday 13th). Main stars of the movie; Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth (accompanied by girlfriend Miley Cyrus), Josh Hutcherson and Elizabeth Banks looked every bit the part of their on-screen roles. Elizabeth Banks looked fierce in a Haute Couture Versace Spring 2012 gown and spoke of her on-screen characters - Effie Trinket - style:
"I really am inspired by her sartorial choices"..."My wardrobe used to be black all the time, but now I add colours"
Liam Hemsworth & Miley Cyrus
@ The Hunger Games 2012
The neon colour of the dress was every bit the part in terms of Effie Trinkets feisty and mean character, as well as The Hunger Games 'mockingjay' pin logo.

Another star making an impact was 
Liam Hemsworth; accompanied by Hollywood star girlfriend Miley Cyrus. The couple looked very handsome side by side with Liam in a dapper D&G suit, while Miley wore a gorgeous, two-piece Pucci lace skirt and top. Critics are calling the two-piece "skimpy", but I quite like it!
The 22 year old Australian actor is set to see his career sky-rocket with his role as Gale Hawthorne (best friend to leading character Katniss Everdeen) and was, in my opinion, a great choice for the role of Gale as he has the exact look that I envisioned in my head when reading the books. I can't wait to see him in action!

Jennifer Lawrence
@ The Hunger Games 2012
Last but certainly not least, was the main star of the movie; Jennifer Lawrence. The actress will be playing the lead role of Katniss Everdeem - a sixteen year old girl from District 12 who took over the role as head of house when her father was tragically killed in a mine explosion. When her sister Prim is chosen to face the 74th Hunger Games, Katniss steps forward as tribute to take her sisters place. She is brave, with a side of rebellion and defiance to The Capitol and people of Panem - the main and richest district - so it will be interesting to see if Jennifer Lawrence does the part justice. Whether she does or not, her matalic gold, floor length, Prabal Gurung gown at the premiere was definitely exectued to perfection; she created the same reaction from onlookers as her character Katniss did in the books when she is being interviewed before the games begin; "Ooh! Ahh!"

There were so many great looks from the Premiere, however the above mentioned were my particular favourites. 
Now I want to hear from you! Which celebs caught your attention and why? Let me know in the comments below. 


Just as a little extra; If you have been hiding from the world and haven't yet seen the trailer or don't really know anything about The Hunger Games, I am going to leave this trailer here below and then advise you to head over the Amazon or Waterstones to buy the books - You won't regret it!
