Girl on Fire

On March 23rd, the world will finally be watching the premiere of the epic saga, The Hunger Games, based on the best-selling novel by Suzanne Collins. The film, set in a futuristic North America, tells the story of Katniss Everdeen, a teenage girl from a poor mining district, and her struggle to be the sole survivor in the Hunger Games, a contest in which teens are pitted against each other for televised entertainment.

I know I cannot wait to see the fashion in the film, which ranges from demure vintage in the poor districts, to crazy, Gaga-esque ensembles in the capitol. In the opening ceremony of the games, Katniss rocks a stunning cape that is engulfed in flames.

Rising star, Jennifer Lawrence, who plays Katniss in the film took her character’s nickname, “girl on fire,” to heart in her latest red carpet looks. Here are some of my favorites…


Here, Jennifer Lawrence dazzles us in Jimmy Choo heels and a Prabal Gurung gown at the Los Angeles premiere of The Hunger Games. The fiery, gold lame gown was a perfect tribute to her character. All-over gold may be too much for the college student, so work some gold into your wardrobe with bold gold metallic heels or a clutch.


Here she is wearing a red hot Calvin Klein gown at the Academy Awards where she was nominated for best actress for her role in Winter’s Bone. The gown is perfectly form fitting, yet simple, which doesn’t take away from the attention-grabbing hue. We can take some helpful style advice from Jennifer: when wearing red, keep your hair and makeup simple and wear minimal accessories.


Lawrence was pretty in pink in a stunning Oscar De La Renta gown at the 2011 Screen Actors Guild Awards. I love the bold contrast of her bright gown with black accessories.  For a more wearable take, add a pop of neon to your spring wardrobe by pairing a skinny, neon belt with neutral basics.


Lawrence was stylish and sophisticated in Tom Ford at the Paris premiere. Although the dress is simple in black, she stays true to her Katniss sense of style with the gold details on the back and gold heels.
