The costumes of Hunger Games Catching Fire

The Hunger Games costumes were so amazing that they definitely deserve a separate post. It was so nice to discover that the movie’s costume designer Trish Summerville, has chosen (with some exceptions) to work with new and upcoming designers, that created fresh and surprising pieces.
By far the most impressive was the wedding dress that Katniss wore for the grand entrance to the games kickoff. 

I saw an interview where Jennifer Lawrence was talking about how excited she was about wearing that incredible creation and how after some hours it turned out a nightmare, as it was very heavy, it itched and was very hard to move with.
But for the rest of us who didn’t have the chance to see it, the dream of trying such a wonder is enough. The dress was created by the Jakartan designer Tex Saverio, a young designer who has been described as the "Alexander McQueen of Indonesia". Saverio's work has been worn by international celebrities such as Lady Gaga (who chose to wear Saveiro for her Lady Gaga Fame advertising campaign) and Kim Kardashian.

Then it’s the one-shouldered sweater vest that Katniss wore over her father’s leather coat in a scene that takes place in District 12, a real buzz piece over the internet.

The piece was created by Maria Dora, a well known Los Angeles based knitwear designer. She talks so honestly about how she got involved in the project that probably changed her trajectory here.

And finally, Effie Trinket (Elizabeth Banks), who has become more and more extravagant, wore an Alexander McQueen couture design when she returned to District 12 for the reaping.

Which one was your favorite?
