Hungry for the Fashion of the Hunger Games

As mentioned in our newsletter we've been enjoying the audio books of Suzanne Collins' Hunger Games trilogy. I have been living in the dream world she has created for over a week. I adore her heroin Katniss Everdeen. Rarely in pop culture do we get awesome, strong, brave female leads. However, the males in the story are interesting and leave their own impressions, but one of our favorite subplots to the story is the fashion! In each book there is lovely delicious descriptions of unique fashions. From cocktail dresses that look like they're on fire to a wedding dress that transforms into a smoldering bird. In fact fashion is such a focus of the series that they created a website dedicated to it, Capitol Couture. The first movie from the series opens on March 23rd and limited images are surfacing. I wanted to share some of these with our Time Bombers so you can be inspired by the fashionable subplot too!

Check out the official trailer

Katniss with Gale hunting in the woods. The boots are what I think stand out here

Here we see the futuristic over-the-top awesome look of Effie and the beautiful vintage-ish look of Katniss. The dress looks like it could be from the 1940s 

This is a picture of Effie from the fashion website for the Hunger Games, Capitol Couture 

China Glaze is making a line of nail polishes inspired by the series

Here both Peeta and Katniess are dressed in their suits worn for their chariot ride through the Capitol. 

Here Katniss has just finished her interview. There is some criticism about the portrayal of this dress. It is nothing like described in the book. In the book it is all jewels that appear to be on fire. Who knows maybe they are trying to trick us and in the movie the dress will be breathtaking! 

Here are shots of the clothing she wears in the Hunger Games. In the preview they show a great shot of a pair of boots that are pretty awesome 

Still haven't caught Hunger Game fever! Order them and today!
