It’s kind of hilarious to see how fashion designers insert themselves into geeky series. Just like with Bella Swan’s wedding dress for Breaking Dawn, Part 1, famous designers like Christian Siriano and Charlotte Ronson have now offered up their sketches for Katniss Everdeen’s “girl on fire” dress in The Hunger Games. It’s the gown that Cinna (Lenny Kravitz) designs that helps her make such a splash in the Capitol and which sets her apart as fierce and powerful.
Here’s the rub: We’ve already seen Katniss’ fire dress, modeled by Jennifer Lawrence in the Hunger Games trailer. So these are coming a little late in the game; costume designer Judianna Makovsky has gone with a red theme, it appears. Interestingly, no one seems to have acknowledged the series’ description of light-reflecting jewels that make Katniss dazzle. But let’s play along and see what the other designers would’ve done if given the chance.
