Top Five Fashion Moments in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Movie

We know that The Hunger Games: Catching Fire movie is one of the most phenomenal movies in the decade. It has garnered millions of fans from around the globe. Aside from that, the costume designer of the film has created gorgeous outfits that inspired many style lovers. Here are top five fashion moments in the movie.

1. The mockingjay outfit created by Cinna

I’ve written before about Katniss’s amazing transformation as a mockingjay. At first, she donned a massive wedding gown, the one that she’s supposed to wear on her wedding day. It was charred into bits by fake flames and she was shown wearing a mockingjay attire with feathers and wings. It was a fantastic creation and as perfect as a symbol of the upcoming revolution.

2. At the Capitol party

Many fans of the movie noticed the lead character’s gorgeous hairstyle for the Capitol party. Katniss perfectly showed off an edgy look coupled with fabulous makeup in the said scene. The black dress, floor-length frock, highlighted her pretty face. She completed it with sparkling accessories and defiant smile.

3. Katniss’s interview with Caesar Flickerman

Before Katniss showcased her mockingjay attire, she was interviewed by Caesar Flickerman. As usual, she was asked about personal questions. Later on, the people noticed her huge wedding gown. It was a beautiful creation. The full skirt and the intricate details are remarkably stylish.

4. At the tribute parade

During the tribute parade for the 75th Hunger Games or the Quarter Quell, all eyes are at the two victors from District 12. Unlike the 74th Hunger Games, they showcased more beautiful ensembles.

5. District 11 appearance

The outfit for Katniss in their District 11 victory tour was fabulous. It was a stylish jumpsuit paired with chic footwear. It was perfect for the emotional scene at District 11 victory tour.

The whole movie was a fashion realization for all of us. The outfit design for the people in District 12 is appropriate for the scenes before the Quarter Quell. President Snow donned perfect attire as a cruel leader. The victors who played at the Quarter Quell wore suitable ensembles. Johanna Mason looked fabulous on her 75th Hunger Games suit. Obviously, we noticed the stylish creations of Cinna.

Channelling The Great Gatsby – Dress Like Our Favourite Vintage Style Fashion

It is easy to see how this book captured the imagination of movie makers and threatre directors alike, all were inspired to make The Great Gatsby a reality on the movie screen.

The era itself had so many ideas and conflicting contrasts to chose from, mainly the extreme contrast between rich and poor in the 20s.

With Leo Dicaprio taking the starring role in the forthcoming new movie, we can imagine the extravagant sets, showing us the most lavish lifestyle of the 20s. It is hard to imagine how one can top the original adaptation of the book, made in the 70s.

It tells the story of a poor boy who made it rich by bootlegging, coming back to high society and trying to win back his young love, Daisy, the waif like creature played by Mia Farrow. It is a story of love lost that everyone likes to enjoy.. The glitz and glamour of the roaring twenties was illustrated perfectly in the 70s version. The movie itself was a homage to fashion designs, all of the era’s style was displayed by the arrays of 20s flapper gowns. From Daisy’s dresses to those of the extra’s, all were carefully designed with a multitude of spring and summer blossom colours. Either watercolour prints or carefully laced, they were all there to leave a lasting impression to the viewer. Colours were the main characters of the movie. Amber, burnt orange, green tea, tangerine, peach, blushing pinks, aquamarine blue. Seas of colours in soft hues, harmoniously going from one character’s dress to another.

The elegant Jay Gatsby was ironically being looked down on by Daisy’s husband, the upper crust, yet tasteless socialite. Jay had climbed to the crème de la crème, with elegance and style, his parties had become synonymous with glamour, where the rich and famous clamoured to be seen. At his parties, there was always an unlimited amount of the finest beaded flapper dresses.

In reality, we can imitate the 20s flapper style with ease. For a casual day wear look, find yourself a dress with a straight cut, preferably made of thin material like silk, rayon, or jersey. The most important factor is the colour, choose soft, floral hues for an memorable outfit. For an elegant evening look, a full-on totally beaded dress may be a bit dated, but you could opt for something with either a beaded neckline and simply flowing skirt, or a simpler version of a beaded flapper dress. The most important thing is the silhouette, keep it short and boxy, to be in line with the 20s look. Team it with some tattoo stockings, this season’s hottest fashion, then you will add that extra modern flair to that vintage inspired outfit.
