I went to see The Hunger Games Catching Fire last night, it was pretty damn good. There was so much action and it really played out like the book, minus a few things but I’m not going to nit pick because I enjoyed it. I enjoyed it that much that I was blindsided when it ended because I, and I’m guessing a lot of others, read the three books all in one go so could not even begin to remember where the actual ending was!
As always my favourite part of a big blockbuster movie coming out is of course the promo tour, and if the movie has big stars we’re more likely to see some amazing outfits. And this was definitely the case when it came to every single Catching Fire premiere.
There was a lot of Dior from Jennifer Lawrence, which I admit, didn’t always work but somehow she managed to pull her looks off with the help of stunning make up and that fresh new hair cut. There was a lot of contention when it came to Jennifer’s hair cut as there always is in Hollywoodland because we are so used to seeing long wavy <insert hair colour here>
extensions hair and barely any variety. Yes I agree I think Jennifer looked beautiful with long, luscious hair, she was a modern day bombshell with it, but she still is a bombshell with short hair so nothing has changed apart from her looking a bit more edgy and youthful!
I digress, there was a smattering of other designers such as Louis Vuitton, Alexander McQueen and Proenza Schouler at the photocalls and after parties, but exclusively Dior on the red carpets. From London, Berlin, Madrid, Rome, Paris and back to LA premiere Jennifer showcased so many different looks.
My stand out moment was at the Paris premiere, after a disappointing world premiere dress in London she (and her beauty team) were inspired to create this outstanding edgy but chic look. I mentioned in my previous post on the London world premiere how I would have loved to see Jennifer in this dress but in a different colour, I suppose you can’t have both but I was glad she did wear this in the end.
My next favourite was the LA gown, the sheer trend sees absolutely no signs of waning and those who hate it are just going to have to get over it. This gown showed the playful, sexy Jennifer we all know and love with the choppy hair and pink lipstick she totally pulls it off without going to far over to the Kristen Stewart side..
I’m still divided on this being the best dress for Jennifer, but I can’t help but like the beaded detailing it just lifts the dress, and I think the hair wasn’t necessarily as good as it could have been, I guess they were trying out looks to gauge reaction.
I do like this Dior dress coat at the Berlin premiere, and the detailing is divine, but I couldn’t help feeling a little underwhelmed. Although it did inspire me to go and buy this ASOS tuxedo inspired dress.
These were all the dresses that just left me a bit meh. The first Dior at the Madrid premiere reminded me a lot of her SAG Awards dress, it could almost pass for how her dress would have turned out if her gown had actually ripped like everyone imagined. The second creamy yellow dress annoyed me, because for a long time I kept cleaning my computer screen thinking I had a smudge on it. And I guess the third half jacket dress half crop top was edgy for NYC but just no where near as appealing as her others.
