Only one event comes along in District 12 that requires specific dress, The Reaping. Katniss and the other teenagers turn out in the best dress they can manage. For this reaping, Katniss' mother lets her wear one of her own dresses, a simple blue one. I created two options, unsure of how fancy the dress would be. The one on the right gets my vote though. Which do you think?
Katniss expresses her confusion for Capitol fashions in her observations of the ever-overdressed Effie Trinket. If a trend exists, Effie will find a way to wear it, and she will manage to do so while wearing every other trend available. Her impractical and fanciful dress is a stark contrast to the simple attire Katniss prefers.
When it comes time to be presented to the masses, Katniss knows she will never be able to compete with the trained public presence of career tributes like Glimmer from the much wealthier District 1. She is sexy, poised, and comfortable with fancy dresses and high heels.
Once the Games begin, Katniss is allowed to return to her fashion comfort level. She is at home in utilitarian leather boots, basic pants and tee, and useful jacket.
Below are some more of The Hunger Games inspired looks. Which fashions are you most looking forward to seeing in the film?
