Look-of-the-Day

Leave the district.  Run off.  Live in the woods. You and I, we could make it.”  It seems The Hunger Games is everywhere you turn these days, and after reading the entire series in a couple of days, now this editor knows why… it’s one of the most amazing books ever written.  Suzanne Collins’ simple words have hundreds of meanings, but more on that later.  As our admiration skyrocketed for both the books and the movie, we realized it was time to dedicate an entire week to the story we can’t get enough of.  This “Tuesday Twosome,” (even if this editor is 100% Team Peeta) are best friends Katniss and Gale, played by Jennifer Lawrence and Liam Hemsworth, on one of their hunting trips.  Liam Hemsworth looks somehow strong, handsome and poor in a worn-in crewneck, hunting boots, ripped pants and a matching vest all in the muted greys and browns of District 12.  In the novel, Katniss’s jacket was an oversized hand-me-down from her deceased father, but costume designer Judianna Makovsky told the LA Times, “We tried that, but it didn’t look good, and she couldn’t move her arms to shoot.”  Instead, they went with a tan leather jacket modeled after 1940s styles from different costume houses.  Her striped pants were made from an 1870s Levi Strauss pattern.  Accessorized with matching boots, her famous long braid and (of course) a bow and arrow, Jennifer Lawrence comes to life as Katniss Everdeen in the film’s opening scene.

  1. So easy to be Team Gale – at first! Bring on Peeta!!! Jennifer Lawrence looks great no matter what outfit she’s in! The costume designers did a great job with this outfit.
