It’s T minus 3 days until The Hunger Games opens! And yes, we already have tickets (and no, we will not be dressing up as our favorite characters, though we hope others at the theatre do). This movie has strong characters and a really unique plot, and one of the reasons we’re excited to see it brought to life is because fashion and beauty play such an important role–they’re really a part of the story. The fact that a stylist is a pivotal character says a lot about how image can change people’s perceptions.
There’s been a lot written lately about how the characters and their looks were coneptualized. From how Tom Ford influenced Lenny Kravitz’ Cinna, to Katniss’ $30,000 hair, read on for how the look of The Hunger Games came to be.
