I love Jena Malone, the red carpet fixture. Jena Malone, the actress, is spirited and very good at what she does. I can't speak for Jena Malone, the real life human, since I don't know her, but I hope she's something like her persona on the promotional circuit. That woman is a ball of fun.

While Jennifer Lawrence has been rather stoic on the current "Hunger Games" press tour and Elizabeth Banks is typically sunny, Malone appears to be having a great time sinking down into the folds of the various voluminous gowns she's been wearing to promote the last film of the series (blush Gauri & Nainika, above; Reem Acra, below). The pose itself is perfectly dramatic — it's something, say, a beleaguered princess would pull — and it's got to feel nice after tottering around the red carpet and posing for an endless stream of photos. What is a large dress if not a wearable duvet, after all?
