I just spent the last few days in a reading-induced coma curled up with The Hunger Games trilogy. If you haven’t heard of it by now, well, where the hell have you been?
But seriously. More importantly, go to your local Barnes & Noble and pick up the series right this moment. Don’t even finish reading this post.
Now on to why I’m creating this post.
In the trilogy, the writer (Suzanne Collins) created fantastical looks - a dress on fire, a person with green skin, a woman who looks like a tiger - which all made perfect sense while using my imagination. But, the entire time I’m reading the books I keep thinking, “How are they going to make these looks into reality?”
Here’s Katniss’ dress on fire look from a couple of designers via InStyle.com. The short orange dress is from BCBGeneration is nothing like what’s in the book, but I think it’s my favorite. I do like the Rachel Roy incarnation with the flowing skirt in the back. However, I think it’s going to be more like the Charlotte Ronson black cat suit and fire-y cape combo.
