The Hunger games has taken the world by storm and now 11 of the world’s most famous fashion designers are giving their take on Katniss Everdeen’s Fire Dress from the book/film.
I’m not really an expert on fashion, but some of these are very cool and others are just down right ridiculous. The designers that participated in the INSTYLE feature include: Christian Siriano, Tommy Hilfiger, Rachel Roy, Tadashi Shoji, Charlotte Ronson, Nicole Miller, Christian Cota, Tibi, Erin Fetherston, The Blonds & BCBGeneration. Amazingly, I’ve actually heard of a couple of those people.
Here’s the description of the dress from the book by Suzanne Collins:
“I am dressed in what will either be the most sensational or the deadliest costume in the opening ceremonies. I’m in a simple black unitard that covers me from ankle to neck. Shiny leather boots lace up to my knees. But it’s the fluttering cape made of streams of orange, yellow, and red and the matching headpiece that define this costume. Cinna plans to light them on fire just before our chariot rolls into the streets.”
