It must be tough to be Katniss Everdeen, lady champion of Panem’s District 12. In “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” Katniss (played by Jennifer Lawrence) must once again enter the Hunger Games arena in a televised, multi-day fight to the death with her peers. And, of course, this is less than a year after she and her One True Love, Peeta (Josh Hutcherson), narrowly escaped being murdered in round one of the Hunger Games.
No, it’s not all fun and (hunger) games, being Katniss, but there are a few perks to her newfound champion status. Namely, a massive sartorial upgrade. Along with her newfound riches, anti-femme Katniss gets a boost in the style department in round two. Read on to see all 27 of her fierce looks from “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.”
