We’re still admittedly giddy from Jennifer Lawrence’s epic Oscars win last month, but you know what? It’s officially time to put the past behind us (for now) and move on to J.Law’s NEWEST project: a little film you might have heard of called The Hunger Games. The flick won’t premiere until November, but this week we’ve been sneaking peeks via Capitol Couture of the characters decked out in, well, couture. Yes, literally. Whereas the first film’s costume designer Judianna Makovsky stuck with pared-down Americana looks and retro clothes from the ’30s, THIS movie’s designer Trish Summerville gave Katniss, Effie Trinket, Haymitch and Caesar a makeover directly from the runways. Recognize the similarities between Effie’s flame-red gown and this look from Alexander McQueen’s Fall 2012 collection above? The flouncy organza ruffles, the strapless top, the exaggerated waist…talk about IDENTICAL! If Effie’s dress is “Phresh Out The Runway” (sorry, Rihanna reference), then that means Katniss’ white gown-slash-probable-wedding-dress most likely is, too…right?

Adorned with a dramatic ruffled skirt and an ornately beaded bust, the strapless dress also comes with hidden MOCKINGJAY silhouette(!!!), which definitely means it’s custom. But the question is, who made it?!
While the dress reminds us (um, and the rest of the internet) of the Alexander McQueen AW12 collection, according to The Telegraph, McQueen representatives have confirmed that the piece is NOT crafted by the brand’s designer Sarah Burton. But she’s not the only one who’s been linked to this iconic look, as Dutch designer Iris van Herpen was originally called out as the brains behind the gown — rumors which were later disputed as well. After scouring style.com all morning, though, we’re personally getting Chanel Spring 2010 and Spring 2011 Couture vibes from the look. However, we can’t forget that Christian Dior is a total PRO at ruffles and luxe details (exhibit A,B and C) and as the label’s face, J.Law is clearly a fan.
