Sure, Jennifer Lawrence may not have been born with dark locks or olive skin, but that doesn't mean a little movie magic (or box of Clairol) can't transform her into District 12 tribute Katniss Everdeen. (I mean, Alex Pettyfer doesn't actually have a face-full of scars nor does Robert Pattinson's skin sparkle in the sun—that we know of). Yet, maybe you're still having a hard time picturing the 20-year-old as the strong-willed heroine of Suzanne Collins' dystopian trilogy. Well, struggle no more because we have a sneak peek of what Jennifer could look like as Katniss in the film adaptation of "The Hunger Games."
We asked "THG" fan and artist Kate Wheeler of Rat Girl Studios to illustrate Jennifer in five of Katniss' signature outfits (designed in the novel by her stylist Cinna): her reaping dress, her presentation costume, her interview dress, her Hunger Games uniform and her simple, gold dress. And all we can say is, we're sold! Click play on the video after the jump to see all five outfits!
My favorite here is undoubtedly the flaming gown that Katniss wears for her pre-Games interview with Caesar Flickerman. "My dress is entirely covered in reflective previous gems, red and yellow and white with bits of blue that accent the tips of the flame design," Katniss says of the dress. "The slightest movement gives the impression I am engulfed in tongues of fire." Simply stunning!
While we love "The Hunger Games" for its gritty, somber narrative, we have a feeling our inner fashionista will thrill at this film adaptation as well!
What do you think, "Hunger Games" fans? Can you see Jennifer as Katniss? Do you think these images are close to what the novel's outfits will look like? Sound off in the comments and on Twitter!
