With less than six months left until the release of Catching Fire, we’ve been anticipating all of the creative promos the studio has in store for the film. In case you’ve forgotten — if you have, shame on you — the first Hunger Games film introduced a puzzle hunt, a fashion website, a nail polish collection, plus all of those glitzy animated posters for, like, Cinna eyeliner and Caesar Flickerman toothpaste. And it looks like the sequel’s starting to fall in line…
Capitol Couture is back once again with a snazzy new look for its relaunch/spring issue titled, “Chroma Nouveau.” And who else but THG‘s resident fashion guru, Effie Trinket (played by Elizabeth Banks), to profile for its first fresh feature before the 75th Hunger Games. (Notice her phenom Victory Tour dress for the spread?) In it, they discuss what it’s like for Katniss and Peeta’s escort when the cameras aren’t rolling:
11:00 am: Effie meets with the designer of the dress she’ll be wearing later this evening. The creation is exquisite; a flamingo’s dream of pink ruffles. “It’s a shame I can only wear it once,” says Effie.
1:00 pm: She sits down to a sumptuous feast filled with the finest of fare and quaffs, accompanied by the most cultured conversation… and served on a mahogany table no less.
4:00 pm: We head to an exclusive unnamed salon — (we can say some of your favorites like Portia & Flavius themselves have been known to get their own ‘dos done here) — it’s time to get to work on her hair and nails.
