Ever since the new Hunger Games: Catching Fire character posters debuted, you can't deny one thing: Jennifer Lawrence, aka Katniss Everdeen, looks hot. Even though fans are split as to whether or not they like the actual design of the wedding dress, Jennifer can still pull it off and be smokin'.
Love it or hate it, new details have come out about the dress, and I'm sure you've all been waiting impatiently, glued to the monstrosity of a time-suck that is the Internet, to know more. You know that one of your favorite things to do is pick apart wedding dresses from a fantasy series detail by detail!
The first thing everyone, and I mean everyone, wanted to know was: Was this dress designed by Alexander McQueen creative director Sarah Burton?
The answer: Nope!
Katniss's wedding gown is by a designer named Tex Saverio in Jakarta, the capital and largest city of Indonesia. Not sure if you've heard of him, but he's designed gowns for celebs such as Lady Gaga and Kim Kardashian as well. Good for you, Mr. Saverio!
Catching Fire costume designer Trish Summerville dished: “We did several Skype calls with sketches to work together in designing the wedding dress. I had seen a dress he designed with a similar metal bodice, and I wanted to incorporate it into our wedding-dress design.”
She also went on to describe the dress in far more detail. The corset is covered in Swarovski crystals and made of organza. The intricate "flame" structure is, like she mentioned before, made out of metal -- wonder how heavy it is? And the skirt was created out of layers upon layers of organza and chiffon. There are also laser-cut feathers at the waist and shoulder, in honor of Katniss being called the "Mockingjay."
A couple of mild spoilers ahead ... if you don't want to know what happens to this dress, stop reading now!!
You've been warned!
Cinna, Katniss's friend and favorite designer, creates different wedding dresses for the people of Panem to gawk over and choose from when Katniss announces her engagement to Peeta. It's hard to say if this is the dress that ends up winning -- but during an interview, Cinna has a trick up his sleeve so that the dress lights on fire and burns away while Katniss is wearing it. She's left in a black outfit with white "wings," and he essentially turns her into a Mockingjay as an act of defiance.
Can't wait to see that on the big screen! Though couture-purists would probably have heart palpitations if they go ahead and destroy the dress for real (yeah right, but wouldn't that be something?).
What do you think of Katniss's Catching Fire dress that will literally catch fire?
