The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – TV Spots and the LA Premiere

The Mockingjay Press Tour: now featuring indisputable proof that Jennifer Lawrence is a huge Democracy Diva fan.

Bow down, bitches: J.Law wore my red carpet prediction for her! She shortened the hem of the stunning Dior couture gown I knew she’d wear, and made it premiere-appropriate rather than Oscars-ready. So let’s call this a victory for both Jennifer Lawrence and the Democracy Diva. J.LAW READS MY BLOG, YOU GUYS. THAT IS OBVIOUSLY WHAT THIS OUTFIT MEANS.

Sexy and hip; fun and cool. Overall, perfect for an after-party. I think the combo of the cut-out maxidress and that sharp blazer is absolutely fantastic. 10/10 would wear.

That giggle. That jacket. WHY IS SHE SO PERFECT, YOU GUYS.

I hereby request that every starlet follow in J.Law’s footprints and turn her multiple TV appearances for a big movie into a Blazer Tour of America.

This dress is a little low-key – it looks fantastic for street style, but I’m not sure how well it would read on television. However, her coat game continues to be unstoppable, and her sunglasses are the shit, so I’m still on board.

This dress is a work of art, and only made more amazing by the fact that Elizabeth Banks is the one inside it. I’m still uncertain about the hair – I can’t decide if it makes her look like a windswept little boy or not – but those mega-dramatic statement shoes were a risk worth taking. Three movies in, and Ms. Banks is still using enough print, color, and generally unstoppable-fierceness to make Effie Trinket proud.

Still gorgeous as can be, though a little more traditional than her usual fashion-forward ensembles. But I’m glad she saved the real drama for the LA premiere, and played it a little bit safer at the Berlin press call.

Yes. Love. Best. Want. Other words of support and encouragement so that Julianne Moore will dress like Velma Kelly from Chicago ALL THE TIME, PLEASE.

Again, it’s a bit more conventional than what she usually wears, but I can’t pretend I don’t love this fire-engine red on her. Particularly with the not-quite-matching red lips and red hair. It’s so much clashing that it makes the turn back around to fabulous.

A surprising choice of dress, though not a bad one. I just didn’t expect to see Natalie in something so Elle Fanning-esque. It’s a shame she’s still making that “eating a lemon out of the side of my mouth” face, which ensures I will never be able to take her even remotely seriously.

Little Prim really turned it up at this premiere – she’s 14, which is practically middle-aged in Hollywood, so she’s finally dressing like the star she’s going to be. She also happens to have chosen the gown I predicted Christina Hendricks would wear; somehow, I love it as much on Willow in real life as I did on Christina in my imagination. It’s not every gown that works as well for a voluptuous almost-40-year-old as it does for a tween, so three cheers for Christian Siriano, who really does design for all kinds of women.

I didn’t even know Jessica Simpson was still doing things. But based on her outfit, I can only assume it will always be 2003 to dear Jessica. Honestly, this is pretty good compared to most of her red carpet looks, but that’s an astonishingly low bar to pass.

Would have scored much higher if it weren’t for the matching bridesmaid shoes. Those are just atrocious.

Don’t ask me what the hell Ashlee Simpson was doing at the Mockingjay premiere. I’m much more concerned with why her dress appears to be making a run for it. Is that fabric scrambling to get away from her, or is that just me?
