The worldwide premiere of Mockingjay: Part I happened in London last night. Jennifer Lawrence wore three white outfits over the past few days. The Dorito dust must have taken a brief hiatus. I apologize for overstuffing this post. We’ve got all of the ladies at the premiere and photocall. Plus a few after party dresses. The poor dudes got relegated into the gallery. Josh Hutcherson looks adorable as always, and Sam Claflin either fell prey to wind or Rave hairspray. I don’t know what’s up with Liam Hemsworth’s grooming habits. (Beard, yes. Hair, no.) Oh, and Jennifer told Us Weekly that Josh and Liam were “my angels, my kittens.” Huh.
JLaw has strep throat but toughed it out to promote like crazy. She looked gorgeous in her white Dior premiere dress with a light blue undertone. What do you think of this Dior? It’s better than most of their designs for her. I’m conflicted. The cut of the dress is beautiful. Even the mullety effect can’t take away from the elegant silhouette and slight bustle (see gallery) in the back. The quilted fabric is another story and cheapens the overall vibe of the dress. Jennifer’s makeup game continues improving though. Thank goodness.
Jennifer changed into this Mugler dress for the after party. BAM. Slinky and sexy.
Elizabeth Banks wore a dress that Effie Trinket would adore. This Elie Saab couture gown is humongous. There’s just so much fabric, but the gown is so over the top that it works. I love how the floral print of the top melts into the watery colors of the skirt. The cape effect in the back is magnificent. All those embellishments? Delicious.
Elizabeth changed into a crinkly pink frock for the afterparty. Another win.
Natalie Dormer tried valiantly to own this Nicholas Oakwell gown. The dress was a little too busy, but it was fun. If the skirt was solid black instead of revealing a blue underlay, maybe it would have looked better. Nat’s edgy hairstyle (from the side) scores a few points, as does her best accessory: the smirk.
Jena Malone wore a springlike Emilia Wickstead two-piecer with a white bodysuit and a canary yellow wraparound skirt. The runway version reveals the illusion of underwear peeking through the skirt. Jenna’s droopy neckline is by her own design. Not my fave look.
Julianne Moore wore little black Balenciaga dress with all sorts of sheer paneling and latticework. This isn’t a terribly exciting look, but it’s much better than most of Julianne’s red carpet ensembles.
Here are the ladies at the London photocall on Sunday.
