At the L.A. premiere of the much anticipated The Hunger Games, Jennifer Lawrence hit the black carpet and brought out the big guns in a Prabal Gurung Fall 2012 gown. The stunning gold lamé cut out gown showcased a sexy open back and a thigh-high leg slit. The actress, who portrays Katniss Everdeen, provided proof that just because you have a dramatic leg slit, it’s not necessary to pose baring your entire leg (ahem, Angelina).
The dress also featured a shoulder high black sheer insert visible from the back and a nude one at her waist (which is actually difficult to spot). Never having been into the sheer trend, I thought the dress could do without it. Jennifer accessorized with black strappy Jimmy Choo “Bunting” sandals that could be spotted peeking through the leg slit.
The 21-year-old actress kicked the sultriness up a couple notches with black smokey kohl rimmed eyes, shimmery chocolate eye shadow and pale pink lips.
To complete her look, she wore her hair in a loose braided updo with tendrils (I don’t know why, but “tendrils” always sounds wrong) hanging loosely around her face and a jeweled headpiece. Well done, Jennifer Lawrence!
The Hunger Games is based on a young adult novel by Suzanne Collins. According to IMDB the movie is “set in a future where the Capitol selects a boy and girl from the twelve districts to fight to the death on live television, Katniss Everdeen volunteers to take her younger sister’s place for the latest match.” Her co-stars include Josh Hutcherson as Peeta, a fellow competitor, and Liam Hemsworth as Gale Hawthorne, Katniss’ best friend and hunting partner. When I first heard about the plot, it reminded me of the Japanese film Battle Royale, but I haven’t read either novels that both movies are based on, so I can’t compare.
