Hunger Games Movie Pictures
Murray Close

Watch that lighter, Cinna! Entertainment Weekly has an exclusive first look at Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta Mellark’s (Josh Hutcherson) flammable black Hunger Games unitards — and though unlit, they’re pretty cool. The costumes, designed in party by Everdeen’s stylist Cinna (Lenny Kravitz), are eventually set aflame, and the two young stars dazzle the people of Panem as they ride through town the night before the games begin.

Last month, InStyle asked several designers to imagine the fiery costumes, with Christian Siriano, Charlotte Ronson and Nicole Miller creating super-cool yellow, orange and red interpretations of the look. Though we’ll have to wait until the film’s release on March 23rd to see the costumes aglow, this first look is definitely getting us excited. Tell us: How did you envision the flammable costumes?

Emmy on

Ahem. If you read the book, it said that she wore a black suit with a cape that shimmered with fire :)

Deets on

I second Emmy. The fire costume was black in the book.

I imagined it black so I had to check it out. I skimmed through the first book to find it but it definitely says black.. It describes a simple black leotard with shiny leather boots and a cape made of streams of orange, yellow and red.

Rave on

You gotta trust Suzanne Collins that she picked the right people. But, Anna, they were black in the book. I didn’t picture these with sleeves, they’re still badass.

You have to remember that they come from the District that mines COAL!!!! The outfits are not supposed to be “stunning” at first glance. They are described in the book to look like glinting coal in the sun. Which THEY DO!! The dramatics come later…you seriously think they’re going to show you the “special effect” in a snap shot…NO!!! They’ll save that for the movie…stop criticizing before you see it!! From what I’ve seen so far, the casting & look seem spot on!!!!

Suua P. on

Jenn and Josh make such a cute couple!
