Red Carpet Games: Our Favorite Looks from the Mockingjay Premieres

Tomorrow’s the day we’ve all been waiting for, Janes. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1 is finally back for another installment, and to say that we’ve all been waiting patiently would be, well, a lie (#sorrynotsorry). Yup, that’s right, we finally get to find out what Katniss, Peeta, Gale, and the rest of gang in Panem have been up to. So, in the spirit of competition (and, of course, to celebrate the release of the second to last film)…

We’ve ranked the Mockingjay leading ladies based on their recent red carpet premiere looks:

1st Place: Jena Malone (Johanna)

Hands down, Jena Malone’s red carpet looks blew the rest of the cast out of the water. In London, she donned a two-tone, modern, origami inspired number that was as beautiful as it was unique. In LA, she channeled her inner old-Hollywood starlet and showed us how to properly do monochromatic with both a red lip and a red dress. Breathtaking is an understatement for both occasions.

2nd Place: Jennifer Lawrence (Katniss)

No white after Labor Day? Sorry, but that rule doesn’t apply to our BFF, Jennifer Lawrence. It’s no surprise that the down-to-earth leading lady preferred to keep things clean, simple, and au naturel at both premieres, and we couldn’t have asked for anything more. Both silhouettes are extremely flattering on the actress’ athletic build, and we love the life that Lawrence brings to each look.

3rd Place: Elizabeth Banks (Effie)

We gotta give props to Elizabeth Banks for taking on prints not once, but two times, on the Mockingjay red carpets. The London look screams elegant and ethereal, and while the LA look is borderline tapestry (AKA your grandma’s weird couch), it is the asymmetrical design that saves the day.

4th Place: Julianne Moore (President Coin)

While black is always a good idea, we wish that red carpet vet, Julianne Moore, would have taken more of a risk fashion-wise. It’s no doubt, however, that the numbers she wore were both elegant and red carpet appropriate, so we definitely give her points for keeping it classic and timeless. Buuuut they were just a little too safe for us in this case.

5th Place: Natalie Dormer (Cressida)

We really want to love both of Natalie Dormer’s Mockingjay red carpet looks, but they were just a little too, er, lukewarm for us. We definitely understand the vision of the mesh-meets-origami number on the London look, but the silhouette on the young starlet was just all wrong. As for the textured cut-out number in LA… We think the look would have been better at a midi length.

2013 SAG Awards: Red Carpet Fashion and Memorable Moments

Sunday night’s Screen Actors Guild Awards was full of fun, fashion, and heartfelt speeches from award-winning actors. Jennifer Lawrence’s wardrobe malfunction aside, everyone pretty much looked amazing. In case you missed the show, here are a few of our favorite looks and hilarious moments!

The Emmy Awards: Looks that got us talking

We were all excited on Sunday night to tune into TV’s biggest award show of the year, The Emmys. From Tracy Morgan’s pass-out stint on the floor to Amy Poehler’s speech swap with Julia Louis-Dreyfus, it was definitely an entertaining evening. But we were especially ‘wowed’ by the fashion at this year’s awards. There weren’t any appalling outfits, and most of the male and female nominees looked stunning. We give the night an overall thumbs up! Just in case you missed any of the glorious gowns, we’ve compiled a few of our favorites, as well as a few we wish had been a little better.

Luxe for Less: Carly Rae Jepsen

You may not immediately recognize the name Carly Rae Jepsen, but we’re pretty sure you’d recognize her hit song Call Me Maybe immediately. The 26-year-old won third place on the fifth season of Canadian Idol in 2007, but has just recently risen to stardom in the U.S. thanks to Interscope Records and her new buddy, Justin Bieber. While we, of course, love Jepsen’s amazing voice, we are also loving her style. She always manages to look classy and elegant while also maintaining her youthful and innocent look. She recently rocked a stunning blue dress with yellow heels at the premiere for Katy Perry: Part of Me, and we loved it so much, we just had to recreate the look. While Jepsen’s gorgeous dress, created by the Turkish designer Cengiz Abazoglu, will burn a pretty large whole in your pocket, our version of her outfit will only set you back  about $120. While we love Jepsen’s floral printed clutch, we switched it out for a slightly dressier metallic and lace version.
