In a new promo pic for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, which hits theaters on November 22, Katniss is wearing a gorgeous wedding gown:
In the book, President Snow orders Katniss to wear Cinna's winning wedding gown design for her televised interview to kick off the Quarter Quell. Katniss describes her gown as "heavy white silk with a low neckline and tight waist and sleeves that fall from my wrists to the floor. And pearls. Pearls everywhere. Stitched into the dress and in ropes at my throat and forming the crown for the veil."
And when she twirls... well, fans know what happens there!
Obviously, the costume designers took some liberties with the design, but we can certainly imagine how this dress will transform when she twirls. What do you think?
Updated: The designer has been revealed! Though previously speculated to be Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen, Catching Fire costume designer Trish Summerville reveals that this frothy confection was the brainchild of Tex Saverio in Jakarta. "He is amazing! I found his designs quite some time ago and saved his information for a fitting project, then came Catching Fire —perfect!" she told The Hollywood Reporter. After several Skype calls and countless sketches, they nailed the final design: a Swarovski-crystal-covered "organza corset under a metal cage." The metal pieces on top represent fire and flames, while the laser-cut feathers at the waist and shoulder are a nod to her transition into a Mockingjay.
