Living In Literature Special Edition: The Hunger Games

It’s finally here… Mockingjay, the final title in the Hunger Games series phenomenon, is in stores this week!  Despite running to the nearest release party at Word bookstore on Monday night to get my hands on a copy (check out a pretty epic Twitter account of the night here and photos from NY Mag), I’m actually savoring the book, leaving the last few pages for lunch today.

With the final battle for Panem on everyone’s minds (and all of the fab costumes I saw at the release party), I absolutely had do a post on the series. And for a story that is so heavy on violence, war and adventure, I was surprised how many details Suzanne Collins writes about fashion – it becomes a major plot point in the series.  I’m particularly intrigued by the myriad outfits that Cinna created to blow the Capital population away.  So the fashion below, while not an exact match to the book (if you ever see a fiery jeweled gown, please pass along!), is inspired by Cinna’s take of the “girl on fire”.

Fire top – $120, Missoni flame headband – $90, tights – $10, Scala jeweled dress – $238, Felder + Felder flame dress, Yves Saint-Laurent flame dress

jumpsuit with zip – $295, gold party dress – $280, Jane Yeh feathered wedding gown, feathered cocktail dress – $186, military jacket – $40, 7 For All Mankind skinny cargo jean – $173, Down With The Capitol tee – $24
