Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 Releases Capitol Couture ‘Living Portraits’


Talk about white hot! Capitol Couture is giving Hunger Games fans a closer look at the style of the Quarter Quell victors Peeta Mellark and Johanna Mason.

The imprisoned pair is presented as living portraits in the movie’s online fashion magazine with the same clean, minimalist aesthetic of President Snow’s sinister public address to Panem. Mason (Jena Malone) showcases her “Statuesque Allure” in a sculpturalAlon Livne gown that “juxtaposes the flowing drapery of classic statuary while the super modern and sculptural iridescent white bodice references the branch motif of the Panem Seal.” 

The striking look was paired with Alexander Wangheels and hand-carved marble bangle by Chen Chen and Kai Williams. Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) channels his Spirit of Strength in an Unconditional matte leather suit with Maison Martin Margiela shirt and shoes. The look is completed with a paper collar piece by David Mason, which takes the similar artistic elements of Mason’s dress.

These living portraits arrive mere days before the debut of the first full trailer from The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part I that will be unveiled on July 25 at Comic Con. The features also serve as a way of dangling the two prisoners as bait to draw the District 13 rebels out of hiding. We wonder how much longer Katniss and her revolutionary crew will wait to rescue the Quarter Quell winners.
