Jennifer Lawrence Proves the Power of the Little Black Dress

Nov 20 2013 - 6:17pm

After touring in Europe, the cast of Catching Fire is back in North America! And — if we do say so — it seems like the style stars were waiting to break out their most showstopping looks for the movie's NYC, Toronto, and Los Angeles premieres. Jennifer Lawrence flashed a section of midriff in her black Dior dress, while Elizabeth Banks went for the drama in glittering Jenny Packham [1] harem pants. Jena Malone brought the action up north on Tuesday in a stunning black and gold dress. But at Monday's LA premiere, sheer was the name of the game: Lawrence stunned in a transparent belted dress that was almost overshadowed by an equally sheer number on Jena Malone. Meanwhile, Banks showed she wasn't afraid of bold color in a bright, curve-hugging gown by Versace [2]. Clearly, these red carpet games show no signs of slowing. Hungry for more?
