Step Aside, Katniss — Elizabeth Banks Is the Girl on Fire Now
Let's get one thing straight — in the Hunger Games films, Elizabeth Banks plays Effie Trinket, the always-quirky, ever-stylish escort of the District 12 tributes. But on the red carpet at the world premiere of Mockingjay — Part 1, Elizabeth Banks stole the whole show. We'd venture to say her Elie Saab Fall '14 Paris Haute Couture gown is something Katniss's stylist, Cinna, would design. In fact, when Banks twirled around, she gave off the illusion of a dress on fire.
Yes, this gorgeous creation is fitting with the mystical theme attributed to The Hunger Games — and we don't even mind that Jennifer Lawrence wasn't the one to wear it. Truth be told, Elizabeth Banks carries this whimsical design — cape and all — like a true goddess. If you don't agree now, you will as soon as you take in this look from every possible angle.
