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 [1] flashed a section of midriff in her black Dior dress, while Elizabeth Banks went for the drama in glittering Jenny Packham 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. Clearly, these red carpet games show no signs of slowing. Hungry for more?
