Does art really imitate life? In Jennifer Lawrence‘s case, yes! Pre-pixie cut, the star famously wore intricate braided hairstyles that mirrored her on-screen plait in her role as Katniss Everdeen, and we were left wanting to recreate each of the delicate looks on our own. The Katniss effect also caught on in Hollywood, with one A-lister after the next hitting the red carpet in a pretty twist that would look right at home among Panem’s avant-garde style choices. To celebrate the release of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, we rounded up our favorite celebrity braids, all of which would do District 12’s boldest resident proud. See each style in our gallery now!
