Channel Your Inner Katniss Everdeen with Catching Fire Costume Designer Trish Summerville’s Net-a-Porter CollectionNov 26, 2013 @ 4:24 am
While the special effects in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire are truly something to behold, that’s certainly not the only visual feast that has captured our attention lately. Hot on our radar at the moment are the carefully constructed outfits created and styled by the film’s renowned costume designer, Trish Summerville. Known for bringing to Lisbeth Salander to life in Girl with a Dragoon Tattoo, and most recently the outrageous Effie Trinket, she’s now turning her attention to you—Summerville has created a 24-piece collection inspired by her work in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire for online retailer Net-a-Porter.
“I think that what’s great for costume designers is choosing different types of projects,” Summerville said of working on Catching Fire and ultimately the collection for Net-a-Porter. “We get challenged on creating this world and giving the characters clues so that they can develop these characters, so I like doing both. I like doing everything and constantly changing everything up because it challenges me.” So if you’ve ever wanted to channel your inner Katniss Everdeen, now you can! Ranging in price from $75 to $995, the collection is filled with luxe leather items, kitshy t-shirts, and Mockingjay-inspired jewelry that will transport you to Panem. Shop the collection now at net-a-porter.com.
What were your favorite celebrities up to this weekend? Many were at the 2013 American Music Awards where artists like Justin Timberlake and Miley Cyrus performed, and Instagram was abuzz with stars like Nicole Richie, Heidi Klum and Emma Roberts snapping and sharing photos from both the red carpet and backstage. But these weren’t the only double-tap worthy grams of the weekend — many more stars shared their weekend adventure. We rounded up 8 more of the best shots from the social media app.
Happy Hunger Games! For Panem’s resident style-setter Effie Trinket (Elizabeth Banks), more is always more. Costume designer Trish Summerville continues to push the boundaries, costuming Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta Mellark’s Capitol caretaker in over-the-top, off-the-runway looks. But it’s not all about the outfits — her matching hair and makeup are equally important in achieving her vibrant looks. After all, her defining style characteristic is the ever-changing color of her hair. And while all of her looks can be defined as “outrageous,” we’ve picked our five favorites to celebrate the release of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.
Week three of The Voice ended on a high note for Christina Aguilera and her team of two, and the superstar’s looks reflected the quality of their diverse performances. On Monday night, Aguilera went for a schoolgirl look, complete with a fun custom-made braided hairpiece courtesy of her hairstylist, David Babaii. “Christina has been wanting to do a braid for awhile,” he told InStyle.com exclusively, and Babaii thought this look was the perfect complement. To achieve the style, he parted her hair down the middle and blew out her strands so they were straight and sleek. He then secured the braid and fastened the rest of her hair into a chic low bun. “I didn’t want to do an elaborate bun,” he explained. “I wanted it to be simple and classic, almost like a fanned bun.”
The next night, Christina took the stage to perform, so her team decided to go for full-out glamour. “Anytime there’s a performance, I can go nuts and do whatever I want,” Babaii told InStyle.com. And he certainly went all out. For the results show, he curled her hair into tight ringlets for a full-looking ‘do, which complemented her glam outfit and intense smoky eye. For more details on why he and Aguilera decided on this week’s styles, as well as the information on her outfits and makeup, check out the gallery! And be sure to catch Christina Aguilera and her contestants battling it out against Team Blake, Adam, and Cee Lo Monday on The Voice at 8/7c on NBC.
