Elizabeth Banks In Jenny Packham - 'The Hunger Games Catching Fire' New York Premiere

Elizabeth Banks has really done nothing but pushed the fashion envelope—in the most stunning way possible—during ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ promo tour, including the most recent New York City premiere at AMC Lincoln Square Theatre on Wednesday night.

The actress again delivered a dynamic red-carpet entrance, even it was left field of her previous looks. She kept the glam, but exchanged the gown for a black two-piece outfit, sprinkled with a hefty dose of dazzle, from Jenny Packham’s Fall 2013 collection.

Indeed, the most alluring facet of the strapless, bustier top and matching pants was the flurry of glittery embellishment that shined across the bodice and shot down the sides of each leg like the most ravishing racing stripes ever.

What’s more, she didn’t clutter the eye-catching ensemble with a host of unnecessary accessories, opting only for a small black Edie Parker clutch and a minimal, but effective smattering of Lorraine Schwartz jewels. Even the black Christian Louboutin pumps didn’t leave me wishing for another, more exciting pair.

A teased, bouffant-style ‘do, along with that completely captivating pop of a coral lip, added another layer of drama to the sparkling look.

She stepped away from her run of sweeping, seductive and sublime dresses. Pants perfection?
