Elizabeth Banks In Elie Saab Couture & Jena Malone In Reem Acra – ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ Oslo Premiere

Premiere The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

After two days and several phone calls to Norway and Sweden I finally have the golden picture from the Oslo premiere of ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’, as I was not prepared to allow these two stunning gowns to go to waste or settle for grainy Instagram pictures or stolen pictures, as some other websites settled for.

Elizabeth Banks: The actress donned her second Elie Saab Fall 2013 Couture dress in a row, wearing a striking emerald-green sleeveless embroidered fit-and-flare dress with a plunging neckline, which was styled with matching Jimmy Choo ‘Freya’ sandals, Irene Neuwirth emerald earrings, emerald rings from Marina B and Jacob & Co., plus she arrived at the event carrying a Charlotte Olympia Perspex clutch with a custom green pouch. It was another fairytale, heart-palpitating look; she can do no wrong in my eyes. Some may comment on the matchy-matchyness of the look, but I wouldn’t change a single thing.

Sam Claflin: Wedged between two beauties, the handsome actor is still going tieless, opting for a dark double-breasted jacket and navy trousers against his stark white shirt. A red pocket square and brow monk-strap shoes rounded out his less formal, yet still smart, approach to red-carpet dressing.

Jena Malone: After blowing me away at the London premiere, she wows once again wearing a Reem Acra Fall 2013 bugle-beaded long-sleeved gown, which she styled with black nail polish and smoky eyes, with no visible jewels to speak of. Wavy tresses and a glossy lip perfect her sexy, sleek look.

Hopefully both ladies will grace the red carpet alongside Jennifer Lawrence tonight at the Paris premiere before they all head back to California for the LA premiere on Monday.

I will be sad when it comes to an end.

Elizabeth Banks In Elie Saab Couture – ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ Berlin Premiere

Elizabeth Banks In Elie Saab Couture - 'The Hunger Games Catching Fire' Berlin Premiere

Elizabeth Banks sent a shiver down my spine while taking to the red carpet this evening for ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ Berlin premiere in Germany – this is why I love her.

Yes, it’s Elie Saab.

I only had two wishes for Elizabeth during this promo tour: some McQueen and some sparkle which we saw plenty of from the first promo tour, and you don’t get more bedazzlement than from the Bling King.

The Fall 2013 Couture gown was presented as a bridesmaid’s gown, but she was definitely not playing second fiddle to her co-star Jennifer Lawrence.

Her silver metallic fully embellished sweetheart strapless gown with silver ridged belt was styled with metallic Brian Atwood ‘Karin’ open-toe platform sandals, Demarco drop earrings, a Carla Amorim ring and a silver Kara Ross envelope clutch.

Wavy tresses completed her BDOTW-worthy look.

Which of Elizabeth’s looks do you prefer so far? The Jason Wu or this Saab stunner?

I will have to flip a coin at this point. I love that she doesn’t make these decisions easy for us.

Elizabeth Banks In Jason Wu – ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ After-Party

Elizabeth Banks In Jason Wu - ‘The Hunger Games Catching Fire’ After-Party

Elizabeth Banks joined Jennifer Lawrence at the Royal Courts of Justice in London for ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ after-party following the photocall and world premiere earlier in the day.

The actress, who you deemed best dressed at the premiere by an overwhelming majority, opted for Jason Wu again, swapping her ballgown for this party-perfect pale-sage metallic organza bias-draped layered frock from the Spring 2014 collection.

Opting to keep the same hairstyle, she decided upon a lighter lip colour on this occasion, selecting a shimmering nude hue which matched her Christian Louboutin ‘So Kate’ pumps.

I already can’t wait to see what she wears to the Berlin premiere this evening.

Prior to ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ world premiere, Elizabeth Banks attended the photocall in London.

She wore an Alexander McQueen Resort 2014 floral-print mini dress with exaggerated patch pockets and a tonal belt which cinched in her waist.

Her legs seem to go on for days in this festive number.

Keeping her hair and makeup simple, she upped the ante a notch with her ponyskin Christian Louboutin ‘Malabar’ studded pumps.

Hopefully this won’t be the last time we seen her in McQueen during this promo tour.

You can buy Elizabeth’s Alexander McQueen Floral Dress from Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus.

Elizabeth Banks In Jason Wu - 2013 London Hunger Games Premiere

Elizabeth Banks brought a veritable ray of sunshine to the UK premiere of ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,’ hosted this evening at Odeon Leicester Square in London.

The actress completely commanded the red carpet in her bold and beautiful, custom-made Jason Wu strapless confection, a yellow extravaganza of a glam ball gown that still served up sexy appeal with its peekaboo side cutouts.

But it was really the dress’s bright, zesty citron shade—a delicious lemon curd of a hue—that stole the show, so much so that too much added sparkle would have been an unnecessary distraction.

So, Elizabeth maintained a more minimal jewelry approach, wearing just an on-trend Gaydamak hand cuff and a Jacob & Co. ring, also accessorizing with a Nancy Gonzalez clutch and Brian Atwood heels. She polished off the look with a sleek, side-parted updo and a coral-red lip.

Elizabeth Banks In Dolce & Gabbana – Variety’s 5th Annual Power of Women Event

Elizabeth Banks In Dolce & Gabbana - Variety's 5th Annual Power of Women Event

Elizabeth Banks made a welcome return to the red carpet for Variety’s 5th Annual Power of Women event held at the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills, California on Friday afternoon where she was honoured for her work on behalf of the American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women movement.

We haven’t seen much of the actress on the red carpet this summer, so we can forgive her for jumping on the crop trend a little late.

She looked divine wearing a Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2013 red-hot two-piece which both featured lace embroideries.

Nude Christian Louboutin ‘So Kate’ pumps, a ring and bracelet from Jennifer Meyer and gold Irene Neuwirth earrings accessorized her look.

Her blonde tresses were teased into a bouffant updo with a complementary red lip colour to match her ensemble provided the finishing touches.
