The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Captiol Couture Profile on District 12 Fashion
The Capitol Couture blog for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire has posted another profile today that centers on a new fashion look in District 12, inspired by Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta Mellark's (Josh Hutcherson) victory at the 74th Annual Hunger Games. Take a look at this District 12 model showing off "the coal-mining look," then read on for the full profile.
"The precious mineral coal translates to stormy eyes.
Our districts make countless contributions to society and we in the Capitol are forever grateful to them. To celebrate the spirit and tireless efforts of our districts, we asked COVERGIRL to translate the various industries into captivating looks. Our first glimpse of the coming collection? An avant-garde take on District 12, which mines the coal that powers the many workings of Panem.
To capture the dark, foreboding work of this district, COVERGIRL Capitol Makeup Artist Dotti created an eye palette of shades reminiscent of the iridescent natural resource. "I was inspired by the interpretation of coal mining, by the colors in coal mining: the dust, the grey, the silvers and the black," she says of the collusion of strong colors that enhance our District 12 model's blue-grey eyes.
Of the bright, bold sweep of canary yellow in the inner corner of the eye, Dotti adds: 'It signifies the power in coal.' The model's monochromatic black attire and long, thick braid is a nod to District 12's very own heroine, Katniss Everdeen."
