The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Character Posters




Lionsgate has finally released the complete character posters of the highly anticipated sequel from last year’s The Hunger Games. Academy Award-winner Jennifer Lawrence is still accompanied by Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Stanley Tucci and Elizabeth Banks who are repeating their previous roles as Katniss Everdeen, Peeta Mellark, Gale Hawthorne, Caesar Flickerman and Effie Trinket respectively (she’s wearing a huge red ruffled dress from Alexander McQueen Fall Winter 2012 on the poster!).

We are so thrilled that Jennifer Lawrence is wearing a custom-made white ruffled dress with metal bodice specially made by the talented Indonesian designer, Tex Saverio who has dressed the likes of Lady Gaga and Kim Kardashian!! The movie’s costume designer Trish Summerville explained in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter about the crystallized organza dress with abstract metal flames: “Katniss’ white gown is by a designer named Tex Saverio in Jakarta. He is amazing! I found his designs quite some time ago and saved his information for a perfectly fitting project, then came Catching Fire – perfect!” she said.

“We did several Skype calls with sketches to work together in designing the wedding dress. I had seen a dress he designed with a similar metal bodice, and I wanted to incorporate it into our wedding-dress design,” Summerville adds.
She also pointed out the bodice, a Swarovski-crystal-clad “organza corset under a metal cage.” The metal pieces rising up are meant to signify fire and flames, while layers of laser-cut feathers at the waist and shoulder tie in the film’s “Mockingjay” concept.

The skirt also has numerous layers of organza and chiffon ruffles giving it grandness but still making it seem airy and fluid for movement. As Summerville explains, “This is very important for the twirling/spinning Katniss does onstage, per Caesar Flickerman‘s request.”

The new additional characters including Plutarch Heavensbee (played by fellow Academy Award-winner Philip Seymour Hoffman), Finnick Odair (Sam Claflin), Johanna Mason (Jena Malone) and Beetee (Jeffrey Wright).

The Francis Lawrence directed movie will hit the theatres later this November.

Featured Article: Backstage Images of Jakarta Fashion Week 2012, Final Day


Simona and Kelly Tandiono have a chat during the rehearsal for the last day of Jakarta Fashion Week 2012


Merry during rehearsal on the last day of Jakarta Fashion Week 2012

Please enjoy the images taken by art and amby from the backstage, rehearsal, run through and after shows of the final day of Jakarta Fashion Week 2012, Friday, November 18th 2011 at Pacific Place.

That night, five of Indonesia‘s talented fashion designers, Auguste Soesastro, Sally Koeswanto, Sebastian Gunawan, Sapto Djojokartiko, and Tex Saverio, are presenting their interpretation on “Celebrating Women”, the theme for Dewi Fashion Knights, the final show on the highly anticipated annual event, Jakarta Fashion Week.

Auguste Soesastro, who once worked for Ralph Rucci, dons minimalist collection with great tailoring in cream, ivory, white and a hint of black and orange. Sally Koeswanto, who graduated from Whitehouse School of Design, Sydney in 1994, presented sexy and body hugging Chinese inspired dresses titled “Love, Passion, and Lust“. Sebastian Gunawan in his second participation for Dewi Fashion Knights gave something different from his usual elegant collection with tribal printed flowing dresses and edgy headpieces.

Sapto Djojokartiko made people gasp with towering high laser cut steel heeled shoes where the model could barely walk. His Calon Arang inspired designs were mysteriously breathtaking and very editorial ready! Last but not least, Tex Saverio, whose his gown was featured in a spread of Harper Bazaar US worn by Lady Gaga, presented gold themed collection with magnificent detailing. Lady Gaga should worn Tex‘s and Sapto‘s dresses for her next performances in our opinion.
