Hunger Games Movie Pictures
Murray Close

Watch that lighter, Cinna! Entertainment Weekly has an exclusive first look at Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta Mellark’s (Josh Hutcherson) flammable black Hunger Games unitards — and though unlit, they’re pretty cool. The costumes, designed in party by Everdeen’s stylist Cinna (Lenny Kravitz), are eventually set aflame, and the two young stars dazzle the people of Panem as they ride through town the night before the games begin.

Last month, InStyle asked several designers to imagine the fiery costumes, with Christian Siriano, Charlotte Ronson and Nicole Miller creating super-cool yellow, orange and red interpretations of the look. Though we’ll have to wait until the film’s release on March 23rd to see the costumes aglow, this first look is definitely getting us excited. Tell us: How did you envision the flammable costumes?

This isn’t how I pictured these costumes looking; I pictured them being white before the flames. But I’m excited to see what they can do with it.

I like the outfits, they look contoured and sexy. What did people have in mind? These look great, and with a little Photoshop, they’ll look even better. I mean, with the flames and all. Peeta looks nothing like i thought he would, tho. Katniss is exactly as I imagined her. I still can’t wait for the movie!

Unitard…that is not a unitard. It isn’t what I thought at all. I pictured a skin tight, matt black outfit with long sleeves and long pants. I imagined the unitard being nothing special at all…until it was lit:)

I thought she was supposed to look like she’s on fire?!

This was exactly how I imagined the bodysuits would look – I can’t wait to see them “on fire”. YAY!

I’m stunned. This is pretty close to how I pictured them, with the shoulders big like that. I didn’t picture the texture though. So far I am so happy with this. OMG. So happy.

Must read book for 2012, Along the Naktong by Joshua Lorenzo Newett. It is the best book I’ve read in a long time and has inspired me to change my life and take the trip I’ve been dreaming about since I was 20. A trip on the Trains Siberian RR .
