Jena Malone as Johanna Mason in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

We can’t take our eyes off this new eye-catching image of Jena Malone as district 7 tribute Johanna Mason in the upcoming second installment of The Hunger GamesThe images are part of a character feature on the film’s website, CapitolCouture.pn. As HUGE fans of the books and the first film, our editorial team has been anxiously keeping our eye out for up-to-the-moment news on the November release—and this new picture didn’t disappoint. 

This isn’t the first time we’ve gotten to see Jena in character but it is our first closeup look at the makeup and the cork upper portion of her dress. How ‘bout those lower lashes?! Fans of the book will remember Johanna as the tribute who strips down to her birthday suit in front of Katniss and Peeta, so you can probably expect to see a lot more of her this fall!

Are you counting down the days to Catching Fire’s release on November 22nd?

Even if you’re not feeling Johanna’s extreme eyelash look, you can still get The Hunger Games style with Katniss’ dutch braid–find the tutorial here.

We Volunteer! Covergirl Launching a Hunger Games Capitol Collection

image

For those of us not lucky enough to be born into the high status life of Panem’s Capitol, soon we can get the look of The Hunger Games's elite thanks to Covergirl's upcoming Capitol Collection, which is slated to hit stores this fall. But like the games themselves, the details regarding the collection are hush hush. 

If the name and preview images (like the one above) are any indication, we’ll probably see products inspired by the outrageous and high couture looks often worn by the Capitol’s residents. The only question is how extreme they’ll go—bright purple lipstick? Large, delicate false paper lashes? Neon green eyeshadow? 

What products do you hope to see from The Hunger Games universe?

OMG – Watch The New Sneak Peek for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Now!

As you probably know by now, we are huge Hunger Games fans here at Birchbox, and we can’t stop watching the new sneak peek for Catching Fire that debuted last night at the MTV Movie Awards. Katniss! Uprisings! Effie’s makeup! Prim’s dutch braid!

This may just be a teaser for the upcoming full-length trailer, but that hasn’t stopped us from playing it on repeat and making silly predictions for Katniss’s evolving plait, Philip Seymour Hoffman’s creepiness, and the epic competition between Peeta and Gale. 

Unfortunately, Catching Fire doesn’t come out until November 22. But the upside is that you have plenty of time to re-read the book and debate how the movie will portray the—ahem—very special 75th annual Games.

While you eagerly await the premiere, perfect your Katniss style with our Hunger Games-inspired Dutch braid tutorial.
