The Capitol's Fashion Week may be a distant memory but for the sartorially minded, Panem is the repressive nation state that keeps on giving. Capitol Couture, Lionsgate's inspired tie-in site for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, has a first-look at Hunger Games newbie Johanna Mason (Jena Malone) giving it the full La Tigra.
Here's how Capitol Couture pitches the newest of Panem's tribunes: "Johanna Mason may hail from the lumber district, but this slip of a victor is anything but green. Don’t be swayed by her cinnamon sprinkle of freckles and delicate, doll-like features. She was one of the youngest tributes ever reaped in Hunger Games history and her agility with an axe resonates throughout Panem. Sly. Savage. Sangfroid. These are just a few of the adjectives tossed around to describe Mason, who’s known for disarming her victims by feigning weakness.”
That will only work if her victims haven't seen any of her other films. Malone was one of Sucker Punch's dancing dervishes and should be a tough adversary for our heroes Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) in the Arena.
Catching Fire, of course, sees Katniss and Peeta, fresh from their unexpected joint success in the 74th Hunger Games, marched off around the districts on a Victory Tour. As revolution against President Snow and his decadent Capitol minions brews, Snow has plans for our heroes: putting them back in the Arena for a 75th games featuring past winners such as Finnick Odair (Sam Claflin) and Mason.
With Francis Lawrence calling the shots, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire will be out on November 22.
