“Eyes bright, chins up, smiles on.”
In a palette of greys, crimson reds, camouflage and black, Effie Trinket manages to find the silver, orange and even a little fur.
Everyone’s favourite district escort found her colours and over-the-top face paint again in the latest TV spot for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2.
It comes as a huge relief to fans of the quirky character after she hit an emotional and fashion block in Mockingjay Part 1.
She makes two appearances in the latest clip.
In the first (0.48) her look is a merge of 1500s English royalty and futurist space girl with her platinum gold hair puffed up over her head, a high silver collar and white fur running down her shoulders.
In the second shot (0.51) she isn’t facing the camera, however, the outfit and the way she adjusts Gale’s shirt screams Effie. In it she’s sporting a massive orange, brown and off-white hair piece and an off-the shoulder, sleeveless, poncho-type top with tassels.
Her warfare outfits are still missing the hot pinks, purples and other artificial tones from the first couple of movies – we think the shift to earthy tones in the second outfit and reduced makeup in the first is an indication of the emotional toll (and growing sympathy for the districts) the fight against the Capitol has had on the character.
Check out the clip to see the return of classic, glamorous Effie.
The final Hunger Games movie is out 20 November.
Are you as excited as we are to see Effie’s outfits in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2?
