Effie Trinket (Elizabeth Banks, left) acts as an official envoy for the tributes from District 12, including Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence), who will be brought to the Capitol to compete in the games. Her fashions are a window for the two into the opulent, and flamboyant styles of the wealthy, appearance-obsessed Capitol citizens. Effie is depicted in the novels with large, brightly colored pink and green wigs, pale makeup that covers her face and striking eye and lip colors that mimic her outfits. In contrast, Katniss attends the reaping ceremony, where she volunteers for the games, in a pale blue, worn dress of her mother’s.
