Today I would like to talk about my favorite fashion from books or their movie adaptations. It’s not a secret that I love fashion, and sometimes books can be fabulous inspiration for outfits. And, as in the case of The Hunger Games, the movies convey the clothing of the book marvelously.
Here are my top 5 favorite looks from books:
5. Scarlett O’Hara in Gone With the Wind
I don’t much remember the clothes being overly described in the book, but I adore poofy dresses and Scarlett’s are absolutely beautiful. And it’s not just her Southern belle dresses that are gorgeous- the below is probably my favorite of her costumes. It comes a bit too low, but I love the color.
4. Daisy Buchanan from The Great Gatsby
I have never seen the movie, but I love the book. The 1920’s is one of my favorite eras for fashion, and the clothes in Gatsby are stunning.
3. Azalea’s ball gown on the cover of Entwined
Yet another poofy dress- and I have been in love with this cover since the first time I saw it. I love the neutral tone of the dress, but at the same time it is a graceful gown that would make Azalea the belle of any ball.
2. Katniss Everdeen in Catching Fire
I want clothes that light on fire. Seriously. And that dress is dramatic on its own, no flames needed. I love Katniss’s entire ensemble: the dress, the hair, the makeup. It’s not only beautiful, it’s dramatic and makes her look just as powerful as she is.
I love all of Katniss’s clothes, whether it’s her Capitol party dress, that fancy wedding dress, or her day-to-day outfits. Cinna was a fabulous stylist *cries*.
- Effie Trinket, The Hunger Games series
Although I’m not fond of her pink ensemble at the first reaping, Effie’s clothes are some of my favorite in this world. I love how they manage to be a little out there but still modest; Effie never shows too much skin. My favorite is the metallic lavender dress in the middle right.
