'Hunger Games' costumes to hit the auction block
Later this month, net-a-porter.com will launch Capitol Couture, a collection of clothing designed by Catching Fire costume designer Trish Summerville, but if you’re a super-fan, you’ll want to place your bid on actual costumes worn by the actors in the first installment of the Hunger Games movie franchise.
Among the over 200 wardrobe pieces from the first film — designed by Judianna Makovsky — are Katniss Everdeen’s (Jennifer Lawrence) Swarovski crystal embellished Girl on Fire gown (starting bid $10,000), custom-made distressed brown leather jacket (starting bid $5,000), and light blue reaping dress (starting bid $2,000). Other notable items include Effie Trinket’s (Elizabeth Banks) fuchsia reaping suit (starting bid $2,000), Peeta’s (Josh Hutcherson) training uniform ($600), The Tributes’ unisex ensembles (starting bid $200-$1,000), and the black and white uniforms seen on the Peacekeepers (starting bid $600). Costumes worn by Liam Hemsworth (Gale) and Lenny Kravitz (Cinna) will also hit the block.
Hosted by Blacksparrow Auction, the sale will take place on Saturday, November 16th at 11 am/PST in Sun Valley, CA. (Interested parties can also bid by phone or online.) A portion of the profits will benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
