Charlotte’s Sketches: The Hunger Games Fire Dress

In anticipation of the upcoming release of  The Hunger Games this March InStyle asked Charlotte to imagine what the iconic “fire dress” the main character, Katniss Everdeen (played by Jennifer Lawrence) would look like onscreen. This dress serves as one of the most important props in the book series’ pivotal scenes. Charlotte sketched this bold look, which included a spot for Everdeen‘s treasured bow and arrows, and wanted the cape to “appear like a fire running through the forest.” Check out to see more “Fire Dress” interpretations.

“I am dressed in what will either be the most sensational or the deadliest costume in the opening ceremonies. I’m in a simple black unitard that covers me from ankle to neck. Shiny leather boots lace up to my knees. But it’s the fluttering cape made of streams of orange, yellow, and red and the matching headpiece that define this costume. Cinna plans to light them on fire just before our chariot rolls into the streets.” —Katniss in The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
