They say the first step is admitting you have a problem, so here goes: I’m obsessed with The Hunger Games! I think Katniss kicks-ass, am a card-carrying member of Team Peeta and came dangerously close to wearing a braid and a sheath of arrows when I saw the movie a couple of weeks ago. I’m so glad I skipped the braid, not just because it tips the crazy scale, but because the real style star of this show is not Katniss, it’s Effie Trinket, brought to life fabulously by Elizabeth Banks.

On-screen, Effie dons candy-hued hair, colorful couture and technicolor make-up only acceptable in the real-world if you work at a MAC counter. Her wardrobe boasts names like McQueen and Thierry Mugler and is completely over-the-top and amazing. I have to say, after seeing her on the red carpet I’m starting to think the same of Elizabeth. I’m majorly crushing on her wardrobe, which, just like her character, is at-once ladylike and attention-grabbing.
