Several members of the Zapwater team are obsessed with the Hunger Games trilogy. The young adult science fiction novels follow Katniss Everdeen, a girl who lives in a post-apocalyptic world in a country called Panem. The government holds all the power and the Hunger Games are held as an annual televised event where the Capitol chooses one boy and one girl from 12 districts for a battle where only one person survives. The books are addicting – trust me.

As we look to 2012, I anticipate that the movie is going to be a blockbuster smash. Lead male characters Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth will become Hollywood’s newest heartthrobs (think Robert Pattinson). Jennifer Lawrence (who plays Katniss) will make the covers of multiple women’s fashion magazines. Rumors will surface of real-life romance between Lawrence and Hutcherson among countless other celebrity tabloid stories.

The movie hits theatres nationwide on March 23, 2012. As we patiently wait for the movie to come out, asked fashion designers to “re-image” Katniss Everdeen’s fire dress from the book. And check-out the movie trailer HERE.

Here are some of my favorite fire dress interpretations:

Happy 2012,
