Whereas Katniss Everdeen evokes America's heartland and Levi-Strauss roots, Effie Trinket's outlandish attire is symbolic of the excess of the Capitol city. Her outfits draw from sources as varied as Marie Antoinette to the modern pop-stylings of Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj, Katy Perry, and drag queens everywhere.
From makeup to wigs to bejeweled nails, which naturally all coordinate with her outfit, Effie Trinket is sure to cause some commentary in the fashion world. Her gold heels were even designed by Alexander McQueen, whose flair for the dramatic can certainly be seen in her stylings.
China Glaze has already jumped on the craze, releasing a set of Hunger Games-themed nail polish inspired by Effie. Colors come in Agro, Fast Track, Smoke & Ashes, and Luxe & Lush.
Go HERE to buy the Effie inspired nail polish!
