When Lionsgate released the Capitol Portraits for Catching Fire, it became clear that costume designer Trish Summerville (The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo) had really upped the fashion ante for the second installment in the The Hunger Games trilogy.
Now, a new still from Catching Fire shows District 12 escort Effie Trinket (Elizabeth Banks) wearing a voluminous dress from one of the world’s most recognizable designer labels.

The frothy creation is from Alexander McQueen. Earlier today, the label confirmed via Twitter that Effie’s dress and matching shoes are from the label’s Fall 2012 ready-to-wear runway collection.
“The future’s usually shown as stark and cold. I wanted lightness, the sense that the dresses were hovering,” McQueen creative director Sarah Burton told Style.com when the collection debuted last March. Burton used voluminous shapes and patterns that would organically “explode” as the runway show progressed as a means of celebrating “a beautiful future, positivity, optimism.”
