Elizabeth Banks and Effie Trinket and OMG I Love This Dress

First things first...

Let's talk about this amazing Elie Saab couture gown that Elizabeth banks wore to the London premier of  "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1" premiere. I'm working on an Effie Trinket DIY for the blog, but now I totally want to try and mimic this look. This dress is gorgeous.




Here it is on the runway:



Detail:



The entire collection is absolutely breathtaking - you can see it on the Elie Saab website (and you should!)

If I can't copy the dress - which, let's face it, I can't sew and hot glue doesn't really scream couture - I'm at least going to use it as jewelry inspiration. 

Speaking of Elizabeth Banks - I have an Effie Trinket costume DIY coming up on the blog this weekend. I decided to use the Alexander McQueen butterfly dress as inspiration:







...but changed it up to keep it with my own personal style, and also within my timeframe and budget. Here's a sneak peak until I post the full DIY this weekend:



Have a great day!
