The beautiful build-up to ‘The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes’


The real highlight of the promotional activities, however, has been the red carpets. So far there have been three — Berlin, London and Los Angeles — and the outfits of Rachel Zegler, who plays Lucy Gray, have definitely been the highlight of each night. Each of Zegler’s outfits was connected to an outfit seen in the original trilogy. At the Berlin premiere, her outfit resembled the flaming wedding dress worn by Katniss before the 75th Hunger Games. Zegler paid homage to Katniss’ dress during the Quarter Quell’s Tribute Parade at the London premiere. During the final red carpet in Los Angeles, she channeled the wedding dress worn by Annie Cresta in “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 2.” Zegler stunned in each outfit, and it was wonderful that she wanted to build such a strong connection to the original movies during each premiere.
