Lionsgate has upped the fashion ante for the second installment of The Hunger Games trilogy, Catching Fire, with a Tumblr dedicated to the Capitol's style sense. Right now, it just contains a portrait of Effie Trinket in a frothy dress and heel-less platform shoes, but more portraits are coming and it will allow fan's to share clothing, shoes, hairstyles and nail art inspired by the film.
Effie looks fab, for sure, but we're really just waiting to see Katniss Everdeen's Frye boots immortalized in oil paint.
