Crucial Update

Elizabeth Banks Went Full-On Christmas Tree at the Hunger Games LA Premiere

The Los Angeles premiere of final Hunger Games film may have been its most subdued — no one wore armpit cutouts, everyone's sleeves were pretty in control, and Woody Harrelson managed to change out of his pajamas. The stars did seem to agree, for whatever reason, that the Los Angeles premiere would be the prime opportunity to debut their holiday party outfits.

Though perhaps Elizabeth Banks's striped and sparkly column Dolce & Gabbana gown was the most on-theme (in that it looks like a literal walking Christmas tree), Natalie Dormer and Willow Shields looked like angelic tree-toppers, Donald Sutherland and Woody Harrelson accessorized with festive scarves, and Jennifer Lawrence continued her Dior streak with a scallop-necked white Dior dress that was very Ghost-of-Christmas-Past. Scroll through the gallery above to see all the looks, including Ashlee Simpson channeling Kim K's pregnancy style.
