the hunger games catching fire portrait

Today's news round-up is freshly served up for you to delve right into:

  • First up, it appears Katniss Everdeen has come along way since her bedraggled beginnings, going by these latest shots anyway. Our heroine and her fellow characters have been given a couture makeover for a series of promotional portraits for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. For her pic, Jennifer Lawrence dons a rather magnificent white feathered gown, featuring extravagant wing details, believed to have been reinterpreted from the Alexander McQueen A/W '12 show. Me likey, a lot. [Telegraph UK]

  • An exhibition dedicated to Jean Paul Gaultier and his impressive body of work is on its way to London. The showcase will be on display at the Barbican in April 2014, and will form part of an international tour. Among the highlights are Madonna's iconic conical corset, as well as pieces once worn by Kylie Minogue and Dita Von Teese. Overall The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From The Sidewalk To The Catwalk exhibition will feature over 140 couture and ready-to-wear items. [Vogue UK]

  • Speaking of Dita Von Teese, the burlesque beauty has been busy modelling the first completely 3D printed dress. The creation, made from powdered nylon and 12,000 black Swarovski crystals, was unveiled in New York. [Paper mag]

  • Betty Draper, oops I mean January Jones, was channelling her 1960s alter ego as she attended the Miu Miu show in Paris week. Sporting a flipped out Sixties 'do and cat-eye makeup it was much more Betty than January on the front row that's for sure. [The Cut]

  • David Bowie has teamed up with long-time pal Paul Smith to design the official T-shirt for his upcoming album, The Next Day, due to be released on March 11. The T-shirt will sell for £70, and will be available from paulsmith.co.uk from March 7.[Vogue UK]

  • Rumours doing the rounds say that Jennifer Aniston has chosen Valentino to design her wedding dress. The actress, who is just weeks away from tying the knot with Justin Theroux, reportedly wore that red Valentino number to the Oscars recently because the Italian designer has also created her wedding gown. Makes sense. [Grazia UK]
