Lorde takes the reins of the ‘Hunger Games: Mockingjay’ soundtrack

Get your three-finger salute in the air, because this fall Panem is gonna be rocking. 

'Hunger Games' magazine Capitol Couture is viral marketing you want to read
In the new update, both former Hunger Games tributes are shown as silent “living portraits,” modeling the all-white outfits we saw in the first teaser trailer for Mockingjay Part 1.

Most of the costumes are from carefully chosen designers from the real world, with Peeta wearing menswear by Maison Martin Margiela, a label known for using unusual materials in their designs.
