JENNIFER LAWRENCE: The film's star wore Dior - continuing her rather tiresome red-carpet-exclusive tie-up with the brand. While this Couture Fall 2013 dress looks amazing in the shot to the left, front-on it was unflattering and an awkward length.

JENNIFER LAWRENCE: While it looked kind of like she'd rolled around in Skittles, the bold sequinned panel at least added interest to the 23-year-old's look. And we do like her new pixie crop styled this way ... but, overall, find this look underwhelming (we miss the bold gold Prabal Gurung gown she wore at the last Hunger Games premiere).

ELIZABETH BANKS: She plays the extravagantly-dressed Effie Trinket in the movie, and so it's apt that the star has gone bold for the red carpet. She easily upstages Jennifer Lawrence in this yellow Jason Wu gown. While the fit up-top was a little awkward, overall this look is dazzling.

JENA MALONE: Oh gosh I wish J-Law had worn colour. Here, Jena Malone looks vibrant in a bold red Monique Lhuillier gown. I'm not a huge fan of the marching band shoulders on her, but in the end, she does look like a girl on fire.

WILLOW SHIELDS: The lovely 13-year-old (who plays Katniss' younger sister in the movie) wears a lemon yellow Emilia Wickstead dress with some pretty amazing Aperlai shoes.

THE BOYS: Liam Hemsworth (left) went for rugged facial hair and an unusual barbed wire tie that I officially hate, but can understand in the context of the movie. Meanwhile, Josh wore a more classic and overall more dapper Emporio Armani suit.

LAST YEAR'S LOOKS: At the first film's LA and London premieres, Lawrence dazzled in Prabal Gurung (left) and Ralph Lauren (right).

Jennifer Lawrence disappointed in Dior at the London premiere of The Hunger Games last night.

While the star's backless, partly-beaded dress wasn't terrible, it hardly compared to the shimmering gold gowns she wore at the first films' premieres last year. 

Elizabeth Banks and Jena Malone stuck to The Hunger Games style, wearing bold, bright gowns that wouldn't look out of place in The Capitol.
