Bold. Fierce. Coolly confident. The Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence seems to effortlessly channel the very best qualities of her character, Katniss Everdeen. On the red carpet of The Hunger Games premieres around the world, Lawrence has stood out as the clear champion. From her jaw-dropping fashion choices to her innate finesse, Lawrence is well on her way to superstardom.
Though Jennifer Lawrence seems like the obvious choice to play the role of Katniss Everdeen, the decision did not come so easily for the actress herself. I gave myself three days [to decide on the role]. I knew from reading the books that I loved 'The Hunger Games.' I just didn't know if it was worth changing my life for, she explained in the April issue of Glamour magazine. She knew that the role would launch her into the superstardom stratosphere.
Lawrence beat out the likes of Chloe Moretz, Hailee Steinfeld, Emma Roberts and Shailene Woodley for the role of Everdeen in The Hunger Games.
The people who used to ignore me at parties, now they're nice to me and kissing my ass. But nobody's staked outside my house. I wanted to make sure that when I said yes, I wouldn't regret it. And I don't regret it. I would have said no because I was scared, and then I would have been that bitter actress telling my grandkids, 'I'm the one that turned it down.'
On the red carpet for The Hunger Games premieres, Jennifer Lawrence looked right at home beside seasoned veterans Elizabeth Banks and Donald Sutherland.

She embodied Katniss Everdeen, otherwise known as The Girl on Fire, not only in attitude, but also in physical appearance. At the Los Angeles premiere, the first event of the press tour, Lawrence opted for a brilliant gold Prabal Gurung gown with cut-out sides, a fitted body and a fishtail skirt. At the London premiere, she wore a bronzed Ralph Lauren gown in a sexy python fabric. For the Berlin red carpet, Lawrence went with a fire-engine red Marchesa dress with pleated skirt.
Jennifer Lawrence kept her hairstyles a bit edgier, as Katniss Everdeen would do. In L.A., she flaunted a bun interwoven with rhinestone-studded gold headbands. Lawrence had her hair done by Dove celebrity hairstylist Mark Townsend. Thank you @jenniferbehr for the gorgeous headbands I used in Jennifer Lawrence's hair for #thehungergames premiere! he tweeted.

She kept her makeup simple and flawless - think smoky eyes with sharp eyeliner to highlight the blue hue, rosy blush for a naturally flushed look and pale pink lips. Us Weekly got the scoop on how Lawrence's makeup artist, Jillian Dempsey, prepped the star for her big premieres.
For Jennifer's bold and glamorous look, Jillian put the focus on Jennifer's eyes by lining them with a deep black liner and then layering a gold eyeshadow on the actress's lids. Using a featherbrush, Jillian blended the edges of the liner with the gold shadow. Merging the two textures and colors helped create a multidimensional effect that appeared as a sparkling black. By darkening Jennifer's brows, Jillian further accentuated the eyes and framed her face, wrote Us Weekly.
To create Jennifer's sunkissed glow, Jillian used her new Jillian Dempsey for Avon Professional Perfect Contour Powder in Blissful to sculpt cheeks first, then layered a custom mix of two peachy cream blushes on top. This created Jennifer's overall soft, warm complexion. For a finishing touch, Jillian opted for a nude lip- she applied a lipstain and then swiped on a nude lipstick to achieve a creamy texture, concluded Us Weekly.
