Rachel Zegler Radiates in Fiery Gown: Rachel Zegler attended the Berlin premiere of ‘The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes’ at Zoo Palast on Sunday, and her outfit set the red carpet ablaze. The 22-year-old actress, who portrays Lucy Gray Baird in the film, donned a captivating sleeveless black Alexander McQueen gown with a fiery red mermaid tail. This attire seemed to pay homage to the original Hunger Games character Katniss Everdeen, famously known as “The Girl on Fire.”
Zegler complemented her look with silver hoop earrings, a middle-parted hairstyle, and dark-red lipstick. Her accessories included a royal-blue bracelet and a ring on her index finger. Stylist Sarah Slutsky Tooley shared Zegler’s stunning ensemble on Instagram with the caption: “Alexander McQueen for the @songbirdsandsnakes Berlin Premiere. @thehungergames.”
During the premiere, Zegler shared the red carpet with her co-star Tom Blyth, who plays the role of a young Coriolanus Snow in the Hunger Games prequel. Blyth sported a stylish black blazer, a T-shirt, a silver chain, loose pants, and black boots.
Zegler’s social media documented her night in Berlin, where she reshared snapshots and videos, including moments with her real-life boyfriend Josh Andrés Rivera and co-star Hunter Schafer. In addition, she provided glimpses of her makeup, meticulously done by Valeria Ferreira.
Directed by Francis Lawrence, ‘The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes’ is a prequel based on Suzanne Collins’ 2020 book of the same name. The film, set 64 years before the original series, tells the story of Lucy Gray Baird, who is selected as a tribute from District 12 for the 10th annual Hunger Games. Lawrence described Lucy Gray as an “anti-Katniss,” highlighting her extroverted and performative nature compared to Katniss’s introverted and stoic character.
The highly anticipated prequel stars Rachel Zegler, Peter Dinklage, Viola Davis, Jason Schwartzman, and others, and it is set to hit theaters on November 17, delivering a fresh perspective on the Hunger Games universe.
