Sometimes a gown is just a gown, and sometimes it tells a story.
Rachel Zegler, star of “The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes,” wore this black-and-red Alexander McQueen gown on the red carpet for the European premiere of the film in Berlin earlier this month. It’s a pretty sharp dress by itself — but it also references an earlier moment in the movie franchise, when Katniss Everdeen (played by Jennifer Lawrence) wore a dress that magically burned up, starting at the hem. Presumably, Zegler didn’t burst into flames here, but it’s a nice callback.
