Capitol Couture, The Hunger Games' In-World Fashion Magazine

Hunger Games fans, check out the newest installment of the in-world fashion magazine, Capitol Couture. 

 From the beginning, Capitol Couture, The Hunger Games' in-world fashion magazine, has captivated fans with beautiful images, editorial detailing real-world couture (through the lens of the film's world) and exclusive content from The Capitol. Blurring the lines between the fictional and the factual, the Capitol Couture brand has amassed a record-setting following on its native Tumblr platform, catching the attention of major brands.

Lionsgate and Samsung launched today the final issue, titled Ultima Volatus ("Final Flight"), which features a collaboration with fashion icon/creative director Susanne Bartsch, famed photographer Steven Klein, supermodel & television host Hannah Davis. In the newly released photos, model Hannah Davis can be seen wearing Samsung's new Gear S2.

Capitol Couture
Since its 2012 launch, Capitol Couture has featured lavish fashions from The Capitol. Today's final issue expands its editorial focus to cover the Revolution happening throughout Panem and introduces the first of three exclusive revolution looks. The first look is heavily influenced by the motion and fluidity of changing times, as well as waving flags, like the mockingjay emblazoned flag used in anti-Capitol propaganda. More looks will be revealed over the next two weeks, drawing from similar revolutionary themes of the people living in Panem.

The blockbuster Hunger Games franchise has taken audiences by storm around the world, grossing more than $2.2 billion at the global box office. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 now brings the franchise to its powerful final chapter in which Katniss Everdeen [Jennifer Lawrence] realizes the stakes are no longer just for survival - they are for the future.
With the nation of Panem in a full scale war, Katniss confronts President Snow [Donald Sutherland] in the final showdown. Teamed with a group of her closest friends - including Gale [Liam Hemsworth], Finnick [Sam Claflin] and Peeta [Josh Hutcherson] - Katniss goes off on a mission with the unit from District 13 as they risk their lives to liberate the citizens of Panem, and stage an assassination attempt on President Snow who has become increasingly obsessed with destroying her.  The mortal traps, enemies, and moral choices that await Katniss will challenge her more than any arena she faced in The Hunger Games.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 is directed by Francis Lawrence from a screenplay by Peter Craig and Danny Strong and features an acclaimed cast including Academy Award®-winner Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Academy Award®-winner Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jeffrey Wright, Willow Shields, Sam Claflin, Jena Malone with Stanley Tucci and Donald Sutherland reprising their original roles from The Hunger Games and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. The impressive lineup is joined by The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 co-stars Academy Award®-winner Julianne Moore, Mahershala Ali, Natalie Dormer, Wes Chatham, Elden Henson and Evan Ross.

Lionsgate presents a Color Force / Lionsgate production.

LADY MIDNIGHT by Cassandra Clare, Coming March 8th, 2016 / 1st Edition Info!

Yesterday Cassandra Clare treated fans to a picture of LADY MIDNIGHT! Check out the image she shared on her social media accounts, below:

The book is real!!! We can not wait until March 8th to read it! Cassie also shared details about the 1st edition copies of Lady Midnight. Here's what she shared; *I bolded Cassie's responses.

Would their be a first collectors edition of Lady Midnight? And what would it have that the others dont?
Hi Cassie!!! I really love your books and I’m looking forward to reading the next book, Lady Midnight! Speaking of which I’m wondering, will there be a Collectors Edition? Also which publisher will distribute these Collectors Editions? Thanks!!!!!
— project-entity-
There will be a special first edition of Lady Midnight, just like there were special first editions of Clockwork Princess and City of Heavenly Fire (The Clockwork Princess entry on my tumblr contains a good explanation of what a first edition is and how to get one). It contains a few things that aren’t going to be in any future editions.
Every first page will be hand-stamped with a rune. (I wish I could sign them all, but it is beyond my ability to sign that many books.)
Even more specially, each first edition will contain a full short story, about the size of a Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy story. Lady Midnight takes place five years after the events of City of Heavenly Fire, and as many of you already know, it follows the adventures of Emma Carstairs and Julian and Mark Blackthorn at the Los Angeles Institute. They do know the characters from TMI, and several of them drop by, but the book is about Emma, Jules and co.
There is mention in Lady Midnight, when one of the TMI characters drops by, that the characters have come from a party. I decided to write the short story of that party, so we could check in more thoroughly, emotionally with the TMI characters,to see what’s going on with them and how it ties into the events of TDA. It’s a chance to check in on couples, life, politics, and just see how things are going for everyone: we’ll obviously see Jace, Clary, Magnus, Alec, Bat and Maia, Simon and Isabelle, baby Max, Jocelyn and Luke and Lily and some of the characters from Tales from Shadowhunter Academy — and, it’s not just any party; the night contains a marriage proposal for one of our couples. The story will exist only in the first edition of Lady Midnight; All hardback first editions in English of Lady Midnight will have, printed at the end, this short story.
Okay, this is an explanation of what a first edition is, what editions will have special content, and how to get those editions, whatever country you may be in or dimension you may inhabit. PLEASE read the whole thing before contacting me with questions! I will love you forever.
What’s a first edition?
Publishers print books in batches called print runs. Every book printed in the first batch of books printed is a first edition. “A first edition book is a copy that was printed in the first print run, when the book was originally published. If the books sell out, the publisher will authorize the printing of a new batch, called the second edition. When that stock is depleted, the next print run is called the third edition, and so on.“
How do I get a first edition?
A first edition is, again, every book that is one of the first batch of books printed by a publisher. There are a limited amount. When they sell out, then the rest of the books printed will be without the family tree. The best way to make sure you get a first edition is to pre order. You can do this online.
If you do not want to order online, you can go into any bookstore now and tell them that you wish to pre-order a first edition. They will call you when it comes in. Bookstores can do that. They put in their own order with the publisher, and the publisher makes sure they get those first editions. You can even do this at Walmart. You can do this in any country, in any bookstore where English language books are sold.
Will the family tree be in books in other languages?
I don’t know. Those books need to be translated. The family tree has been made available to all my foreign publishers and it is their choice as to whether they wish to include it in their books. If you want to know if they will have it in their editions, you should contact a bookstore in your country and ask!
