"The Hunger Games" star Jennifer Lawrence is on the verge of going from that actress who you should have heard of to that actress who you never stop hearing about.
Her much-anticipated film opens Friday, and the 21-year-old has been hitting premieres and screenings and talk shows across the globe. This is as good a time as any to pull together a bunch of her recent red-carpet looks.
When the mania fully sets in and the publicity shots start to blur with the paparazzi, you can look back on this moment. We've watched Kristen Stewart go through it, although the attention on her has much to do with her romance with "Twilight" co-star Robert Pattinson. When Rooney Mara did a worldwide blitz for "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo," we called her out for her particularly consistent style.
Here's Lawrence, below from left, at a screening Tuesday night in New York; outside of the Ed Sullivan Theater after doing the "Late Show"; and at the film's premiere in Paris on March 15.
Lawrence dazzled in London on March 14; in Berlin she was on fire in a red lace Marchesa dress on March 16; and in Los Angeles on March 12 she was the golden girl.
And finally, let's step away from the red carpet for the reason we're all here: Katniss Everdeen in a scene from "The Hunger Games."
