"Hunger Games" fans are starved for all things related to author Suzanne Collins' best-selling trilogy-gone-blockbuster movie -- and fashion may be at the top of the list. The story about a post-apocalyptic world where a modern Joan of Arc faces death in a reality-style arena game doesn't exactly seem like the breeding grounds for shoppers' lust. But strangely enough, it is. At the heart of the matter is 16-year-old heroine Katniss Everdeen, played by Jennifer Lawrence, an archer who is part tomboy, part glamour girl, and all bravery. Bottom line: females are fascinated by the character.
