Hunger Games Premieres in the UK (with Pics)

Just a couple of days ago, Hunger Games has its world premiere at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles, California (USA). Now, UK has been invaded with the stars of the Hunger Games.  Read this article from MTV News.
Jen was once again the Girl in Gold, sporting a dazzling gilded halter dress and black belt, while co-star Elizabeth retreaded her citrus-color theme with a zesty lemon-hued frock (perhaps a bit of Effie’s fashion flamboyance has rubbed off on her!).
Also on hand for the big night were co-star Toby Jones, Liam’s bro Chris Hemsworth, former Spice Girl Mel B and a handful of Brit-lebs.
