Last night was the premiere of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 and it was *quite* the star-studded event. The film’s actors and actresses were out in full force and were full of style on the red carpet, especially Jennifer Lawrence, Elizabeth Banks and Katie Price who each rocked gorgeous dresses that featured a super unique cutout in it. Since even the smallest cutouts can transform a basic garment into a show stopper (see: the classy underboob cutouts on Laverne Cox’s amfAR gala dress), it makes sense why they’ve been popping up on celebs’ outfits time and time again — and why they were everywhere on the premiere of this blockbuster. Scroll down to see how three Hunger Games stars each wore the newest cutout styles.



J.Law totally killed it in this floor-length Christian Dior Couture dress that had a delicate red print on it. The sides of the dress were cutout but held together with two thick chain straps which ensured there wouldn’t be any wardrobe malfunctions. She kept her accessories simple to keep the focus on the chains, which we’re thinking would be a stellar way to DIY a summery cutout top to make it feel more winter weather-appropriate.



Elizabeth Banks’ long, satin-y cream tunic was one of the most unique looks of the night for sure. Featuring a cutout that went from the center of her midsection to the floor, the outfit was one of the chicest ways to wear  a dress over pants ever. Keep this layering hack in mind this fall when you need to look sophisticated amid unpredictable weather.



While Katie Price has never been one to shy away from a bold look, she really took it to the next level at this premiere. Her barely-there dress featured a cutout on her side that continues to plunge around to the back — a detail that is sexily concealed (save the wind!) by a cool black cape. If you’re looking for more coverage when you’re rocking a cutout top this fall, take a cue from Katie and add a cape to your look.
