Katniss, Peeta, Gale Effie: the gang's all here!

"The Hunger Games: Mockingjay-Part 1" world tour kicked off on Monday night in London and, as usual, fashion was front and center, but it wasn't Jennifer Lawrence who stole the show.

It was her co-star, Elizabeth Banks. The 40-year-old actress, who plays Capitol fashionista, Effie Trinket, was absolutely breathtaking in an ethereal Elie Saab gown with stormy hues. The watercolor gown faded from red and pink tones to a gray-blue and also featured a Watteau cape-train.

Style darling Jennifer Lawrence looked dazzling in a more demure, high-low Dior gown with black, delicate flowers. The outfit was a safe bet for the Girl on Fire, but she still looked lovely in the sweet frock. T-strap black heels and a black headband rounded out her youthful look.

As for the gents, Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson both suited up in classic black and navy suits respectively.

Check out all the red carpet looks above, including newcomers Julianne Moore and Natalie Dormer.

For her first major premiere for "The Hunger Games," Lawrence decided on a fitting gold Prabal Gurung gown. The metallic number, which lit up the carpet, was on-trend with sleek cutouts and showcased her svelte physique. (Photo by John Shearer/WireImage)

But she really turned heads when she turned her back to the camera. The Prabal Gurung gown had an amazing open back and felt very Katniss like with it's flowing train. We're sure Cinna was impressed. (Photo by Steve Granitz/WireImage)

Lawrence clearly had a deep affection for gold gowns while she promoted the first "Hunger Games" flick. She stepped out at the UK premiere in a snakeskin Ralph Lauren number with a black YSL belt. (Photo by Mike Marsland/WireImage)

In her early days, the blonde beauty loved frilly frocks. This red Marchesa dress, which featured a dropped hemline and intricate lace dealing, was sexy up front and even sexier in the back. It was a stunning style for the Berlin premiere of "The Hunger Games."(Photo by Franziska Krug/Getty Images)

London loves a little sparkle and so do we!  Lawrence went for this candy-like Dior Couture gown with a simple white bodice and sequined panel at the UK premiere of "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire." Her navy Kurt Geiger pumps were the perfect pop of color to round out the ensemble. (Photo by Mike Marsland/WireImage)

While the Dior Couture dress was subtle in the front, it was a winner in the back with a deep backless cutout and a flowing piece. It almost has a wing-like quality. Do you like the look? (Photo by Karwai Tang/WireImage)

The stunning star suited up with a white trenchcoat dress at the Berlin premiere of "The Hunger Games - Catching Fire." The simple, sleek style from Dior was a refreshing change from her glamorous dresses. (Photo by Luca Teuchmann/WireImage)

Leave it to Katniss to play with a little bit of sexy and sultry. At "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" premiere in Madrid, Lawrence dazzled in a midnight blue Dior dress, which featured a daring hemline and a sheer bottom. Her messy tresses finished off the look.

In Rome, it was all about romance. The beauty showed off her softer side in a vanilla-colored Dior Couture gown with an asymmetrical, strapless neckline and billowy folds. (Photo by Stefania D'Alessandro/WireImage)
Lawrence vamped things up at the Paris "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" premiere in this pleated and angular Dior number and a simple set of Christian Louboutin heels. She polished off the style with a currant lip. (Photo by Marc Piasecki/WireImage)

This look is easily one of Lawrence's most famous. The edgy actress took a walk on the wild side in a Dior Coutoure dress with a black bodysuit, sheer overlay, and chunky black belt. She amped up the sexy factor with a red lip and a smoky eye. (Photo by Jeffrey Mayer/WireImage)

Simple is often a good way to go. For the New York premiere of "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire," Lawrence rocked a Dior dress with an embellished crop top. (Photo by James Devaney/WireImage)
