A Look Back At The First Hunger Games Red Carpet Premiere

Catching Fire Poster

The Los Angeles red carpet premiere of Hunger Games: Catching Fire is less than a week away! In a few days, fans will start setting up their campsites outside the Nokia Theater in L.A. Live, a familiar scenario for Twihards, and a totally new experience for Hunger Games fanatics. The red carpet premiere for the first Hunger Games movie was held last March 12, 2012. I was lucky to be part of it and it was, in fact, my first ever red carpet experience. There was no camping out whatsoever, I got there a few hours before the start of the arrivals and I still got in a pretty good spot.

Jennifer Lawrence Hunger Games

I didn’t know any of the main actors of the film, so I just kept taking pictures of whomever I saw who happened to be in fancy clothes. Jennifer Lawrence looked really pretty in that gold dress. Back then, she was just another actress to me. Now, she’s one of my favorite Hollywood celebrities. What a difference a year and a half makes!

And if you’re like me who can’t make it to the event, you can watch the live stream on Yahoo! on Monday, November 18th at 9 PM ET/6 PM PT.

Happy Hunger Games and may the odds be in your favor!

Back at The Grove. It’s not even summer yet but this day was so hot! And it’s not because of the sun, it’s because two of the Victoria’s Secret Angels were here!

Okay to be honest, I didn’t know much about the who’s who in the supermodel world so this was  my initiation.

Alessandra Ambrosio. Wow. This woman’s got “gorgeous” written all over her. She’s got this wild look that makes you feel like she’s gonna eat you alive. In  a very sexy way, that is.

Candice Swanepoel. She DOES look like an angel who descended from the heavens. She’s my favorite from now on.

There was a little bit of a swimsuit fashion show as well. Thank you, Extra!

And thanks to Contactmusic.com for this photo. I’m the guy wearing green on the left. It’s pretty cool that we’re all wearing shades. Yay! We got something in common! Haha.
