Few people make fashion statements so often and as creatively as Hunter Schafer does. The 23-year-old actress best known for her role as Jules Vaugh on the hit HBO show Euphoria, also a model, and activist has a penchant for alternative and avant-garde styles that reflect her personality and identity. But on Sunday, November 6, Schafer took her fashion game to a whole new level when she attended the premiere of The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes in Berlin, Germany.
Schafer, who plays the role of Tigris Snow, the cousin and confidante of Coriolanus Snow, the future president of Panem, in the prequel movie based on the novel by Suzanne Collins, looked like a walking piece of art in a stunning couture gown by Schiaparelli. The gown, which was part of the French label’s fall/winter 2023/2024 collection, was designed by Daniel Roseberry, who is known for his fantastical and surreal creations that blur the lines between fashion and art.

The gown featured a skin-tight silhouette that was covered with hand-painted mosaic details in various shapes and colors, creating a swirling and abstract pattern that resembled a painting. The gown also had a mock turtleneck, long sleeves that extended over Schafer’s hands, and a raw hemline that added a touch of edginess. Underneath the mosaic layer, there was a crochet layer that seemed to hold together the different pieces of art. The gown was a masterpiece of craftsmanship and technique, as well as a tribute to the artistic vision of Roseberry, who described his collection as “free, spontaneous, painterly”.
Schafer complemented the gown with a simple pair of white heels, and little else letting the dress take center stage Her makeup was subtle and elegant, with a neutral palette used for the overall look, fall coloured lips completed her no makeup-makeup look. Her long blonde hair was left loose and flowed down her back in an artfully messy tangle. This highlighted her features and unique dress and she looked radiant and confident in her own skin.
Schafer was joined by her co-star Rachel Zegler, who plays the role of Lucy Gray Baird, the original victor of the Hunger Games, in the prequel movie. Zegler also looked stunning in a black Alexander McQueen gown that featured a corsetted bodice, a sheer skirt, and a feathered hem which was inspired by Katniss Everdeen’s Catching Fire dress. The two actresses posed together on the red carpet, showing off their contrasting but equally captivating styles.
Schafer’s couture gown was not only a fashion statement but also a reflection of her love for art and culture. Schafer, who is a talented artist herself, has often expressed her appreciation for various forms of art, such as painting, drawing, photography, and music. She has also used her platform to advocate for social justice and LGBTQ+ rights, as well as to share her personal journey as a transgender woman.

Schafer’s appearance at the premiere of The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes was a show-stopping moment that showcased her edgy and alternative taste. She looked like a walking piece of art and proved once again that she is one of the main stars to look out for in her generation.
