OFFICIAL: Capitol Couture's 'Inside the Capitol's Most Glamorous Party'

Capitol Couture has released a feature of the Capitol's party of the year. We get a sneak peek at the gala at President Snow's mansion in three new gifs. 
Gala at President Snow's Mansion
Everyone in the Capitol knows that an invite to President Snow’s Victory Tour Culmination Party is a precious commodity. (In fact, rumor has it that a band of citizens who were trying to counterfeit the ticket were caught by Peacekeepers.) On the big night, denizens lined the gate of his mansion in the hope of a close-up glance of elite citizens like Haymitch Abernathy, Effie Trinket, Plutarch Heavensbee or Cinna. Some victors chose to enter via Snow’s secret underground tunnel and snubbed the crowd. But Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark took a moment to wave and smile at everyone.
There was plenty to see. The exterior of the mansion’s majestic facade was awash in vibrant rotating color; patterns of light danced along the walls as the fountains’ choreographed streams matched the music in time. It all made the perfect backdrop for the parade on the red carpet. This year, tactile materials like organza, crinoline, tulle and feathers made a huge showing. One guest arrived wearing a couture gown of violet emu feathers that shed bits of candy-colored fluff whenever she twirled for the paparazzi.
No photographers were allowed inside to capture the event. But I saw Katniss and Peeta whispering on the dance floor and nibbling off each other’s plates. At one point, Effie had to intervene when an overzealous—and inebriated—fan tried to dominate their attention. The District 12 escort— decked out in frothy tiers of lavender tulle —charmed sponsors while Haymitch looked on and smirked.

Right at midnight, a Technicolor starburst appeared in the sky as a fireworks show started. For some, the extraordinary pyrotechnics proved to be a great distraction for more hijinx. What did Plutarch Heavensbee show Katniss, as they danced? Did Portia and Cinna come up with a honeymoon wardrobe for the young engaged couple from District 12? Expect a full report as CC brings you the best party coverage of this Victory Tour grand finale event.
