IT is one of the most anticipated blockbusters of the year and the stars of Hunger Games certainly didn't disappoint when they rocked glam looks at the red carpet premiere.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, sequel to the cult classic is being tipped to be one of the year's highest-grossing movies.

Oscar-winner Jennifer Lawrence looked sophisticated and demure in a full length white slash-neck dress.

But the 23-year-old couldn't hide her giddy inner child and attempted a playful grapple with co-star Josh Hutcherson as they arrived for the premiere in Leicester Square, London.

Her designer outfit featured a patterned panel down one side and Jennifer kept it classy by teaming it with a pair of simple black court shoes.

The female stars of the film brought style stakes to a new high with Willow Shields and Elizabeth Banks both opting for unseasonably bright yellow outfits. Laura Haddock oozed sophistication in her white backless dress. Meanwhile, Bob Geldof's daughter Pixie Geldof opted for a monochrome strapless dress.

The men scrubbed up well too. Miley Cyrus's ex Liam Hemsworth was looking particularly dapper in a grey suit. And Donald Sutherland teamed the suit with a scarf as he wrapped up against the chilly conditions.

Earlier in the day, cast members revealed how Woody Harrelson used to tease the leading lady on set whenever she forgot her lines.

Jennifer picked up a gong for best actress for her work in the acclaimed David O Russell comedy drama Silver Linings Playbook.

"She didn't bring her Oscar with her," said Hutcherson.

"I'm curious to know who brings their Oscar on set. But every time she would forget a line, Woody would go: 'Oh, better give that Oscar back!'"

Lawrence praised her family for making huge financial sacrifices to help her career in the early days.

"I wouldn't be here without my parents, who took out a second mortgage to let me do this," she said.
