  • Get Ready for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 With These Two Sneak Peeks!

    It's FINALLY almost time to see The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 in theaters, and we couldn't be more excited! The first part of the film finale comes out this Friday November 21st, so more and more sneak peeks are making their way out to the media. The most recent ones come by way of a movie clip and a release of one of Lorde's songs from the official soundtrack!

    Let's start with the movie clip! The stars of Mockingjay Part 1 stopped by Good Morning America recently to share the clip and answer some questions from fans. The clip shows Katniss watching Peeta plead with District 13 to stop the war, and Gale does not agree with the course Peeta has seemingly taken. Check out the emotional new teaser, and keep watching to hear all the very important (read: sarcasm!) questions Jennifer answers for her fans!

    Now on to the new song release! If you didn't already know, singer/songwriter Lorde curated the whole The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 soundtrack! She didn't only choose what artists and songs go into the soundtrack, but she's added some of her own into the mix, as well! Well, from what we've heard so far, she's done an amazing job with it, and the newest released song proves that even more! Lorde most recently released her cover of Bright Eye's "Ladder Song" from the soundtrack, and we can already tell how perfectly it fits with the theme and tone of the upcoming movie.

    It's shaping up to look like an incredible movie, just like the first two films in the series. With the movie out at the end of this week, we're sure there will be many more sneak peeks released in the coming days. We'll keep our eyes out and make sure to share them with you as we see them!

  • Jennifer Lawrence at The Hunger Games: Catching Fire NYC Premiere!

    Much like the Victory Tour that takes Katniss, played by Jennifer Lawrence, and Peeta, Josh Hutcherson, through the 12 districts after their win in the deadly Hunger Games, the stars of the sequel have spent the past week traveling the world, with premiere stops in London, Berlin, Madrid, Rome and Paris. Now, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire stars are finally finishing up their premiere back in the U.S. The movie just premiered in Los Angeles earlier this week, and last night they were in New York City.

    Since we're all about dresses at Rissy Roo's, we've of course have been paying full attention to Jennifer's looks on the red carpet. We loved her see-through gown at the L.A. premiere, but we're especially loving the cute little black dress she wore last night in NYC!

  • Catch Fire with Precious Formals & CoverGirl!

    We are so excited for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire premiere on November 22nd, that not only are we re-reading the novel, we're also finding ways to celebrate the release! Two of our favorite names in the fashion world, CoverGirl and Precious Formals, have been all about the Hunger Games. CoverGirl recently released a new makeup collection, called the Capitol Collection, in honor of the second Hunger Games movie. They've created signature looks for each of Panem's 12 Districts, from Luxury to Mining (and everything in between). Best yet, dress designer Precious Formals loved this idea so much that they recently showed how you can perfectly pair CoverGirl's district inspired makeups with their dresses for a complete look. Read on and pick a district to represent at your Prom or during the Holidays!

    CoverGirl Hunger Games District 1 Makeup

    This makeup was created by CoverGirl for District 1. Precious Formals recommends pairing the makeup with Style L46736, a mermaid evening gown that has shimmery golden lining that peaks through the gaps of the gown's lace-and-sequins overlay.

    CoverGirl Hunger Games District 2 makeup

    The makeup in the above picture was created by CoverGirl for District 2. Precious Formals style L9034 is the perfect dress choice for this district's representation of Masonry. Silver groups of sequins accent the body, scoop neckline, and sheer long sleeves of this chic and flirty dress.

    CoverGirl Hunger Games District 3 Makeup

    District 3 represents Technology, and CoverGirl's District 3 makeup and Precious Formals style P46728 are the perfect pair for this district. Multi-hued sequins create intricate Aztec tribal prints throughout this trendy short dress, with the exception of the neckline's small gemstone embellishments.

    CoverGirl Hunger Games District 4 makeup

    This makeup look was created by CoverGirl for District 4. Precious Formals recommends pairing it with Style P21017, an elegant gown that emits a holographic shimmer and features diamond-adorned halter straps that criss-cross in the back. It's definitely as shiny as a fish!

    CoverGirl Hunger games District 5 makeup

    The above makeup look was created by CoverGirl for District 5, which represents Power. Radiate beautifully in Precious Formals C10559, a strapless sweetheart mermaid gown encrusted with sequins and shiny stones that comes in a neon yellow and purple.

    CoverGirl HungerGames District 6 makeup

    This makeup look was created by CoverGirl for District 6, Transportation. Precious Formals says to pair it with Style W21046, a simple A-line silhouette accented by holographic sequins and purple gemstones.

    CoverGirl Hunger Games District 7 makeup

    CoverGirl's District 7 makeup can be perfectly paired with Precious Formals P46712A for a pretty green and yellow colored look that represents Lumber. It's a gorgeous dress that has asymmetrical waist cutouts and a single sheer sleeve in Ombre chiffon. It definitely gives this A-Line a very tropical appeal!

    Hunger Games District 8 CoverGirl makeup

    This makeup created by CoverGirl for District 8 can be paired with Precious Formals style L9005 to show off the beautiful colors associated with textiles. A thigh-high slit, scoop back and elongated front keyhole cutout spice up this shimmery high-necked gown.

    CoverGirl Hunger Games District 9 makeup

    CoverGirl's District 9 makeup is simple and natural, with just the right amount of shine. And, that's exactly why Precious Formals style P46772 is the perfect match! The dress' soft gold color stands out in a beautifully elegant way.

    CoverGirl Hunger Games District 10 makeup

    This makeup look was created by CoverGirl for District 10, which represents Livestock. Precious Formals recommends pairing it with Style P10561, a stunning mermaid gown with a corset sheer bodice and sweetheart neckline.

    CoverGirl Hunger Games District 11 makeup

    CoverGirl's District 11 makeup would look beautiful with Precious Formals P9060 to represent Agriculture. Sequins cover this plunging-halter gown until just below the hipline, where the sequined pattern spreads out to reveal a sheer floor-length skirt.

    CoverGirl Hunger Games District 12 makeup

    Lastly, District 12 is where the protagonist of The Hunger Games, Katniss, is from, and the dark colors with just the right hint of yellow/gold used in CoverGirl's District 12 makeup and Precious Formals style P9037 are a perfect representation of it. The sheer-paneled slits cut diagonally across the bodice and straight down one side of this sexy slitted gown makes Style P9037 particularly unique and reminds us of Katniss' braid!

  • Dress of the Week: Faviana 7182 Jennifer Lawrence Dress

    You may remember us mentioning Faviana style 7182 in our Best Dressed Celebrities of 2012 blog post that we wrote back in January. Jennifer Lawrence rocked a similar gold dress during the Hollywood premiere of the Hunger Games, and we loved the look so much that we made her one of our favorite four celebrity looks of 2012!

    Because we love Faviana style 7182 so much, this time we want to give the dress its own special spotlight! It's a sexy foil jersey mermaid style evening gown with mesh details. It comes in colors Oscar Gold, Sapphire, and Silver.

    One of the reasons we love the dress so much is because Jennifer isn't the only celeb known for rocking such a similar style. Pretty Little Liars star Ashley Benson wore the actual dress in the Sapphire color for a photo shoot she did with Faviana! Check out two of the shots below.

  • Best Dressed Celebrities of 2012

    The new year is finally here, and while that means looking ahead at what's to come, it also means reflecting on the year that's past. Of course, with our love for fashion, we've been looking back at some of the best dressed celebrities of 2012! We loved Lucky Magazine's list of their 25 best dressed stars because they included our favorite 4 in their picks. Check out our best dressed celebrities below and how you can get their look for your next formal event!

    Jennifer Lawrence rocked some very fashionable outfits througout her Hunger Games promo tour - they even earned her a gig as the next face of the Miss Dior handbag! Our favorite dress was the one she wore to the Hollywood premiere - a Prabal Gurung gold cut-out gown. The gown reminded us of the shiny outfits the contestants wore during the Opening Ceremonies of the Hunger Games. If you want to be the star of your prom, check out Faviana style 7182 - a foil jersey mermaid style evening gown with mesh cut-out details.

    Taylor Swift had a great year of fashion, from her casual looks, to being on the cover of Glamour, to dressing up in sparkly gowns at award shows. She's relatively consistent with her outfits, but she always looks so perfect, how can anyone complain?? We especially loved the nude gown with red floral embellishments that she wore to the CMA Awards show because of its elegance. If you want a similar look, try Sherri Hill style 21016 - a gorgeous strapless sweetheart high low gown with lace overlay.

    This soulful singer is always dressing in glittering gowns and cinched-waist skirts that suit her beautiful voice. We love that Lana Del Rey paired dark red lipstick and her long brown hair with this sparkly silver dress - she looks so glam! Get a similar look with the dress Night Moves style 6755 - an all-over sequin gown with matte and shiny sequins. The strapless bodice is accented with a beaded band at the waistline for a more fitted look.

    Jessica Chastain recently came into the spotlight for her role as a CIA analyst in the film Zero Dark Thirty. Even though she has a tough character to play in the film, she's been looking nothing less than gorgeous on the red carpet. Lucky Magazine says that Jessica tends to wear "feminine A-line silhouettes, well-placed sequins, and lovely lace." We definitely see all of that in our favorite champagne colored dress that she wore! If you'd like a similar look for prom, check out Primavera style 9490 - a gown with uniquely crafted sequins in a cross diamond pattern with a super sexy criss-cross low back.
