It might seem a little unfair to pit the female leads in the upcoming Hunger Games film against each other in a fashion face-off, but given their film's highly competitive subject matter, it's only natural to take a closer look at the ensembles sported by Jennifer Lawrence (Katniss Everdeen) and Elizabeth Banks (Effie Trinket) over the past couple of weeks.

Thus far, each star seems to be sticking to a well-defined style M.O. Jennifer Lawrence has gravitated towards sleek silhouettes that highlight her hourglass figure, while Elizabeth Banks has been having a blast in brilliant, eye-catching hues.

Lawrence seems to be playing off her Hunger Games character Katniss' flammable gown with her fitted metallic frocks, which have caught light on the red carpets in Los Angeles (peek-a-boo Prabal Gurung) and London (Ralph Lauren). She pared it back a bit in Paris with a saucy-yet-stately Tom Ford dress, and later showed off her stems in sky-high black peep-toe sandals for a chat with David Letterman.

Elizabeth Banks, meanwhile, is confining all neutrals to her feet. The charismatic actress attended her first Hunger Games premiere in a flirty tangerine Versace frock, but went even brighter and bolder in London in canary yellow Bill Blass. For the Paris premiere, Banks slipped into a shimmering Marc Jacobs getup, matched expertly with futuristic black platform pumps.

These ladies obviously have very different approaches to the red carpet. Which do you favor?
