The Captiol Couture tumblr is a great idea - I love that a movie is using tumblr in this way.  But it has a few flaws that are bugging me - for one, putting all the pictures in the text so they don’t show up when you reblog the post.   
This gif of Effie shows her wearing Alexander McQueen shoes, also both this entry and this entry mentions Alexander McQueen as being vintage. This is giving Suzanne Collins’ novels a backstory that they didn’t have.  Are we supposed to believe that the Hunger Games universe is set in the future of our current timeline?  I always thought it was set in an alternate timeline branching off of our timeline from around the 1930’s and that it was happening around the 1950’s.  If you have some examples from the book of when it is supposed to be set, please reblog this and add them.  When I was read the series, I kept waiting for some mention of a when and where, and the lack of it was frustrating, but I might have missed something. 
Also, and this is a fashion purist thing, they have Thierry Mugler’s most infamous piece The Chimera Dress labeled as being MUGLER, which no, that’s wrong. Nicola Formichetti is the designer of MUGLER and he did not design that beautiful piece of fanatastical art, the genius that is Thierry Mugler did, for his Fall Couture 1997 show.
