Elizabeth Banks had a colorful red carpet run when the first Hunger Games premiered in 2011, and it looks as if the 39-year-old actress will continue that trend for the Catching Fire promo tour. The blond beauty looked radiant in a lemon-colored Jason Wu gown at the film's world premiere in London on Monday, Nov. 11.

Banks completed her look with a Jacob & Co. ring, a Gaydamak handcuff, Brian Atwood heels and a Nancy Gonzalez clutch. Banks joined her costars—including Liam Hemsworth, Jena Malone, Jennifer Lawrence, Sam Clafin and Josh Hutcherson—for a group photo op before the screening started.

The married mom of two tweeted that she had an "awesome time meeting the fans at the London World Premiere of The Hunger Games #CatchingFire. Y'all were crazy!"

Banks changed into a Michael Kors number for the official afterparty, held at the Royal Courts of Justice. The mint green dress featured an asymmetrical neckline and scooped fabric, as well as a sheer panel in the back. While there, the actress shared an Instagram picture of herself posing with a handful of fans dressed as her character, Effie Trinket.

Not long ago, Banks spoke to E! News about the second installment in the Hunger Games franchise. "It's amazing. I cannot wait," she said. "I love working on it." She also spoke about her character's out-of-this-world wardrobe. "They are museum-quality pieces," Banks raved. "They are mostly handmade. I'm not worthy of those clothes! Only Effie is worthy of those clothes."
