Jennifer Lawrence's back did all the talking at the Paris premiere of The Hunger Games.

The lauded star of the next huge young-adult franchise donned a deceptively simple black dress for her walk down the red carpet at the Cinéma Gaumont Champs-Elysée Marignan.

But, as was the case with Katniss Everdeen's intricately styled Games-wear, there was more to see than initially met the eye as the 21-year-old actress made her way into the arena. Er, theater.

Having figured out many events ago that clean lines and classic shapes suit her, Lawrence's big reveal came in the form of a plunging back, the cutout lined with a golden zipper that ended atop the petite star's left hip—giving the impression that one tug would send the whole outfit plunging to the floor.

Not exactly Cinna's armor, but it was perfect for Paris!

Also in attendance were Lawrence's leading men, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth, Elizabeth Banks (in Effie-approved sequins) and The Hunger Games director Gary Ross.

And we doubt anyone was complaining about having to walk behind Lawrence on the red carpet.
