She paired the look with a Jacob & Co. ring, a Gaydamak handcuff, Brian Atwood heels and a Nancy Gonzalez clutch, according to E! Online.

For the after party, Banks chose yet another Jason Wu design. This time, opting for a pale sage metallic dress with an asymmetrical neckline and a sheer panel in the back. Banks took to Instagram and posted a photo of her posing with a group of fans who dressed like her "Hunger Games" character Effie Trinket at the after party, which was held at the Royal Courts of Justice.


"#effietakesover," Banks captioned the photo.

On the red carpet, Banks dished about the highly anticipated second film adaption of Suzanne Collins' popular books.

"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."

In another interview with RadioTimes.com, Banks said that "there is no Effie without all of that," referring to all the makeup and over-the-top fashion outfits.

"Effie requires a total transformation," Banks said.

"It takes about three to four hours every day, from when I arrive to when I go to set to shoot," she continued. "But it's worth it because there is no Effie without all of that."

Speaking of transformations, Banks is included in the voice cast of "The LEGO Movie," directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller. Also starring in the movie is Chris Pratt, Cobie Smulders, Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill, Morgan Freeman, Will Ferrell, Liam Neeson, Allison Brie, and Will Arnett. The film will release in theaters on Feb. 7, 2014.
