Elizabeth Banks chooses tans that complement the colours of her dresses.

The 38-year-old actress turned out to the Los Angeles premiere of her new movie 'The Hunger Games' last night (12.03.12) sporting a St. Tropez tan that enhanced the orange hues of her short, one-shoulder gown.

Fiona Locke, St. Tropez skin finishing expert, said: ''Elizabeth was looking for a deeper bronzed look for the red carpet, so I gave her a more dramatic tone to enhance her bold colored dress.

''For touch ups, I recommend using the St. Tropez Self Tan Bronzing Mousse and Applicator Mitt. It is a quick and easy way to give your skin a boost for a special night out.''

Elizabeth has previously admitted she wanted her 'Hunger Games' alter-ego Effie Trinket - a woman who originates from the fictional Capitol region but organises 'tributes' for a rival district - to be ''tortured'' by her clothing in the movie.

She said: ''Everything you see on Effie is purposeful, nothing is whimsical. As an ambassador for the Capitol I wanted to make it clear Effie is oppressed, so all her clothes are constricting, corseted uncomfortable.

''And I wear crazy shoes that you would never be able to spend a 12-hour day in - I wanted her to be tortured by her clothes.''
