The remake of “The Great Gatsby” is scheduled for its premiere in December 0f this year. And the costumes are sure to be outstanding! Along with Boardwalk Empire and the Artist, this movie is is fueling a renewed interest in 1920s fashions. Many people think Jazz Era fashions consisted only of beaded and fringed flapper dresses. But most women wore styles quite different from the young, wild flapper girl who danced the night away in speakeasies. Romantic, floaty dresses with dropped waistlines and handkerchief hemlines were also popular for special occasions.
Here is a photo of Cary Mulligan who plays Daisy Buchanan in the “Gatsby” remake. On the set in a beautiful cream lace gown with assymetrical hem.
And here is Mia Farrow from the 1974 version of “The Great Gatsby”
This is a great look for a 1920’s vintage inspired wedding. Below is a dress we carry at Blue Velvet Vintage that is reminiscent of these romantic “Gatsby Era” fashions.
Finish off with t-strap pumps, cloche hat and long strands of pearls .
