Fashion Friday – on Great Gatsby fashions

OK, so you can’t swing a cat around at the moment without hitting something to do with Baz’s Gatsby, but that’s because the fashion is so. d*mn. good. Congrats Catherine Martin, you have excelled even the brilliance that was your interior styling in Australia (unfortunately the interior styling was the best part of that movie. Shame. Moving on). As an aside, if you liked the interiors of Australia you should check out the line of rugs and wallpaper Catherine designed afterwards. Art nouveau meets Australiana. Stunning.

In case you’ve been living under a rock, Baz Luhrmann recently released his epic production of The Great Gatsby. I loved it, but then I’m a bit of a Baz fan from long back, so I was going to love it regardless. I think he’s got an amazing eye, and I love the clever theatre he brings to movies. But I LOVE the glitz and glamour that his wife Catherine brings to the films, in my mind they are the best part. They timed the release of TGG well, as 1920s fashion has been rising in popularity over the last few seasons (perhaps due to Downton Abbey?), and now they can claim it as their own doing! Very sneaky 🙂

Glamourous 1920s fashion can be incorporated into any wardrobe, and adds a sense of drama to the dullest of outfits. Think beautiful sparkles, sequins, lace, silver, pale colours, gorgeous headware and sumptuous fur (faux, please!).

Let’s look at a few short sequin dresses:


Love the sequins. And lace! Here are some gorgeous lace dresses:


How about some 1920s inspired pants and skirts?


And the other stuff…


Just add a string of pearls and you’re set 🙂
