This month the must-see movie is The Great Gatsby, and why is this film generating so much buzz? Start with star power extraordinaire! Based on the classic novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald and directed by Baz Luhrman (who also directed the 1996 version of Romeo and Juliet, as well as Moulin Rouge- so expect dazzling color, glitz and vertigo), 2013’s The Great Gatsby boasts Leonardo Dicaprio in the title role, and an impressive supporting cast. Mix in the glittering, gin-soaked, roaring 20’s and you have a movie that is sure to influence fashion this season.
Elizabeth Debicki as Jordan Baker is the ultimate flapper, bejeweled in geometric diamonds over a chic black dress. This style is oh-so-sleek and sophisticated, while boldly making a show of all that shiny bling.
Want to make a bold statement ? This stylish geometric diamond engagement ring set is sure to razzle dazzle.
More demure, but equally as glamorous is Cary Mulligan as Daisy Buchanan, Gatsby’s idealized love obsession. In this shot from the film, Daisy’s classic twenties bob is adorned with a diamond headband, complimenting the sparkle of her champagne cocktail dress. But it’s the multi-strand pearl bracelet that seems the most authentic accessory from the era- we simply adore the art-deco ring clasp!
Add some pearly 20’s shimmer to your look with this elegant pearl bracelet.
Isla Fisher’s character, Myrtle Wilson, has a look that this is flirty and fun, if not a wee bit trashy. This colorful style suits the character’s unfortunate station in life, and matches her flaming hair. But at the Great Gatsby premiere, red-headed Fisher displayed her own elegant personal style.
If the showy luxury of the 20’s is not your taste, you could capture Isla’s 2013 style with a timeless pair of diamond earrings.
