When it comes to getting a little inspiration fashion wise what better way than seeing what celebrities are wearing at the moment? Admittedly, some famous faces are more sharply dressed than others and – perhaps deservedly – are seen as trendsetters, even if they have benefited from a little extra help with their looks via procedures such as rhinoplasty and access to personal trainers.
At the present time there’s plenty of buzz surrounding The Great Gatsby – Baz Luhrmann’s bigscreen adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s famous novel. Those unfamiliar with the story might be interested to hear it is set in the 1920’s and focuses on the life of millionaire Jay Gatsby and others living in the fictional town of West Egg, Long Island.
As you may expect the film features a whole variety of stunning gowns and sharply tailored suits, but despite being set 90 years ago it is also having a real impact on current fashions. For gents, much of the appeal in terms of style can be drawn from Leonardo Di Caprio and Tobey Maguire, who play Gatsby and Nick Carraway respectively.
Both males are arguably blessed with natural good looks but they look even better than usual with their slicked back hairstyles and smart attire. It could see even more men following a trend that really seemed to take off following the popularity of TV shows such as Mad Men and Boardwalk Empire.
Of course, there’s plenty of good ways that ladies can incorporate a little vintage chic in to their wardrobes too, as the film’s female stars – including Carey Mulligan and Isla Fisher – are seen in an array of gorgeous items.
One of the most eye-catching things about their ensembles is the stunning selection of jewellery on show, from diamond-covered dresses to necklaces, rings and headpieces. But you don’t need to be rich in order to achieve a similar look as simply shopping around online, on the high street and in vintage stores could get you the right results at a reasonable price.
Fisher – who is married to funnyman Sacha Baron Cohen – has even recently been spied in a 1920’s-style dress on the red carpet for her new action flick Now You See Me. Its premiere at AMC Lincoln Square Theatre in New York City saw her wearing a long, beaded black number that we think would have looked right at home at a lavish Gatsby party. So have you thought about giving some vintage inspired items a try yourself?
