The Great Gatsby

Now obviously this is a fashion blog not a film review site, but I recently went to see the massive blockbuster that is the Great Gatsby, having (very ashamedly) not read the book, I went to see the film with a completely open mind. Obviously I have seen the trailers and the completely effortless style that it has was what originally attracted me to it, however that was as far as it went for me, style in it's most extravagant and fabulous form but that was it, no real content just style. I felt like the build up to the finale lasted almost the whole film, which unfortunately meant that the climax was not as brilliant as expected. But the fashion, oh wow it was exactly how I pictured the 1920s and much more, the sparkle of Carey Mulligan's costumes were just fab even the crazy harletish outfits that Isla Fisher was wearing were so representative of the view of poor women at the time and they looked so much fun to wear!

This was my favourite look of the film

A couple more of Carey's best

The whole cast looking fabulous

I absolutely loved this head piece worn by Elizabeth Debicki
