The Gatsby Girl premiere and shop the trend at Lipsy

The Great Gatsby is turning out to be the most influential fashion event of 2013. The premiere at the Cannes film festival on Friday was a super stylish event which saw the attendees pulling out all the stops in the style stakes. To put it quite simply, the abundance of beautiful looks on the big screen meant that it was simply unthinkable not to make the same amount of effort off-screen. Most fashion critics even commented on how glamorous the normally low-key star, Carey Mulligan looked on the red carpet, with sleek long hair and a slash of red lipstick.

Great Gatsby Premiere stars

Lipsy has some great Gatsby inspired pieces at the moment. Placing emphasis on the beautiful beading that was so important to the trends of the 1920s, but bringing things bang up to date with shorter lengths and strapless bodices, Lipsy have really excelled in creating pieces that will be perfect for addressing this trend now, but also surviving into next season and proving to be a great option come party season.

Take a look at some of my favourite pieces from the Gatsby trend at Lipsy.

    Saw the movie last night.
    Baz Luhrman captured the era with opulence and fine detail for the extravagant & over indulgent era.
    The Lipsy scalloped dress and the beaded dress were lovely – would need a stick insect bod to accompany them though! folk from that era had super trim bodies – pre junk food of the 50’s in the US x

      Haven’t got around to seeing it yet – it may be a DVD release. Have to say the Lipsy looks are gorgeous.
