With the anticipation finally over, The Great Gatsby was finally released last week. Not only did it make its silver screen debut, it opened the world famous Cannes Film Festival, and even the wet weather didn’t stop Hollywood’s finest stepping out onto the iconic red carpet to witness the upcoming best of the best in worldwide cinema.
You may remember that back in March with the release of the official trailer and cast photos, we blogged about the infamous Gatsby glamour with some of our favourite picks of vintage inspired jewellery sure to create a twenties look complete with a contemporary edge. This time we are looking at the style of the female leads of the most talked about film this year from their characters right through to their own red-carpet looks.
Carey Mulligan, the female lead of The Great Gatsby who plays the unconventional character of Daisy, wowed the crowds as she stepped out in a beautiful blush pink Dior gown. With a plunging V neckline, structured lines in the full skirt and the delicate straps of the dress, although simple, looked stunning on her pale complexion, with the subtle pink hue enhanced by a bright red lip.
Carey opted for sophisticated diamond jewellery to accessorise her gown, with drop earrings and a simple yet classic tennis bracelet to complete her red-carpet look. These intricately designed drop diamond earrings exude elegance and would be ideal for accessorising a formal look, or even a beautiful addition to your bridal jewellery on your wedding day. Their beautifully timeless feel also stays true to the Gatsby influence, perfect for any vintage fashion enthusiast.
Carey’s Cannes look was graceful, simple and reflected some of the elegant nature shown in Daisy’s flapper girl style. Extravagant pearls, vivid precious stones and sparkling diamonds were a must for any upper class woman in the 1920’s and ,at a time when denim was only worn by workmen, there was no exception for looking anything less than absolutely glamorous.
This art deco inspired diamond shaped pendant set on a string of freshwater pearls captures the essence of 20’s glamour in every aspect, making it ideal for re-creating your own vintage style.
Isla Fisher, who also stars in The Great Gatsby as Myrtle Wilson, wore a show-stopping red gown from Oscar De La Renta, with a bouquet lace sweetheart and full ruffled skirt. The glamorous red-head accessorised her dress with a beautiful necklet full of vibrant coloured stones set in 18ct yellow gold. This bold yet elegant jewellery is representative of the classic style worn by upper class 1920’s women. Le Viani® is a beautiful choice for anyone looking to add some vintage sophistication to their look. This striking Strawberry Gold® ring with a large central quartz and diamond halo cluster is set on Chocolate Diamond® and amethyst embellished shoulders, exuding indulgent style to make for a truly Gatsby inspired cocktail ring.
Whilst diamonds, pearls and precious stones feature in a 1920’s look right through to Cannes red-carpet style, vintage inspired watches with a contemporary twist are also a must.
