About a week before the rest of us mortals can see it, The Great Gatsby had its world premiere last night and it was one of those red carpet events that was especially interesting because of the huge role fashion plays in the film. Would people come channeling the ’20s or decked out in diamonds? Surprisingly, most of the looks were subdued and tasteful, and shied away from being too on-the-nose. Let’s take a look:
Lovely suit, but baby-faced Leo beats goatee Leo any day.
That dress is a little casual for the event, but those shoes are damn covetable. Also, Tobey looks nice.
That color/silhouette is perfect for Carey, but the makeup makes her look a little washed out and the updo could benefit from more volume. She’s Daisy after all; she needs to be loud and proud, and she’s only about 70% there with this look.
In terms of looking fit for a Great Gatsby premiere without looking too much like Jay Gatsby, Baz definitely nailed it best with this suit and its detailing. Catherine is kind of like Helena Bonham Carter or Jinkx Monsoon — on anyone else, I’d mock that outfit, but she just looks so happy and pretty in all that beading and those cray cray shoes that she looks killer (also, totally makes sense that they’d be together — they both love their sparkles!)
I don’t know much about Joel Edgerton, other than he is way hotter in real life than the shlubby cheated-on husband he plays in the movie. Who knew a beard and a well-tailored suit could make such a difference?
The top half is a little busy, but the sheer lace skirt is just the right balance between delicate and sexy as hell. Also, Isla is clearly descended from mermaids because her hair always looks that maddeningly perfect.
I didn’t like it at all at first, but I do love me some Flo, and the individual pieces (that bag! that ascot! that detailing of the collar!) are all winners, and the longer I look at it, in all its matchy-matchy, rhinestoney glory, the more it almost makes sense in some weird way but I don’t know! She’s also just really cool and her song in the movie kicks ass so…undecided.
Be sure to catch the movie in theaters next Friday!
