Tiffany & Co. Throws ‘Great Gatsby’-Themed Ball With Carey Mulligan, Gwyneth Paltrow

Celebrating the legendary jeweler’s new collection of 1920s-inspired jewelry, Tiffany and Co.’s Blue Book Ball was Great Gatsby-themed, featuring cast and crew from the upcoming Baz Luhrman film, acrobats decked out in feathers and a slew of sparkling starlets. Let’s take a look at these beauties in blue:

Okay, so it’s a very, very dark blue, and she’s kept the jewels to a bare minimum, looking more Jay than Daisy, but she’s probably a little tired of wearing sequin headbands and pearls-on-diamonds-on-sapphires-on-rubies. Her cape looks sharp as hell, and her t-straps give the look just the right dose of vintage.

Well, if it isn’t the man of the hour! Baz Luhrmann looks far more toned-down than one would expect after the overwhelming visuals of his movies. (The shoes deviate just enough from the ordinary without drawing too much focus, though.) His costume-designer wife, Catherine Martin,  stayed true to her trade and went all out with a billowy gown, fur shrug, and a few touches of gold in her brooch and clutch.

There is no one more darling than Michelle Williams. I mean, look at her angled pixie cut, boxy gown and megawatt smile. Perfection.

We know SJP is all about the accessories, but I’d rather see the detailing on that gown (a fantastic color on her, by the way) than her generic blazer any day. Her main necklace is stunning, but that second one is bugging the hell out of me. Mainly because I don’t understand how (or why) it’s seemingly glued to her collarbone.

It’s alright. The dress is a good color on her and it’s an interesting cut, but it needs something else. More eye-catching hair or statement-y jewelry perhaps—that that semi-obscured butterfly pin isn’t doing it.
