The Icon: Carey Mulligan in The Great Gatsby

There's no telling what I would do to be Carey Mulligan at this very second.

So, Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby... Well, one thing is for sure, and that is that it was no Moulin Rouge!

The film was alright, I suppose. A little messy, a little boring and definitely too long, but it was alright. Other than the gorgeousness that is Leonardo DiCaprio, the costumes really made the film worth watching.

Everyone looked pretty much incredible with their sparkly dresses, feather boas, fantastic pearls and to-die-for headbands. Prada did us proud.

My favourite fashion moment was, without a doubt, the party scene. There was so much to look at, my brain could not even cope with it. The women of the '20s really knew what they were doing. 

Also, special credit should be awarded to Isla Fisher for being fabulous, and Gemma Ward for managing to make another random cameo. Nothing better than seeing an ex-model pop up on screen when you least expect her!
