#PROM2013 | A Gatsby Inspired Prom Outfit..
As I said in my previous post, the first installation of my Prom series shall be inspired an ultra-glamorous movie filled with Hollywood stars….. The Great Gatsby!
I couldn’t think of a better film to draw inspiration from. For me Gatsby is a must-see for 2 reasons; it’s one of my favourite books and Miuccia Prada made the costumes worn by Daisy Buchanan (Carey Mulligan), each one more lavish than the next! and I’m talking crystal beaded gowns, exotic feathers and Tiffany’s pearl and diamond jewels sprinkled on top! Decadent, glamorous and wonderfully elegant, Gatsby is the best source of wardrobe inspiration for Prom.. and it kinda makes me wish I had one to go to this year! :-/ LOL
DRESS - “Flapper” dresses which were the main garment of choice in the 20s, are straight, loose and drops the waistline to the hips, one thing I love about Flapper dresses is the way they move whilst dancing which I guess is the point. The flapper dresses are particularly more flattering on a “boyish” figure so if you’re planning to show your curves at Prom, this look isn’t for you I’m afraid!
ACCESSORIES - Accessories consist a lot of Art Deco pieces including many layers of pearls and other beaded necklaces, the perfect excuse to do a little thrifting!
HAIR & MAKE-UP - I really liked this hair tutorial for a modern, 20s look that can easily be used for any special occasion. This make-up tutorial really is true to the 1920s era, however if this is going a little too far I found a tutorial for a much more softer look here.
Thank you for reading my first post of “#PROM2013” and I really hoped this helped a few of you! Stay tuned for more Prom posts coming soon.
