The Great Gatsby…Fashion

I went to see The Great Gatsby last week and thoroughly enjoyed it – everything from the vivacious colours and beautiful storyline to the incredible acting and contemporary soundtrack.

However, what I loved most about the film was the impeccable attention to detail regarding the fashion.
