After so many months of waiting and hoping and aching for “The Great Gatsby” to be released at last, we had entered a state of impatient longing not entirely unlike that of the titular character…but with a much happier outcome, fortunately, as the film finally premiered last night in New York City, and it was lovely! (Also, nobody was cheated on, run over or shot, which is always nice.)
The premiere was a major party attended by all the film’s stars and then some—all sporting decidedly modern looks in comparison to the jazz-age fashions featured onscreen.
Nina Dobrev, who isn’t in the movie, wore the most deco getup of the night with a black-and-gold sheath dress that mirrored the metalwork design featured in all of the “Gatsby” promotional materials; Carey Mulligan was stunning in a red strapless dress and sleek hair; and Isla Fisher covered up in a floral-print, three-quarter sleeved dress that faded to (semi-sheer) black as it reached her feet.
And Tobey Maguire and Leonardo DiCaprio must have mutually agreed to wear blue; both men were dapper in slim navy suits and skinny ties.
