Gatsby, what Gatsby?…

…Carey Mulligan’s character, Daisy Buchanan, asks softly in the newest trailer for the awaited “Great Gatsby” movie, starring household names such as Leonardo Dicaprio, Tobey Maguire or Joel Edgerton. Yet, I won’t talk about the movie, but the enchanting style inspired by the jazz era and culture. We have already seen it used by Gucci in their spring 2012 art deco inspired collection, and now Rodarte delights us with wonderful hairstyles for the Fall 2012 collection. Lovely barrettes lighten the heavy fall looks. If you want to recreate this feminine hairstyle you should check out this post on fashioning.com on how to do it yourself: fashionising.com

You can check out more backstage photos here: rafinery29.com or the entire collection on vogue.com .

Also, enjoy these pictures by photographer David Vasiljevic, for the May issue of Elle France. With the movie coming out this year, I expect to see more and more editorials of this kind.

A Fashion Affair: Duran Duran – Girl Panic! Official Music Video

The band’s newest video entitled “Girl Panic!” is a spectacular opulent exhibition of fashion elements. From lace dresses, fur coats and feather skirts to glittery shoes, sequined trousers and leather tops, the video is filled up with luxurious pieces. And who else could have presented them better other than the 80’s models, the very famous Naomi Campbell, Helena Christensen, Eva Herzigova and Cindy Crawford. The beautiful four models are presented living a glamorous and hectic life, full of events, parties along their friends, champagne and designer-label clothes including Dolce & Gabbana, Balmain and Louis Vuitton. In fact, this presentation is the band’s itself.

Naomi Campbell plays lead singer Simon Le Bon, Cindy Crawford plays bassist John Taylor, Eva Herzigova is keyboardist Nick Rhodes, Helena Christensen is drummer Roger Taylor, while Yasmine Le Bon takes a turn as their unnamed guitarist. The real members of Duran Duran appear as supporting staff: bellhops, waitstaff, chauffeurs and press members.

Spicing up the video fashion-wise once again, Domenico Dolce & Stefano Gabbana are spotted in it as well, helping out the beautiful models to get dressed in glamorous Dolce & Gabbana outfits for a photoshoot done by the designers themselves. The result, a stylish magazine cover for Harper’s Bazaar.

These are just a couple of screen shots that I have selected from this video. Enjoy!
