20th Century Fashion

I love anything from the 20th century. The fashion changes were huge. People went from wearing floor length dresses to flapper, from flapper to the structured style of the 40s. There were hippies, punks, rockers – such an awesome array of people and styles and a huge amount of social change.

I was looking at the vogue website the other day and I saw Carey Mulligan in a Gatsby themed shoot.

I love this dress she is wearing.  The beading is exquisite.

This other dress she is wearing is beautiful too. I love the feathers at the bottom of the dress.  I also love the shoes.

The last dress kind of reminded me of Ginger Roger’s feather dress in Top Hat.  My future wedding dress right there.
