Glorious Gatsby ...

With each advertisement for the cinematic remake of 'The Great Gatsby,' I find myself drooling over the luxe evening wear of the early 20th century.

It seems I'm not the only one inspired by the elaborate beadwork and sheer glamour.

Today's designers are offering a modern spin on these vintage looks. Don't you appreciate ladies looking like ladies again? Yes, me too! Wonder how much influence Downton Abbey may have on these designers.

Beauty, sex appeal, romance. What's not to love? Okay, I'd have to lose half my body weight to wear most of these, but such incentive to do so.
