The "Roaring 1920s" Fever // Fashion Trends

Just 8 years before stepping foot on the 2020s, in the middle of a global huge financial crisis, a madness for the 1920s, also known as the "roaring twenties" and "golden twenties", is growing fast.

Movies
With films like Woody Allen's "Midnight in Paris" (2011), Michel Hazanavicius's the "Artist" (2011) and the upcoming and most anticipated remake of Baz Luhrmann's "The Great Gatsby" (set to be released by Christmas of 2012...), the movie industry should obviously be credited as the "trendsetter". See below some representative snap-shots from the three movies (unfortunately no poster yet for "The Great Gatsby"):










Fashion
Of course, the fashion designers could not ignore this. Gucci's Spring-Summer 2012 and Oscar de la Renta's Pre-Fall 2012 collections are basically a revival of this era's fashion with a modern touch.

Beauty
Last to say (for now!), hair styling has already been adopted by several actresses for their red carpet appearances.
