Catherine Martin and Miuccia Prada ‘The Great Gatsby’ Dresses Opening Exhibit

Catherine Martin and Miuccia Prada ‘The Great Gatsby’ Dresses Opening Exhibit

There were many more celebs who joined Carey Mulligan and Katy Perry for the special exhibition of selected costumes designed by Miuccia Prada and costume designer Catherine Martin for Baz Luhrmann’s upcoming film adaptation of ‘The Great Gatsby’ in New York City yesterday evening.

Alexa Chung: Fresh off the plane from her Vogue Festival London trip, the jet-setting TV presenter wore a black Miu Miu crewneck tunic featuring some gold detailing. Black loafers and a black clutch accessorized her outfit, with barely there makeup completing her effortless look.

Maggie Gyllenhaal: The indie actress stands out here wearing a bright-white Prada dress with ruffled details on the bodice and cuffs. Maggie’s choices are often hit or miss. This for me is a hit, although I’m not a huge fan of the platform sandals.

Florence Welch: Is it me, or does Florence’s Prada look have a touch of Saint Laurent about it? Maybe it’s the suit-and-hat combo which has now become synonymous with the brand. As always this is a stellar chic look from the British singer.

    I like Alexa and Florence look.

    Maggie Gyllenhaal looks great. I would have preferred shorter earrings, but I like her outfit very much.

      Agreed.

    I like all of them, although I find Maggie particularly refreshing between all this black.

    My favorite here is Maggie. I like Alexa’s look minus the shoes. I like Florence’s look minus the hat.

    I would really like Maggie’s look had she belted it. She’s still the best here but it’s edging on nightgown.

    Not liking anyone much, but Maggie does stand out and is easily the best of the 3 imo – I like her look minus the shoes and earrings.
    The other 2 look pretty awful imo.

    I prefer Maggie’s look over the other two but I will never understand the appeal of Alexa Chung, I fail to understand why she’s so feted in fashion circles.

    I don’t know what it is about Maggie Gyllenhaal, but even if I don’t love what she’s wearing, she makes me appreciate it anyway. She knows how to express herself through her clothes so well, that she rarely goes wrong. So she often choses an ensemble and I’ll think, “I wouldn’t normally go for this, but on her, it works”.

    I agree about the platform soles but I think Maggie still looks pretty fabulous here. One of my favorite look from her since her 2010 Dries Van Noten painted Oscars dress.

    As she often does, Alexa Chung has brought done her look with an ugly shoe choice. Perhaps it is perceived as”edgy”, but it is so repetitive and predictable that it’s boring. Florence Welch looks good, but Maggie Gyllenhaal looks feminine and elegant. She is the best of the three.

    Maggie Gyllenhaal looks great.
    if only her make up artists would give her eyebrows more definition she’d look flawless

    Florence’s suit is so true to her style and persona! I love it! And yes, there’s def a Saint Laurent vibe.
