The Great Gatsby.

The 1920s, sometimes referred to as The Roaring Twenties or The Jazz Age, was a time of great economic prosperity following World War I and the Spanish Flu in 1910. It was the time when the United States was brought onto the world stage as the economic power we know today. By this time, people were making money everywhere - there were jobs for everyone, stocks were plummeting and people had money to spend.

Other than these events, the 1920s was also a time when women won their right to vote. This event of women's liberalization was the beginning of their empowerment which led to dressing like men, popular. Prior to this, women were succumbed to only wearing Victorian style corsets but in the 1920s, youth, vice and frivolity were celebrated. This explains the shorter hairdos and straighter cut clothing. And of course,  the flapper  - a cigarette smoking, boozing, young look that did not emphasize women's curves but instead chose to look like a thin, prepubescent girl while at the same time being casually sexual!

What are your thoughts on the 1920s and The Great Gatsby?

It sends me into flutters of excitement and an image of beauty and glamour when I think of the 1920s.
What era could be more beautiful than the pearl and diamond embellished wear and accessories adorned by girls of that time? :)

My Friday night was filled with just that - old school 1920's glamour - feathers, beautiful fringing and beads!

Thanks to Michelle/Michiekins of WWW.MICHIEKINS.COM, I scored an invite to join in the celebration of Moët & Chandon being the official sponsor of The Great Gatsby.

Moët & Chandon has always been synonymous with the glamour and grandeur of cinema.  If you've seen the movie, you'll notice that it was all they drank :)
The event was aptly taglined, "The Champagne of Success & Glamour Since 1743, as seen in The Great Gatsby" .

The event took place in Phuture, Zouk Club KL. It was nothing short of glitz and glamour, what with beautiful girls dressed in pretty, sparkly dresses with matching feathers adorning the crown of their heads. Everyone was popping Moët & Chandon everywhere I looked while the DJs spun music from the official movie soundtrack.

One of the highlights of the night for me was the fashion show. It was a show of vintage 1920s clothing. The models paraded around the room dressed in original vintage clothing and I felt like I had been transported back into time!

After that, it was free flow of Moët and we had the time of our lives!
Good times!

I loved The Great Gatsby and most of all, I thoroughly enjoyed the 1920s themed Moët & Chandon party! Can't wait for the next one!
