Old Hollywood Glamour is roaring once again and is the hot new fashion trend on the runways and Hollywood. Looks inspired by the '20's and '30's have been seen in a number of SS12 collections, including the most recent collection from Ralph Lauren who is quite familiar with this romantic era. Vogue.com reported that forty-eight years ago, Ralph Lauren costumed the 1974 film, The Great Gatsby, staring Robert Redford and Mia Farrow. The film was based on the book, which was released in 1925 and set in Long Island's North Shore from Spring to Autumn of 1922.
The SS12 Ralph Lauren RTW collection includes a variety of lean, long, shimmering gowns, ruffled georgette blouses, charmeuse wide pants, masculine double-breasted jackets and feathered and beaded slips.
