MYD Glams Up A Great Gatsby Photoshoot

It’s 2013, but it is feeling more like the 1920! With a new film releasing this year based off of the classic novel written in the 20s, Gatsby fever is sweeping the nation. There is nostalgia in the old, classic details of the 20s that are embodied in this beautiful photo shoot orchestrated by Southern Bride and Groom. The shoot took place at Second Empire Restaurant and Tavern and turned out beautifully – we loved being a part of this shoot!

There were many talented vendors for this photo shoot including gowns from Tre Bella Bridal, photos by Renee Sprink Photography, flowers from Tre Bella Flowers, Your Special Day Weddings & Special Events and accessories from Bel Canto Designs. (For full list, see the green box in photo 2).

This was an amazing shoot to be a part of. Any chance to hop out of our decade and into another one is a creative challenge that we love. We love the red lips, bold eyes and incorporating beautiful hair pieces into the hairstyles.

We’re inspired to dress this glam look down for everyday wear. An easy way to do that is to wear your hair down instead of in an updo. This will make the look more casual, while still allowing a bold hair piece.

Charlize Theron dons a very 20s look on the red carpet. This is a more casual look due to the subdued lips. There is a subtle brown/gold smokey eye, but this look isn’t as bold. This is a perfect look for jeans and a tshirt or a skirt and a blazer – for a daytime look, refrain from statement earrings along with a hair piece, it may look too dressy. 

Diane Kruger pulls off her 20s hair and makeup flawlessly. Her hair is pulled into a low bun with two beautiful hair pieces. To keep it from looking overdone, there is no additional jewellery and the lips are a more neutral pink. For makeup, her smokey eyes steal the show, but her professionally highlighted face makes her skin look dewy and fresh.
