Art deco

The spring 2012 collections haven't hit stores yet, but the 1920s trend evident when they were shown on the runways last fall is already making an impact on the red carpet. Florence Welch and Diane Kruger have both worn black-and-gold fringed dresses from Gucci's Art Deco-themed spring collection on red carpets in recent weeks. And now that "The Artist," set in 1927 Hollywood, is a front-runner at the awards shows, we're likely to see more flappers and fringe as the red carpet season heats up. Also, in December Baz Luhrmann's take on "The Great Gatsby," set in the Jazz Age, is slated to hit movie theaters with Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan in the title roles, and with costumes designed by Luhrmann's wife, Catherine Martin, who wowed us with her stylish work on "Australia" and "Moulin Rouge."
