The Great Gatsby: Get the Look

Have you seen the Great Gatsby yet? How can we befriend Daisy Buchanan so we can go shopping in her 1920s wardrobe? From headpieces to t-bar shoes and everything in between (we're looking at you, fur stoles and mid-length dresses), we're in awe of Miuiccia Prada's stunning creations for the film. Below, the inspiration and where to find the movie's flapper fashions for your own closet (even if you don't have Carrie Mulligan's precious haircut!).  

Ralph Lauren's Spring 2012 collection was inspired by 1920s Great Gatsby silos.  The turn of the century pants suits and flapper dresses received roaring reviews, and the show was dubbed "the best-dressed garden party never had".  
In that dress, no wonder he looks at her that way!
Evoke 20s glam in this Aidan Mattox Sequined Starburst Gown from Saks Fifth Avenue
Daisy's headpiece turned ours, and with headpieces up-trending, we want one too!
If money is no object, Tiffany is selling the real deal and other Jazz Age accessories.  The Great Gatsby Collection Headpiece retails for $200,000 at Tiffany & Co
To get the same look at a fraction of the price, BHLDN (Anthro's bridal line) sells vintage-inspired headpieces like this Coppice Headband for $195. In our book, you definitely don't need to be a bride to wear it. Available at BHLDN.  
Tell us you're not in awe! 
Just add jewels to this Eliza J Faux Fur Stole, $78, and you're all set.
Available at Nordstrom.  
Lady-like perfection.
Inspired by Daisy's topper, this Scattered Pearl Capelet, $150, looks so feminine and delicate.  (We want one for everyday occasions!)  Available at BHLDN.    
It's all about the t-strap heels (and how cute is the heel on this one?). "Cool as a Cucumber" Pump, $69.95, available at Nordstrom.  
Liz just wants this dress!!
This Gucci Embroidered number is a close second, we suppose.
Available at Saks Fifth Avenue
1920s head wraps are equally chic almost 100 years later!  
Channel Daisy with this Yarnz Cashmere Neo Lace Scarf wrapped around your head.  Available at Saks
Just precious.  (We want this dress too!)
Jill Stuart's Sophia Dress has the same lady-like appeal.  Available at Shopbop.  
As a less expensive alternative, we also adore the sweet, sheer neckline on Aqua's Metallic Lace Top Dress, $228.  Available at Bloomies.
