The Great Gatsby Red Carpet Was the Bee's Knees

Ladies and gentleman! Boys and girls! It was clear skies last night as the biggest stars in Hollywood came out to celebrate the Big Apple premiere of The Great Gatsby.

What of the glad rags?

Copacetic! Some stars embraced the Jazz Age in a very cool and subtle way. Nina Dobrev's art deco mini is the cat's meow; pair Mamie Gummer's flowing white dress with a cloche and she'd be ready for a summer drive in Gatsby's Rolls-Royce; Emeli Sandé wouldn't look out of place at the most buzzed about '20s hot spots.

Martha Stewart is wearing gold leggings paired with a pirate shirt (a.k.a my blogging outfit); Jennifer Morrison's cream lace frock probably looks beautiful and delicate in person, but comes out looking a little flat and (when paired with the shoes and blonde hair) monochrome on camera; always exciting to see marabou on the carpet, but it doesn't quite fit with Jenna Lyons' trousers.

Keeping their coats on: Anjelica Huston will wear whatever she pleases and you will like it, dammit; Monika Chiang lives on the fringe with some crazy-ass shoes; the metallic on Vanity Fair's Amy Fine Collins' dress is a little overboard, but, boy, do I want that coat.

Almost every photo of André Leon Talley had him mostly cropped out, but here he stands victorious with Anna Wintour; Carey Lowell's look is overall meh, but check out the shoes at the end of those getaway sticks; Vogue Italia's Franca Sozzani brought a sweater in case the theater is cold.

Best of the night: Isla Fisher with beautiful hair, beautiful makeup and a dress that shouldn't work, but somehow does — perfectly. Hard to believe that she was cast as the less-than-flatteringly described Myrtle Wilson, but there you have it.
