Dress up for The Great Gatsby, Village Cinema's Melbourne Thursday 30th May.

So on Thursday night I was invited down by Kerry O'brien Publicity and Twenty3 to celebrate Baz Luhrmann's long awaited film, The Great Gatsby, at the Gold Class lounge of Village cinemas in the Jam Factory. Guests were invited to dress up Gatsby style for the opening of the film, wearing glitter'n'glam and bringing the feel of visiting the movie theatre in the 20's back to life. All the cinema-goers who dressed up on the night, had the chance to win a share of $10,000 in on the spot and major prizes. Stunning model and 2011 Miss Universe Australia winner, Scherri-Lee Biggs (who is so gorgeous and lovely) joined NOVA morning show announcer Deano (Dean Thomas), at the Jam Factory evening sessions to judge the best dressed for the event. 
As you can see in the photos below, the winner was Alicia who won a special prize from Tiffanys- I mean, which girl wouldn't be happy with a beautiful blue bag!?? I'm not to sure what was inside, but I'm sure it was AMAZINGGGG…
I didn't know how many people I expected to arrive dressed up and in character of The Great Gatsby, but was pleasantly surprised with the amount of effort the girls, and even a few of the guys put in!! I really did feel transported back in time to a place of glamour and extravagance. I'm now truly excited to go and see the film and usually have quite high hopes for a Baz Luhrman film. Either way, I'm sure I'll be greatly entertained :) xx

This looks so fun! What a wonderful era for fashion - those flapper dresses are to die for.
