Retro style and fashion have never actually become outdated. Though we call it vintage and retro, they are in fact very popular with ladies all around the world. So, not just regular women, but A-list Hollywood and Bollywood celebs too are going all the way to look vintage. And they look timeless.
A lot of movies in our generation too have been inspired by retro fashion. In Hollywood as well as in Bollywood, there are retro hairstyles used in movies. In this article, we will talk about all those Hollywood and Bollywood movies which have been inspired by retro and vintage fashion. Let’s start with Hollywood:
Great Gatsby: Pure Baz
Great Gatsby was all about opulence, glamour and lots of fringes. Great Gatsby is pure fashion and most of the characters from the movie have worn glamourous and retro vintage hairstyles.
For your Great Gatsby look, your attire is all about beautiful silks, chiffon and laces! The idea is to choose a fabric that will drape effortlessly around your body. For accessories choose dresses which have gloves and anything with beads in them. Brownie points if you can choose fans or shell motifs. In Daisy’s look in Great Gatsby, retro hairstyles were mostly with the help of head pieces. In most of her looks, she kept her hair slicked back with bobby pins and clips. The more slicked back it is, the more glamourous!
