    Is it just us, or were the Roaring '20s simply the best decade of all time? Everything just seemed more glamourous back then — just think about the intricate dresses, the old-school town cars, and the speakeasies that were actually speakeasies — we're pretty sure it was impossible to not ooze fabulousness. And, judging by the turnout for the 6th Annual Jazz Age Lawn Party, New Yorkers are in agreement. The so-chic fete, held every year on the grounds of historic (and now hip-storic) Governor's Island, celebrated the golden age with live music and, of course, flowing cocktails.

    We joined the party to snap some pics of the bash's most creative attendees — from the flapper dresses to the antique hair pins and bowler hats, the crowd's get-ups seemed like clips right out of The Great Gatsby trailer.

    Click through to "ooh" and "aah" at all the Daisy and Gatsby lookalikes, and start planning your ensemble for round two in August.
