Street Style: The Chicest Lawn Party Ever Gets A Gatsby Twist

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.
