IMG_9140IMG_9133New York–Gatsby Fever was alive and well at the 9th Annual Jazz Age Lawn Party, held this past weekend on Governors Island.

While just a short ferry ride away from downtown Manhattan, the annual costume event seemed a million miles away, not to mention almost 100 years back in time.

While Michael Arenella and His Dreamland Orchestra played Big Band music and revelers showed off their Charleston dance moves, guests showed off their best 20s fashions, ranging from long strands of knotted pearls to fringed flapper dresses to glamorous headbands.

Stephanie Farrell and Leyla Bahmanyar–former Accessories magazine interns and current fashion girls-about-town–grabbed their fellas and some other friends and hit the lawn party in full flapper regalia. the other retro must? St. Germain cocktails, of course!
