Fashion of the Boardwalk Empire

The new season of HBO's Boardwalk Empire has finally started.  Whether or not you like the show, you have to admire the wonderful 1920s styling.  Gretchen Mol's character Gillian Darmody stole the spotlight with her sparkling sequined New Year's Eve dress pictured below.

The neckline and straight silhouette of her dress were both very popular in the 1920s.  Actress Alice Joyce is pictured in a similar style below in 1926.

We have already seen the influences of the 1920s on the fashion runway.  With the popularity of HBO's Boardwalk Empire and the buzz surrounding the upcoming Great Gatsby movie we are bound to see more fashion inspired by that roaring decade in the coming months.  

I'm looking forward to seeing more of the 1920s on the TV screen and in the fashion magazines.  Are you with me?
