Get the 1920’s inspired celebrity and catwalk style with GHD - Guest post by GHD

In recent years it seems that every decade has had a fashion makeover from the 1940s to 1980s, but if there is a decade that is having a fashion moment now, it is the 1920s.

Baz Luhrmann is currently filming a remake of the 1920s set, The Great Gatsby -  and with programmes such as Broadwalk Empire taking television by storm, the 1920s is incredibly popular right now.

Plus if you need proof that the era is 'oh so chic' you only need to look at the weddings of Kate Moss and Lily Allen.

Both women had more than a nod to the 20s for the look on their big days.

Lily opted for a lace Karl Largerfeld dress with a very 20s style lace cap, and if there is one fashion house that screams 20s style it has to be Chanel.

Super model Kate had an all out Great Gatsby look for her big day: like Lily she had a lace 20s style veil while her John Galliano designed dress wouldn't look out of place on the set of the new Baz Luhrmann film.

What's more, it is not just the small and big screen that is taking inspiration from the roaring 20s, the autumn/winter 2011-12 and spring/summer 2012 catwalks were also full of the 20s looks.

Designers like Ralph Lauren and Holly Fulton showcased looks with more than a little nod to the 20s in their autumn/winter collections. In spring/summer there were a number of looks that could have come straight from the jazz age.

At Gucci the models were sent down wearing beaded black and gold flapper dresses, while Ralph Lauren the models were seen sporting wearing cloche hats and at Sonia Rykiel there were a number of preppy sportswear looks.

However, it is not just clothes that are getting all 1920s, hair and beauty is also taking on the trend, and one easy way to get a chic 20s look is with the GHD limited edition Scarlet styler.

The gorgeous styler was used to create a number of 1920s style looks for GHD babe Katy Perry and its sexy red plates even look the part for the era.

You can check out the styler on the official ghd website at or in your local ghd approved salon.

What is your decade of inspiration for hair or beauty?  Have you tried ghd products?

I really love the old school glamour of the 40's and 50's, but sadly that type of look really doesn't suit me! I definitely want to try out this GHD though!
