Dress Du Jour: Isla Fisher at the 'Gatsby' Premiere

The Aussie actress chose an interesting floral Dolce & Gabbana to her latest film's world premiere.

The Dress: A floral Dolce & Gabbana full-length gown with sheer, quarter-length sleeves and a crocheted skirt.  

The Wearer: Sprite redheaded Aussie Isla Fisher. 

The Event: The world premiere of Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby on Thursday night in New York — aka one of the most-anticipated events of the year. 

The Reason We Dig: We will admit that this dress isn't traditionally pretty. It's a bit schizophrenic even, with a navy bodice, contrasting florals and a black woven skirt. But the dress makes Fisher, who plays Myrtle Wilson in the film, look like a modern-day free spirit (her romantic, side-wave hair and fresh, bright lipstick help the cause, too). Hate the dress or love it, Fisher's overall look works well. Not to mention that it's a nice departure from the 1920s-infused looks we've seen almost ad nauseam this Gatsby season. The movie might not yet be released, but it might be time to move on to the next decade as far as party dresses are concerned. And Fisher did just that with perfect aplomb.
