Fun fact: Tiffany & Co.'s Blue Book is actually the oldest mail order catalog in the United States, having launched as a showcase for the New York jeweler's most jaw-dropping pieces back in 1845. Today the robin's egg-hued book is a collector's piece — the 2013 edition of which was celebrated Thursday night with a grand, 1920s-infused black tie ball at Rockefeller Center in New York. Complete with a velvet-adorned decor, a 10-piece jazz band and enough Moet & Chandon bubbly to have kept prohibition popping for another ten years, Sarah Jessica Parker and Gwyneth Paltrow were among notable guests who wore more ice than the arctic.
Also on hand was actress Carey Mulligan along with her Gatsby director Baz Luhrmann and his wife Catherine Martin, who designed the sets and costumes in the highly anticipated upcoming film — and collaborated on the Tiffany & Co. baubles seen on screen. While most revelers didn't go full-out flapper for the affair, old school-infused, modern glamour was ever-present via long, floor-length stunners that truly appeared fit for a black tie Manhattan affair (minus English socialite Poppy Delevigne, who wore a short, colorful sundress and looked like she was going to an uppity hot dog cookout). Jay Gatsby would have been proud.
