Hamish Bowles, International Editor at Large at Vogue, celebrated his 50th birthday this weekend with a Great Gatsby themed dinner in Southampton.

This vintage-inspired dinner tent was perfectly in keeping with the Gatsby themed bash.

Two of fashion's biggest stars, Lauren Santo Domingo who is a contributing editor for Vogue and co-founder of online fashion retailer Moda Operandi and fashion writer Derek Blasberg, donned glam 1920s attire for the event.

Model turned fashion editor Giovanna Battaglia looked 1920s perfect in a green velvet cape with the added indulgence of a lot of accessories. After all a girl can never wear too many diamonds, and the feather headpiece is the ultimate accessory for any Gatsby-esque soiree.
