Went to The Plaza Hotel to see the The Great Gatsby costumes. The costumes were used in the scenes taking place at The Plaza. There were also a few props on display.

Drecoll | c. 1926
What I imagine Jordan Baker wearing.
The sleeveless design and low, scooped neck would have allowed the wearer to remain cool during even the most energetic dances of the 1920s. And as she danced, the drifting tunic top and the central drapery of the skirt would have flowed with her.
Lanvin | c. 1923
This Lanvin dress is very indicative of 1920s fashionable dress. Its intricate embroidery is unique to France while the spiral motif is a Lanvin signature.
