Does anyone know how to describe the style of Valentino, Baron de rede and Jay Gatsby. It is sort of aristocratic but slighty more sauve or flashy. I really like this look but I'm not sure how you would describe it ? X

I believe it is called the "2 girls 1 cup" look. Many examples are available on Google Images. Good luck!

This is such an odd group that I'm not even sure whether you mean Rudolph or Garavani.

I'm just guessing based on the time-frame of the book - 1922. Edwardian is 1900 to about 1915-20, but I don't really know what to call just after that period (in between the world wars).

I can't really picture what you mean. Broad shoulders with a nipped waist? White double breasted suits? A pic might help.

LOL at the "2 girls, 1 cup" comment.

Strictly, 1901-10. Not at all bad wikipedia article - Sator, have you been at it again?

Not really, even though King E died in 1910, social historians commonly refer to the years from 1910 until the outbreak of WWI as part of the "Edwardian Era."
