'The Great Gatsby' girls Carey Mulligan and Isla Fisher shine at pre-premiere party

01 MAY 2013

The Great Gatsby is tipped to be one of the most glamorous films of the year, and its leading ladies Carey Mulligan and Isla Fisher pulled out all the stops at a pre-premiere bash on Tuesday night.

Carey, who plays Daisy Buchanan in the film, looked flawless in an embroidered black Prada dress, natural make up and a sleek up'do.

By her side was fellow Gatsby girl Isla, who looked radiant in a pink babydoll dress. Sacha Baron Cohen's wife gives a star turn as Myrtle Wilson in the highly-anticipated film.

Both women were on top form at the Prada party thrown to warm up audiences ahead of The Great Gatsby premiere this week.

Cult director Baz Luhrmann has reinvented F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic tale of romance and riches in the 'Roaring Twenties', and the multi-million pound production is set to open the Cannes Film Festival later this month.

The movie also stars former Spiderman actor Tobey Maguire as Nick Carraway and screen veteran Leonardo DiCaprio as the debonair Jay Gatsby.

Tobey attended the party with wife Jennifer Meyer while Leonardo was apparently saving his energy for the film's grand unveiling.

His leading lady Carey, married to Mumford & Sons rocker Marcus Mumford, told Harper's Bazaar how much she enjoyed working the Romeo + Juliet actor.

"When I did the audition with Leo in New York, I walked away grinning," she said. "Just the idea that if I never got any further, I had just spent an hour and a half acting with Leonardo DiCaprio."

A host of stars from the worlds of music and fashion attended The Great Gatsby's Prada party. British singer Florence Welch looked stylish in a trouser suit and trilby.

Fellow songstress Katy Perry opted for a more feminine look in a patterned mauve dress, and fashionista Alexa Chung kept it simple in a little black dress with embellished detail.
