I’m not sure if any of you are as excited as I am about the May release of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby directed by Baz Luhrmann, but here’s another reason to be excited! The anticipated film adaption includes ensembles by costume designer Catherine Martin and Miuccia Prada.
I am dying to know what the star-packed cast, including Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan, will be wearing. I can already picture the 20s-inspired glitz and glam looks complete with flapper dresses and plenty of sequins.
I was thrilled to find out that the amazing Miuccia Prada will be collaborating with Catherine Martin for the cast’s wardrobe. Prada sent out a teaser for some of the looks earlier this week in sketch form. From the looks of it, Prada will not disappoint. The looks were definitely glamourous. One of my favorites was a green luxe gown with plenty of sparkle and a modern hem.
This is not the first time Prada collaborated with director Baz Luhrmann and Martin. The group worked together on the set of 1966′s Romeo + Juliet, where Prada deigned a suit worn by Leonardo DiCaprio. The team has the ability to see the past through a fashionably modern eye and I think The Great Gatsby will follow suit.
Is there any chance that the flapper dresses and glam of the 20s will make a comeback? I think a girl can never go wrong with a little shine at a party. What do you think?prada, The Great Gatsby
