Given the hype surrounding Baz Lurhmann‘s upcoming The Great Gatsby (being released on May 10, 2013), you’ve no doubt seen some of the divine costumes and lavish sets. For myself, I can’t stop watching either of the two trailers, and my accessories have become increasingly sparkly of late…
“In his blue gardens men and girls came and went like moths among the whisperings and the champagne and the stars.”
There are so many things about this film that excite me, but chief among them is the costumes. Lurhmann’s wife and co-producer, designer Catherine Martin teamed up with Miuccia Prada to revisit some forty Prada and Miu Miu frocks for the film.
You can check out the film costume sketches they released, above, but the live version is so much more glittery. Carey Mulligan as Daisy Buchanan looks amazing, all the time, and Leonardo DiCaprio’s pink suit is just as perfect and ridiculous as I imagined.
Here, I’ve collected all of my favourite images from the upcoming film, plus a few snaps of the book I couldn’t help but throw in. The Great Gatsby is my Favourite Novel Of All Time, after all.
