As y’all know, I am [im]patiently awaiting the release of Baz Luhrman’s The Great Gatsby. We’ve watched the trailers, checked out the amazing character posters, and learned about the geniuses (like Jay-Z) behind the movie’s score. Now we get to check out a few really sweet costume sketches from Miuccia Prada herself. The designer released these to British Vogue, and it’s all just one more reason to get excited about the adaptation. Click inside for more!
Paste Magazine has the deets:
World-renowned designer Miuccia Prada recently providedBritish Vogue with four sketches of her work with costume designer Catherine Martin for Baz Luhrmann’s upcoming film adaptation of The Great Gatsby.
The sketches illustrate the aristocratic 1920s style with inspirations from Prada’s 2011/2012 collections.
“Baz and Miuccia have always connected on their shared fascination with finding modern ways of releasing classic and historical references from the shackles of the past,” Martin told Vogue. “This connection is central to our relationship with Miuccia Prada on The Great Gatsby, and has connected our vision with hers. In the same way Nick Carraway reflects on a world that he is within and without, we have tried to create an environment that the audience will be subconsciously familiar with, yet separated from.”
Starring as female lead Daisy Buchanan, Carey Mulligan will showcase Prada and Martin’s stunning wardrobe. The attire of male leads Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Macguire, who play Jay Gatsby and Nick Carraway respectively, was designed by Brooks Brothers.
And here are the sketches:
If you’re as excited as I am over this film, these sketches are pretty exciting, lol! I cannot wait to see Carey Mulligan rocking the ish out of these. She really is a perfect Daisy, IMO. Plus, all that SAG Awards fashion has me in, like, dress fever. I love these sketches! And I suddenly really, really wanna go back to prom… lol.
The Great Gatsby hits theaters on May 10.0
