Moviegoers and book readers are very much excited about the movie adaptation of the classic novel The Great Gatsby. They are excited about Leonardo Dicaprio and Tobey Maguire chemistry. They are excited to see if the movie adaptation will do to F. Scott Fitzgerald’s 1925 novel justice. These are just a few of the many things that movie buffs anticipate about the film. But for fashionistas, they don’t care about any of the technical elements of The Great Gatsby. Their focus is more on the costumes that the movie’s characters will parade.
As you can notice, fashion trends these days are mostly inspired by old styles. Many celebrities sport those high-waist dresses, fedoras, and hairstyles that we used to see only in black and white photos. These are things that fashion enthusiasts are keeping an eye on the film.
Fashion buffs have all the reasons to watch The Great Gatsby as most of its costumes are designed by Italian fashion designer Miuccia Prada. The multi-awarded designer was hired by film director Baz Luhrmann’s wife, Catherine Martin, because she “challenges ideas of beauty.” Among the artists she dressed for the film are Carey Mulligan and Aussie actress Isla Fisher.
These actresses featured mostly dropped waists, pleats, panels of sequins and intricate beading. If you can’t wait to see the dresses and jewelries from The Great Gratsby, open YouTube on your smartphone that you usually use for FoxyBingo games. Watch the trailer and see for yourself why the movie is worth the wait.
Once The Great Gatsby starts conquering theaters, that is the time that movie fashion season starts. Remember the time when people tried to look like Edward Cullen or Bella Swan, wore tank tops to look like a tough action star, and sported asymmetrical haircuts like the ones Christian Slater and Minh Luong shown in their Gleaming the Cube flick? That can happen again. But this time, you’ll find a better fashion style because the actors in The Great Gatsby were dressed using the minds of a well-known designer. You will definitely find something that will make you look great and decent.
