Silver Screen Style: A Visionary, New Trailer For Baz Luhrmann’s ‘The Great Gatsby,’ Starring Leonardo DiCaprio & Carey Mulligan!


Some of you may already know that I lend my writing skills to a movie news & reviews website, Movie Buzzers, as a freelance film critic & news reporter. This has its benefits since I love to examine fashion in films & one of the most anticipated movies of 2013 is certainly Baz Luhrmann‘s The Great Gatsby, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan, Tobey Maguire, Joel Edgerton, Isla Fisher, & Elizabeth Debicki.

Not only does the movie celebrate the Jazz Age classic tale, originally written by American author F. Scott Fitzgerald, but it’s Luhrmann’s imagination that brings new life to the 3-D film. Also, costume designer Catherine Martin (Moulin Rouge, Australia) collaborated with Miuccia Prada, whose accomplishments include Prada & Miu Miu, for an impeccable vision for men’s & women’s fashion for the era. You can be certain that luxurious lace details, flapper-inspired hemlines, & art deco accessories will make a comeback once the film premieres on May 10th.

Take a look at the latest trailer, which features an in-depth look at Gatsby’s romance with Daisy, & the love triangle that ensues when Daisy’s husband Tom sees his wife swept away by the millionaire. Are you excited about the premiere of this film? Do you like the casting decisions? What do you think about the fashions?
