The Great Gatsby: First Look
I can't wait for this year's Baz Luhrman adaptation of The Great Gatsby, featuring a very stylish cast including Carey Mulligan, Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Isla Fisher and Gemma Ward. Sadly we'll have to wait until December for the film to be released, but the movie poster and some stills from the film have already been leaked to fans hungry for what is set to be the most glamourous and luxourious film of the year.
I'm a huge fan of the F. Scott Fitzgerald book which is synonymous with the roaring 20s, before the life of excess, jazz and exuberance imploded. It's a great read, and the style and fashions take centre stage. The original film, starring Mia Farrow and Robert Redford is also well worth watching.
This film is sure to set the tone for 20s style fashions this year, so stock up now on embellishment, dropped waists, palazzo pants, head-scarves, pearls and all things flapper.
