Just released today, the latest teaser trailer for the upcoming film remake of The Great Gatsby is certainly doing its job in increasing anticipation ahead of the movie’s release in December. Based on F Scott Fitzgerald’s literary classic first published in 1925, the film tells the tale of life and love amongst the party set on Long Island’s North Shore during the “roaring” 1920s.
Starring Leonardo di Caprio as the eponymous Gatsby, the cast also includes Tobey Maguire as narrator Nick Carraway and Brit favourite Carey Mulligan as Gatsby’s erstwhile married love interest Daisy Buchanan. With experienced Aussie director Baz Luhrmann at the helm, it’s bound to be a spectacular visual treat.
One of the things I most love about the 1920s era are all the amazing fashions and clothing styles, and from the trailer it looks as if the costume department from The Great Gatsby have gone all out with some gorgeous Flapper style costumes and accessories such as Charleston Headbands and Cigarette Holders. I can’t wait to see how it all looks on the big screen!
I’m obviously far from alone in my love of Roaring Twenties style, as the best selling costumes from our Gangster fancy dress range prove. So why not join in the fun and release your inner Flapper girl or sharp suited gangster at your next fancy dress event?
