The Great Gatsby – Dressed by Prada and Miu Miu, dancing good music produced by Jay-Z

Already in cinemas in USA from the 10th of May, ready for UK cinemas from the 16th of May, The Great Gatsby is one of the most awaited movies of this early 2013.

This version of the movie, based on F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel published in 1925 and directed by Baz Luhrmann (Rome+Juliet, Moulin Rouge, Australia), follows other four previous movies, and it seems to have an appeal to the public completely new.

Beyond the great cast (Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Carey Mulligan, Joen Edgerton, Isla Fisher), what I can say about it is that definitely the choice of the costumes comes from an  exceptional collaboration, since Miuccia Prada, designer of Prada and Miu Miu, accepted to provide this movie with some of the best clothes created for previous collections, and then rearranged for the big screen. The final result: spectacular outfits that add to Luhrmann’s version of The Great Gatsby that “something more” that makes definitely the difference, made already special by an amazing hip-hop, R&B, pop, rock and indie, all mixed with hints of jazz and blues soundtrack executive-produced by Jay-Z. About that, just few names: Andre 3000, Florence+the Machine, The xx, Lana Del Rey, Jack White, Beyonce, Emile Sandé, will. i. am, Fergie.

Curious enough? As I said, the movie is out in UK on May 16 🙂
