“Gatsby? What Gatsby?” Such is the famous question uttered by Carey Mulligan in Baz Luhrmann’s latest rendition of The Great Gatsby.
Leonardo DiCaprio returns to the big screen this spring as Jay Gatsby, the tragic hero seeking to recapture the love of the girl of his dreams, Daisy Buchanan, played by fresh-faced Mulligan.
The film boasts more than 2,000 garments borrowed from the Brooks Brothers for the male costumes, and a collaboration with Miuccia Prada for 40 of the female costumes (including Mulligan’s chandelier party dress and fur for the infamous Gatsby party scene).
Characters glide in and out of frame in light pastels, tuxedos, Tiffany headbands, bold prints and flowing garments, reflecting the opulence of the 1920s. Truly, these costumes are a character upon themselves.
In this exclusive, FAJO Magazine presents some of the looks seen in the film.
The Great Gatsby opened in theatres on May 10 and continues to play across Canada and the United States.
