Posted on   |   Comments (0)

“The Great Gatsby” starring Carey Mulligan and Leo DiCaprio ( release moved to summer 2013) play up to the jazz-age era of stylized-sartorial flair, but this time around, the details may not be so spot on. Sure, the 20’s gave us flappers, and Louis Brooks iconic bob, but this movie slated for Oscar wins, offers a new-take on an old classic.

The make up and hair has a modern feel yet stays in contrast with the era but not accurate-obsessed, leaving plenty of leverage to take it to the street. Mulligan who plays Daisy Buchanan gets to flaunt from a plethora of contemporary Prada; 40 dresses from the Prada and Miu Miu archives and for Dicaprio, classic Brooks Brothers tuxedos and suits.
