Baz Luhrmann brings back the roaring twenties with his remake of The Great Gatsby


Baz Luhrmann is remaking the classic novel, The Great Gatsby, starring Leonardo DiCaprio as the disillusioned social-climber Jay Gatsby and Carey Mulligan as the charming yet shallow Daisy Buchanan. The movie is set to release December 25th. These roles were originally played by Robert Redford and Mia Farrow in the 1974 version.

Between The Great Gatsby and Downtown Abby, the roaring twenties is making a come back this year. 
Simple chemise dresses, dropped waistlines and Eton crops styled beneath cloche hats adorned with beading, feathers and string upon string of pearls. 

Ralph Lauren designed the costumes for the 1974 version of The Great Gatsby and revived the trend thirty-eight year later with his Spring RTW 2012 collection.
