Prada in 3D! Miuccia’s costuming The Great Gatsby from the Prada and Miu Miu archives
News that Miuccia Prada had a hand in designing Carey Mulligan’s stunning costumes in Baz Luhrmann’s forthcoming retelling of The Great Gatsby has sent our excitement for the movie’s release into overdrive.
Prada worked with Catherine Martin, Luhrmann’s wife and the film’s costume designer, by unearthing 40 designs from Prada and Miu Miu’s vaults that would suit the ’20s flapper aesthetic of the film. Aside from Mulligan, who’s playing Daisy Buchanan, other lucky female cast members will also be clad in adapted designs.
This will also be the third time Prada’s collaborated with Luhrmann—and it’s her second film with Leonardo DiCaprio. (She designed his ill-fated wedding suit from Romeo + Juliet.) While the wait may seem excruciating (the film’s release date got pushed from December 2012 back to July 2013), this just may be delayed gratification at its best. We’ll be keeping ourselves busy by watching the trailer on repeat until then—as you should too!
