i’ve been wanting to post about the new film, the great gatsby for a couple of weeks now. i spent my morning looking at the BHLDN site and watching the 1974 version of the great gatsby and realized that i finally had my post inspiration! the costumes were so beautiful in this film! i’ve kinda always wanted to throw a roaring 20s party just so i have an excuse to dress that glamorous. after searching BHLDN, i found some pieces that really said, “gatsby” to me and you can add them to your outfit without actually attending a themed party.
now lets talk about the cast! the 1974 version starred mia farrow and robert redford, both of whom i love. this year we get to see leonardo dicaprio, carey mulligan, isla fisher, and toby maguire, to name a few. i have a feeling this will be my favorite leo film since romeo+juliet (they both happen to be directed by baz luhrmann).
i had a lot of fun looking at all of the book covers made for the f. scott fitzgerald novel. they are so beautiful, i love how these artists capture bits from the movie and make them into the book cover. there must be a version for each theme of the story, money; greed; beauty; love, passion….how much do you love the gold modern look?
i’ll definitely be there may 11 watching in awe, i’m sure.
