The Great Gatsby

The long-awaited trailer for The Great Gatsby was finally released on May 22nd! The film, directed by Baz Lurhmann (Romeo + Juliet, Moulin Rouge!) stars Carey Mulligan and Leonardo DiCaprio as Daisy and Gatsby. It looks utterly spectacular - an sparkly, colourful, explosion of 1920s decadence.

The story is set during the "roaring" 20s, and age of American prosperity - and the costume and set design sure do show it! The scenes of Gatsby's parties are spectacular - confetti, dancers in twinkling costumes, beautifully cut dresses and suits...a feast for the eyes!

The glorious period costumes were designed by Catherine Martin, who also acted as Production Designer (and Producer!). She worked with director Lurhmann (also her husband) previously, on Romeo + Juliet and Moulin Rouge!.

And finally the famous couple, Gatsby and Daisy...

The Great Gatsby is set to be in cinemas on December 25th, Christmas Day, 2012 - I can't wait!!!
