Decadence, excess and love are the focusses of this Fitzgerald‘s masterpiece. It is a brutal portrait of dandies and flappers throughout les années folles in America and their severing from the Victorian way of life.
Catherine Martin and Miuccia Prada dressed Luhrmann’s Gatsby beautifully capturing the pure and ethereal forms of Art Deco and mirroring the excesses of the roaring twenties. Young and rebellious this collection of corsets and slinky knee-length dresses rocks!
Tomorrow is your deadline to visit the Gatsby’s exhibition at 575 Broadway. Feel up close and personal the metallic lame, sequins, silk taffeta, dyed fur, velvet dresses and also the Gaudiesc accessories.
I must say I have only seen the promising trailer, surely it won’t be as good as the wardrobe.
