At Csquared we are very into the whole gangster/1920s fashion (check out our Boardwalk Empire fashion inspiration post) and ever since it was announced that Baz Luhrmann was remaking The Great Gatsby–and that the cast included Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan and model Gemma Ward we have been counting down the days until we can see the film, which quite cruelly doesn’t come out until December 25, 2012. However, last week, we get a little preview of what’s to come thanks to the movie’s just-released trailer.
The trailer opens up with a group of perfectly-costumed revelers partying it up and drinking champagne while their car speeds down a bridge into Mahattan to one of our favorite tunes -Kanye West and Jay-Z’s ‘No Church in the Wild’, which sets the tone for the trailer’s lavish party scenes and even better wardrobe.
This trailer is a visual feast that assures us we’re in for a breathtaking blend of 20s decadence with a modern twist. DiCaprio looks incredibly dapper, and seems to be perpetually clad in a cream colored suit. The rest of the cast is just as well-dressed.
Best bit of the trailer is when there are some tailored shirts flying like birds off a balcony, and Carey Mulligan, as Daisy Buchanan, says “You always look so cool. The man in the cool beautiful shirts,” — to which we can only nod — and then you see Tobey Maguire’s retro, shiny, inimitable hair, and suspenders, and killer satin bow ties, tied perfectly.
Are you as excited as us for Christmas, when this film will be released?
