Dressing For Gatsby’s Party

Glimpses of sparkling champagne and the twirling fringe of flappers’ dresses all add to the breathtaking 1920s glamour that graces the screen as the powerfully pounding beat of Kanye West’s “No Church in the Wild” ushers in party guests dripping in pearls and donning sharp suits. The excitement soars with the sight of Leonardo DiCaprio’s compelling smile as his and Carey Mulligan’s characters enthrall us through the intense love story that F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote for them in his The Great Gatsby.


And this is just the experience of watching the preview.


People everywhere are waiting in tortured anticipation for this movie, set to be released Friday, May 10th. The soundtrack has already taken storm, featuring songs by Kanye West, Jay-Z, Florence and the Machine, and Lana Del Rey.


One of the biggest impacts the movie has had even before its release is on fashion.
