Breathe, everyone. Get ready. There are A LOT of things we need to talk about with regards to the latest trailer for The Great Gatsby so we want you to be prepared. Baz Lurmann's epic adaptation of the great American novel is one of the most anticipated films of the year, and with its release date rapidly approaching (May 10th, so soon so soon) our excitement is heading into fever pitch territory. We've already learned that the men in the film--none other than the great Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, and Joel Edgerton—will be outfitted by Brooks Brothers, and that the ladies, most importantly Carey Mulligan's Daisy Buchanan, will be dressed by Miuccia Prada. Vogue got their hands on some exclusive sketches of the Prada looks, so naturally we had our eyes peeled for them when the brand new trailer dropped yesterday. Besides featuring a snippet of Beyonce's cover of "Back to Black" by Amy Winehouse, the trailer also has new songs from Lana Del Rey and Florence And The Machine, but the INCREDIBLE soundtrack isn't what we're here to discuss, is it? No, we're here to discuss the AMAZING DRESSES on Carey Mulligan. Deep breaths, it's going to be ok. The trailer features more than SEVEN looks, and those are just the ones we can get a good look at.
A look from The Great Gatsby.
We already know that The Great Gatsby is all about opulence, with the title character's quest for a magical life at the forefront of the narrative, and Mulligan's costumes reflect that desire in their exquisite details and luxurious fabrication. Her first look in the trailer isn't one that we recognize from the Prada sketches, but it could very possibly be one of Miuccia's creations. Dusty purple lace covers Mulligan like a springtime spiderweb, and wisps of fabric bloom from her shoulders like flower petals. While the dress is only visible from the waist up, a blue sash is visible. We're incredibly curious as to the cut of the rest of the dress, and unfortunately the trailer only affords us that one look.
