While fans will have to wait until next summer to check out Baz Luhrmann's big screen adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's "The Great Gatsby," we can at least obsess over what's to come via next month's issue of Vogue. The September issue features an interview with Miuccia Prada, design maven of the houses of Prada and Miu Miu, who chats about her work with "Gatsby" costume designer (and Luhrmann's wife) Catherine Martin and altering 40 dresses from the labels' archives for the film.
Luhrmann and Prada's relationship goes way back to working with the director to help create Leonardo DiCaprio's suit for "Romeo + Juliet" to more recently for the Elsa Schiaparelli short starring the designer for this year's Met Ball. However, Prada will not be involved in suiting DiCaprio's Gatsby this time, as Brooks Brothers has stepped in to dress the film's fellas, while Tiffany & Co. will be providing plenty of glitter for the gals.
We've already begun pouring over Miu Miu and Prada runways of yore and have started pinpointing frocks we think could be mocked up to the proper time period.
What do you think of the Prada pairing? Do you wish they went with a different designer? Or should they have pulled historically authentic pieces created specifically for the film? Discuss below.
