I want to go to a Gatsby party.

The Great Gatsby trailer has finally been released and I could not be more excited! I'm a huge fan of the book, having read it in English Lit at 6th Form and when I found out over a year ago that Baz Luhrmann was making a new (3D!) adaptation of my favourite book with Leonardo DiCaprio as Gatsby (best casting ever) I was literally counting down the days until its release!

From what the trailer shows, the whole look of the film is so very Luhrmann and completely encapsulates the extravagance and excitement of  1920's New York. Influences from this era have been seen on the catwalks for some time now and this bound to explode by the time the film is released this December. The fashion, alongside the performances and the film in general, are sure to be a huge talking point of the film. 

In a slightly unusual but brilliant choice, Jay Z and Kanye West's collaboration No Church For The Wild accompanies the opening voice over of the trailer and achieves in setting the whole tone for the film which is sure to be incredible.

literally cannot wait to see this film and if Baz Luhrmann's previous masterpieces (Moulin Rouge anyone?) are anything to go by this will definitely not disappoint!
