British actress Carey Mulligan was recently featured in US Vogue decked out in some serious twenties inspired couture. She plays Daisy Buchanan in the forthcoming film adaptation of The Great Gatsby. Since falling in love with the story, having studied the book by F. Scott Fitzgerald in grade 12, I was overjoyed at learning that there would be another big-screen re-make. I have a true soft spot for the book and I can’t wait to see what the movie will bring. The 1974 film starring Mia Farrow as Daisy and Robert Redford as Jay Gatsby is a classic and one of my favourites of all time. At least what we have been shown of the sets and costume designs of the film to be released this month looks as opulent as it should be. The dresses, the feathers, the jewels – swoon! I’m sure practically the whole world is waiting in suspense to see the film – I know I am!
