I saw the original “The Great Gatsby” for the first time last night and boy, what a treat it was! The movie has a great plot. It’s actually just a bit of a tear jerker and has a very melancholy and nostalgic aura to it. But the icing on the cake is the fashion.. Oh, the fashion.
Robert Redford is so dashing in his ivy hat and impeccable suits designed by Ralph Lauren. And is it just me or Robert Redford sort of look like Brad Pitt? Who would’ve thought he could pull off an all pink suit ensemble! What straight man could do that? I have to admit that I was more blown away by his costumes than Mia Farrow’s.
I heard there’s a 2013 remake of this movie which stars Leonardo DiCaprio as Jay Gatsby and Carrey Mulligan as Daisy Buchanan. I can’t wait to see this version. I’m pretty sure the fashion would knock my socks off. In the meantime, go and rent the original movie from Netflix and enjoy these outfits with Burberry ivy hats inspired by the movie. Perfect for fall and winter.
What’s your favorite movie that features great fashion? Thank you for reading and have a great weekend!
