On the Set: The Great Gatsby

I am so excited for this movie! It’s one of my favorite books and with Baz Luhrmann directing and this amazing cast I am really hoping they can do justice to the book. Very excited to see all the beauty and fashion inspiration that comes from this film set in the roaring 20’s.

Bax Luhrmann’s Great Gatsby

This adaptation of F.Scott Fitzgerald’s classic is anticipated by literature fans in the same way its chief protagonist Jay Gatsby lusts after the unattainable object of his affections is in the novel.

Their longed for union turns out to be a tragic disappointment, but from the looks of things, this sumptuous film will be anything but.

A beautiful Sydney Summer is providing the backdrop for a floral wonderland of a set at the city’s Centennial Park, which has been dressed up to represent New York’s Long Island 86 years ago.

Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire and Carey Mulligan looked sensational on the set of The Great Gatsby in Sydney today.

Leonardo DiCaprio plays the self-made man, who amasses a mysterious fortune to gain the love of rich, spoiled Daisy Buchanan (played by Carey Mulligan), only to be destroyed by her – and her wealthy, boorish pillar of the establishment husband.

It’s set in 1922, seven years before the Wall Street Crash that led to the Great Depression, and centres on this futile tragedy of an ordinary man trying to work his way into the privileged elite.

It’s a fitting narrative for our straightened times, but in these scenes 37-year-old DiCaprio’s Gatsby is still enjoying the perks of the nouveau riche as he strolls through a Summer garden.

What a gent: Leonardo is dressed finely but Gatsby isn’t who he appears to be, and is used by the party crowd then cast aside

DiCaprio looks incredible as the socially awkward protagonist who dresses to compensate for his lowly birth in a cream suit with brown fitted waistcoat accessorised with a cane.

What a flapper: Carey Mulligan’s outfits in the film are sure to set trends for next Summer

The crew have finished off the look by setting his hair in a wave, to achieve that Roaring Twenties party style.

But it’s Carey’s party girl wardrobe that’s sure to spawn imitations, and this scene’s breathtaking ensemble is no exception.

The British belle looks incredible in lavender lace with cornflower-tinged frills and matching fingerless gloves, a coordinated hat was spied in her hand.

But even in this symphony of wonderment, her Mary Jane shoes in purple and gold stand out.

Karl Lagerfeld creates a makeup line for Sephora!

After announcing that Karl Lagerfeld would be launching his debut fragrance, Karleidoscope, news that he’s creating a makeup line for Sephora seemed like a obvious follow up. Sephora has just released a first look at the new line, and it looks pretty cool so far!

The designer has created a limited edition Christmas collection for the brand, featuring a Karl shaped eye palette, nail polishes in black and gold and an ever-so-chic makeup bag with Lagerfeld’s portrait and signature embossed on the front.

It’s safe to say we’d like it all but as for our favourite part of the collection, it has to be the Karl snow globe. Surely it’s what every girl wants for Christmas? A minature Kaiser Karl under a shower of gold glitter.

Can’t wait!
