    Great Gatsby :: Baz Luhrmann

     

    Jazz Age excess with a hip-hop flourish ~ the gilded glamour of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel, The Great Gatsby has been captured by film=maker Baz Luhrmann.

    Jay Gatsby, played by Leonardo DiCaprio is supported by Bollywood star Amitabh Bachchan as the shady businessman, Meyer Wolfsheim, Carey Mulligan as Daisy Buchanan, Joel Edgerton as Tom Buchanan and Elizabeth Debicki as Jordan Baker.

    Baz Luhrmann’s star-studded adaptation of “The Great Gatsby” features spectacular visuals (the film will be in 3-D) and modern music in an anachronistic setting.

    Swinging into spring

     

    What a wonderful day for a picnic, Great Gatsby style!

    Styled by the amazing Grace Coddington, this is the photo Anna Wintour famously axed from Vogue as captured in documentary The September Issue. Coddington loved the Jazz Age picnic image and intended to run it in the magazine. Wintour didn’t care for it.
