The Great Gatsby- Baz Lurhman. The costumes in Lurhman's Gatsby were breathtaking, and have caused it to make a huge impact on the film industry. While the film itself didn't come out on top with it's critic reviews, the costumes, atmosphere and soundtrack are unique to his style and to the film industry as a whole. I want to create a costume as showstopping as Lurhman did with The Great Gatsby.
The Great Gatsby. I read this because of my English A Level - and I am SOO glad it's on the curriculum! This book is a fantastic time capsule, amazingly written - it's so difficult not to just fall in love with Nick - and it tells a great love story. ~ AmyJane
A portrait of the Jazz Age in all of its decadence and excess, Gatsby captured the spirit of the author's generation and earned itself a permanent place in American mythology. Self-made, self-invented millionaire Jay Gatsby embodies some of Fitzgerald's--and his country's--most abiding obsessions: money, ambition, greed, and the promise of new beginnings.
