First look: 'The Great Gatsby' costumes

These frocks will have you drooling. GUARANTEED.

That’s it, we can’t wait any longer for The Great Gatsby to open! WE WANT IT NOW. But since a tantrum won’t get it in the cinema any faster (we tried) we’re just torturing ourselves with every lil’ bit of delish goss we can get our hands on. And man does the latest titbit have us salivating! Prada has released original sketches of some of Carey Mulligan and Isla Fisher’s amazing 1920s frocks and they’re so beautiful it hurts.

Working alongside the legendary costume designer (and Baz Luhrman’s wife), Catherine Martin, Prada’s creative director Miuccia Prada produced 40 bespoke dresses in total for the flick. In other words, these sketches are just tip of the amazeballs-fash iceberg.

The costumes were inspired by select looks from the Prada and Miu Miu catwalks over the past 20 years.

“Baz and Miuccia have always connected on their shared fascination with finding modern ways of releasing classic and historical references from the shackles of the past,” explains Martin. “This connection is central to our relationship with Miuccia Prada on The Great Gatsby, and has connected our vision with hers.”

Amazing, we'll have one of everything!

Having worked with Prada on Romeo + Juliet, we know Martin and Baz Luhrman already have a great thing going with the iconic designer. The proof is in the sketches, right? Well if you don't want to put your faith in drawings, we have a sneaky pic too!

As you can see, some of the dresses are on display at the Prada New York Epicenter until 12 May and they are epic. Quick get us a plane, because these dresses are AMAZING.
