In the 1974 edition of The Great Gatsby, Jake was played by Robert Redford and Daisy by Mia Farrow while in the 2012 updated version by Baz Luhrmann, it stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan in the lead roles.

I love the fashion of the roaring 20's , the hats and the dropped waist dresses plus chains of pearls and accessories. Looking back, it definitely had an effect on my wedding dress design including my hat. I remembered back in 1974, I was enarmoured by the white vision of Mia Farrow and Robert Redford on magazine covers and today, I can't wait for the new movie. Hopefully, it might influence the fashion of the season again.
