The Great Gatsby is set to be the fashion movie of the year, with ‘20s inspired trends influencing collections across the globe.

And we now have a sneak peek of the stunning costumes Carey Mulligan will be wearing in the film, designed by Miuccia Prada and Catherine Martin.

The first of The Great Gatsby sketches is one of Carey Mulligan's frocks [Prada]The Creative Director of the Italian fashion house has collaborated with director Baz Luhrmann and his Costume Designer wife Catherine Martin to create 40 bespoke dresses.

Oscar-winning Catherine said her husband and Miuccia Prada have a shared fascination with ‘finding modern ways of releasing classic and historical references from the shackles of the past.’

One of the first sketches released is one of Carey Mulligan’s character Daisy Buchanan, who wears an orange organza Prada dress covered in plastic, scale-like embroidery.

The dress, which is styled with a fur stole, is inspired by Prada’s AW13 runway collection.

It’s inspired by the fashion of the 1920s but updated with the modern fabrics and embroideries of the 1950s.
