“Great Gatsby” to Bring Back 20s Glam

Carey Mulligan plays Daisy Buchanan in the upcoming "The Great Gatsby"

Sydney, Australia—Justin Timberlake might’ve brought sexy back but Leonardo DiCaprio’s turn as Jay Gatsby will definitely bring back debonair.

While not opening in theaters for another year, photos leaking off “The Great Gatsby” film set indicate it’s going to be worth waiting for. And it’s going to have enough beaded, sequined, bejeweled 1920s clothing and accessories to make you want to invent a time machine.

Directed by Baz Luhrman (“Moulin Rouge,” “Romeo + Juliet”) and starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire and Carey Mulligan as socialites (and wannabes) on Long Island’s Gold Coast, the film will be loaded with magnificent retro eye candy. Look for beaded flapper dresses, felt cloches, lace gloves, fur stoles, pearls, bejeweled hair accessories and Art Deco jewelry.

It’s also filming in 3D, so moviegoers might just find themselves reaching up to touch the pieces.

And as HBO’s Prohibition-era series “Boardwalk Empire” just signed on for a Season 3, it looks like the 20s are here to stay.
