Through the Lens: Baz Lurhmann's The Great Gatsby

Carey Mulligan as Daisy Buchanan on the set of The Great Gatsby

New photos from the Sydney, Australia, set of Baz Lurhmann's adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby have surfaced online, with its stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan and Tobey Maguire in costume.  Luhrmann's wife, the multi-talented Catherine Martin is the production and costume designer for the film.  What do you think of the costumes so far?

I personally think Robert Redford made for a pretty dreamy Gatsby in the 1974 version, though the film received very mixed reviews -- it should be interesting to see how this one pans out with DiCaprio in the title role.  I've also read that Luhrmann is shooting the film in 3D, which is set to be released Christmas 2012. Said Luhrmann of the film: "Fitzgerald’s story defies time and geography. The vision and the goal of our remarkable cast and creatives is to do justice to the deftness of Fitzgerald’s telling, and illuminate its big ideas and humanity. This is our challenge and our adventure."


Here are a few other shots of some of the actors in costume, like Isla Fisher as Myrtle Wilson and Gemma Ward as her sister Catherine.

The expressions in this photograph are too funny not to include.
