Last week I got to finally watch The Great Gatsby, courtesy of Tiffany & Co., and I’ve got to say that I was dazzled. We’ve all read the story, but I truly loved Baz Luhrmann’s (director or Moulin Rouge and Romeo and Juliet) interpretation. Glitzy, loud, and visually stunning, this is definitely one summer movie you shouldn’t miss!
But the main reason I loved this movie as much as I did (other than the chemistry between Carey Mulligan and Leo DiCaprio) were the jaw-dropping costumes and jewelry! Tiffany & Co. created stunning The Great Gatsby and Ziegfeld collections for the film, and I don’t think I’ve ever seen a collab executed more beautifully. From Gatsby’s “Daisy” ring, to Daisy’s over the top party accessories (I mean…that bracelet!!!), to Jordan Baker’s flirty earrings, to Tom’s gift of tassel pearls…each and every Tiffany’s piece felt like it belonged in the movie…on those characters…and in my jewelry box. “The jewelry symbolizes the story’s themes of wealth and privilege, and we approached its design with the utmost style and luxury in mind,” said Jon King, executive vice president of Tiffany & Co.
As we left the movie theatre, the shiny pearls and diamonds continued to sparkle in my mind, as did Mulligan’s stellar performance. If you still haven’t seen the film, I highly recommend it…if not for the story, then for the eye-candy. And after the movie, you can walk over to your closest Tiffany store and see the collection in person. Now that’s great!
