The costumes in Baz Luhrmann's Great Gatsby (which finally opens today) are gorgeous confections with an over-the-top 1920s sensibility. In almost every scene, those outfits are topped off with headbands, headwraps, or barrettes--and we were absolutely captivated by the look. (Downton Abbey and the recent spring couture shows have also recently showcased some amazing '20s style head gear.) The good news is that you can totally work this trend without looking like Daisy Buchanan's BFF or the fourth sister from Downton Abbey. Trust us (and experts headpiece makers like Eugenia Kim and Jennifer Behr).
We sat down with The Great Gatsby producer, set designer and costumer Catherine Martin to get all the dish on how the incredible clothes and sets came together. She revealed that you might even be able to see them up close and in person at an upcoming exhibition, too.
