Seems like we’ve been waiting a long time for Baz Luhrmann’s 3D, could-be-amazing-could-be-awful take on “The Great Gatsby,” doesn’t it? As we continue to cool our heels, here’s a teeny peek at what could be one of the film’s highlights: the ’20s-era costumes, designed by Catherine Martin (spouse and longtime collaborator of Luhrmann). Forty of those costumes — all, apparently, worn by Carey Mulligan’s Daisy — were created with couture designer Miuccia Prada, and sketches of four of these are on view at Vogue UK. To which, may I say: oooh. Check out that green one. (Prada and Luhrmann, by the way, have collaborated before; she created Leonardo DiCaprio’s suit for “Romeo + Juliet.”) “The Great Gatsby,” flapper frocks and all, will be in theaters May 10.
