Prada and Miu Miu have designed outfits for the upcoming movie The Great Gatsby.

Baz Luhrmann's dazzling silver screen adaptation, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan and Tobey Maguire, is creating a new buzz and this time, it is fashion-related. According to an interview of Miuccia Prada published in the September issue of Vogue, 40 dresses from past Prada and Miu Miu collections will be adapted for the movie.

While Gatsby's couture will be inspired by the elegant 1920s, Prada Spring/Summer 2012 menswear collection represents a very seductive first approach of this era's fashion interpretation.

This second collaboration between Miuccia Prada and Baz Lurhmann promises to be spectacular. For Romeo + Juliet, in 1996, the director asked the Italian designer to create one of Leonardo DiCaprio's unusual outfits.

Carey Mulligan's outfits will also be styled with Tiffany & Co's sparkly creations.

Baz Lurhmann's adaptation of the famous novel published by Francis Scott Fitzgerald in 1925 will hit cinemas in July 2013.
