People in India are talking two things about the The Great Gatsby movie: Amitabh Bachchan’s role and the The Great Gatsby Tiffany jewelry collection.
While Amitabh Bachchan’s blink and miss role has been hugely appreciated by Variety magazine, the jewelry collection has already become a rage among online audience.
Here’s the review
“By far the liveliest work in the film comes from two actors with only a few minutes of screen time between them: the lithe, long-limbed newcomer Elizabeth Debicki as gabby golf pro Jordan Baker, and, in a single scene that marks his belated Hollywood debut, Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan as the flamboyant Jewish “gambler,” Meyer Wolfsheim. “
Early this month, Big B along with his wife Jaya Bachchan had attended the red carpet premiere of The Great Gatsby. He was overwhelmed to see the loudest cheer at the premiere.
Apart from Amitabh Bachchan, audience in India is also eagerly waiting to see the stunning pieces being adorned by the different actors in the movie.
The Great Gatsby, the much-awaited 3D romantic drama film is going to be one of the biggest movies in 2013 and critics are already talking about its chances of sweeping away all the major awards, including Oscar and Bafta. And ever since the release of its first few teaser clips, the Great Gatsby jewelry collection has been the talk of the town in the fashion world.
In India, the movie is scheduled to be released on 17th of May. Since the pictures of the roaring-twenties inspired jewels of Jazz Era of this movie were released, they went viral online increasing the curiosity level of every lady out there fond of accessories.
Even the fashion world is talking about the superb creation by Tiffany & Co. who have teamed up with costume designer Catherine Martin, who is also wife of the director of the movie, Baz Luhrmann, to rewrite history on jewelry used in Hollywood movies.
Just like jewels worn by Elizabeth Taylor in Cleopatra have become immortal, the Tiffany & Co. collection is going to immortalize the Daisy character played by Carry Mulligan.
The collaboration of Catherine Martin with Tiffany has resulted in a diamond and cultured pearl Savoy tiara and Marguerite jewels for Carey Mulligan, a pair of Art Deco-style chandelier earrings and a pearl bracelet for Elizabeth Debicki in the role of Jordan Baker, and a silver hipflask and black enamel cufflinks for Leonardo Di Caprio, who portrays the protagonist Jay Gatsby.
The jewelry collection is inspired from Tiffany’s archive dating back to 1920s, which truly justifies the drama of the same era.
Baz Luhrmann on the collaboration –
“There’s one important piece that really brings it to life: “Catherine Martin can do any amount of work on jewelry on costume but that doesn’t mean it will look right. It takes a great actor to illuminate a costume. The great privilege was I was able to work with the finest actors in the world. That’s the biggest special effect.”
The director along-with Tiffany & Co. are betting on Great Gatsby tie-in line of jewelry more than the superb star cast, storyline and picturization.
From the diamond headpiece that costs $200,000 to other jewels, which cost altogether $875,000 this dazzling collection will provoke you to look at these glittering, masterly finesses and forget all about the sinister narrative role played by A-listers actors like Leonardo De Caprio, Tobey Maguire, Carey Mulligan, Isla Fisher and Amitabh Bachchan in the film.
Enjoy the movie!!
