Gatsby, Gatsby, Gatsby! I can’t get enough. The soundtrack has unsurprisingly been on repeat.

The roaring twenties were such glamorous years… I absolutely fell in love with how they were portrayed in the most recent adaptation of Fitzgerald’s novel. It was visual overload, in the best sense.

The fashions alone were enough reason to see the movie. Fingers crossed all the men out there take cue and rush to the nearest Brooks Brothers– The 20’s look is sure to make you and instant lady killer.

Besides Leo, I’m sure every lady is also dreaming of the Tiffany & Co. jewels created for the film…


The sets were extravagant… but I found myself lusting over Nick Carraway’s humble cottage in the film- I’ve added it to my recent list of dream homes!

What did you think of the movie?

Illustration above of Carey Mulligan as Daisy Buchanan, inspired by this image. Also illustrated, Tiffany’s Yellow Diamond Daisy Brooch.

  1. Can’t wait to see it!
    And I absolutely ADORE the picture.

    Huh, got a compliment recently about my hair looking like hers, and it really does do that little twirly thing on it’s own. Nice.

  2. Hi Katie!!!
    The movie will only be available in Portugal on the 16th… I’m gonna watch it on the weekend!!! Can’t wait to see it (I’ve read the book so many times…).
    Love the illustrations!!!
    Have a great week! 😉

  3. That’s a beautiful painting!!
    I haven’t seen the movie yet but it has had me very inspired and working on an illustration all weekend.
    All of the jewelry is stunning and I am loving her head piece so much.
    Have a lovely week!

  4. Obsessed with this illustration! Love the sparkling head piece. I can’t wait to see the movie! This is one of my all time favorite books.

  5. Great picture. Some people said the music ruined it for them because it was to modern. But sounds like you liked it.

    1. It was modern, but I didn’t mind it because there’s a cool story and reasoning behind why they did chose what they did.

  6. Gorgeous, you captured Carey Mulligan beautifully, the twinkling effect really helps gives it that glamorous look. I love the 1920’s too i would have loved to have grown up in that era 🙂

  7. Love this illustration! Can’t wait to see the film…and holy crap, Nick Carraway’s cottage is totally my dream home too. We can be neighbors 🙂

  8. Ahhh you beat me to it. I’m also planning a Gatsby-inspired illo. I haven’t seen the film yet but plan to do so very soon since yes, you’re right, the clothes alone justify the ticket price. Anyway love your portrait of daisy and the movement you gave to her sparkling hairband and the floral brooch. This is my absolute favorite era for style.

  9. I remember asking you on FB if you were going to do any Gatsby drawings. I was so happy that you not only answered but when i saw this post, my breath was truly taken away! I love it! And I was surprised how much I loved the soundtrack too.

  10. Oh and I saw the movie at 10 the night before it opened. SO visually inspiring and it stayed true to the book. Been to Brooks Brothers, just need to get down to Tiffany and Co. I love everything you create!

  11. I simply could not go away your web site before suggesting that I extremely loved the standard info an individual provide for your guests? Is going to be again continuously in order to check out new posts
