2)    GATSBY LOOKS GREAT: Dubbed the “Great American Novel” by many literary scholars, F. Scott Fitzgerald’s book, The Great Gatsby is returning to the big screen, this time with Leonardo DiCaprio starring as the ambitious but flawed Jay Gatsby.

But when I worked on the costumes, I realized how many pieces could become very 1920s with a little intervention and another point of view,” Prada told Vogue in the magazine’s 916-page September issue. The latest incarnation of the popular novel is the fourth to hit theaters since the book was first published in 1925, with iconic film star Robert Redford taking on the lead role in the 1974 version alongside actress Mia Farrow.
