Baz Luhrmann's adaptation of The Great Gatsby doesn't hit theaters for another six months, but that didn't stop British Vogue from giving us the ultimate teaser — sketches of Miuccia Prada and costume designer Catherine Martin's flapper looks!

"Baz and Miuccia have always connected on their shared fascination with finding modern ways of releasing classic and historical references from the shackles of the past," Martin told the glossy. "This connection is central to our relationship with Miuccia Prada on The Great Gatsby, and has connected our vision with hers. In the same way Nick Carraway reflects on a world that he is within and without, we have tried to create an environment that the audience will be subconsciously familiar with, yet separated from." 

Audiences are definitely familiar with seeing Leonardo DiCaprio (aka Jay Gatsby) in Prada. The actor wore one of Miuccia's suits for the wedding scene in Luhrmann's Romeo and Juliet — a fact that we're mentioning in order post this gratuitous '90s Leo photo.
