So I think you would probably have to have been living on another planet, to have missed that the remake of The Great Gatsby, directed by Baz Luhrmann, is to be released on the 16th May 2013.

I for one will be going to see this, not only because I think it will be a great movie but better than that, the one and only Miuccia Prada has designed the wardrobe…this in itself will make it for me!

F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel has started a slow and subtle 20’s revolution.

Will we be flapping our way through the summer?

Quite possibly, though it’s not the easiest decade to pull off; a straight up and down boyish figure is what we’re going to need and this definitely rules me out!

However to get us in the mood and show us how it should be done Signe Vilstrup has shot these fabulous images for the Harrods Magazine

Hmmmm, does anyone know where I can get some super strength spanx from!?!?!

It appears that the gym and I are going to be fairly inseparable if this trend hangs around too long!!

If dressing the part isn’t tickling your fancy then this may be more up your street.

Harrods are launching a pop – up Twenties themed space from May 9th – 20th .

According to Vogue, the space will allow Harrods customers to “hark back to the lavish entertaining and unmistakable glamour of the roaring Twenties”.

The Tasting Room and Wine shop will be transformed with Art – Deco decor and cocktail making demonstration will be on show throughout the day.

Now this is part of the Twenties revival I’m more suited to!

If you interested a one-off evening event will be held on Friday 10th May, allowing guests to enjoy a twenties style jazz band, canapés and the best part – a cocktail mixing masterclass held by award-winning mixologists.

Tickets cost £50 and can be booked by emailing

Any takers?
