Daisy Buchanan is one lucky lady!

Even though her Met exhibit was a flop, Miuccia Prada is moving on to bigger greater things: the silver screen.

The designer is collaborating with costume designer, Catherine Martin, to create 1920s-inspired gowns for the actresses in Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby.

For the project, Miuccia picked out 40 dresses from the Prada and Miu Miu archives to be adapted into the film, which hits theaters next summer.

Miz Prada said of her choices:

"I usually try not to literally reference periods in my work, because that's not the way I think. 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."

We're kinda surprised Luhrmann didn't go with Ralph Lauren for the flick, especially since he did the costumes for the original film, but Miuccia is a great choice too.

Designers aside, Gatsby will definitely be the biggest sartorial film of the year, and sparkliest thanks to Tiffany's!
