You may want to laugh (as many did on our shoot last week) when Miranda Kerr called out that we were separated at birth! Maybe not in the looks department but she did make this outlandish statement in relation to our similar aesthetic with just about matching everything.

The Great Debicki

StyleMeRomy loves Elizabeth Debicki. She is only 21 and the hottest young thing to come out of drama school. Here’s a preview of Elizabeth in Australian SS12 collections. Can’t wait to see her in The Great Gatsby!

Have you settled into your stardom or is it still surreal? I am slowly settling only now that shooting is finished. To be honest the time between my first screen test and the end of filming went by so quickly, I’m now just starting to process and reflect on it all.

Can you describe your favourite Great Gatsby outfit: I love the 1920s shape, it’s very freeing to wear. I loved Jordan’s day clothes, they felt sleek and fresh. Perfect for a modern woman.

What did you feel like you had in common with your character, Jordan Baker? Jordan is a multi faceted woman thanks to author Fitzgerald. Perhaps one thing we have in common is impatience and a desire to keep things continually moving forward, getting bored being in the same place for too long. Jordan is a nomad and so am I at the moment.

Leo’s swoon factor: Haha – very funny. He is certainly very charming, I must admit.

What was it like working with Baz Luhrmann? Working was Baz was a joy. He is a true artist, a true collaborator. He has a gift for making actors feel at ease and empowered by the story they are telling.

Favourite line in the movie: Such a difficult question! I’d say: “tomorrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms further and one fine morning, so we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.”

What’s next? I’m back in LA in a few days, apart from that I’m happy to see what the future brings.

What has been the most rewarding acting job you’ve had to date? At the moment I’m doing strange interlude at Belvoir Theatre. Theatre gives you the opportunity to develop and explore your character over an extended period of time which often isn’t the case in film.

Favourite Australian fashion label: Julia de Ville.  She makes incredibly beautiful jewellery.

What are you wearing right now? Jeans, a Kate Sylvester paisley shirt and a massive Wool and the Gang scarf from The Standard Store on Crown Street.
