Miuccia Prada created many of the great looks in The Great Gatsby. And at least one eye-catching gown inspired by the hit movie is for sale at the Houston Miu Miu boutique.

Carey Mulligan, who portrays Daisy Buchanan in the movie based on the iconic F. Scott Fitzgerald novel, wears a beaded seafoam green gown in the May issue of Vogue. The dress, which was part of a recent Great Gatsby costume exhibit at the New York Prada store, hosted by Prada herself, has been made in a few sizes in a limited-edition production exclusively for Miu Miu.

The price: $19,000.

The look: Priceless.

Prada collaborated with Gatsby costume designer Catherine Martin on more than 40 designs for the film's lavish party scenes. The duo raided the Prada and Miu Miu archives to modify a selection of classic Prada designs to capture the Roaring Twenties attitude that director Baz Luhrmann was seeking.

Miu Miu isn't the only retailer getting into the act. Tiffany & Co. and Brooks Brothers are also offering Gatsby-themed jewelry and clothing.
