The Roaring 20s are back, thanks to the ’13 version of “The Great Gatsby,” out Friday. There’s no shortage of marketing tie-ins. Brooks Brothers unveiled a limited-edition collection inspired by the costumes in Baz Luhrmann’s film. Think tuxes, tailored suits and waist coats. Moet & Chandon is the drink of choice at Leonardo DiCaprio’s over the top, on-screen soirees (pictured). Old-time perfumer Krigler put out a candle that evokes the romance of the era; the woody scent was once worn by F. Scott himself.


The Met Ball, aka the East Coast Oscars, is celebrating Madonna’s breakout era thanks to the NYC museum’s Costume Institute exhibit, “Punk: Chaos to Couture.” Can’t wait to see the A-listers in edgy hardware like skull necklaces, spider charms and spiky bracelets. Jewelry brand Sydney Evan has hopped on the wagon, selling ’80s-inspired pieces in 14K gold and pave diamonds. At Oxygene Paris in Bal Harbour, Ida &Harry at the Fontainebleau.


Cue the tissues. Ryan Kwanten, of HBO’s “True Blood,” is doing something unique for Mother’s Day. The Aussie collaborated with SKY and LIVI, a company that makes diamonds out of hair that’s lost during chemotherapy (a lab works with a person’s unique carbon signature). The pendant Kwanten created for his mom Kris, a breast cancer survivor, is from his own luscious locks. All proceeds go to cancer charity Look Good Feel Better. Bid at charitybuzz.com/RyanKwanten.


Cute gift idea for Mom: hers and hers shades. Bond like Jerry Hall and Georgia May Jagger did while shooting their campaign for Sunglass Hut. “My mum taught me a lot about fashion in terms of knowing what looks good on you and developing my own sense of style,” Mick’s model offspring told Elle.
