Halloween is fun and great and wonderful… until you end up spending $100+ to cobble together some costume you’ll wear for a single drunken evening before it sinks to the back of your closet, never to be worn again (those whiskey stains don’t help).
So, we’re here to help: these ten dresses will work great for various decade-spanning Halloween costumes… but you can also repeat wear them because they’re not actually costumes. Sure, you might spend a little more, but you also get a nice dress out of it. More
Directed by Oscar® nominee Baz Luhrmann, The Great Gatsby is the haunting American tale of a Midwestern writer who moves to New York and becomes entangled in the life of his captivating, wealthy neighbor. As most of you know The Great Gatsby follows … More
Since the ingredient list for this (spoof) cocktail is very questionable, drinking it is off-limits. That said, I wouldn’t put it past Leonardo DiCaprio to raise a glass of this, paste on a smirk and toast to us all.

James Franco‘s Vice review of The Great Gatsby begs the question: which awkward, vaguely applicable sex act from high school were you reminded of? More
The 2013 Cannes Film Festival began yesterday–kicking off with Baz Luhrmann‘s take on The Great Gatsby. Here is the celebrity-laden red carpet, featuring the film’s stars, various fellow A-listers, a slew of fancy Euro-celebs and at least one Phoebe Price (obviously). More
Spoiler! Sweetheart, you just don’t get to commit hit and runs and still qualify as a good person. I know that when it comes to Daisy Buchanan (played by Carey Mulligan) that is really confusing for some people. Nonetheless, that is true, even if your voice is so soft and gentle and lovely and you look like the cutest blonde flapper ever. But once you kill someone and flee the state, you’re still a villain. It’s just this whole thing about how villainy works. Good outfits, though. More
This week, we’re playing in honor of Baz Luhrmann‘s upcoming glitzy blockbuster, The Great Gatsby (which Jen hated, PS). Today’s trio will therefore be Jay Gatsby (played by Leonardo DiCaprio), Tom Buchanan (played by Joel Edgerton) and Nick Carraway (played by Tobey Maguire). Jen’s dream has always been to marry Gatsby, so the ‘bed’ option is the wild card here. …The one thing everyone is certain about, though, is how hard Daisy sucks. More
Look, when I went into a screening of The Great Gatsby at The Ziegfeld yesterday, I wanted to like Gatsby more than anyone. I’ve been tweeting the novel in its entirety every night for the last three years. And I am sure I would have loved it, if the Jay Gatsby Baz Luhrmann created and Leonardo DiCaprio portrayed was not such an absolutely relentless jerk. More
Daisy Buchanan isn’t a role model for women, but who cares? More
We have previously established that Tiffany’s The Great Gatsby-inspired collection is incredible, but for most of us, obtaining any of that gorgeous jewelry is quite the pipe dream. The kind of people who could afford such beautiful baubles, bangles and beads are people who are famous and wealthy like, oh, I don’t know, movie stars? More
Last night, Baz Luhrmann‘s hotly anticipated reimagining of The Great Gatsby premiered in New York and the glittery movie’s cast showed up in their glitteriest looks. Except Carey Mulligan, who went the extreme opposite direction.
Many sparkles, sequins, pearls and appliques ahead… More
Carey Mulligan is currently in the thick of promoting The Great Gatsby, which is good news for anyone who enjoys looking at pictures of Carey Mulligan. In the June issue of Harper’s Bazaar UK, Ms. Mulligan poses for a series of lovely, seasonally appropriate photos: there are flowers on the trees and on her clothes, and she even wears a pair of rain boots in one shot. Her beauty look is fittingly soft and natural, and the accompanying article is full of cute tidbits, like the music she listened to to get pumped up for scenes in The Great Gatsby (LMFAO’s “Party Rock Anthem”) and the fact that Leonardo DiCaprio wrote her notes and signed them as Gatsby. Aw. More
Last night in NYC, costume designer Catherine Martin and Miuccia Prada threw a huge splashy star (and fashion people)-studded cocktail party to celebrate Prada’s contributions to the upcoming Baz Luhrmann joint, The Great Gatsby. So, so many fancy people were there, including Gatsby stars Carey Mulligan and Isla Fisher, along with Katy Perry, Florence Welch, Alexa Chung, Maggie Gyllenhaal and many more. More
More clips are out from The Great Gatsby, which indicate it will probably be the worst date movie ever! That’s true in spite of the fact that it keeps being billed as the biggest romance in the history of the world. We’ve already decided that your wedding is never going to compare to it, but let’s look at this new picture where Leonardo DiCaprio, as Gatsby, tricks out a room with flowers, macarons, and an extremely dopey looking Tobey Maguire.
