Frisky Q&A: Great Author Sara Benincasa Talks Young Adult Fiction, Zelda Fitzgerald & Women In Comedy

A show of hands: who had to read The Great Gatsby in school?

Most of us, right? You’re probably overly familiar with the tale of Jay Gatsby and Daisy Buchanan, if not from high school English class then from the Baz Luhrman spectacle in theaters this past summer. I hope you still have…

Zelda Fitzergerald Gets Her Own Artisanal Ice Cream

Capitalizing on “The Great Gatsby” has reached a jazzy new peak with limited edition ice cream in the spirt of Zelda Fitzgerald, the wife of Gatsby author F. Scott Fitzgerald. The Zelda Collection by Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams in Ohio and Tennessee opportunistically celebrates the writer and bon vivant’s “free spirt” with four different flavor…

Style Showdown: Which Look Do You Love Best On Carey Mulligan?

I’ve been counting down the days until “The Great Gatsby” hits theaters for the past, like, year and a half. Now that we’re getting down to the wire (one week!), I couldn’t possibly be more excited. Baz Luhrmann’s brand-new adaptation is already polarizing and nobody has even seen it yet, but if there’s one component…

The Good, The Bad & The Totally Meh: The “Great Gatsby” Premiere

This “Great Gatsby” movie’s been supposed to be coming out for, like, a year now, and I’m super happy it’s almost here, mostly so I can stop receiving PR pitches every five seconds about “Great Gatsby”-style or “Great Gatsby”-themed accessories, the vast majority of which are not at all related to anything Roaring ’20s i…

The Tobey Maguire-Leonardo DiCaprio Giggle Fit That Delayed Filming Of “The Great Gatsby”

Once upon a time, in the long-past golden era of Hollywood (the late ’90s) there was a group of famous friends called the pussy posse. Mostly actors who’d grown up auditioning together, the group consisted of Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Lukas Haas and Kevin Connelly as well as magician David Blaine and screenwriter/director Harmony Korine. The young friends spent much of their time chasing women,…

Here’s Beyoncé And Andre 3000’s Cover Of Amy Winehouse’s “Black To Black”

It’s finally here: the Andre 3000 and Beyoncé cover of Amy Winehouse’s song “Back To Black” for the “Great Gatsby” soundtrack.

I’m going to say something controversial: I don’t like it. It’s creepy. Imma let you finish, Andre 3000, but Beyoncé should have just sang the whole song herself.

But judge for…

The Plaza Introduces “The Great Gatsby”-Themed Suite

Our “The Great Gatsby” obsession just reached a fever pitch: the Plaza Hotel in New York City has debuted a suite that will transport you right to the Roaring Twenties. Filled with grey and sea foam tones, Deco-furniture and chandeliers, the Fitzgerald Suite — so named for The Great Gatsby author F. Scott Fitzgerald and…

I Have Yet To Fully Grasp The Amazingness Of This New “Gatsby” Trailer

I am physically incapable of containing my excitement for the new “The Great Gatsby” movie. I want to YELL ABOUT IT. It’s bound to be divisive, of course, but “Gatsby” is one of my favorite books of all time, and considering the first Hollywood adaptation was a poorly-acted flop, I really think F. Scott Fitzgerald&#8217…

This Week In Style: Karl Lagerfeld Shows Lesbian Brides On The Runway

As the closer to the Chanel couture show, Karl Lagerfeld sent two wedding dress-clad female models down the runway hand in hand to show his support of marriage equality. The Associated Press was quick to coin the demonstration “lesbian couture,” and we want to know what the hell that means. [Fashionista]
As if…

There’s A New Trailer For “The Great Gatsby”!

I will never forgive the Movie Premiere Scheduling Powers That Be for pushing back “The Great Gatsby” until May 2013 instead of the holiday season in 2012. Don’t they know that’s five months from now?!?! They dropped one trailer last May — yes, a full year in advance — and just dropped another teasing “Gatsby&#8221…

Ain’t No Party Like A Gatsby Party Cuz A Gatsby Party Don’t Stop

We’ve been waiting not-so-patiently for the Christmas release date of the latest movie incarnation of “The Great Gatsby” ever since we saw the amazing trailer (seriously, could time move any slower?!). In the meantime, we’re going to show our Gatsby street cred with this amazing tank top, which should instantly make us the coolest attendee…

All The Lovely Looks From “The Great Gatsby” Trailer

So, I have mixed feelings about the trailer for Baz Luhrman’s upcoming adaptation of “The Great Gatsby.” On the one hand, Leo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan in period costumes retelling one of the greatest suppressed love stories ever. On the other, why does Luhrman always create an anachronistic soundtrack that completely pulls you out of the…

“The Great Gatsby” Trailer Is Here And We’re All Obsessed

You guys. Stop what you’re doing right now and watch the trailer for “The Great Gatsby.” We’ve got Leonardo DiCaprio as Gatsby, Carey Mulligan as Daisy Buchanan, and Tobey Maguire as the naif, Nick Carraway. But forget about the cast, because they aren’t even factoring into my obsession with this two-minute trailer.  The 1920s’ clothes!

5 Things You Should Know About Joel Edgerton

We have ourselves a new Tom Buchanan, folks. It has just been announced that Aussie actor, Joel Edgerton, will be replacing Ben Affleck in Baz Luhrmann’s 3D version of “The Great Gatsby.” Affleck, who dropped out because of scheduling conflicts, is just the kind of A-Lister we would expect to see amongst the all-star cast,…

“The Great Gatsby” … In 3D

Step aside, Robert Redford and Mia Farrow. Baz Luhrman’s new onscreen version of “The Great Gatsby” keeps getting bigger and better. We were pretty pumped a few months ago when we heard that Leonardo DiCaprio would be taking on the role of everyone’s favorite social climber. Oh, and then we saw that adorable Carey Mulligan

Inspiration Board: Daisy Buchanan From “The Great Gatsby”

Hollywood is remaking “The Great Gatsby” and Carey Mulligan is set to play Daisy Buchanan, the attractive and shallow young woman who is the object of Jay Gatsby’s obsession. We’re truly excited for the 2012 version of “The Great Gatsby” because of its all-star cast, which includes Leonardo DiCaprio in the lead role, and the…

Leonardo DiCaprio To Play H. H. Holmes And Jay Gatsby

Leonardo DiCaprio is having a big moment at the … moment. He has been cast in the lead of two movies I cannot wait for—”The Great Gatsby” and “The Devil in the White City.”

Let’s start with “The Devil.”…
