I’m so excited to see Baz Luhrmann’s adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s beloved The Great Gatsby (opening in theaters May 10th).
In anticipation of the film, Vogue recently did a beautiful photo shoot of actress Carey Mulligan (or, Daisy Buchanan if you will) — and, the images will simply take your breath away. Who doesn’t love roaring twenties fashion?

“Land’s End,” the home that sat across the Long Island Sound from where Fitzgerald wrote his novel was demolished this past week to make way for five new, multi-million dollar houses. The developers who bought the estate report that the expenses to maintain such a palatial structure were too high, and sadly, it was condemned.
