It’s not enough that Baz Luhrmann (Romeo + Juliet, Moulin Rouge) is directing the savvy new film version of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby, but none other than Jay-Z has been appointed as the executive producer for the roller-coaster-ride soundtrack that is just beginning to leak to all of us starry-eyed fans. In fact he’s pieced together such a dazzling array of artists, impressive covers, and original songs we’ll excuse Jazzy for giving himself the opening track (and his wife the second).
Nepotism aside, the stunning Lana Del Rey released the first music video of the bunch today, and Florence + The Machine’s “Over the Love” will you hit you harder than Gatsby’s grill.

The Great Gatsby trailer (extended version) opens up with Florence + the Machine, and just sails on from there!
Between The Hurt Locker taking home best picture and Best Actress winner, Sandra Bullock, giving one of the best and funniest acceptance speeches, I could have gone to bed happy after catching the Oscars last night. Yet the red carpet also put on a great show, sporting many pieces that were daring and inventive in all the right ways. Here are just a couple of my favorite looks:
Show Stopping Skirts
Love it or hate it, most couldn’t keep their eyes off of Zoe Saldana’s ruffled lavender hemline. Another head turner was Vera Farmiga’s sculpted waves of fuchsia which fanned perfectly down the skirt. Also, soft and flowy ruffled tiers of fabric looked feminine and romantic on stars like Elizabeth Banks.
Sandra Bullock’s bejeweled bodice was so elegant, especially paired with her perfect red pout and sleek hair. Charming Carey Mulligan truly pulled off the whimsical detailing of forks and keys on her black strapless Prada. I loved it, and hey, it makes a great conversation piece!
Rachel McAdams sported a strapless beauty that looked like a breathless watercolor painting while Maggie Gyllenhaal looked cool, chic and stylishly put together in her vibrant printed bodice.
With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, we’re wondering which new celebrity couples will be celebrating the romantic holiday together. Here are a few of the love birds out and about.
Taylor Swift and Taylor Lautner
Katy Perry and Russell Brand
Renee Zellweger and Bradley Cooper
Carey Mulligan and Shia LaBeouf
