The Great...Carey Mulligan

Just a short post today--a TV date with Glee (Gwyneth!) cut a bit into my posting time. (Did you see her? What did you think?)

Girls in cloche hats (for Dana)

Anyway, today I'm dreaming of a lovely summer party on the lawn, with bootleg gin and champagne, friends in seersucker and whites, girls in finger curls and cloche hats--playing croquet or maybe dancing the Charleston. The reason? Because Baz Luhrmann (Romeo and Juliette, Moulin Rouge) just cast the darling Carey Mulligan as Daisy Buchanan in his new production of The Great Gatsby! I can't think of a better choice for the role.

She was just perfect in An Education.

In Prada at the Oscars.


On this week's "Best Dressed of the Year" list.

What do you think? The perfect Daisy or would you have gone with someone else? And who's throwing the Gatsby Party???
