Inside Llewyn Davis stars Carey Mulligan and Oscar Isaac on the red carpet during the BFI London Film Festival. Carey wears a vibrant yellow Dior cocktail dress of matte silk and wool crepe with contoured seams on the bodice, aren’t you glad you have me around for these things? The incredibly dashing Mr Isaac, whom you may (or may not) remember from his breakout role as Fartman in 2006′s Lenny the Wonder Dog, is being touted by HuffPo as Our Next Great Movie Star. Just so you know. Inside Llewyn Davis, btw, is the Coen Brothers’ latest film which follows a singer-songwriter trying to make it in New York’s folk music scene in the 1960′s. It also stars Justin Timberlake, Girls hunk Adam Driver, the always gorgeous Garrett Hedlund, and personal fave Stark Sands (from Broadway’s Kinky Boots and the camp classic Die, Mommy, Die!). Can’t wait! (Photo: Pacific Coast News)

It seems that all I’ve been posting is news about biopics. Is there something in the Hollywood drinking water? Anyway, Carey Mulligan is reportedly at the top of a very short list of actresses being considered to portray one of the most polarizing figures in the annals of politics, Hillary Clinton. At first, I was all for the casting. But THEN I learned Jessica Chastain was in the running too and my support immediately shifted towards the Zero Dark Thirty star. I have nothing against Mulligan, but Chastain is my guurrl and I gotta show her the love. Sorry. As per the movie, the title is simply Rodham (naturally) and word is that it’ll focus on Clinton’s younger years as a lawyer and her courtship with Bill. Can’t. Wait.
The Great Gatsby opens the Cannes Film Festival, causing a bit of a controversy. According to Sky News: “The opening slot is traditionally reserved for a world premiere but the lavish period drama has already been screened across the US. This is seen by some as a increasingly cosy relationship between Hollywood and the festival which was once the home of low-budget films.”. You’d never know it from the crowd reaction though. They went BANANAS when the AAA-list stars appeared at a photocall today. Carey Mulligan looks GORGEOUS in a strapless jumpsuit by Balenciaga – like a big black tongue is licking her torso! Leonardo DiCaprio poses with Baz Luhrman, and at first I was all excited because I thought Baz was wearing a harness. On closer inspection, though, it’s just a cardigan. Juror Nicole Kidman looked flawless (BELL SLEEVES!). Steven Spielberg, who is serving as jury president of this year’s Cannes, wore a ’20s-inspired newsboy cap; Isla Fischer, who plays the doomed Myrtle, was looking STUNNING; and Toby looked like he just escaped from the sanitarium.

I’ll save my nitpicking for this week’s podcast. Suffice it to say, The Great Gatsby is a SPECTACLE, a dazzling feast for the eyes. Every inch of every frame is STUFFED with orgasmic little details. This dress, for instance, elicited an audible gasp from the audience. Miuccia Prada made it, I believe, and those jewels look like they weigh a ton. Can you imagine how fantastic you’d feel wearing it? The heavier the outfit, the more fabulous the party, I always say. The pear-and-blue-diamond headband from Tiffany’s is nothing to sneeze at, either. ”I was wearing a lot of jewelry that was very, very expensive,” she told Harper’s Bazaar, “and I had a man following me around making sure I didn’t steal anything.” According to ONTD: “The luxury jeweler created an extraordinary collection of platinum-set diamonds and pearls for Mulligan to wear in the film, inspired by the art deco aesthetic of the flapper era – perfect for champagne-soaked soirées at Jay Gatsby’s West Egg mansion.” In addition to that priceless headband you see in this picture, Carey wears a blue sapphire ring with diamonds set in platinum, worth $66,300, a hand ornament with freshwater pearls and diamonds set in platinum, worth $83,000, and a Tanzanite ring with diamonds set in platinum, $30,200.
Gatsby star Carey Mulligan looks incredibly chic – love that jacket! – as she leaves her NYC hotel for an appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon; poor little rich girl Athina Onassis de Miranda competes in the 103rd edition of the CSI 5 equestrian show jumping in Madrid; Woody and his old lady, Soon-Yi, go out for a stroll in New York; and Grumps McGee arrives at the Rolling Stones concert at the Staples Center in LA wearing his Canadian tuxedo.
