This summer Baz Luhrmann, the ever innovative and flamboyant Australian director, will release The Great Gatsby remake starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire and Carey Mulligan. Luhrmann’s movies usually define an era through detailed and dazzling costumes, with close attention being paid to the classic grandeur of the setting and his latest installment will definitely be a must see.
For those of you who want to live in a real life Gatsby moment (with all the whimsy and none of the drama) the ever-dapper Michael Arenella and His Dreamland Orchestra invite you to join them on Governor’s Island on June 16th and 17th for the 7th Annual Jazz Age Lawn Party. Widely anticipated by vintage admirers and summer enthusiasts alike, it is assured to be one of the most memorable parties of 2012.
The whole afternoon will consist of live music and dance, dance lessons, picnicking, games, and would not be complete without some mouthwatering St. Germain cocktails.
