Slowly but surely, we are getting more glimpses of Baz Luhrmann’s upcoming epic adaptation of The Great Gatsby – and it looks to be an absolutely gorgeous film! Another still has been released with Carey as Daisy, courtesy of Empire Online (thanks to Jess for the heads up), who also have an awesome 6-page cover of the film in their latest issue. Make sure you check it out!

I have been going through the gallery and trying to replace all the LQ/MQ pictures with HQ versions, so tonight I have replaced the screen captures of Carey from Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps and Public Enemies with high-definition versions instead. Enjoy!
Actress Carey Mulligan is urging members of the public to put on their walking shoes and support Memory Walk. In its eleventh year, Memory Walk is Alzheimer’s Society’s biggest annual fundraiser. Events will take place around the UK throughout September.
Carey, whose grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s eight years ago, is asking families and individuals to step out for a few hours and raise money to help support local people with dementia and their carers. A variety of entertainment and refreshments will be available making it a day to remember for the whole family.
There are 750,000 people with dementia in the UK. The money raised from Memory Walk will help to fund vital local services for people with dementia and their carers. Such services include day support and befriending which can radically improve people’s lives.
Memory Walk 2012 is being held by Alzheimer’s Society in partnership with Bupa. Walks will take place at various venues across England, Wales and Northern Ireland and are open to people of all ages, children to grandparents.
Kathryn Betts, from Alzheimer’s Society said: ‘Memory Walk is a fantastic way to spend a day. Families, friends, colleagues and individuals can walk together to raise money to help local people with dementia. Additionally an array of entertainment and refreshments will be available making it a day to remember for everyone who takes part.
‘Thanks to the support of Bupa, Memory Walk is able to support more people living with dementia through the vital funds that are raised.’

I know we already have these captures in DVD-quality, but as it is Carey’s breakout role, I felt that we definitely needed them in Blu-Ray quality as well! So, I have just added 1,480 gorgeous captures from An Education to the site – enjoy!

Hollywood actress Carey Mulligan is to front a PR campaign for dementia charity Alzheimer’s Society to raise awareness and extend its reach.
As part of Dementia Awareness Week, Mulligan, whose grandmother Margaret was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in 2004, hopes to “shine a light” on the condition, which affects one in three people over the age of 65.
Alzheimer’s Society wants to reduce the stigma around dementia and hopes that backing from a young A-list celebrity will help it reach new audiences and get people talking about it more openly. It has created a five point guide to help people learn more about the condition as part of its ‘Remember the Person’ campaign.
Speaking at an event to launch Dementia Awareness Week which runs from 20 to 26 May, Mulligan said: “I am committed to helping the Alzheimer’s Society in any way I can. My family and I rely on the help of organisations like Alzheimer’s Society to help us understand the disease and guide us in the care of my grandmother.
“By speaking about my grandmother’s dementia I hope to shine a light on the condition. This Dementia Awareness Week we are asking people to ‘remember the person’ by looking beyond someone’s diagnosis of dementia and engaging with them.’
Carey Mulligan’s custom-made Prada frock topped many a best dressed list for this week’s Met Ball. And now, if you’re lucky, it could work the same sartorial magic on you.
The actress and Met Ball co-chair, has put her silver and gold metal paillette dress up for sale on eBay, with a starting bid of $500.
Of course, Mulligan isn’t getting rid of the frock to make a quick buck–100% of the proceeds from the sale will benefit Oxfam, an international relief and development organization that creates lasting solutions to poverty, hunger, and injustice. In other words, you’ll be getting a show-stopping Prada dress and the satisfaction of knowing your purchase is helping to make the world a better place.
The dress went up for auction late last night and will be on the bidding block until May 19. So far there are six bids, hiking the price of the gown up to $1000–which is still, you know, not that bad for a one-of-a-kind Prada dress. And like we said: It’s for charity!
So if you’r a European size 38-40 (that’s a US 2-4), we suggest you put your bid in now. No telling, how high the stakes will get.
Last night was the rather dazzling Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala, which was the first event that the lovely Carey attended as a married woman! This year’s Benefit was celebrating the opening of the Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations exhibition and was co-chaired by Carey, Vogue editor Anna Wintour, and designer Miuccia Prada. She looked amazing in a Prada gold and silver degradé metal paillettes scaled halter neck dress, shoes, and bag, paired with Neil Lane jewellery. The first batch of pictures have been added to the gallery, with more on the way. Enjoy!
