Dianna Agron Covers the New 60s issue of Nylon.

For the millions of fans who watch Glee every week, Dianna Agron is the amusingly cruel and jaggedly sweet recovering cheerleader Quinn Fabray. But as we learned during our days with Agron in California, the actress behind TV’s most complex Queen Bee is thoughtful, mature, and more into photography than playing mind games. As her new website, You, Me, and Charlie, gears up for launch next week, we asked Agron to describe her online venture, and what else happens after the Glee Live! tour…

On her new website, You and Me and Charlie: “It’s mainly arts-based, but it’s also a forum for people to love and support each other. I realized that just by posting something, I can really influence someone’s day.”

On her Glee alter ego: “Especially in the beginning, [reporters] really wanted us to be like our characters, to simplify things… I was playing a well put-together popular character, and they were trying to push me into it, like that had been my entire life. And the whole time, my teenage self was crying at that.”

On her actual high school persona:
“We watched Practical Magic and all of those movies, like The Craft. My friend’s mom had all these Stevie Nicks outfits, and we’d gypsy dance in her living room and have seances. We’d mix all these things from the refrigerator together and we’d look at it and be like, ‘This means you’re going to find true love when you’r 18 years old’.”

On her Glee audition:
“They were going to scrap the character but Robert [Ulrich, the casting director] asked for one more chance. I went in and read, and they called me bak two days later, and he told me to come back and straighten my hair, and wear something sexy. I was like, ‘First of all, what is…”sexy”?’…I went to like, a CVS, and bought a straightener and straightened it at Starbucks.”

On Quinn Fabray’s future: “Essentially, I’m a senior, so, I’ll probably graduate this year.”

Katharine McPhee’s stunning makeup from last night’s “Christmas in Rockefeller Center”

I watched “Christmas in Rockefeller Center” last night on NBC, and one thing that stood out to me (more than the strange music video starring Justin Bieber and Mariah Carey) was Katharine McPhee’s STUNNING makeup. Once I saw it – I knew I HAD to have it.  She wore this gorgeous nude color eyeshadow that glittered, and it looked so glamorous. Not cheap looking at all! She topped the eye shadow with a thick black eye liner, and the look was beyond gorgeous.

I knew I had to figure out what she was wearing – so I took to Twitter – and it looks like I’m not the only one who was asking! Her top tweet read: “4 those who asked abt my eye shadow last nt…my makeup artist explains…”@Beau_Nelson: She’s got pretty sparkly eyes courtesy of@CHANEL

Her makeup artist continued; “She also has pretty matte rose lips by @JoeFreshNY and black liquid liner by @COVERGIRL. And can we talk about her beautiful skin? @shuuemura nobara stick! My favorite! Shimmery love lust blush from @tomford finishes the look.”

I went digging further and found that Katharine is wearing Illusion D’Ombre Long Wear Luminous Eyeshadow in Fantasme. It is GORGEOUS. I’m ordering mine now, have to have it.

This intensely shimmering long-wear eyeshadow offers true versatility. An innovative gel texture that is both soft and cushiony allows it to be worn as eyeshadow or eyeliner. Includes a specially designed shadow/liner brush, developed specifically for this unique formula.

Go get it yourself! $36

On the Set: The Great Gatsby

I am so excited for this movie! It’s one of my favorite books and with Baz Luhrmann directing and this amazing cast I am really hoping they can do justice to the book. Very excited to see all the beauty and fashion inspiration that comes from this film set in the roaring 20′s.

Bax Luhrmann’s Great Gatsby

This adaptation of F.Scott Fitzgerald’s classic is anticipated by literature fans in the same way its chief protagonist Jay Gatsby lusts after the unattainable object of his affections is in the novel.

Their longed for union turns out to be a tragic disappointment, but from the looks of things, this sumptuous film will be anything but.

A beautiful Sydney Summer is providing the backdrop for a floral wonderland of a set at the city’s Centennial Park, which has been dressed up to represent New York’s Long Island 86 years ago.

Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire and Carey Mulligan looked sensational on the set of The Great Gatsby in Sydney today.

Leonardo DiCaprio plays the self-made man, who amasses a mysterious fortune to gain the love of rich, spoiled Daisy Buchanan (played by Carey Mulligan), only to be destroyed by her – and her wealthy, boorish pillar of the establishment husband.

It’s set in 1922, seven years before the Wall Street Crash that led to the Great Depression, and centres on this futile tragedy of an ordinary man trying to work his way into the privileged elite.

It’s a fitting narrative for our straightened times, but in these scenes 37-year-old DiCaprio’s Gatsby is still enjoying the perks of the nouveau riche as he strolls through a Summer garden.

What a gent: Leonardo is dressed finely but Gatsby isn’t who he appears to be, and is used by the party crowd then cast aside

DiCaprio looks incredible as the socially awkward protagonist who dresses to compensate for his lowly birth in a cream suit with brown fitted waistcoat accessorised with a cane.

What a flapper: Carey Mulligan’s outfits in the film are sure to set trends for next Summer

The crew have finished off the look by setting his hair in a wave, to achieve that Roaring Twenties party style.

But it’s Carey’s party girl wardrobe that’s sure to spawn imitations, and this scene’s breathtaking ensemble is no exception.

The British belle looks incredible in lavender lace with cornflower-tinged frills and matching fingerless gloves, a coordinated hat was spied in her hand.

But even in this symphony of wonderment, her Mary Jane shoes in purple and gold stand out.
