"Beautiful Fools" Arrives2 of 14
With The Great Gatsby arriving theaters, we've all got flapper fever. Enjoy even more of the Roaring Twenties with this book. The historical novel delves into the tumultuous marriage of F. Scott Fitzgerald and his wife, Zelda, and a final attempt to mend it during a trip to Cuba.
RiRi Woo Launches3 of 14
Add some color to your lips with Rihanna's new lipstick, RiRi Woo, part of the singer's collaboration with MAC. The red shade inspired by her (former) favorite MAC lipstick, Ruby Woo. Look for it online and at Rihanna's Diamonds Tour concerts—if you happen to be there.
"Scatter My Ashes at Bergdorf's" Opens4 of 14
Take a behind-the-scenes look at the iconic store with this documentary, opening this month in limited release. The film not only showcases the famous designers it helped create, but also profiles some of the store's elite clientele, including Jackie Kennedy, Elizabeth Taylor and John Lennon.
"Great Gatsby" Opens5 of 14
Baz Luhrmann's latest film promises to be a visual stunner—Leonardo DiCaprio playing Gatsby is just icing on the cake. The movie may be set during the flapper era, but true to form, Luhrman chose a modern soundtrack with tracks from the likes of Jay-Z, Beyonce and will.i.am.
Clean Up Your Room Day6 of 14
Spruce up your space in honor of this national occasion. The best place to start: with making your bed. According to a survey of 68,000 people, those who made their bed each morning were more likely to be happy than non-bed-makers.
Mother's Day7 of 14
We know, we know: Every day is Mother's Day. But just in case you haven't told your mom how much she means to you in a while, here's your opportunity to do it. A thoughtful gift never hurt either.
"Inferno" Arrives8 of 14
Dan Brown, author of The Da Vinci Code and Angels & Demons, releases his newest book Inferno today. The release date is no accident. It's a clue to the book's plot. "It is written 5-14-13, which read backwards 3.1415—the value of pi,” Suzanne Herz, a Doubleday senior vice president, told The Wall Street Journal in April. Let the sleuthing begin.
Cannes Begins9 of 14
The film festival hits the French Riviera this week as 19 films vie for the coveted Palme d'Or. The Great Gatsby is set as the opener even though it's not in the running for an award. Other films receiving buzz as the competition heats up: Only God Forgives with Ryan Gosling, a new film by the Coen brothers and two films by director Roman Polanski.
"American Idol" Finale Begins10 of 14
America crowns its 12th Idol tonight as part of a two-part series. As much as we've enjoyed the talented male performances, we definitely like the girl power that's made it to the finals. The guys' winning streak over the past five seasons was in need of a shake-up.
Daft Punk Album Release11 of 14
The wait is over. After all the media buildup, complete with mysterious 15-second commercials and Coachella Jumbotron teasers, Daft Punk is finally releasing their fourth studio album, Random Access Memories. The enigmatic French dance duo have reportedly enlisted the talents of Pharrell Williams, Nile Rodgers, and Panda Bear, among others. And if their newest single is any indication, the seven years we've waited will be worth it.
DWTS Finale12 of 14
It's a mad rhumba to the finish as Dancing With The Stars' final couples await the results. Will this season stick to the trend of athlete domination? The professional athletes who have competed on the show have a 47 percent greater chance of winning, as calculated by The Wall Street Journal.
"Arrested Development" Returns13 of 14
Start warming up for the chicken dance. The ever-eccentric Bluth and Funke families return from a seven-year hiatus with the series' comeback season airing on Netflix. Since you've waited long enough for season 4, Netflix eliminated the wait between episodes. All 15 are available today.
Memorial Day14 of 14
Pause to remember those who died while serving our country. Memorial Day—once known as Decoration Day—originally honored Civil War soldiers. Since then, it's expanded to include those who have died in any war.
