living in: midnight in paris

by amym

Leave it to Woody Allen’s newest flick, Midnight in Paris, to send me screaming for a Parisian vacation (preferably in the 1920s). Under normal circumstances, Gertrude Stein’s apartment filled with the likes of Picasso and Hemingway is off-limits, but I’ll happily suspend my disbelief to tag along with Owen Wilson. — Amy M.

The next set of stills and the second roundup continue after the jump . . .

There is no denying that Paris in the 1920s is one of those sparkly decades that can do no wrong. Getting to attend a cocktail party at the famed Parisian taxidermy shop Deyrolle, in the 20s, no less? Probably not going to happen, except in dreamland. But thanks to Allen, we now know how to fake it. I’ll take two of everything, Hemingway included.
