Happy birthday to novelist, socialite, and flapper extraordinaire Zelda Fitzgerald. The Jazz Age icon, remembered most for her wild antics and tumultuous relationship with partner and author F. Scott Fitzgerald, wrote the semi-autobiographical novel Save Me the Waltz. Since her death in 1948, the “proto-Manic Pixie Dream Girl” remains a much mythologized figure whose creative contributions are often overlooked for those of her husband. For her 116th birthday, however, we’re keeping things light by looking at Fitzgerald’s life in photographs — and especially those times she definitely had more fun than you.
