Carey Mulligan in Vogue Looks Like a Cheeky Angel
I first started to pay attention to Carey Mulligan when An Education was released. She got a lot of press, and seemed to be genuinely intriguing. Her screen presence in An Education was literally mesmerizing. You could not take your eyes off her extremely expressive face. When I came across this spread in the January issue of Vogue (apart from Carey, completely disappointing. I could actually write a whole post on why the January 2010 Vogue is an embarrassment to Anna Wintour and Conde Nast, starting with that terrible cover), it was like a little ray of joy and light in an otherwise disappointing read. Anyway, these pictures display the fabulous quixotic nature of her beautiful, timeless face, how she is always and never herself. This shoot is a gorgeous display of fashion and art, and I love how Carey has thrown herself into it, rather than, as so many young female actresses are wont to do, staying safe and pretty. Love love love.
