It looks like Vogue editors everywhere are crazy-excited for the coming of the Gatsby. Just last week we saw supermodel Karlie Kloss on the cover of Vogue Australia, rocking one of Prada‘s many designs for The Great Gatsby movie. And now Carey Mulligan, who’s taking on the role of Daisy Buchanan in the film, is covering American Vogue. I love this vintage-styled cover and the accompanying photos! Click inside for more!
Carey Mulligan As Daisy Buchanan For Vogue:
Fashionista has a few highlights from the interview:
• She beat out Scarlett Johansson, Michelle Williams, Blake Lively, Keira Knightley, and Natalie Portman for the role of Daisy.
• She found out she got the role after taking the stage at the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards with Karl Lagerfeld, via a phone call from Baz Luhrmann. She immediately started crying in front of everyone and then went partying “until the early hours” with the Olsen twins. “I won’t go into details, but let’s just say she went from being a bit Daisy to being more Zelda Fitzgerald,” says Luhrmann. “The thing about little Mulligan is she’s physically very gamine, she’s got this beautiful innocence in her face, but there is a bit of a wild streak in her—a bit of Zelda, a bit of the zany.”
If the story confirms anything it’s that Mulligan is winning over everyone. The profile is filled with glowing praise from the likes of Jake Gyllenhaal, Tobey Maguire, and Leonardo DiCaprio–who commend her both for her alluring personality and undeniable talent. She’s clearly going to be a big star.
This spread is too fab. That second photo is absolutely scrumptious. We are going to be so taken in by the costume designs of this piece; it’s gonna be epic!
I really have loved Carey‘s work over the years (Shame, Drive, An Education); I cannot wait to see her transform into Daisy. If she beat out Keira Knightley and Michelle Williams for this role, than I think we can definitely expect great things.
