Shame's Carey Mulligan flaunts her gorgeousness on January's W cover -- can she be any more perfect?
Inside the issue, the British actress does what she does best: acts! Mulligan gets dramatic crying under a pair of sunglasses in one photo, then she's all smiles with a Disney princess-like chipmunk resting on her shoulder in another. Another pair of cinematic images feature her looking rather stylishly breathtaking. Then there's the random one where she looks like Twiggy.
Check out the photos after the jump!

Carey Mulligan hates wearing revealing clothes. The actress says she feels "self-conscious" when she wears outfits that are too short or tight and likes to don clothes she feels comfortable in.
"I don't like wearing tight things and I'm self-conscious about clothes that are too short. Doing the red-carpet stuff is intimidating enough, so I'm wearing a lot of Prada, as the clothes are a perfect shape for me, because I'm bottom-heavy. Or else, I wear unconventional things, because then it feels as if I'm putting on a costume."
As well as feeling nervous on the red carpet, Carey hates posing for photo shoots, saying, "I'm not great at having my photo taken, so I often look like I don't want to be there. Staring down the barrel of a camera feels quite unnatural."
The British beauty also refuses to bow to the pressure in Hollywood to slim down: "I don't want to look like an actor. I want to look like a normal person. Normal people don't go to the gym six times a week. After I had my appendix out, I went down to 50kg and I realized that my brain doesn't work when I'm that thin."
Lady Gaga has been named one of the world’s best dressed women.
The “Bad Romance” singer and cover girl - famed for her eccentric fashion sense - was included on Vanity Fair magazine’s annual International Best Dressed List and joined the likes of First Lady Michelle Obama, Carey Mulligan and Diane Kruger.
Lady Gaga was a newcomer on the list and was praised for her outlandish headwear and over-the-top outfits. Michelle made the list for the fourth consecutive year and won approval for being a trendsetter. “Michelle Obama plays a very important role in fashion right now. People who make the list are individuals. They don’t look like everyone else. They tend to be fashion leaders, not followers,” said Vanity Fair’s special correspondent Amy Fine Collins.
Actress Carey Mulligan was noted for her “existential pixie” look and mixing high street with designers. Samantha Cameron - wife of British Prime Minister - also made the list, becoming the first visibly pregnant woman to make the poll. Others included on the prestigious list include France’s First Lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, soccer star David Beckham, siblings Maggie and Jake Gyllenhaal and designer John Galliano.
She’s as sweet in person as she is on screen! Carey Mulligan has donated her BAFTAs dress to charity.
The 24 year-old actress wore the black and white Vionnet gown to the prestigious ceremony in February - where she was named Best Actress for her role in An Education - but has now given it to Oxfam, to help raise money for the charity’s women’s projects.
“I’m honored to be able to donate my BAFTA dress to support Oxfam’s work helping women living in extreme poverty across the world.”
The dress will be displayed in a temporary Oxfam shop in the basement of London department store Selfridges for a week from Friday, and will be auctioned off with a starting price of $65. Shoppers at the pop-up store will be helped by a group of high-profile women headed by singer Annie Lennox. Funds raised from the sale of the dress will go to Oxfam’s women’s projects across the world including Bangladesh, India, Sri Lanka, Democratic Republic of Congo, West Africa and South Africa. The projects help support and protect vulnerable women by campaigning against violence, giving them the chance of an education and helping in the fight against HIV and AIDS.
An Education‘s Carey Mulligan may be relatively new to the whole awards season business, but that doesn’t mean she hasn’t formed her opinions.
Although she’s been offered valuable advice from one of the most respected names in the fashion industry, the Academy Award nominee claims she won’t be using it at the upcoming ceremony.
“Anna [Wintour] said I should wear short for the Oscars,” Mulligan said about Vogue‘s editor-in-chief. “I was like ‘No, that is so not what I had in my head when I was six years old!’”
Ignoring a suggestion from Ms. Wintour herself? Let’s hope Carey isn’t committing
