I’ve added three additional photos to Session 019 as well as a new/old photoshoot which I’m going to assume was taken on November 9th as Carey is wearing the same outfit and hairstyle as Session 023 and Session 025, just with a different background and lighting Thanks to Roberta for those!
Appearing in a small British indie film that makes a splash at the Sundance Film Festival would be considered a success for any actress. But for 25-year-old Carey Mulligan, her starring role in 2009’s An Education marked the beginning of an 18-month blur of red carpets and revelry.
“It sort of feels like none of it really ever happened,” says the actress, whose Oscar and Golden Globe nominations for that film propelled her to the top of many directors’ must-cast lists.
Looking back on the glitz and glamour, Mulligan says she would have liked to have been less nervous about the whole thing.
“It was a little bit scary,” she confesses. “In retrospect, I wish I’d just had a drink and had more fun.”
While industry rumors abound about Mulligan appearing in everything from Ridley Scott’s 3-D Alien prequel to Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby, her roles in this year’s Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, directed by Oliver Stone, and Mark Romanek’s “Never Let Me Go” are keeping her on the minds of moviegoers and academy voters alike.
Despite the high-profile casting rumors, she insists that earning an Oscar nomination didn’t result in being buried in juicy scripts. It’s been a gradual build rather than an overnight shift.
I’ve added HQ scans that were missing from the gallery – Carey covering October’s edition of Vogue, April’s Interview and May’s Flair. Enjoy!
Thanks to Emma in the comments for alerting us to a gorgeous photo of Carey auditioning for the role of Daisy Buchanan in The Great Gatsby. You can read the accompanying article right here.
Huge thanks to Annika for the scans of Carey from December’s edition of Glamour Germany just for Carey Mulligan Online!
Last night Carey was in New York for the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards, where she also was told by director Baz Luhrmann that she had won the role of Daisy Buchanan in his upcoming film The Great Gatsby! She looked amazing and showed off her edgy fashion credentials in a sequined embroidered dress from the French fashion label’s Fall/Winter Haute Couture Collection, along with some kick-ass booties. Congrats Carey!
