Carey Mulligan Goes Technicolor Glam In ‘Flaunt’ Magazine

We’re seriously running out of words to describe the opulent, flawless style Carey Mulligan has been rocking lately to promote her equally-extravagant new film The Great Gatsby, but the actress’ brand new spread in Flaunt Magazine—while still lavish—lacks any hint of the film’s roaring ’20s vibe. We love yuh, Gatsby, and we DEFINITELY LOVE Catherine Martin’s costumes, but this is a welcome change. Carey poses in The Fabrication Issue in a variety of looks ranging from elegant and simple to artful and directional. Our favorite part of her look? Mulligan sports a severe, hard-edged bob with baby bangs that look veritably sculpted to her head. This fashion-friendly take on helmet hair is nothing like the more unfortunate looks at elementary school picture day. Trust. In our favorite ensemble from the shoot, Carey looks almost Victorian in an ultra-structured white gown with roses blooming from the neckline and an enormous bejeweled choker that resembles the branches of a gnarled old tree. Her makeup is understated and even mutes her features somewhat, with super light eyebrows and pale lips washing her out, but not completely.

The spread is vast, and shows Carey in all kinds of looks ranging from the more costumey to straight up glam, like this lavender draped gown that we’re positively having a springtime heart attack over. While it might look traditional to begin with, the off-center draped bodice over a lining that nearly matches Mulligan’s skin adds a little surprise to the otherwise just-pretty dress. It doesn’t end there, though! Check out all of the photos on Flaunt now.
