After revealing a total overhaul of the entire magazine back in September, Vogue Australia has been powering through with newfound confidence. After a gorgeous Margot Robbie cover for December, Aussie Vogue‘s cover for January is just as beautiful. Fresh from the cover of UK Harper’s Bazaar, Carey Mulligan is the title’s first cover girl of 2018, taking to the rooftops of New York City for a rather cinematic cover shoot. The actress was photographed by Emma Summerton wearing a show-stopping Giambattista Valli gown, styled by Christine Centenera.
Members of our forums were instant fans. “LOOOOOOOVE this! THAT is what I want to see in Vogue around the world: the haute couture, the drama, the over-the-top clothes/hair and makeup and pure glamour,” declared Bertrando3.
“Ooooo lovely!” sighed Lucien122.
“Not sure why, but I like this a lot. The focus is just on her and the dress,” admired forum member Benn98.
Also quick to show the cover some love was Miss Dalloway: “She rarely does it for me in print, but this cover is wonderful.”
“I’ve never been an admirer of full-length cover images but this cover here is simply beautiful. Vogue Australia didn’t need a redesign but I do adore the look of this. The cover images feels so… fashion and celebratory that I cannot help but to love it. Nice one, Vogue Australia!” vogue28 applauded.
SallyAlbright felt the same way. “Love this, dramatic and cool cover. I actually think Carey is quite underrated because she keeps her personal life so quiet. She’s definitely one of the most talented actresses in her age group, and seems to be very normal and cool as well,” she voiced.
