Carey Mulligan Is Pretty In Pink on Vogue Australia’s January Cover

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.

Carey Mulligan was pregnant when offered Collateral

Carey Mulligan was six weeks pregnant when she was offered the lead in TV series Collateral and creator David Hare didn’t let her big news affect the production.

In the upcoming four-part thriller, the British actress plays Detective Inspector Kip Glaspie, who is investigating the spiraling consequences following the fatal shooting of a pizza delivery man.

She was offered the role when she was six weeks pregnant, but when she revealed the news to acclaimed playwright Hare, who she had previously worked with while pregnant on the revival of his play Skylight, he barely batted an eyelid.

“I wrote to him and said: ‘You’ll never guess, but I’m pregnant again. So can I do it pregnant?'” she recalled to Vogue Australia. “He said: ‘I don’t see why not.'”

Although her physical appearance would be changing, Hare, who was making his first original TV series, decided not to alter her character’s story.

“I loved that he didn’t rewrite my character, that he just didn’t make a fuss about it. It felt more real to life, because when you’re pregnant you do just go about your life,” she explained.

Carey gave birth to a son named Wilfred in August (17) and brought him along to her high-fashion cover shoot, where she would breastfeed him between shots. She is used to getting straight back to work after having a child – the promotion for her movie Suffragette started very soon after she welcomed her daughter Evelyn in September, 2015, with husband Marcus Mumford.

“We started press for Suffragette like three weeks after I gave birth to my daughter, so you just get back into it and it’s fine, because it’s not like filming, where you need to use your brain all the time. It’s much more about kind of showing up,” she added.

Besides the release of Collateral, a co-production between BBC Two and Netflix, Carey will also return to the stage in 2018 with one-women show Girls & Boys at London’s Royal Court Theatre, and she admits she is nervous about previews.

“In theatre, once you get through the initial previews, which are f**king unbearably nerve-racking – I don’t even know how I’m going to do this one – you kind of get in your stride and then it feels great,” she confessed.

Adele breaks down during Grenfell memorial at St Paul’s

Adele appeared incredibly emotional as she attended the memorial for the victims of the Grenfell Tower inferno at St Paul’s Cathedral on Thursday.

The 29-year-old Hello singer was joined by actress Carey Mulligan and her musician husband Marcus Mumford at the event which paid tribute to the 71 victims of the deadly fire at the west London 24-storey tower block in June.

Sitting among royals, politicians and residents, Adele broke down in tears over the incident, the site of which she attended less than 24 hours after the blaze tore through the building in what was deemed one of the worst fires in British history.

Adele joined more than 1,500 guests for the incredibly emotional service where bereaved families of the victims looked tearful as they made their way into the cathedral, with some carrying pictures of their lost loved ones.

Sitting between the husband and wife duo, the group broke down in tears as they heard the words offered to the heaving crowds paying tribute.

Following the June blaze, Adele made an appearance at Grenfell less than 24 hours after the fire swept through the tower block in just 15 minutes when a faulty fridge exploded, where nobody on its top three floors survived.

Tottenham-native Adele made a stealth appearance at a vigil being held to support victims and survivors, as a number of Twitter users shared images of the star at the scene where she was emotional and reportedly ‘hugged and comforted’ victims.
