Carey Mulligan For Vogue US October 2010

Carey Mulligan is the October 2010 cover girl for American Vogue.

Grace Coddington styled the Peter Lindbergh shoot which sees Carey wearing Chanel, Christian Dior, Givenchy, Armani Privé and Valentino Couture Fall 2010 looks, plus a Balenciaga by Nicolas Ghesquière peony-print jacquard dress and a Nina Ricci silk-tulle-and-lace dress with velvet sash.

Carey has two movies due for release soon. “Never Let Me Go” and “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps”, but she’d love to star in “Glee”.

Unfortunately she’s been told she’s not famous enough yet. Maybe her new films will change all that.

Despite being quite petite Carey complained that her Couture wardrobe was too small even for her.

Here are some extracts from her interview with her stunning Couture editorial below.

On attending events with Shia LaBeouf: “Posing on the red carpet feels like you’re selling something that has nothing to do with you. If you do it with someone else, it’s like we’re saying, ‘Oh! We come as a pair! Would you like to buy both of us? We’re available for weddings and Bar Mitzvahs!”

On her fame: “I want to be in Glee, but I’m told I’m not famous enough to be a cameo yet.”

On her fitness routine: “I don’t want to look like an actress; I want to look like a person. Normal people don’t go to the gym six times a week . . .The thinnest I’ve ever been was after I had my appendix out, during the London run of The Seagull. I went down to 112 pounds and realized my brain doesn’t work when I’m that thin, so I can’t do my job. That’s why, when I came out here, I never had that whole Hollywood pressure thing. I never said I wanted to be a lead actress; I never said I wanted to be a film actress. This need to trump everyone bewilders me. I’m only 25. I’m not better than anyone. I just want to watch other people and learn to be good.”

On being recognized by fans: “I don’t want to be ‘known’ — I’m afraid of being a ‘personality.’ On a talk show, I feel I should just hold up a sign with the facts on it — and leave. It wouldn’t take more than a minute, and they’d have room for other guests. I want people to not recognize me, to think I’m a different actress, not remember me from what I did previously. If people have all those other pictures and stories associated with you, it’s added shit that means they have to work harder to believe you as a character.”

    She looks absolutely gorgeous!! Very doll-like face. Those gowns are incredible, particulary Dior. So dramatic.

    I have been waiting for thispost! Thankyou so much! I love the cover, she looks better than msot cover of US vogue do. I also really love her attitude, she sounds actually down to earth as opposed to pretending to be. The only thing that bothers me is the shoot is underwhelming for a couture shoot, they should leave couture to the professionals, although I do find the nina ricci and the dior red jacket particularly stunning.

    I was shocked this much of vogue was takin up by this spread. The gowns were gorgeous but i didnt love her in any of them. The best pic is the Givenchy.

      agree about the givency. i also liked the chanel and bright blue dior couture dress. the rest not so much.

    Grace Coddington’s work needs to be in a museum

    • Victoria September 30, 2010 at 07:57 #

      Haha I know what you mean! Totally agree. :)

  5. Moxie September 29, 2010 at 18:47 #

    Love the Givenchy. Her poses in the Dior and Valentino shots are almost identical. You’d think she’d switch things up or that the photographer would have.

  6. Jasmine September 29, 2010 at 19:05 #

    love love love! the pictures are as beautiful as what she says… love the humility in “I’m only 25. I’m not better than anyone”.

  7. currygirl September 29, 2010 at 19:11 #

    That cover is GORGEOUS! Love the styling…long live Grace Coddington!

    • Linda September 29, 2010 at 23:30 #

      Yes, the nicest one I’ve seen in ages.

      • Anna September 30, 2010 at 11:23 #

        I agree – cover looks fab. Loving the way the pixie cut is styled!

  8. wilwarin September 29, 2010 at 19:13 #

    she looks lovely and really beautiful, especially on the cover… at first i didn’t like her tham much, but lately i’m starting to fall in love with her…

  9. Victoria September 29, 2010 at 19:15 #

    Thanks for this FC! :D I loved this editorial so much, amazing!

  10. ioana September 29, 2010 at 19:24 #

    the givenchy photo is stunning and also the nina ricci … gourgeous dresses… and her I always tought of her as a granny but she is breath-taking in this shoot… loving the thick eyebrow/blond hairdo combo

  11. Eris September 29, 2010 at 19:46 #

    Oh, god. I love her so much.

    I sometimes start to find Carey boring and uninteresting, but then I see an interview of her and I end up desperatly charmed by the girl. She juste… have something, you know ?

    I adore the picture with the red Dior jacket, but I don’t like that the hat is on all those pictures. It makes it less extraordinary.

  12. Maddie September 29, 2010 at 20:01 #

    Cute editorial, but I was longing to see those Dior gowns on the red carpet. Hope we still get to see them.

    On a side note, I really appreciate all the work you do for us on this site FC. You work really hard and produce a great fashion website. :D

    • Fashion Critic September 29, 2010 at 20:10 #

      thanks Maddie xxxx

      That’s very kind of you to say that

  13. Chiara September 29, 2010 at 20:34 #

    Very pretty dresses but her poses are a little simple/boring

  14. Marvel September 29, 2010 at 20:35 #

    Well she is hardly A-List as any one these days can land a Vogue cover.

    Im not at all surprised Glee said no to her.

    I like the front cover but thats where the magic ends

  15. ~**juDee**~ September 29, 2010 at 20:45 #

    I’m not sold on the pictures but I do really admire and respect her frankness and openess-its so refreshing. Plus I know she’s beautiful so I’m not too disappointed that, picture-wise, the editorial wasnt the greatest. But I’m sure there’s more to come

  16. heather September 29, 2010 at 20:48 #

    I love the editorial and think she’s great, but had to laugh at her comments re being recognized by fans…if she’s so concerned, why’s she posing for Vogue?!

  17. michelle September 29, 2010 at 21:16 #

    i lilke that she is on the cover. beacause she is a phenemonal talent. i never really liked the whole alist thing which is just another term to describe celebrities ( someone who’s famous, but necesarily becasue of a specific/credible talent). the dresses are amazing but i agree with whoever, said she should’ve switched up her poses.

    FC you totally rock my world. *sending you an e-cake*

    • Fashion Critic September 29, 2010 at 21:38 #

      gratefully received :D

  18. easyBlake September 29, 2010 at 21:27 #

    I love her hair this way, the editorial, not so much.

  19. Ally September 29, 2010 at 21:28 #

    She looks great, but that hat should only have been featured in one picture…

  20. SarahV September 29, 2010 at 22:20 #

    She looks nice, but I’m not a fan.

  21. justme September 29, 2010 at 22:43 #

    She looks great in Givenchy in the b&w pic… and that’s it.
    There’s this wave of new young actors that believe that in order to be seen as genuine and only driven by their craft, they have to be awkward. Carey is one of them. It’s just contrived imo.

  22. Gretta September 29, 2010 at 23:34 #

    The gowns are just amazing. I think the problem is that I find myself looking at the couture instead of Carey in them if you know what I mean. They could be on a hanger and I’d still be in awe. Don’t think Carey brought the drama they so deserve.

  23. Jen September 30, 2010 at 02:06 #

    She looks so much like Michelle Williams sometimes it’s ridiculous.

  24. roxana September 30, 2010 at 07:48 #

    she is lovely.

  25. jes September 30, 2010 at 08:43 #

    I don’t know who Carey Mulligan is but she’s absolutely gorgeous and she works these gowns incredibly well.

  26. Fee September 30, 2010 at 15:27 #

    My first thought was that this is the most sense I have heard out of a twentysomething Hollywood actress in, maybe, ever.. but then like Heather my second thought was ‘hang on, what you doing in Vogue then??! :)

  27. Lee Ann September 30, 2010 at 17:08 #

    Stunning cover. I love grace coddington.

  28. Saara October 2, 2010 at 15:59 #

    The dresses are fabulous! Wow! Her… not so much. She’s not owning any of the dresses, she just has a blank stare. Armani prive pic was the only ok shot in my opinion. And I hate the hat.

  29. Amandy Fraenkel August 17, 2014 at 15:17 #

    Can someone please tell me the name of the blonde Chanel model on the first picture (the left one next to Carey Mulligan) ?
