The Great Gatsby on everybody’s mind. First Karlie Kloss on the cover of the 20′s themed May issue of the Australian Vogue. Now Carey Mulligan for American Vogue, the actress who actually stars in the film as the main character Daisy playing against Leonardo DiCaprio. On the cover, she sports a lime green velvet dress that might as well be taken directly from the film, like the rest of the outfits of the spread featuring lots of peals, feathers and headgears.
Competing against the likes of Scarlett Johansson and Natalie Portman among others for the role, Carey Mulligan was to director Baz Luhrmann the right choice whom she got a call from just in the middle of the CFDA awards 2010, to announce the news.
See the rest of the gorgeous spread shot by Mario Testino, and read an interview with the actress on Vogue.com.
