Carey Mulligan has scored so many covers this year it has behooved magazines to recycle shoots, thrice, rather than have her in for a new set up. The same Peter Lindbergh photo shoot, for example, was used for American Vogue October 2010, German Glamour November 2011, and French Elle November 2011. But this is actually a new cover and it’s nice to see some magazines aren’t cheap.
Well, here’s Mulligan covering W Magazine January 2012 looking as teary-eyed, as always. She looks pretty, if sad. The look’s used to great effect where she’s literally crying in one photo. But she kind of always pulls the same lorn face and it’s distracting.
