Welcome to Carey Mulligan’s Colorful Fashion Circus

Carey Mulligan, W cover star and among the most affecting actresses we have today, seems to always be on the verge of quiet devastation: Consider her performances in Suffragette, Never Let Me Go, and the upcoming Wildlife, opposite Jake Gyllenhaal. But she also knows how to have fun, with one of the most electric onscreen smiles going. Here, see Carey laugh, frolic, play, and gaze meaningfully into a crystal ball with a colorful troupe of very fashionable circus performers in the English countryside, modeled by British It boys and girls, including Lennon Gallagher and Lady Mary Charteris.
