Peter Lindbergh for VOGUE
British style star Carey Mulligan is one of the few young actresses who has gained recognition for both her talent and her beauty, so it only makes sense that Vogue‘s October issue celebrates both. “Being on an American Vogue cover, everyday I am pinching myself. It’s beyond anything I ever thought would happen,” says the Oscar-nominated actress in this behind-the-scenes video, shot on location in the south of France. Captured for the October issue by renowned fashion photographer Peter Lindbergh dressed in fall/winter 2010 Haute Couture looks—driven overnight from the Paris runways to the shoot!—Carey brings some of the season’s finest couture back down to earth with her easy appeal. “She’s so utterly charming and we thought: [Let’s] Put her charm into a big fancy couture dress,” says Vogue creative director Grace Coddington, who styled the actress.
