Carey Mulligan graces the cover of 'W' magazine in their January 2012 issue. Despite looking very sexy on the cover, the spread itself is far more chic, with one shot inevitably being a tribute to Twiggy (above).
In the magazine, she talks about her 2011 film roles 'Drive' and 'Shame', both of which are intense movies, a departure from her previously 'safer' ingenue roles.
She is currently filming for 'The Great Gatsby' alongside Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey McGuire.
