It has been a year filled with hundreds of stunning magazine covers, amongst which some consolidated careers, others became legendary and a few remained nothing but beautiful one-month wonders.

English actress Carey Mulligan poses in a cathedral for Flaunt Magazine’s fabrication issue, which will be available on newsstands next week. Carey, who will be playing the role of Daisy in the upcoming film “The Great Gasby”, looks the classic beauty in a lace dress and bob hairstyle.

In androgynous slicked hair and a Miu Miu suit – not to mention the view down a circular tunnel (albeit one made of clear plastic, not the barrel of a gun) – you could mistake Carey Mulligan for a female James Bond.

The Great Gatsby trailer might have had some literary traditionalists up in arms with its use of modern music, but for others there’s nothing less than a sense of anticipation around what the costuming department will offer up in the way of 1920s fashion.
