Michael Thompson photographed Carey Mulligan for the cover of W’s January 2012 issue. Edward Enninful styled Carey in ethereal winter white lingerie, and captions advertise her as a “Naughty but Nice” actress who is shedding her good-girl image. Inside the issue we can expect a From Jazz Age to Space Age editorial photographed by Nick Knight with model Alexa Wright, and a Best in Class editorial featuring Cara Delevigne, Jourdan Dunn, Lily Donaldson and Nyasha Matonhodze photographed by Emma Summerton.
“That's one gorgeous and sexy cover,” Ives927 posted.
Catherine88 wrote, “I really like it. It's feminine and sexy. Carey looks absolutely beautiful there.”
Melancholybaby commented, “I like the cover even though the text is a tad too much. Excited to see Knight's and Summerton's editorials with the S/S collections!”
Once again, W does a romantic, atypical celebrity cover like no one else.
