Carey Mulligan's Vogue Cover Channels 'Great Gatsby' Glam (PHOTOS)

Have you caught "The Great Gatsby" fever yet? If not, you're about to: Vogue has gone full-on Roaring Twenties for the May 2013 issue, casting "The Great Gatsby"'s Carey Mulligan as its cover star.

The timing is impeccable, of course, as Baz Luhrmann's adaptation of "The Great Gatsby" -- yes, the one with the Jay-Z soundtrack and Prada costumes -- is set to hit theaters on May 10. Mulligan plays Daisy, a part for which she seems perfect yet apparently was shocked to have landed. In the Vogue feature, she reveals that she actually found out about the part at the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards, just after presenting the awards with Karl Lagerfeld (as one does). She immediately went and celebrated with pals Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, partying "until the early hours."

Which sounds very "Great Gatsby" of her, come to think of it. But as many of us know, a long night of revelry often results in a less-than-gorgeous face in the morning. If we had to come up with one criticism of Carey's new cover, it's that her makeup does appear to have been laid on thick, resulting in an unfortunate aging effect.

Hey, at least the Oscar de la Renta dress fits like a glove. No cover outfit mishaps this time around.
