Carey Mulligan on the red carpet

Rex

Carey Mulligan is the leading lady du jour right now as epic spectacle The Great Gatsby has taken off in all its splendour on the big screen.

The English actress first made her film debut as Keira Knightley's sister in Pride and Prejudice in 2005  (was it really so long ago?) and has appeared in nothing but critically acclaimed hits since then - including Never Let Me Go, An Education and Drive – alongside InStyle favourite Ryan Gosling.
