For May new stands Carey covered American Vogue and now for June news stands here she is on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar UK looking as stunningly ethereal as ever. The faded out pastel colours, blonde wispy hair, delicate pink flowers and structured girlie as can be Prada number all contribute to what may be one of my favourite Harper’s Bazaar covers of the year.
In the the inside editorial Carey dons pieces from the likes of Fendi, Bottega Veneta and Erdem as well as her husbands Hunter wellies.
In the issue hitting news stands today, Carey discusses playing Daisy, why she chose Prada on her wedding day and her prized note from Daniel Day-Lewis.
On playing Daisy in Baz Luhrmann’s ‘The Great Gatsby’:
“Daisy was difficult to work out, but so fun to play… Baz also gave me about seven biographies of Zelda [Fitzgerald] and a stack of love letters from Ginevra [King]. You can so easily see where Fitzgerald has taken Daisy from. Just the way Zelda and Ginevra wrote – there were lines we stole for the script.”
On why she chose to marry in a Prada wedding dress:
“I have worn a lot of Prada and always loved their clothes. I always felt very comfortable. They were the first designer house that ever lent me anything; I wore Prada to the Oscars. The people who work there are so lovely and really just non-scary fashion people.”
On Daniel Day-Lewis:
“He wrote me this beautiful handwritten note a couple of weeks afterwards just saying how nice it was to meet me and that he’d like An Education. His penmanship was beautiful. The note was the most beautiful thing. If my house was burning down I would save that. It is so precious.”
