Remember when Anna Wintour asked Oprah Winfrey to lose 30 pounds before she could be on the cover of Vogue? Well, looks like Vogue's not bothering to ask anymore—and it doesn't even matter if the clothes don't fit. Carey Mulligan, who's on the cover of the magazine's October issue is, apparently, swathed in a towel from the waist down in the photo. "It looks so glamorous but all of the clothes that had come in from Paris were sample sizes,” Mulligan said. “The cover dress was very pretty but wouldn’t go over my a***. Sample size is very, very tiny. I’m actually wearing a towel around my waist and the bottom is clipped up because I couldn’t fit.” [Daily Express]
