Carey Mulligan  laughed with a few friends yesterday as she ran errands around LA. The Vanity Fair cover girl  is laying low in California as she gears up to celebrate her first Valentine's Day  as half of one of Pop UK's favorite couples . Her boyfriend Shia LaBeouf  stepped out solo earlier this week to hit the gym  while he preps to run the LA marathon  to benefit a nonprofit veterans group. His skills could be used to walk fashion icon  Carey down the red carpet at this year's Oscars  — make sure to fill out Buzz's ballot  with your predictions about who will win!
