“An Education” New York Premiere

Carey Mulligan has become SO interesting to watch on the red carpet lately as she’s fearless.

Many newcomers may have picked something safe for a big premiere, but Carey thought stuff that I’m going to wear this gladiatorial Prada Fall 2009 studded dress and steal the headlines.

And she did.

Only the somewhat safe pieces have been worn from this collection, so I really admire Carey as she really went for it.

Many will mock her and I’m sure many will hate this look, but I applaud the British actress.

You would’ve expected Maggie Gyllenhaal to have stood out at this premiere being the bigger star.

But I guess since she isn’t actually in this movie and was only there to support her husband Peter Sarsgaard last night, she didn’t want to outshine the Carey on her big night.

Maggie opted for a sleek strapless black Prada jumpsuit and a large black clutch.

Very simple, yet very elegant.

      I agree, and just to say I love the crisscross belt and shoes.

    I like Carey’s look. Maybe it’s the angle of the shot, but she looks kinda old.

    From the Thakoon dress to the Lanvin dress to the Prada dress,Carey Muligab is on fire!
    Its great that’s she is almost a lock for an Oscar nomination so we may see a lot of her this season!!

    Carey looks amazing. Would be best dressed if it wasn’t for Dita. Definitely a contender.

    I LOVE Maggie Gyllenhaal’s jumpsuit. It’s so simple but it’s gorgeous.

    Insanely gorgeous girls, insanely unflattering outfits.
    Carey is drowning in Prada (way to big for her!), while Maggie’s pants seem like something that would get the Project Runway girls eliminated.
