Runway To Virtuoso Awards – Carey Mulligan In Prada

Carey Mulligan was honoured for her stand-out performance in “An Education” at the Virtuoso Awards at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival this weekend.

I’ve felt very lukewarm to Carey’s red carpet choices lately, but this is more like it.

The Prada loving Brit actress looks beautiful wearing a pink beach print satin dress from Prada’s Spring 2010 collection with what appears to be a matching clutch.

The dress is quite obviously modified from the runway and in this case very much for the better.

I love her hair here. She doesn’t have many options with it, but on this occasion it looks lighter and like more attention has been paid to it.

Overall I’m lovin’ it.

With all this Carey/Prada love, could a campaign be on the horizon or could this simply be the equivalent of a Herrera/Zellweger collabo?

Either way I’m happy as it’s a perfect fit.

    The moment I saw this, I thought… finally! Carey looks so cute and the color matches her hair so well.

    But I have one request, I hope the dress was shorter. She would’ve looked even cuter.

    I absolutely love this outfit on Carey!
    I just can’t help wondering if the dress would look better with an inch off the bottom.

    She looks adorable in this light shade of pink.

    LOVE it! Love the dress, love the clutch, love the girl! I can’t wait to see what she wears at the Oscars!

    I really like this look on her and she is actually smiling! My one tiny problem is that the skirt seems just a little too long; it should stop just above the knee. But that might actually be an illusion from the angle the picture was taken.

    Love it! Her smile is so beautiful and her haircut is very cute. The dress is very pretty.

    sooooooooooo cute. What lovely young girl.

    I really don’t mind that she’s picking a lot of Prada and Lanvin because it suits her and IMO, it’s never repetitive. I love the print on this dress. I also love her hair here, for some reason.

    Best dressed worthy.

    Awesome! Perfection. Those colours are great on her, and while I did at first think it would have looked better shortened a bit, on second thought, I’m really loving the demure length, which suits her individual style, which so many young actresses lack desperately.

  12. Michelle February 8, 2010 at 20:49 #

    This is much better! I’m not a fan of the color, though.

    Gorgeous, Carey reminds me a cute and delicate princess !

      Totally agree! I love Carey and can we have her BDOTW? :D

        yes, she should be

    There’s something about this girl that doesn’t do it for me.
    Very cute dress though. Def better than the runway.

    Prada fits her so well. She looks very good in this, the colours go very well with her hair.

  16. nicky February 9, 2010 at 08:04 #

    she looks really cute. i love the colour of the dress. i still think the dress couldve been better fitted…

  17. Jasmine February 9, 2010 at 09:47 #

    Far prefer the runway version. This looks frumpy to me.

  18. Ksenia February 15, 2010 at 00:17 #

    Carey is sweet and do d’mn cute here I am not getting cavities. This dress was actually like some of the chic 1960′s sheath and frock dresses she wore in An Education.

    This is perfect for Carey, I now do not expect less.
