I knew my initial feelings towards Carey Mulligan’s new blonde ‘do was a shock reaction because I now love it.

So much so that I can’t even picture her hair colour before.

The actress walked the red carpet at “The London Critics’ Circle Film Awards” last night looking very elegant wearing a Nina Ricci Pre-Fall 2010 gown.

The black gown with an elasticated waist was accented with a floral detail on the shoulder.

I’ve been going back and forth with my feelings towards Carey’s red carpet style recently, but this look I really like.

It’s chic, elegant and for a refreshing change it’s not Prada.
