Best British Export – Carey Mulligan

After looking back on Carey Mulligan’s red carpet looks of 2010, I decided that it wasn’t as bad as I had originally assumed.

She had the odd look which would age her quite drastically, but she got into the swing of things towards the latter part of the year after the pressure of Awards season was over.

Carey went from appearing on ‘Who Wore It Better?’ polls with Anna Wintour, to wearing fresh young labels such as Prabal Gurung and Preen.

She also looked gorgeous wearing Elie Saab and what appeared to be her favourite label – Vionnet.

Runner up: Emily Blunt

    I so agree with this. Carey in the Vionnet dress pictured above was in my top 10 for BDOTY

    I agree her red carpet looks improved with time. Often with these actresses and performers i need the talent to also win me over and Carey did that in “never let me go.”

    The second look is my fave. That interesting shoe choice makes the outfit. I don’t always like what Carey wears, but I like all four outfits here.

    I liked Emily’s looks better but Carey deserves this award as well.

    Yes, she did a great job this year. I’m still in love with that Preen look.

    I would have put Emma Watson in her place, but Carey works for me too :)

    I like Carey, she’s well spoken and smart and doesn’t take herself too seriously. She also does try to take some risks but at the same time her dress sense suggests someone in their 40s. She can do sexy but in a subtle elegant way.

    I liked Carey’s and Emma Watson’s style from UK this year.

    Carey KILLED it in the Vionnet! She’s a doll.

    she is absolutely amazing (both style and acting!). she’s really refined her style towards the end of the year especially and never fails to look sophisticated and gorgeous. definitely looking forward to looks in 2011.

    I fell in love with her this year. That black Elie Saab was in my top 10 of BDOTY.

    wow! i love carey style!
    she has made very interesting choices and ,in general, was really consistent! only some bad choices,but…who doesn’t make some bad choices?

    Carey in Preen is on of my oun Top 5 for 2010.

    I have a love/hate relationship with Carey in terms of her style. To me shes a cross between the older Michelle Williams and the young Emma Watson yet most of the time she manages to make herself look older than Michelle who is 30. I think its mainly down to her hair cut and the way she purses her lips which just age her. Cos when she gets it right (and when she smiles) she is SO stunning.

    I am not a fan of Carey whasoever. She wore some very pretty clothing, but always felt like she looked old.

  17. Marvel December 24, 2010 at 13:07 #

    Not a fan. She looks like she is forced to wear the clothes and I will never get the fascination with her in Preen. I thought it was a terrible look

    Such a fan, love her sophistication and how she makes each look her own.
