Who Wore Prabal Gurung Better? Carey Mulligan or Molly Sims

Carey Mulligan attended the 2010 British Independent Film Awards back in December in this gorgeous bright red Prabal Gurung Spring 2011 dress.

The dress which hits just below the knee features a matching ribbon to cinch in the waist and a ruffled corsage detail on the top.

Carey paired her look with a poppy-printed Roger Vivier clutch and black peep-toe shoes and wore her hair in a sophisticated tousled up-do. She kept her makeup minimal but added some impact with her strong darker eyebrows.

Molly Sims chose the same dress to wear to World Ocean Day 2011 event in New York last month.

She opted to pair her outfit with a mini black clutch and nude slingback heels, showcasing her matching red pedicure. Molly wore her hair down and wavy and her makeup fresh, glowing and summery.

This was tough to decide because both women look incredibly chic in the dress.

Even though I much prefer Carey’s choice of clutch, I love the nude shoes so Molly wins for me.

    My vote goes to Carey, black heels go better with this dress than nude IMO and I prefer that Carey put her hair up so I can fully enjoy the dress.

    I too prefer nude shoes, but Carey´s clutch is so much better and I like that you can see the neckline on Carey, so my vote goes to her.

      +1…..Carey could have made an effor about the shoes

      Agreed. Would have liked metallic shoes, maybe, but since you can see all of that detail plus the boss clutch, plus the fact that Carey’s skin glows in this color, I vote Carey.

    I prefer nude heel as well for this dress :)..I <3 the clutch that Carey has but for some reason i think Molly carried it well!My vote goes to Molly!

    I voted for Molly because Carey is always lifeless for me. Also I hate open toe too “open”.

    hair, clutch and makeup all make carey a knockout – shoes are a non-issue with both.
