Carey Mulligan In Victoria Beckham – Tiffany & Co. Blue Book Ball

Carey Mulligan In Victoria Beckham - Tiffany & Co Blue Book Ball

With the promo tour for ‘The Great Gatsby’ soon to get started, we are going to be seeing a lot of Carey Mulligan over the coming weeks.

She joined Gwyneth Paltrow and Kate Hudson on the red carpet for last night’s Tiffany & Co. Blue Book Ball, held at the Rockefeller Center in New York City.

This is our first look at the Victoria Beckham Fall 2013 collection on anyone other than the designer herself.

The British actress and Vogue cover girl selected an uber-chic ‘Le Smoking’ tuxedo suit featuring satin shawl collar lapels and a contemporary slashed-sleeves twist.

Taking inspiration from the runway, Carey opted for barely there (if any) makeup and black pumps, with subtle Tiffany and Co. jewels provided the finishing touches.

With her hair dyed a platinum blonde hue and sporting a natural look, Carey does look a tad washed out; however, I do love this bold masculine red carpet look.

  • Valeria

    She looks stunning! Despite my strong aversion to slashed sleeves I think it’s a winnin look and I applaud to her make-up artist for perfect illusion of non-made-up face. Some call it washed out but I call it fresh faced

  • me

    Not impressed

  • Prudence

    Love this look, I am sooo glad she has got a movie out cause this girl can dress. I know I wont be seeing any strapless chiffon dress from her EVER.

  • Wow that was strange. I just wrote an very long comment
    but after I clicked submit my comment didn’t appear. Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again.
    Anyways, just wanted to say excellent blog!

  • Dhppy

    Oh no! This does not work for her. In this photo it looks as if she’s added 45 years!

  • Laurie

    What happened to her? She looks terrible. It looks like she’s trying to be goth, but that’s a terrible direction for her to go in. Hope this isn’t a sign of what’s to come. blech

  • Aline

    I REALLY don’t like anything about this look.

  • TeaAtTwo

    I swap the T-bar for regular pumps but I think she looks uber chic.

  • Pedro

    Her best look EVER!

    Chic, stylish, fierce and fresh.

    Love love love. BDOTW for sure

  • Leo

    I looooooooved this look sooo much.

  • I really like the outfit but she looks a bit washed out, and lifeless. A bit of blush maybe would have helped.

  • Anj

    I’m envious she can go out without makeup but this strong outfit requires a strong makeup look. Also, I just don’t like this on her. Maybe on someone like Julianne Moore, but this isn’t Carey’s schtick.

  • Nat39

    Love the sleek modern design, and it works great on Carey, BDOTW worthy for me.

    • admmgz


  • Petra

    WOW. It’s been a while since someone blew me away with a tuxedo-style outfit. She looks stunning and damn sexy.

  • Susan

    This is a very different look and I don’t like it. It’s not an outfit that I would ever be interested in buying.

  • Amy

    I like it, it’s bold and understated at the same time (if I’m making any sense). I do wish she opted for another makeup.She looks quite washed out

  • amanda

    I would have gone for a smoky eye, but i think she looks incredibly striking. Plus, with that color hair, she looks like a young Cate Blanchett.

  • Emmeline

    From the neck down, I love it. She looks so chic.

    But she definitely needed some bolder makeup and I really wish she’d give up the bleached blonde hair. It’s so unflattering on her and just washes everything out.

  • dee

    I think she needs a bold lipcolor or smokey eyes. I like this despite the makeup.

  • EmmaWoodhouse

    I like that she’s doing something new, and I also applaud her nearly makeup-free choice. She is so beautiful. The earrings are fab as well. My issue is with the plunge-neck. I know I sound redundant, but it is NEVER classy or appropriate in my opinion. I love the split sleeves, but not the neckline.

  • Rafael

    Ok I know not every one is going to be happy with this comment but I have to say I love this look. And I’m not a fan of Carey’s style choices cause I think she can do better and this looks proves that. I love the styling of it. She’s really selling it. Even rocking it I have to say. I love it, She looks fabulous. I hope this is a good sign of a new root style wise for Carey on this promo.

  • bm

    I wanna love it, simply because she want to try something new. But she doesn’t have that aura to carry such this look.

  • AG

    Really cool, modern look! A red lip would have finished it off nicely though.

  • Yeliz

    I don’t know..the tuxedo does look great on her, but she looks kinda uncomfortable to me. And I really don’t like that she had barely makeup on, she looks washed out.

  • Denise

    I totally love this exquisite tuxedo but not the makeup.

  • firien

    Is it just me, or does this look have a bit of Dracula-vibe?

    • Lee Ann

      I vannto sick your blood!
      I think she looks positively ridiculous.

      • Christine

        First thought and that she looks pregnant.

  • styler

    Oh WOW! Enough said, how can someone so pintsize make such a bold and directional look work, she looks STRONG, DIRECTIONAL & oh so chic! A red lipstick would have sealed this like a letter. still i adore

  • Alicat

    I love this chic, sharply tailored look. The simplicity suits her. However, the hair colour and styling is harsh. Together with the pale makeup I agree that she lacks life and colour. In fact, it is very aging.


  • Nat

    She does look a little washed out, a bold lip would have improved this look, but still…I think it’s a great look.
    Maybe it’s because recently I have been obsessed with capes and cape-like stuff, but I just LOVE this tuxedo, and Carey wears it really well.
