Carey Mullgian In Christian Dior – Tiffany & Co ‘The Great Gatsby’ Dinner

Carey Mullgian In Christian Dior - Tiffany & Co 'The Great Gatsby' Dinner

Carey Mulligan attended the Tiffany & Co ‘Great Gatsby’ dinner at Rockpool in Sydney, Australia on Thursday evening.

The British actress has been sticking to a minimalistic look throughout her promo tour, in what appears to be a conscious effort to look the total opposite to her character in the movie.

While even I have celebrated her simplistic efforts, this is just one minimalistic look too many for my liking.

Carey wore a black Dior cap-sleeve gown which doesn’t provide much of a talking point at all.

Had the dress been a few inches shorter we would’ve gotten a chance to see what appear to be neon-green Dior pumps.

Have you come to the end of the minimalistic line, or are you still thirsty for more?

    I am so bored by this look.

      And she doesn’t sell it! I mean, the attitude, and the lack of accesories. I don’t know, I’m tired of her looking like that. And also, I hate her makeup. It ages her a lot!!

    I don’t think Carey has the charisma to pull off very minimalistic looks, she looks like a terrified little girl dressing up in severe clothes.

    • Noemi May 24, 2013 at 06:58 #

      My thought, exactly. Minimalistic dresses needs great styling, too. She looks like she just got out of the bed. I’m sure she must be quite tired, and that’s why she needs make up! And I find this hairstyle very unflattering for her.

        I agree!

    • Rashmi May 24, 2013 at 10:02 #

      So true! Am just bored by her dressing sense.

    I’m so bored by this that I can’t even find anything to comment on. It’s just… so… blah.

  4. Beth Rodrigues May 24, 2013 at 05:00 #

    not sure if this look is minimalistic or exhausted!

    • Prudence May 24, 2013 at 05:52 #

      ahaha yes!

    I’m not tired of minimalism but I’m rather tired of Carey Mulligan. (I mean fashion-wise — nothing personal!)

    Simple looks require great polish and, as Dunzoo (above) says, a certain degree of charisma. If you come out looking bored and glum, if you barely style your hair or put on lipstick, it comes across as indifference, even sloppiness.

    • Shalini Lahiri May 24, 2013 at 05:18 #

      I agree with you a 1000%. Carey is a great actress but little charisma to look fierce in this dress.

  6. kane May 24, 2013 at 05:26 #

    Seriously, Carey, no, not this time. I get the whole minimalist-either black or white-thing and I am usually giving you the benefit of the doubt even though it’s not my style, but this plain boring.

  7. Thaís May 24, 2013 at 05:52 #

    God, I miss Galliano! (doesn’t mean I don’t understand and agree with the reasons they fired him!)

  8. Melrose May 24, 2013 at 06:30 #

    Extremely dull, zero effort, forgettable.

    Please stop doing posts about her. There’s better people to highlight.

    I like minimalism. When worn by someone stunning enough to support it.
    I think Carey is a gifted actress but she needs a lot of support from her team to look stunning while wearing minimalistic outfits. Her makeup artist(?) needs to leave. Immediately. For her appearances in Cannes and this disaster. She either looks tired or washed out. She obviously cannot support this natural makeup trend.

    I wish Carey would quit the minimalistic looks- most of them don’t do anything positive for her :(

  11. Marty May 24, 2013 at 08:17 #

    Too much minimalism seems to be taking it’s toll. She always looks like she is about to cry :(. Come on, you’re in Cannes!!!

  12. Yeliz May 24, 2013 at 09:44 #

    I loved all of her minimalistic looks so far, but this one is just blah. So boring.

  13. Alicat May 24, 2013 at 10:01 #

    I try very hard to like her style, but this has to be one of her most flat, personality devoid looks. What is there to like? The dress is just a vast expanse of featureless black, with a matronly, high neckline and short sleeves. The hair is severely brushed back and the makeup bland. But what really kills it is the blank, expressionless face and little girl lost stance. If you want to wear minimalist looks you have to be able to lift them with a strong physical presence and personality. She seems to lack both on the red carpet.

    • Fiona May 24, 2013 at 12:35 #

      Agree 100%

  14. Mary May 24, 2013 at 10:15 #

    Just meh and all i get to think every time i see her is that she’s ready to cry. Smile for the love of fashion.

  15. Julia May 24, 2013 at 10:43 #

    this is so boring; the dress, the hair, the make and her expression. Black and black again? Her co- stars looks much better. Zzzzzzz. Miss só much her an education tour.

  16. Edd May 24, 2013 at 10:52 #

    Very boring and nothing special in it. If Dior continued like this, I think that in two years it will end up just like Jean Louis Scherrer and Yves Saint Laurent

  17. Patricia May 24, 2013 at 11:30 #

    She looks sick since she’s not wearing make-up anymore.

  18. Serena May 24, 2013 at 12:49 #

    Her Vionnet look in Cannes was my kind of minimalism… this is just boring.

  19. dee May 24, 2013 at 13:16 #

    I don’t like minimalism in terms of style. She looks awful.

  20. Godiva May 24, 2013 at 13:36 #

    She looks like she’s in mourning.

  21. Ariel May 24, 2013 at 14:24 #

    Minimalistic style + minimalistic charisma = zero

    • EmmaWoodhouse May 24, 2013 at 15:59 #

      LOL exactly.

  22. justme May 24, 2013 at 14:34 #

    Yes! I felt so alone in my dislike for Carey’s style, I’m glad you guys are finally joining me *evil laugh*

  23. k6wing May 24, 2013 at 17:55 #

    What a dull look…

  24. Maria Jose de Rivas May 25, 2013 at 01:24 #

    I like the minimalism but not at this particular event

  25. Layla May 25, 2013 at 01:40 #

    I love it.

  26. isik5 May 25, 2013 at 11:59 #

    She always looks so depressed. I don’t think she’s really into this fame stuff. So she looks boring and make the dress looks boring too. With a belt or a necklace this dress would be much better.

    booooring beyond words,like most of her getups lately
