Carey Mulligan In Prada – ‘Skylight’ Press Night Performance

Carey Mulligan In Prada - 'Skylight' Press Night Performance

Carey Mulligan was joined by co-star Matthew Beard in the foyer following their press night performance of ‘Skylight’ held at the Wyndhams Theatre on Wednesday (June 18) in London, England.

We haven’t seen much of the British actress since her promo tour for ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’ way back in October, and it would appear two things haven’t changed: Her love for Prada and her decision not to wear makeup.

The art-deco print Fall 2014 frock with a plunging neckline was styled black Prada mules which neither harm or enhance the look.

Considering she just came off stage, the lack of makeup can be explained away, however, we all know that she kick started the barely there makeup trend during her promo tour for ‘The Great Gatsby’ last year.

Carey Mulligan In Christian Dior – ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’ London Film Festival Premiere

Carey Mulligan In Christian Dior - 'Inside Llewyn Davis' London Film Festival Premiere

Carey Mulligan took to the red carpet this evening for the ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’ London Film Festival premiere held at the Odeon Leicester Square.

You will have to search back as far a May to find Carey Mulligan wearing a vibrant hue, so I was delighted she selected something outside of her black, nude, blush, and white comfort zone on this rare occasion.

She wore a Christian Dior yellow matte silk and wool crepe cocktail dress with contoured seams on the bodice which she styled with black Dior pumps.

The second bit of good news is that her makeup artist is no longer M.I.A. as Carey (the star who kicked started the barely-there makeup trend) sported a lush raspberry lip shade.

No jewels, just a simple wavy bun completed her look.

Do you love the look or can you not ignore her footwear selection as I have chosen to?

Who Wore Victoria Beckham Better…Carey Mulligan or Victoria Beckham

Who Wore Victoria Beckham Better Carey Mulligan or Victoria Beckham

Carey Mulligan was the first to don a look from Victoria Beckham’s Fall 2013 collection when she attended the Tiffany & Co Blue Book Ball back in April.

While most, like Kate Hudson, donned beautiful gowns – as one would expect at a ball – Carey marched to the beat of her own drum wearing an uber-chic ‘Le Smoking’ tuxedo suit featuring satin shawl-collar lapels and a contemporary slashed-sleeves twist.

Victoria Beckham wore the same suit while attending the celebration of The Global Fund’s first Green Carpet Challenge last month.

Unlike Carey, VB wore her jacket over her shoulders, adding a black wrap top which is also from her collection.

Controversially, I’m going to go with Carey on this occasion as I love the way she wore the jacket as presented, making use of the slashed sleeves.

Carey Mulligan In Erdem – ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’ Press Conference

Carey Mulligan In Erdem - 'Inside Llewyn Davis' Press Conference

Following two black looks I was delighted to see Carey Mulligan wearing colour for the ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’ press conference held at The London Hotel in New York on Sunday.

The British actress wore an Erdem Resort 2014 chiffon layered dress with bright colour splashes within the classic houndstooth pattern.

While some of you are happier with this brunette hue, I think it ages her quite drastically.

Nice to see some makeup applied on this occasion.

Carey Mulligan In 10 Crosby Derek Lam – ‘Another Day, Another Time: Celebrating The Music Of “Inside Llewyn Davis”‘

Carey Mulligan spoke on stage before performing with Gillian Welch and Rhiannon Giddens during the one-night-only concert ‘Another Day, Another Time: Celebrating The Music Of “Inside Llewyn Davis”‘ held at The Town Hall on Sunday in New York City.

The British actress wore a 10 Crosby Derek Lam Spring 2014 black jumpsuit with a criss-cross front which was several inches too long for her.

As much as I love this jumpsuit, the affection has been nullified by the uninspiring styling.

Carey Mulligan In Alexander McQueen – ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’ New York Film Festival Premiere

Carey Mulligan In Alexander McQueen - 'Inside Llewyn Davis' New York Film Festival Premiere

Carey Mulligan attended the ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’ premiere during the 51st New York Film Festival held at Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center on Sunday in New York City.

Sporting a new brunette ‘do, the British actress wore a British brand, opting for an Alexander McQueen Resort 2014 black halter dress with a gold-embroidered neckline and cut-outs at the waist.

Not opting for any trinkets, she styled the look with black satin platform pumps and continued the barely there makeup trend she kick-started this summer.

Is it me, or with this dark hair is she starting to morph into Rooney Mara?

Freida Pinto, Carey Mulligan, Michelle Dockery & Gabrielle Union In Miu Miu – Miu Miu Women’s Tales

Freida Pinto, Carey Mulligan Michelle Dockery & Gabrielle Union In Miu Miu - Miu Miu Women's Tales

Several celebs attended the Miu Miu Women’s Tales screening during the 2013 Venice International Film Festival in Italy this afternoon.

Freida Pinto: I’m usually a big fan of Freida’s style, but this bright-red Miu Miu dress with a black button panel with a zipper detail …dare I say… looks very cheap and the whole thing reads sloppy to me. Very disappointed.

Carey Mulligan: Even though I am not a fan of sunglasses on the red carpet, Carey fared much better wearing a simple black silk Miu Miu frock with a white Peter Pan collar, which is the second look which has a back-to-school vibe I have seen this week.

Michelle Dockery: Also opting for red, the British actress wore a Miu Miu silk crepe-de-chine loose-fit mini dress with two front patch pockets. I am picturing her shuffling along the red carpet, because those black pumps look so heavy. I’m also not a fan of the clutch; it feels like it is there just for advertising purposes as it also doesn’t complement her frock.

Gabrielle Union: The beautiful actress graced the red carpet wearing a floaty sheer black Miu MIu dress with a red velvet panel which has an autumnal feel that I can’t get excited about.

In summary, with the exception of Carey, none of these looks is working for me. I can find fault with each look.
