Carey Mulligan In Alexander McQueen – ASMALLWORLD’s 10th Anniversary Winter Weekend Gala Benefit

Carey Mulligan In Alexander McQueen - ASMALLWORLD's 10thAnniversary Winter Weekend Gala Benefit

ASMALLWORLD’s 10th anniversary Winter Weekend, hosted by Sabine Heller and Patrick Liotard-Vogt, incorporated a swanky gala benefit for War Child hosted by the Carey Mulligan in Gstaad, Switzerland on Saturday (December 13).

As you know I have been slightly frustrated by Carey’s style of late, so you could’ve knocked me down with a feather upon sight of the British actress wearing this Alexander McQueen Resort 2015 gown.

For someone like Carey who has such a simple, minimalist style, this leopard print choice was not expected; or even dreamed about.

I just love the structured of the pink and burgundy gown, although I wish the Stella McCartney clutch was a touch more complementary.

Beauty wise she opted for a natural flawless look which included a glossy pink lip. (Regular readers will know this is a big deal for Carey).

I’m delighted to see Carey has regained her red carpet mojo. I just hope it lasts.

Are you as easily pleased as I am?

Carey Mulligan In Alexander McQueen – 2014 London Evening Standard Theatre Awards

Carey Mulligan In Alexander McQueen Pre-Fall 2014 - 2014 London Evening Standard Theatre Awards

Carey Mulligan presented the Best Design Award during at the 60th London Evening Standard Theatre Awards held at the London Palladium on Sunday (November 30) in London, England.

The British actress wore an Alexander McQueen Pre-Fall 2014 black satin ruffled dress with black Alexander McQueen ‘Armadillo’ sandals.

I don’t know about you but my first reaction to this was “what a waste”.

Such a stunning dress deserved a red carpet moment and frankly better styling.

It’s rare that McQueen can look so blah, but Carey managed to make the impossible, possible.

Carey Mulligan In Erdem – Harper’s Bazaar Women of the Year Awards

Carey Mulligan In Erdem - Harper's Bazaar Women of the Year Awards

Carey Mulligan made a return to the red carpet to attend the Harper’s Bazaar Women of the Year Awards held at Claridge’s Hotel on Tuesday (November 4) in London, England, where she picked up the Inspiration award.

The British actress, who is also the publication’s December 2014 cover girl, wore a trio of London-based brands.

I adore the wintery, earthy woodland feel of her Erdem look, which is ironically from the Spring 2015 collection. Not used to showcasing that much skin, the cut-out detail is something new for Carey. I’m delighted to see her return to the red carpet with a fresh new look.

Sophia Webster red ‘Coco’ satin pumps with a gold heel matched her lips, with a Sophie Hulme envelope clutch rounding out her ladylike look.

It’s nice to see her wearing makeup on this occasion.

Remember her ‘Great Gatsby’ makeup-less run?

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.
