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.

BOSS Shanghai Fashion Show

BOSS Shanghai Fashion Show

HUGO BOSS hosted a spectacular event in Shanghai. The museum “Power Station of Art” venued an impressive fashion show presenting the BOSS Mens- and Womenswear Collections for Winter 2013.
They invited several guests from around the globe.

Carey Mulligan: The British actress posed alongside Claus-Dietrich Lahrs, CEO of Hugo Boss, wearing a BOSS all-black look featuring a blazer, a satin-trimmed bustier and tapered pants, with her favourite Brian Atwood ‘Aida’ sandals and a red lip colour completing her look. This is a really chic look; however, I wish she would wear a colour other than black.

Michelle Chen: The actress obliged, wearing a bold orange-hued strapless BOSS gown with a bronze clutch, which is in total contrast to the all-black look worn by Carey.

Gerard Butler: The handsome actor looked very dapper decked out in a classic BOSS black suit. I would’ve loved it had he selected one of the more colourful suits which were presented in this show.

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?

Carey Mulligan In Nina Ricci – ‘The Great Gatsby’ Sydney Premiere

Carey Mulligan In Nina Ricci - ‘The Great Gatsby’ Sydney Premiere

Following a short trip to promote her new movie ‘The Great Gatsby’ in Cannes last week, Carey Mulligan took to the red carpet at Moore Park in Australia for the Sydney premiere.

Despite the wet conditions, Carey opted for an arm-baring look from the Nina Ricci Fall 2013 collection.

Having stuck to a black-and-white colour palette during Cannes, this look featured a Chantilly lace blush-coloured bustier paired with black cropped pants, rather than the skirt this look was presented with on the runway.

Many of you will be delighted to discover that Carey’s makeup artist travelled with her on this leg of her promo tour. Just that pink lip colour alone brightens up her face, preventing her from looking so washed out and tired.

Giving her Brian Atwood ‘Aida’ peep-toes a break, the British actress wore Saint Laurent t-bar sandals on this occasion, with Tiffany jewels and wavy tresses completing her look.
