Carey Mulligan In Preen – ‘Mudbound’ AFI FEST 2017 Screening

Carey Mulligan attended the ‘Mudbound’ AFI FEST 2017 screening at the TCL Chinese Theatre on Thursday (November 9) in Hollywood, California, joining Mary J. Blige.

I have always been enamored with the way the actress puts a high-fashion twist on classic feminine shapes, pulling them off with an easy elegance. That was demonstrated in this Preen Spring 2018 dress.

The ankle-length number has details aplenty, but it doesn’t feel contrived when paired with the coordinating peep-toe shoes and her soft hair and makeup.

I’m sure there are a number of people who will be pleased to see Carey’s dress has been lined in black. I like the lining overall, but wish some panels had a neutral lining as details get lost against the black.

Carey Mulligan In Calvin Klein – 2017 Hollywood Film Awards

Carey Mulligan was regal in red at the 2017 Hollywood Film Awards on Sunday (November 5) in Beverly Hills, California.

The actress often favors feminine sophistication and this red Calvin Klein dress definitely spoke to that. The fit-and-flare skirt that stopped at the ankle had a graceful vintage feel which was enhanced with her coordinating peep-toe shoes.

When I first glanced at the outfit, I thought the detail on the neckline was a cut-out. Then I realized it was a fold. Some might like to have seen it tied in with matching pale pink accessories, but I find the way it contrasted the red colour palette to be rather striking.  Thoughts?

Carey Mulligan In Erdem – Harper’s Bazaar Women Of The Year Awards 2017

The Harper’s Bazaar Women Of The Year Awards 2017 on Thursday (November 2) in London also saw Carey Mulligan in the mix alongside Gemma Arterton, Hayley Atwell, and Jodie Foster.

I was immediately charmed by how this Erdem Spring 2018 plaid dress delivered a flirtatious twist on prim styling with its asymmetrical, off-the-shoulder neckline and flared, swing skirt.

While the look was in keeping with Carey’s safe-chic persona, the little bit of extra attitude here made all the difference.

A petal-pink clutch and a bouncy bob provided a modern, ladylike finish to the ensemble.

Carey Mulligan In Giambattista Valli – ‘Mudbound’ New York Screening

Carey Mulligan was back on the red carpet for the ‘Mudbound’ screening during the 55th New York Film Festival in New York City on Thursday (October 12).

After celebrating her décolletage earlier this week, she opted for a far more covered selection this time out with this ruby-red Giambattista Valli Resort 2018 gown.

I was thankful for the subtle ruffle detail and tonal belt that offered feminine shaping—and a hint of flair—to the more solemn side of the dress.

Introducing a bold red lip and a tousled, upswept bun was also a lovely way to finish out the elegant look.

Carey Mulligan In Christian Dior Couture – Cartier Celebrates Resonances de Cartier

Carey Mulligan joined Diane Kruger for Cartier’s celebration of Resonances de Cartier on Tuesday (October 10) in New York City.

The English actress has been on something of a role of late, however, the excitement I have felt for her previous looks didn’t extent to this one.

Her black Dior Fall 2017 Couture gown in sumptuous black velvet is actually quite stunning, as is her Cartier jewels, it’s the no-makeup makeup which fails to live up to everything else she has going on here.

Carey Mulligan In Gucci – ‘Mudbound’ London Film Festival Premiere

For the second night in a row we’re treated to yet another Gucci gown during the London Film Festival.

Carey Mulligan joined Mary J. Blige for the premiere of ‘Mudbound’, wearing a sheer look from Gucci’s Resort 2018 collection.

I’m so intrigued by this look as it breaks the mould of what I perceived a Carey Mulligan look to be: safe.

I love how this Grecian goddess dress is given a new lease of life off the runway with a mint-green lining to really throw the cat amongst the pigeons.

Black may have killed the eclectic vibe or made the look feel too formulaic.

Francesco Russo metal ‘Karung’ pink gold sandals completed her look.

I’m totally buying what she’s selling. Are you?

Carey Mulligan In Chanel – ‘Mudbound’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Carey Mulligan was seen on the Toronto Film Festival scene on Tuesday (September 12) at the ‘Mudbound’ premiere.

Chanel ensembles are, at their best, chic, timeless, and sophisticated—and that’s exactly what was found in this design from the Pre-Fall 2017 collection.

I love how the dress married a sweet femininity with classic form in the colourful tweed accents and double-C belt.

It was an effortless look for Carey—and ideal for the slightly more relaxed Toronto red carpet premieres.

Rupert Sanderson ‘Myril Plato’ sandals completed her look.
