Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Carey Mulligan In Lanvin - 'The Great Gatsby' New York Premiere

Carey Mulligan continued to work a barely there makeup look on the red carpet for the world premiere of ‘The Great Gatsby’ held at Avery Fisher Hall at the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts in New York City on Wednesday evening.

The actress wore a red Lanvin Fall 2013 structural double-bonded dress, which showed off her slender figure.

I hadn’t expected colour, so this bold red hue comes as a pleasant surprise, especially when the original dress was presented in black.

The styling was kept very simple, with the same Brian Atwood ‘Aida’ black sandals she wore the night before and stunning Tiffany jewels, including pear-shaped and round diamond cluster platinum earrings and a Tiffany Legacy diamond platinum ring.

If you were expecting razzle dazzle for this promo tour, you might be disappointed by this look for a world premiere.

Maybe that will come during Cannes where the movie opens the festival, but for now it looks like she is going to continue this minimalist approach.

Carey Mulligan - June Cover - Harper's Bazaar

We are going to be seeing a lot of Carey Mulligan this month, with her eagerly anticipated movie ‘The Great Gatsby’ due for release.

Gracing her second major title, the British actress is the June 2013 cover girl for Harper’s Bazaar UK, which hits newsstands today.

Her fresh springtime shoot sees her, not surprisingly, wearing Prada on the cover, paired with her husband’s Hunter wellies, with an additional 10 pages of glorious summery looks by Fendi, Bottega Veneta and Erdem.

Carey talks to the mag about her drive, which has seen the Londoner progress from low-budget British films to a lavish Hollywood production of The Great Gatsby. She also talks about working with Leonardo DiCaprio and her marriage to Marcus Mumford from Mumford and Sons, plus she explains how she keeps her feet on the ground.

Here are some extracts from her interview. The Full interview appears in the June issue of Harper’s Bazaar, on sale Wednesday 1 May 2013. Also available as a digital edition.

On playing Daisy in Baz Luhrmann’s ‘The Great Gatsby’: “Daisy was difficult to work out, but so fun to play… Baz also gave me about seven biographies of Zelda [Fitzgerald] and a stack of love letters from Ginevra [King]. You can so easily see where Fitzgerald has taken Daisy from. Just the way Zelda and Ginevra wrote – there were lines we stole for the script.”

On Michael Schumacher vs Leonardo DiCaprio: “Well, he [Leonardo DiCaprio] wasn’t my pin-up, but he was for a lot of my girlfriends. Michael Schumacher [was my pin-up]. I used to watch Formula 1 with my dad when I was little. When I did the audition [for the role of Daisy in ‘The Great Gatsby’] with Leo in New York I walked away grinning. Just the idea that if I never got any further, I had just spent an hour and a half acting with Leonardo DiCaprio.”

On why she chose to marry in a Prada wedding dress: “I have worn a lot of Prada and always loved their clothes. I always felt very comfortable. They were the first designer house that ever lent me anything; I wore Prada to the Oscars. The people who work there are so lovely and really just non-scary fashion people.”

Carey Mulligan In Prada - Catherine Martin and Miuccia Prada 'The Great Gatsby' Dresses Opening Exhibit

The Prada New York Epicenter at 575 Broadway in New York City was transformed last night for the opening of a special exhibition of selected costumes designed by Miuccia Prada and costume designer Catherine Martin for Baz Luhrmann’s upcoming film adaptation of ‘The Great Gatsby’.

Carey Mulligan was, of course, in attendance as the female lead in the movie and showing support to the designer, who also created her wedding dress.

The British actress wore a black long-sleeved Prada embroidered dress from the much loved Fall 2008 collection, which features a ruffled detail cascading down her shoulder to the hem of the dress on one side; on the opposite side the satin-backed ruffle starts from the hip.

Opting once again for a makeup-free, neutral look and no jewels, Prada platform sandals completed her look.

The exhibition opening coincides with the world premiere of Luhrmann’s movie ‘The Great Gatsby’, which takes place tonight in New York.

Are you hoping Carey hires a makeup artist before then, or are you loving this refreshing ‘plain Jane’ look?

Carey Mulligan In Victoria Beckham - Tiffany & Co Blue Book Ball

With the promo tour for ‘The Great Gatsby’ soon to get started, we are going to be seeing a lot of Carey Mulligan over the coming weeks.

She joined Gwyneth Paltrow and Kate Hudson on the red carpet for last night’s Tiffany & Co. Blue Book Ball, held at the Rockefeller Center in New York City.

This is our first look at the Victoria Beckham Fall 2013 collection on anyone other than the designer herself.

The British actress and Vogue cover girl selected an uber-chic ‘Le Smoking’ tuxedo suit featuring satin shawl collar lapels and a contemporary slashed-sleeves twist.

Taking inspiration from the runway, Carey opted for barely there (if any) makeup and black pumps, with subtle Tiffany and Co. jewels provided the finishing touches.

With her hair dyed a platinum blonde hue and sporting a natural look, Carey does look a tad washed out; however, I do love this bold masculine red carpet look.

Carey Mulligan for Vogue US May 2013

We should not be surprised to see a Great-Gatsby-inspired American Vogue cover featuring Carey Mulligan hit the newsstands just before the movie’s release on May 10.

The British actress channels her inner Daisy Buchanan for the May 2013 cover – which was captured by Mario Testino – wearing an Oscar de la Renta Fall 2012 chartreuse gown and dripping with roaring-twenties-inspired jewels, courtesy of Tiffany & Co.

The rest of her editorial includes pieces from Miu Miu, Nina Ricci, Christian Dior, Chanel, plus my favourite – Alexander McQueen.

In the magazine, Carey talks about the movie and how she prepared for the role.

The Vogue May 2013 issue hits newsstands on April 23.

You can read more over at Vogue or read the extracts below.

On waiting to find out if she had got the role: “I was trying to be cool, but oh, it was horrible. It was terrifying, the suspense. I was winding down on shooting ‘Drive’, so I wasn’t working that much, just waiting around for the phone to ring and for me to be disappointed.”

On making the Great Gatsby: “It was crazy and exhausting and quite overwhelming… the biggest, craziest production I’ve ever been involved in.”

On her good fortune in Hollywood: “It’s unsettling that you get exactly what you wanted. Not like some version of it, not a slightly lesser version of it, but exactly. You’re like: This is weird. It is weird.”
