Carey Mulligan In Prada – Catherine Martin and Miuccia Prada ‘The Great Gatsby’ Dresses Opening Exhibit

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

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

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.”

Carey Mulligan In Valentino – ASMALLWORLD Gala Dinner for the Alzheimer’s Society

Carey Mulligan showed her support for the Alzheimer’s Society by attending the ASMALLWORLD Gala Dinner held at The Gstaad Palace Hotel in Gstaad, Switzerland on Saturday evening.

The British actress, who serves as an ambassador for the Alzheimer’s Society, donned a black-and-silver Valentino Fall 2012 dress.

Carey has been M.I.A. from the red carpet for a while since recently getting married, but she keeps up her good reputation with this look.

Her black Prada sandals with silver detailing perfectly tie together with the unique silver lace of the dress; with a thin black belt nipping in her waist.

Centre-parted hair pulled back into a tight bun, kohl-rimmed eyes and a black Nina Ricci clutch provided the finishing touches.

Carey Mulligan’s Tom Ford ‘Natalia’ Bag

Carey Mulligan and hubby Marcus Mumford were seen taking a leisurely stroll in SoHo, New York City last week.

The British actress looked lovely sporting a light blonde curl ‘do, wearing a midi-length floral dress with a square neckline which has a retro feel to it.

Her Tory Burch metal-framed round sunglasses also leaned towards that vintage vibe, but her Tom Ford ‘Natalia’ bag brought the look right up-to-date with its sleek finish and striking gold hardware.

You may remember that Kate Bosworth carried the same bag just a few weeks ago on a romantic stroll with her beau. Jennifer Aniston owns this bag too.

Carey completed her summery look with black Prada ‘Kid’ flat cage sandals, drop earrings and red nail polish.

You can buy Carey’s Tom Ford ‘Natalia’ bag from Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus.
