Carey Mulligan In Bottega Veneta – 15th Annual Hollywood Film Awards Gala

Carey Mulligan opted for a head-to-toe black look on the red carpet for the 15th Annual Hollywood Film Awards Gala last night where she picked up the ‘Supporting Actress’ award for ‘Shame’.

The British actress had been M.I.A. on the red carpet for a while, but she made a welcome return giving us a second look from the Bottega Veneta Spring 2012 collection on the red carpet.

Her embellished halter dress was paired with simple black satin Ferragamo peep-toes and a Bottega Veneta waxy studded intrecciato leather box clutch.

What I love most about this look is Carey’s hair and makeup.

As we know, she tends not to pay too much attention to this department, but her smoky eyes, nude lips and blonde quiff provide the perfect finishing touches and prevent this look from feeling too one-note.

Carey Mulligan In Roksanda Ilincic – Film District Photo Op Panel Press Line

Carey Mulligan attended the Film District Photo Op Panel Press Line during the 2011 Comic Con event to promote her new movie, “Drive.”

We weren’t particularly impressed with the British actress the last time she stepped onto the red carpet, but what a difference semi smile, good shoes plus a cut and colour can do to a gal.

I’m glad Carey has accepted that blonde works better for her. Her whole face appears brighter as a result.

I really loved her Roksanda Ilincic Resort 2012 look.

The colour-block dress thankfully wasn’t modified. The cut-out details on the bodice reveal Carey’s toned abs.

Those brown Trib Too’s that Carey seems to favour so much were swapped out for a pair of gorgeous red pumps.

A single red bangle completed her look.

I love the addition of red to this look. It’s very much unexpected but they provide the perfect finished touches.

Celebrity Shoe Swap: Carey Mulligan

Carey Mulligan was spotted on her way to the Junior Spring Benefit wearing Yves Saint Laurent “Trib too” platform pumps.

These pumps weighed her Valentino dress down. She really could have used a splash of colour; especially since it’s summer.

Shoes Carey Should Have Worn:

Nicholas Kirkwood’s suede peep-toe platform pumps would have worked with Carey’s entire look – even her pink lip colour. The details in Kirkwood’s latest Fall 2011 collection are exquisite and this pump features a kiltie fringe.

I love the wooden platform on these bright orange Casadei suede open toe pumps. They’re completely different from the boring heels Carey wore.

Rupert Sanderson’s Fabia multi-colour python pumps are stunning! These heels are my favourite choice as they add both colour and excitement to her outfit.

Alaïa’s metallic pewter leather sandals complement Carey’s metallic clutch. Even though they’re heavily embellished with studs, they match the level of detail on her laser cut Valentino dress.

Carey Mulligan In Valentino – Junior Spring Benefit for Lincoln Center Event

Carey Mulligan was spotted on her way to the Junior Spring Benefit for Lincoln Center Event at the Gramercy Park Hotel in New York City last night.

The British actress wore a Valentino Fall 2011 dress.

Her laser cut shirt dress with sheer sleeves and Peter Pan collar was paired with a black clutch and brown YSL Trib Too pumps.

Despite Carey reluctance to smile on almost any occasion, I do like this look a lot.

My problem are her brown Trib Too’s.

What is it with Carey and her obsession with brown shoes?

Nude would’ve probably washed her out, so understand her not going down that path, but her first choice isn’t so great either.

Who Wore Prabal Gurung Better? Carey Mulligan or Molly Sims

Carey Mulligan attended the 2010 British Independent Film Awards back in December in this gorgeous bright red Prabal Gurung Spring 2011 dress.

The dress which hits just below the knee features a matching ribbon to cinch in the waist and a ruffled corsage detail on the top.

Carey paired her look with a poppy-printed Roger Vivier clutch and black peep-toe shoes and wore her hair in a sophisticated tousled up-do. She kept her makeup minimal but added some impact with her strong darker eyebrows.

Molly Sims chose the same dress to wear to World Ocean Day 2011 event in New York last month.

She opted to pair her outfit with a mini black clutch and nude slingback heels, showcasing her matching red pedicure. Molly wore her hair down and wavy and her makeup fresh, glowing and summery.

This was tough to decide because both women look incredibly chic in the dress.

Even though I much prefer Carey’s choice of clutch, I love the nude shoes so Molly wins for me.
