Carey Mulligan attended the ‘China: Through the Looking Glass’ 2015 Met Gala red carpet hosted at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on Monday (May 4).
Like Lady Gaga, the actress wore a custom Balenciaga design although hers couldn’t have been more different.
Significantly more restrained, the high-low gown featured a quiet elegance that was topped off by an embellished collar piece.
A vampy oxblood lip and messy bun completed the look that was perfectly in line with Carey’s simple, fuss-free style. Yet it was exactly that reason that it failed to excite like some of the other looks of the evening.
