It simply wouldn’t be right to highlight the best looks at the 2022 Critics Choice Awards without including Carey Mulligan — who looked positively ethereal on the event’s red carpet in Los Angeles on Sunday (March 13).
The actress graced the occasion in a Chrisitian Dior Spring 2022 Haute Couture light grey strapless dress, which was wrapped in a sleek fishnet and tulle fabric.
The sophisticated gown was embroidered with staggered rows of gradient silver tulle and crystal bead ribbons, which provided some much-appreciated texture (and sparkle).
Understated jewels, minimalistic makeup and Carey’s loose, crimped hair topped off the ensemble with a casual elegance.
I might be biased, because I love everything that Carey dons on the red carpet — but this look is such a winner.
Not only does the dress align with the star’s own polished style, but its shifty pattern and free-flowing silhouette also makes this feel timeless.
If I was to nitpick, I do wish that the lining met the hemline.
