Red Carpet Style: Carey Mulligan

Carey Mulligan is dressed in a mustard chiffon dress [left] and vintage Prada [right].

I have to admit that I prefer Carey's hair with a slight wave to her short hair. It adds texture and demension. I also perfer her with that carefree smile on her face. It doesn't appear forced but like a moment of pure happiness. She has a great style. But on another note that pleated mustard dress is to die for. It hits her at the right spot on the knee and skims her body.

Then that Prada dress is structured and the perfect summer dress. The print is nostalgic. The color from the print seems to almost match her lip color perfectly. The fitted belt draws in her waist and the nude shoes give the illusion that she is taller. Very impresed. :)

When I first noticed Carey, I was quickly impressed with her super-chic British style. I'm in love with British style--its just so different from American fashion. Both of these looks are rather sub-dued but the punch comes for the details rather than the bold color. The Mouret garmet fits her body like a glove and the proportions are perfection. She appears confident and professional. Those Fendi cut-out shoes balance the geometic inspiration from the garment.

Then there is the Elie Saab piece. Elie Saab is known for elegance and femininity. The sheer skirt almost appears like fringe. Or is it? I can't tell. Carey paired the look with simple black pumps, in an effort not to draw any attention from the delicate bodice--its lace is both sexy and classy at the same time.
