From the moment I saw her whimsical Prada gown at the Oscar’s I knew Carey Mulligan was evolving into a style star…with a wink!
While I’m sure Carey is working with a stylist for red carpet events she has a way of wearing pieces that is similar to her screen presence-confident and compelling! We’ll be seeing a lot more of Carey in 2011 thanks to a stint on Broadway and a high-profile role as Daisy in Baz Luhrmann’s upcoming adaptation of The Great Gatsby!
Even her personal street style- a lot of menswear inspired separates with a pinch of Brit Girl Cool- is so well put together its obvious that she doesn’t need much help!
With a lot of skinny jeans, Celine’s Classic sunglasses, and that cream colored Prada coat Carey hits a perfect note. She also favors boxy, fitted blazers and sweet flats to polish off her street style.
One of the great things about Carey is that she wears prints, colors, fabrics fearlessly and manages to always look elegant.
So, Carey Mulligan is my number one best dressed of 2010. As Vogue’s fashion director, Lucinda Chambers, said, “What a refreshing change on the red carpet to see someone who wears such distinct designers, like Vionnet, Prada and Peter Pilotto, and makes them her own.”
So who were your favorites this year???
