Carey Mulligan Sparkles

Carey Mulligan was nomited for an Academy Award for her role in An Education last year. This year she starred alongside Keira Knightley and Andrew Garfield drama, Never Let Me Go.

Trivia Question: Who did Carey Mulligan play in the 2005 version of Pride and Prejudice? If you know this--without using the Internet--I will be very impressed.

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.

I really want to see Never Let Me Go. What did you think of Carey's style? If you want more Viva la Fashion become a fan on Facebook for up to the minute updates. You will get updates whenever a new post is published. Talk to you guys soon! :D
