A week after her marriage, we take a look at British actress Carey Mulligan’s style file.
If Twiggy was reborn, the result would be Carey Mulligan. The petite actress stays away from gossips and other Hollywood nasty stuffs, but her works say a thousand (good) words – think An Education, Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, and Drive. At the age of 23, she was a Best Actress nominee at the Academy Awards. She stars alongside Leonardo DiCaprio in the highly anticipated remake of the 1920s ‘The Great Gatsby’ which makes us expect an even bigger flapper craze when the movie comes out.
Stylewise, Carey swears by retro simplicity combined with edges that make her a regular standout both on and off the red carpet. Her signature pixie cut is often teamed with knee-length dresses that are nipped at the waist and perfectly circle at the bottom. Black is her go-to colour, a hue that allows her to glam up with statement accessories with the likes of bib necklace.
Besides the much-celebrated Alexa Chung, Carey too adores the peterpan collar – demure on off days and sequined for the red carpet. Stripes, boho maxi skirts, and brighter colours mark the joy of her off days. When it comes to shoes, bold is the word to describe her ever-so-cool black booties and solid-coloured pumps. Lace, laser cut, and eccentric patterns are some detailings that have frequently been seen on the smiley yet mysterious actress.
On her big day, Carey aka Mrs. Marcus Mumford (vocalist of Mumford & Sons) wore a creme custom-made Prada gown, reportedly teamed up with pink rainy boots because it was raining. No wedding photos are out at the moment, but the fashion world bets on their branded bags & shoes that Carey looks avant-garde; being a fashion original that she is.
Learn the simplicity science from the Brit beauty and kickstart the weekend in style.
