The leading lady of the film looked red hot on the red carpet — and she was dripping in $131,500 worth of diamonds! Do you think she totally rocked it in red?
Carey Mulligan was beaming on the red carpet at the world premiere of The Great Gatsby at Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts in NYC on May 1, where the star opted for a vibrant red Lanvin dress. Carey continued her minimalistic yet chic approach while promoting the highly anticipated film, opting for understated glamour.
Carey Mulligan ‘The Great Gatsby’ Premiere Dress:
The 27-year-old star’s frock from the Fall 2013 collection hit right below the knee, hugging her svelte frame, while the strapless, sweetheart neckline allowed her flawless skin to really shine. While part of me wishes the star opted for a glam gown for the world premiere, I was pleasantly surprised to see Carey turn up in such a vibrant hue. She paired her red dress with Brian Atwood ‘Aida’ sandals in black satin. The feminine detail of the shoe was perfect against the dress, but I thought the black shoe was a distraction. I wish she opted for a metallic sandal instead.
Carey Mulligan ‘The Great Gatsby’ Premiere Jewelry:
While her dress was rather classic her jewelry really stole the spotlight! Carey was dripping in $131,500 worth of Tiffany & Co. jewels, including her exquisite pear-shape and round diamond cluster earrings in platinum and a Tiffany ‘Legacy’ round diamond ring in platinum. The bling really added the finishing touches to her dress!
The natural beauty sported barely there makeup, a trend that was so hot on the Fall 2013 runways. Lightly lined eyes, nude shadow and fluttering mascara rounded out her premiere routine while a natural, rosy lip finished off her flawless look.
Sure, Carey looked effortlessly chic look at the world premiere but it definitely wasn’t my favorite dress on the star — but I’m not giving up hope on seeing Carey wow on the red carpet! I can’t wait to see what she’ll wear in Cannes, when the highly anticipated film kicks off the chic festival.
What did you think of her premiere look? Was it lovely or did you find it quite lackluster?
