Carey Mulligan in Christian Dior Couture | “The Great Gatsby” Premiere – 2013 Cannes Film Festival Opening Ceremony
WHERE & WHEN: “The Great Gatsby” 66th Annual Cannes Film Festival Opening Ceremony on May 15, 2013.
WEARING: Christian Dior Haute Couture dress, Salvatore Ferragamo shoes & Tiffany & Co. jewelry.
MY VERDICT: It’s only the first day of the Cannes Film Festival, and I’m already shocked by a wardrobe choice. I had Carey Mulligan pegged for wearing a certain designer at “The Great Gatsby” premiere, but the English actress joined director Baz Luhrmann and her co-star Leonardo DiCaprio at the opening ceremony wearing a Dior Haute Couture blush matte satin duchesse gown, which features a plunging v-neckline. I’m so use to black and red dresses on Carey that this was a surprise.
The dress is pretty, albeit too light for her.
There’s something about this that makes me want to relate the hair, makeup, and dress to Gwyneth Paltrow. It would have been nice to see Carey make this big departure and not have it compared to someone else, but it’s kind of impossible for me not to. | continue reading..
