We love to hear that celebrities have the same can-I-should-I-will-I shopping crises over big ticket items that we do. Just this morning we heard about Diane Kruger's first big purchase (an Hermès bag, BTW), and now Keira Knightley is letting slip about her fashion spurges. The Never Let Me Go star told UK Elle that the most expensive thing she’s ever bought was “a pale sheepskin coat from Burberry. ‘My mum was like, “You cannot spend that amount of money on a coat”, and I was like, “No, you’re right I can’t, I can’t.” And then literally it was months, months of thinking about it and thinking, “I’m not going to do it, I’m not going to do it.” But then she said, “Right, if you’re going to buy it, you have to wear it all the time.” So I wore it every day last year and I’m going to wear it every day this year.” The March issue sees Keira model Tom Ford's standout womenswear collection (talk about elegance overload!). We caught a glimpse of the on-shoot action courtesy of this behind the scenes clip. Wanna see? keep reading . . .
Little Miss Mulligan is all aboard the promo bus for her latest movie Never Let Me Go. Yesterday she was out and about in London Town for a photocall and the film's UK premiere showing just how versatile a shorter style can be. And we thought that was purely Posh's domain. At the photo call (on the right) she brushed her hair forward wearing it with a natural wave running throughout and finishing off the style with a thin black headband. Noice. Later on, she decided to get all '90s on us and pinned back sections randomly just like Drew Barrymore used to do. Huh. Well I guess pretty much every other style has had its comeback so it's only fair that this one did, right? Whaddya reck? Got a favourite style on Carey? I'm saying waves.
Carey Mulligan wore a pleated halter dress and Keira Knightley went with a daring beaded number for the premiere of Never Let Me Go in London this evening. The ladies posed with co-star Andrew Garfield at their photo call earlier in the day as part of the London Film Festival. During the morning's press conference, Carey spoke about the pressure of working with Keira on an adaptation where the author of the original book is still around and Keira shared her own biggest challenge on this movie. Andrew just wrapped up his red carpet work for The Social Network, and Carey finished her press duties for Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps last month, while Keira's most recent appearance was at Paris Fashion Week.
Carey Mulligan and Keira Knightley both paired sky-high heels with cropped hair as they joined Andrew Garfield for a Never Let Me Go photo call at the London Film Festival today. Keira has been dividing time between England and Paris, where she recently shot a new ad for Chanel and debuted her chic bob during the Fashion Week festivities. Carey is on a break from working alongside Ryan Gosling and Christina Hendricks on the set of Drive in California, while Andrew is currently enjoying the box-office and critical success of The Social Network. The trio can likely look forward to a similarly warm reception for their latest project.
Cutie Carey Mulligan kicked things off last night at the London Film Festival to promote her movie Never Let Me Go. She provided a fine example of switching things up between day and night, opting for a mustard pleated Proenza Schouler dress with black accents and YSL heels for the photo call, before changing into a black, white and red halter dress from Vionnet’s Spring ’11 collection for the premiere. Her red carpet look was finished off with Giuseppe Zanotti for Vionnet gold wedges. Aside from a bit of a pleats theme, the two looks are really different, with one showcasing her sweet, ladylike style and the other showing more of a fashion-forward approach. I think she looks stunning in both, so now it’s your call. Which look is more fab?
Following her time in Toronto, Carey Mulligan is in New York to promote Never Let Me Go. Last week she stepped out looking casual for lunch at Pastis with friends, before changing into a gorgeous grey dress to sign autographs for fans. She also surprised some lucky fans by three special screenings of her movie. This week she'll switch gears to attend the premiere of another new movie of hers, Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps, alongside her man Shia LaBeouf.
If any actress embodies the latest '50s-inspired, ladylike trend, it's Carey Mulligan. Her fashion sense is clearly wise beyond her 25 years. You'll never find her in anything skimpy, skin-tight, or super short. Instead, she prefers knee-length hemlines, poufy silhouettes and anything undeniably classy. If you're into the latest '50s craze, here are some luxe Carey ensembles to inspire you.
After promoting at the Toronto Film Festival, Carey Mulligan and new Spider-Man Andrew Garfield stayed close at a screening of Never Let Me Go in New York last night. Vogue US cover girl Carey went dark and mysterious in a black lacy dress. They were joined by director Mark Romanek, but co-star Keira Knightley wasn't there as she's been busy shooting ads in Paris. All three stars will be back in London next month when the film opens the London Film Festival.
God I love Carey Mulligan. Unlike lots of other Hot Young Things, she's never afraid to mix things up. She's also s-to-the-savvy when it comes to beauty, too. Check out her latest look. That eye. Sure it's smoky. Sure it's a classic. But it sure did a good job of distracting you from the fact that she's growing out her hair didn't it? See. Savvy. She uses the power of makeup for good, not evil. I've been there myself. The horrible growing-out stage of a crop, but she's handling it well, the little minx. At a NYC screening of her new movie Never Let Me Go, she showed off her longer tousled style and stylin' smoky eye. Normally I'm not always a fan of the heavy eye look, but when teamed with a wash of pink on the cheeks and a little rose gloss, I think it looks rather pretty. You too? Got any good tips for the in-between styles stage?
