Carey Mulligan’s at the Oscars, and All I’m Saying Is, If Princess Belle Wore a Crop Top . . .
While Carey Mulligan has been turning to Prada for award season so far, she and stylist Nicky Yates tapped Valentino for an award-winning custom couture ensemble for the 2021 Oscars red carpet, where she arrived with husband Marcus Mumford. Nominated for her incredible performance as Cassie in Promising Young Woman, Mulligan looked like an Oscar herself. Her bandeau and full ballroom skirt was covered in sequins that got bigger in size toward the bottom hem, where she was hiding this towering pair of Sophia Webster platforms. She played up her glow with Cartier jewels and swept back her hair, so the details of her Disney princess-worthy look were on full display. Baring a hint of the midriff or opting for a surprising cutout is a runway trend we’ve been seeing lately, so Carey’s ensemble is surely foreshadowing more red carpet gowns in the future. Ahead, see her pose from all angles.
