Carey Mulligan relied on a trusty little black dress from Bottega Veneta’s Spring 2012 collection for the 2011 Hollywood Film Awards. There were some forum members who found the dress to be boring (I disagree), but the majority of the posters approved of her ensemble.
“Carey Mulligan in Bottega is good match. Very elegant and fresh design,” wrote fincher
also liked the look. “The dress is lovely, and I really love her hair,” she commented.
posted, “She looks very chic and even though it's black it's got a twist, and her hair looks nice.”
liked that the dress wasn’t basic. “She looks very elegant,” she noted. “I love how her hair is styled and the dress has great details especially the straps around her shoulders.”
For me, Carey Mulligan is one of those young actresses who makes you want more. She looks good in black, but I think she really shines when she makes quirkier choices. She's got the charm to make it work.
