The Subtle run of Carey Mulligan continued on from her MET gala appearance. Sticking to her minimal approach through her Cannes run, of her five appearances my preferences were:
The Great Gatsby Photocall: She wore her second Balenciaga in a row. A very chic black jumpsuit featuring a circular beaded bodice with a bow accent and unusual circular neckline (one of my favs from the collection) , which she styled with Saint Laurent t-bar pumps. Accessorizing with kohl rimmed eyes, neutral lips and simple chignon, she looked every OH SO CHIC.
The Inside Llewyn Davis Photocall: The Chloe dress with a military vibe from Fall 2013 collection was just perfect on Mulligan. Simple, minimal and chic, it was right up her alley. I am beginning to sense she is fast on the track of becoming my fav in terms of style and her approach towards looks. Opting for black again, she paired up black Louboutin peep-toes with the A line dress. The hair was styled as a parted chignon and barely-there-makeup (someone seems to have found their signature look)
The Inside Llewyn Davis Premiere: Outshining everyone, even mr. Timberlake at the premiere was this petite actress in black and white Vionett gown. A simple and effective take on the black and white trend, Carey Mulligan looks flawles. The knotted chingnon is probably one of the most innovate takes on the hairstyle and the simple natural makeup completes her look. The black and white gown with V slit was definitely a winner on the red carpet. She paired the look with her Brian Atwood heels.
The Un-Certain regard section judge was spotted at almost everyday on the red carpet. Giving us quite a few different looks, she managed to stir up and have people sit up and take notice of her.
The Jury Photocall: Wearing a Giambattista Valli Spring 2013 Couture dress, Zhang Zi attended the jury photocall on Day2. Featuring a sheer top and colourful patterned structured skirt with green embroidered leaf details, she looked pretty. Completing her look with a loosely teased bun and yellow loubs, she presented a perfect summer color combo and look.
The Opening Ceremony: For the opening ceremony, Zhang ziyi chose to go against the grain, while wearing a look from the Christian Dior Fall 2012 Couture collection. Going the edgy route, her pixie hair (thats a wig) went perfectly with the navy and fuschia top paired with back pants. A navy satin clutch and Christian Louboutin ‘Pivichic’ pumps completed her look.
The Bling Ring premiere: Going for a Fall 2012 gown by Carolina Herrera, Zhang Zi surely made head turns with this edgy outing. The black-and-silver brushstroke print gown was paired with a chunky necklace. She swept her hair back into a sleek updo with a Jimmy Choo clutch providing the finishing touches to her look.
La-Venus-a-La-Fourrure- premirere: The actress sported, looking heavenly, in an embellished Elie Saab Couture. The breathtaking lilac fully embellished gown with three-quarter length sleeves was accented with a tonal leather belt. Utilizing the pockets, she opted to skip the clutch.She completed her look with Boucheron jewels and an Omega watch. Quite the pretty princess-sy moment.
Only God Forgives Premiere: Opting for a gown from Chanel from the Fall 2009 collection, Zhang Ziyi walked down the red carpet, looking flawlessly. The strapless gold and black sequined gown, looked every bit red carpet worthy. The only problem I had was with the organza train that looked more like a tail rather than part of the gown.Accessorizing her look with Chanel Joallierie jewels, a Ferragamo ‘Faberge’ egg clutch and Jimmy Choo black peep-toes, she completed it off with a simple bun.
