Best Dressed Of The Week: Carey Mulligan

From parties to premieres, Kimberlee Oo brings us the weekly red carpet wrap-up.

There’s only four days until Christmas and Carey Mulligan was getting right into the spirit this week in a glittering Valentino frock. It’s probably the only time of the year when it’s acceptable to resemble a Christmas tree, so kudos to the new Mrs Mumford pulling it off.

Carey, an ambassador for the Alzheimer’s Society, looked perfectly festive in a tiered cocktail dress at the ASMALLWORLD Winter Weekend in Switzerland. The actress paired back the busy lace detailing with simple black Prada heels, a narrow belt and a Nina Ricci clutch.

I love the combination of the sheer with the intricate lace overlay – its ladylike and demure, but with an edgy twist. A no-nonsense low bun, simple smoky eyes and a natural lip let the Valentino shine, literally!

If you’re stuck on what to wear this Christmas, why not copy Carey and jazz up your faithful LBD. Look for some dazzling accessories – a statement necklace, a metallic belt or a pair of bejewelled earrings will instantly lift you from wah to wow and inject some much-needed Christmas cheer into your wardrobe.

Merry Christmas and happy holidays!
