Carey Mulligan and Meryl Streep attend a photo call for “Suffragette” during the BFI London Film Festival at The Lanesborough Hotel in London, England. Streep came under fire in America this week when pictures of her and her “Suffragette” co-stars (including Mulligan) wearing t-shirts with a quote from Streep’s character, Emmaline Pankhurst became items of discussion. The pictures, for Time Out London, showed them wearing shirts with the phrase “I’d rather be a rebel than a slave,” prompting outcries of racial insensitivity.
If you asked us to picture Carey Mulligan and Meryl on a red carpet, we’d never have predicted that Carey would be the frumpier of the two.
Don’t get us wrong, Mary Louise’s dress is by no means perfect. For one, it appears to be a little too roomy for her. And we don’t much like the flare of the sleeves. But it’s youthful and colorful. It’s definitely a bold and slightly unexpected choice. If she can’t or didn’t want to go down a size, we’d have probably tried to figure out some way to belt it, since the design and color-blocking call for a more defined waist than that. But really, it’s cute and it’s different and we have very little to complain about, even though we just spent most of this paragraph complaining. Hey. It’s what we do.
As for Miss Carey… ooooh, girl. That is not a good look for you. It’s a shame, really, because both pieces are fairly okay on their own, but they really don’t belong together. That top with a black pair of tapered pants would’ve been perfectly chic.
