Carey Mulligan Serves Cult Minimalism at the “Mudbound” New York Film Festival Premiere

In the interests of flipping the script…

Girl, that is so your dress and your dress alone.

We couldn’t be more tired and bored by sister-wife dresses, especially red ones, since we seem to have been subjected to about a thousand of them on the red carpets of the world in the last year or so. But sometimes a style, no matter how tired and overplayed it may get, meets a wearer so well-suited to it that it comes off fresher than if almost anyone else had worn it. She’s just got the right sort of old-fashioned face, combined with the right sort of fresh and low-key styling preferences to make this work. Put it on Emma Stone or Nicole Kidman and we’d be bored out of our minds. But with her swept back hair, clean face and unfussy manner, this is all kind of coming together for us. It helps that the dress itself is blessedly free of too many ruffles, bows and gewgaws.
