Carey Mulligan in Proenza Schouler


Let’s face it: mustard yellow is not an easy color to pull off. A lot depends on the cut, fabric and style, not to mention the wearer’s skin tone, hair color and, lest we forget, the shoes and accessories worn with said mustard dress. Which brings us to Carey Mulligan. With adorable chipmunk cheeks and pale skin, the actress pulled off Proenza Schouler’s resort mustard crinkle chiffon dress with much aplomb while in London to promote “Never Let Me Go.” The micro fan pleat is flattering while the shrunken puff sleeves are ultra feminine and balanced nicely with grey panels above the shoulders. It was a smart idea to wear simple and elegant black YSL pumps with this dress; the black picks up the dress’ trim smartly. More importantly, this dress is age appropriate–something many, MANY actresses fail to remember nowadays.
