Carey Mulligan upset the Telegraph's Hilary Alexander, who wondered why the English starlet did not wear a dress by a British designer to the BAFTA Awards — Britain's Oscars — last night. She wore a dress instead by newly revived French label Vionnet, but Alexander wonders why she didn't wear something by a British label like Christopher Kane or Burberry or Erdem. She writes:
If she was really smart, she could have chosen to wear a dress by Alexander McQueen, and thus honour the memory of the talented maverick who died 10 days ago.
But Mulligan is not running for political office — she's walking red carpets at award shows. And fashion magazines who might feature her probably won't be dissuaded from doing so as long as she looks elegant and relatively inoffensive. And even so, plenty of starlets with offensive style land on magazine covers regularly, so it probably doesn't even matter if she looks good!
However, one can't help but wonder about her chances at a Vogue cover. Though she's been featured in the magazine, she tells People StyleWatch:
“Anna said I should wear short for the Oscars,” says Mulligan. “I was like ‘No, that is so not what I had in my head when I was six years old!’”
Oh! So if actresses are living out the fantasies of 6-year-old girls, that may begin to explain why the state of red-carpet fashion is so tragic lately.
