    It’s definitely unique, but I’m not quite sure how I feel about it yet. The face is lovely as always. Kudos to her for not being safe and boring though.

  • Bryn

    It’s a little weird but I like it! It looks like fish scales.

  • AbFab

    Awesome dress! The best I’ve seen so far.

  • rada

    something cate blanchett would’ve rocked. carey’s pulling it off though, edgy and confident.

  • Message

    I adore her, but no… Just no. This dress is hideous.

  • op

    Holy sh1t she looks good!

  • Fan of real actresses

    Isn’t she adorable! What a unique actress with a unique style. Unlike some barbies who rely on their long locks or implants, Carey is an authentic beauty…. and a radiant one. Good choice of dress.

  • Lily

    Carey! I was waiting some news about her and Marcus, after their wedding! I wish I could see her wedding dress! She always fabulous!

  • Anne

    She looks stunning as always! But where’s her wedding ring?

  • snickers

    I would like to catch that mermaid

  • miss infamous

    Favorite look of the night so far

  • busted

    She doesn’t have the personality for this dress.

    it is an interesting choice.. but I don’t think it is working for her. I can’t put my finger on it.. maybe the sexy factor.

    I don’t know????

    most def. my fav dress of the Ball. it totally embodies what the Met Ball is about, it looks great on her, and like other’s have said: it’s not safe and boring. Carey Mulligan doesn’t have to rely on fake boobs, botox…all that other fake stuff to look good on the red carpet. she’s newly married, the confidence, happy glow of that is showing through, and like another poster said Mulligan is emulating Cate Blanchett. this is something Cate would’ve worn back when she was still making bold/fresh fashion choices. kudos Carey, you def. killed it.

  • Lola

    Best dressed of the night.

  • Nan

    Fav dress :) Love everything about it :)

  • JMC

    If there’s a night for outrageous couture it’s this and especially when it’s the exhibited designer. If it weren’t for the a line I’d love this but it plays into the fish shape, scale idea.

  • Vikious

    She’s AMAZING!! Love that!!

  • Mort84

    I’ve never seen her this beautiful!

  • Delphic

    @busted: If she doesn’t have the personality for this dress, then there isn’t much hope for the rest of us mere mortals! She has a bucket load of charm much more than most of the people that attended.

  • roxy

    she’s cute and that dress is sweet but even her stylists always try their best: she’s just a rather very average looking girl. whatever…
