Carey Mulligan - Met Ball 2012

Carey Mulligan shines on the red carpet at the 2012 Met Ball held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday (May 7) in New York City.

The 26-year-old newlywed wore all Prada – gold and silver degradĂ© metal paillettes scaled halter neck dress, shoes, and bag.

“They sent sketches and I was blown away by them,” Carey shared. “I’m really honored to be wearing it.”

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    @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.

    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…
