Yea, Nay, Or Eh? All That’s Fit To Print
When Carey Mulligan shot from obscurity to insta-fame in An Education, it seemed that the fashion world had found its next style-star ingenue. She was cute, she was chic—all Seberg bob and real, no-kidding acting chops—and designers all took notice and started sending dresses. But as she hit more and more high-profile events, Mulligan seemed to sartorially disappoint as often as she delighted (ahem, the Met ball). There’s even been some dispute around our offices about how stylish she actually is. Our faith may waver occasionally, but Miuccia Prada’s hasn’t. Mulligan continues to step out in Miu Miu and Prada, and when she touched down at Cannes to promote Wall Street 2, she gave us an early look at Prada’s new print collection, which hits stores later this month. Some may disagree—some, even, in the next cubicle over—but this is the kind of look that’s perfect for the pixie-ish actress. The archival print feels easy and natural on her, and the vintage-inspired look (the flared skirt, the classic Ferragamo pumps) feels more modern than some of her more contemporary choices. So what do you think? Oui or non—is this Cannes done right?
