Carey Mulligan Forks Out Prada

-------

Carey MulliganJudging by the archival looks she wore in The Great Gatsby, not to mention her dolled-up press tour, Carey Mulligan knows how to wear a Prada gown. However, after learning about Mulligan’s less chic (albeit hilarious) encounter with the brand pre-Gatsby, we’re almost surprised that Mrs. Prada was so generous with her wares. Mulligan confessed to British Voguethat during her first time at the Oscars, she wore a strapless black Prada number embellished with tiny utensils. And after a few drinks, the actress couldn’t resist the urge to peel off the ornaments. ” I got drunk at the end of the night and started ripping them off and giving them as presents to people, so that was fun,” she said. “I’m pretty sure that was the point of it—that’s how Miuccia meant for it to go, I’m sure.” Unfortunately, it’s unlikely that Mulligan will be at the Oscars this year, given that Gatsby‘s not nominated, but the next time she is, we’d like a seat at her awards table.
