Fashion Police at the 2010 Oscars: Carey Mulligan in Prada

Carey Mulligan at the 2010 Oscars

We wrap up tonight’s Oscar coverage with Best Actress nominee Carey Mulligan, who wore a black, beaded Prada dress, with a hemline designed to show off her shoes (also by Prada)

Is she a contender for Best Dressed, as well as Best Actress, though?

    I love the dress… would’ve preferred it with more delicate looking shoes, though…

    I actually love the shoes in particular. The dress is great, but I think the shoes really work well because the shape echoes the v’s in the tailoring of the dress.

    The dress is lovely but can’t over how WRONG the shoes are! Urgh look horribly cheap too!
    Should have worn delicate high satin pumps with or without platform.

    Don’t like this one: the dress looks too short, and the beading is spoilt by looking like it’s based on some keys / cutlery theme.

    I love everything about this dress; the fact that she is wearing clunky shoes totally works. I like the little picture frame affect the short hem line at the front creates for the shoes.

    I agree that the shoes work and think she looks SPLENDID.

    She looks like a little girl wearing mom’s clothes.

    LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE this entire outfit. Hair, makeup, earrings, dress, shoes… everything. Darn it, stop being so utterly gorgeous. I’m already twitching with envy…

    I really like this outfit. However, the hem needs some work. I love the line of it, but I don’t like how I can see the obvious stitchline. That only works if the hem is actually a fabric in a contrasting color. But overall, very beautiful.

    Is it wrong that I don’t like heels with this shape of a hem? It just looks like the stars are hanging and their feet are pointing down because of THAT. I don’t know how flats would look though, I admit… But I don’t want to look like a dangling ghost that had offed myself in a bad way.

    I’m not crazy about this one. My first thought was that it looked like a glamourous mullet dress, shorter in the front than the back. 🙁

    Love this dress, but she doesn’t look confident in it. Also, boots or Doc Marten’s would be more suitable – to finish a statement. Otherwise, use small and elegant hidh-hills…

    Agree with Ally – everything’s right here. Love all the hardware stitched to the dress – makes it more edgy than many of the other dresses on show. And it’s always nice to see short hair for a change!

    The dress is wearing the wearer. It just doesn’t suit. And the comment about the hem being badly stitched is spot on. It looks as though some last minute adjustments were made and the seamstress ran out of time.

    If the dress were a touch longer and the shoes a bit more delicate the full effect would be much better. Also she needs to be more confident, she looks like she is trying on swimsuits with a critical friend.

    I don’t mind the shoes as much as the length of the skirt. I would have preferred it full length or even shorter in the front.
