Carey Mulligan in Lanvin at ‘The Great Gatsby’ NYC premiere: snoozefest?

Here are some photos from last night’s NYC premiere of The Great Gatsby. Considering the way this film is already being built up as THE EVENT of 2013 and considering that so many designers did Gatsby-themed lines associated with the film, I really was expecting a more eventful carpet. The fashion is a total snooze, which makes me think that everyone is saving their A-game for Cannes. Hopefully! Anyway, here’s the star of this mess, Carey Mulligan, in Lanvin, a surprising choice for her because she’s such a Prada girl. I initially mistook this for Prada, so I’m glad I looked it up. It’s… okay. Nothing special. Kind of basic. Just FYI: Carey IS a really small woman, but the dress does have a built-in corset, which is making her look even smaller.

Florence Welch in Miu Miu. I really dislike this dress. I “understand” why she’s wearing it – because she’s the next big thing in fashion/music/the world – but it looks like a glittery sailor suit to me. Flo can do better. She was at the premiere because she did some music for the soundtrack, just FYI.

Isla Fisher in Dolce & Gabbana. God, this is boring.

Mamie Gummer in…? I don’t know. I love her, but I hate the shoes.

Nina Dobrev came to the premiere! She wore Versace. She’s one of those women who makes couture look like it came from the mall – I think it’s because she looks perpetually 16 years old.

Jennifer Morrison in Dolce & Gabbana too. This looks like a too-fussy vintage dress. It also looks like her grandmother’s antique lace tablecloth.

  1. don't kill me i'm french says:

    the accesories miss on Carey Mulligan’s dress:she looks a miserable Droopy

  2. Launicaangelina says:

    I liked Carey’s and Nina’s dresses. The rest… No.

  3. Tessa says:

    OMG what the heck is Jennifer Morrison wearing? Tragic.

    Carey looks washed out. Not enought makeup or something and dull hair. Not the best.

  4. Anna says:

    That Lanvin is a perfect fit and better than 95% of Lanvins that make it onto the red carpet. So I’ll take it.

    I like where Isla’s dress was going with the flower print at the top, but then it became, as the Fug Girls would say, a scrolldown fug.

  5. Angie says:

    It’s crazy that Carey Mulligan is actually two years older than Florence Welch, she seems so young. I love them both.
    Carey’s dress is pretty but underwhelming and kinda boring for the world premiere of her big movie, I hope she will do better at Cannes. But she looked beautiful and adorable, look at those dimples! Love Nina too, she seems like a nice girl.

    Jennifer Lawrence was also at the premiere, but didn’t pose on the red carpet, there are only pictures of her at the after party, I think.
    I wonder if she is in New York for the MET ball as she is dior’s new girl but I didn’t saw her name on the guest list.

    I can’t stop imagining what kind of “look at me” dress Blake Lively would wear at this premiere(if she had won the role, ha). I would have been fun, now I’m kind of sad she didn’t show up and tried to steal the spotlight.

  6. Keats says:

    Oh I think Nina Dobrev makes everything look incredible. Best dressed by far.

  7. evie says:

    Carey needs to go back to being a brunette.

    • Lemony says:

      Yes! This bleached blonde haircolor is the same color as her skin. In the header pic I thought she was bald because her forehead & hair just melted into one.
      Imagine her natural brunette shade with this red dress….gorgeous.

  8. Tania says:

    Carey always looks sad. Even when she’s smiling. I think a burger might make her happy!

    • Lauren says:

      I recently watched Shame (movie), and Carey looked luminous & gorgeous. Now she looks unhealthy & frail. I suppose stress could be a factor or she is succumbing to Hollywood starvation standards. My hubby does not think any of these women are attractive. Miserable-malnourished with a mask of makeup. What a sad world.

  9. Sisi says:

    all of the dresses are meh, how disappointing :(

  10. Marianne says:

    Carey’s look needs a necklace.

  11. ALG says:

    Everything about her is so basic.

  12. Elly says:

    Carey is a beautiful woman, but she is sooo boring and colourless… interchangeable

  13. judd says:

    Cary has been looking depressed since she married.

  14. truthful says:

    that last dress died when I saw that extra frill around the bottom.

    Leo better bring it in this. Carey is really tiny, it shows here.

  15. Karen says:

    Carey looks so miserable. I want to give her a hug. She’s so tiny and fragile looking.

  16. Chrissy says:

    Is this seriously what the women brought to THE GREAT Gatsby premiere? There doesn’t seem to be much hope for Cannes.

  17. lucy2 says:

    I like Carey’s dress a lot, but she does look a bit washed out. Still cute though.
    Isla is so pretty, but I don’t like the dress, especially the bottom half.

    I think Nina always looks really good, but that twisted, leaning pose would make me throw my back out .

  18. Murphy says:

    I can’t quite put my finger on it but something with Carey’s hair or make up is making go from “Hollywood skinny” to “starving orphan”

  19. j.eyre says:

    I love Carey’s dress – I love the structure, the color – everything. But she is not carrying it well. There is too much space between the top of the dress and her shoulder which pronounces how slight that area is. I think a bold statement piece necklace would have taken away from the dress so it was right to leave it off. I think it was just an ill-match between dress and wearer.

    I really like Nina’s dress and I think she looks nice in it.

    And I think Flo looks kind of fun. I could not get away with that outfit but – it looks fun.

    I am so excited about this movie I can hardly stand it.

  20. mel says:

    Carey looks miserable…gee whiz….a smile is a positive accessory. All the rest…blah. Boring.

  21. Sid says:

    She looks good, a bit boring though. It’s crazy how that blonde makes her look way older in pics when in person she looks like a teenager.
    You people are so used to cake faces and tans that can’t appreciate natural skin tones anymore.
    Anyways I prefer them talented and interchangeable than those grinch worthy talentless walking cliques we get so often now days.

  22. Aria says:

    Carey has lost a lot of weight and doesn’t look healthy.

    I love Nina’s look. I think she wears the hell out of that dress.

  23. May says:

    About Nina, is probably a CW side effect. Just like Lively, she makes couture look cheap, but I would KILL to have a body like hers.

  24. boredbrit says:

    I don’t think her hair is doing Carey any favours. I love Isla’s dress.

  25. MisJes says:

    Ugh, Mamie Gummer. Living proof that talent isn’t handed down through genetics.

    What a fug fest these dresses are.

  26. Jacqueline says:

    Carey looks terrible. She has a receding hairline. At least crack a smile, geez.

    Nina looks the best and most period-appropriate. Why didn’t more of the ladies go for a fun 1920′s vibe?

  27. mercy says:

    Flo looks the most stylish and sophisticated to my eyes. Carey looks like she just got out of the shower. Hair, makeup, dress all boring. Isla’s makeup is pretty and so is the print of her dress, but I don’t like the design. I was expecting more glam all around for Gatsby.

  28. Best dressed Carey and Nina…never thought I would say that

  29. amilu says:

    I actually like Isla Fisher’s dress. (Or maybe I just like it on Isla Fisher.)

    I love Carey’s dress, too, and I think her problems are from the neck up. With that easy hair and natural face, it looks like she’s going to brunch, not a movie premiere.

  30. Asiyah says:

    I don’t like any of these dresses. And Carey Mulligan looks like she has some serious issues with depression. I want to hug her and never let her go (pun intended).

  31. Nanz says:

    OH GOD. I thought Mamie Gummet was Paris Effing Hilton at first glance. What is WRONG with me?!

  32. MisJes says:

    I just saw the Viktor & Rolf pantsuit Jennifer Lawrence wore to the after party, and I WANT IT. SO BAD. It’s gorgeous!

    She’s really pretty without make-up too. Sigh.

  33. FLORC says:

    Everyone is talking about Mrs. mumford, but what about Jennifer m. Anyone who’s seen house or once upon knows she’s stick thin. This dress makes her look so wide.

  34. I Choose Me says:

    I think Nina Dobrev looks best of them all. Mamie’s outfit is wth? Not keen on Carey’s outfit but her smile is a wonderful accessory. I love her.

  35. mac says:

    “She’s one of those women who makes couture look like it came from the mall”

    I disagree. Nina is always impeccably dressed and looks great in my opinion.

  36. Beatriz says:

    The first thing that popped into my head when I saw Florence Welch’s dress was a dancing Frank Sinatra in a sailor uniform (sorry, couldn’t help it!).

  37. Grant says:

    I disagree, I think Nina Dobrev looks breathtaking.
