I Love This Dress...

Actress Carey Mulligan in Prada

What I like about it:

  • it is purple*!
  • the fabric has texture and a metallic finish (it is a lurex jacquard)
  • the style
  • the neckline
  • the fit
  • the simple black leather belt
  • it looks a lot like Vogue 8701 with a dirndl skirt and slightly longer sleeves!

Click here for more pictures of the dress in action at the Palm Springs Film Festival on Jan 8th.

*or violet, or eggplant depending on what wire service describes it. I say it's PURPLE!

I love it too. I wish I still had the body type for this style.

I agree! A fabulous dress. I'm a freelance clothing designer, but I'm thinkin' this would be a good one to recreate!
