All eyes were on Carey Mulligan last week as she stepped onto the red carpet at the 70th edition of the International Venice Film Festival. Sporting a gorgeous little black dress by Miu Miu with cute Peter Pan collar and on-trend, T-strap peep-toe sandals, the actress epitomised smart and sophisticated. Her revamp of schoolgirl chic is almost making us wish we were back in the playground! Opting for a simple yet edgy look on the accessories front, Carey completed her outfit with a pair of too cool for school tortoiseshell Prada sunnies, channelling the likes of classic LBD style icons, Audrey Hepburn and Coco Chanel.
If you love Mulligan’s stylish ensemble as much as we do, you can recreate it for just a fraction of the price with our pretty Hedonia Cheska Dress (was £65 now £30). We can’t get enough of the sweet collar and fitted shirt style, and the skater skirt will accentuate your nipped-in waist. This dress is extremely versatile too, being perfect for daytime wear with a pair of flats, or for a more formal, evening occasion with the help of accessories. In keeping with Carey’s minimalist approach, Team LBD think that this embellished flower headband by Johnny Loves Rosie (£39) is the ideal candidate.
Get the look: Hedonia Cheska Black Dress, Was £65, Now £30; Johnny Loves Rosie Beaded Leaf Headband, £39; Aftershock London Selma Floral Heels, £66.
