The recent hype around Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby is making its leading actress Carey Mulligan the muse of the moment.

Although her personal style is not as elaborate as her 1920s-inspired character – Mulligan prefers to keep it clean and classic – she always dresses with refined elegance, just like Daisy Buchanan.

Known for her sleek monochrome looks, she is a big supporter of the classic LBD – with Balenciaga a personal favourite.

However, Mulligan is still brave enough to break traditions, rocking tailored suits and jumpsuits on the red carpet.

She keeps it simple with her beauty choices, successfully pulling off the pixie-do or neatly slicking back her locks for a no-fuss look that still makes an impact. Her choice of make-up also proves that less is more, letting her natural beauty shine through.

Monochrome is a top trend this Winter, so it is no wonder that Mulligan has recently become a fashion muse, gracing the pages (and even scoring some front covers) of major fashion magazines including Vogue.
