Mudbound is making the film festival circuit rounds having had its world premiere at the Toronto Film Festival and the film will also make appearances at the New York Film Festival and the London Film Festival as well. I am hearing awards season buzz for at least Carey Mulligan so I am really interested to see what the rest of this promo tour will bring. When she presented Suffragette two years ago I fell back in love with Carey Mulligan and after a quiet year she has returned in great style. I have a feeling that with the awards buzz surrounding her performance that Carey will continue to be on top of her style game. I went to Gucci for the New York Film Festival premiere of Mudbound and this gorgeous dusty pastel flapper style cocktail dress from the brand’s Cruise 2018 collection for Carey because this dress is just simple glamour at its finest. My fear is that because she stared in The Great Gatsby that Carey may have an aversion to wearing such a flapper inspired dress on the red carpet. A sleek updo, smokey eye, nude lip, vintage diamond drop earrings, contrasting dark fuchsia velvet Gucci ‘Dionysus’ clutch, and a pair of amazing silver Gucci ‘Allie’ crystal and pearl embellished metallic sandals would definitely make this another amazing look for Carey. When it has come to her red carpet looks this year Mary J. Blige has pretty much only worn black on the red carpet. I don’t see that changing anytime soon. For the Mudbound premiere at the New York Film Festival I went for classic glamour with this black Brandon Maxwell Fall 2017 RTW sweetheart neck dress which features pleated detail and a side split. I think that for the New York Film Festival that this simple yet very glamorous dress is perfect and I think that Mary with her curves would really make it a sultry moment on the red carpet. I would add some color with a pair of red knotted velvet Tom Ford sandals so that Mary isn’t wearing head to toe black. A sleek hairstyle, smokey eye, red lip, and a black Edie Parker ‘Jean’ acrylic clutch would ensure that Mary has a perfect film festival premiere ensemble.
The 2017 New York Film Festival opens September 28, 2017 and runs through October 15, 2017.
