Frock of the Week

New British 'It' actress Carey Mulligan looked absolutely gorgeous at the premiere of her new film An Education. Her strapless floral cocktail dress is Lanvin and I love her pixie hair-cut, which is a brave move for an ordinary girl, let alone an actress. I had this hairstyle for about a year in 2002 and though I thoroughly enjoyed it while I had it, it was a terrible chore to grow out and I'm not sure I'd be brave enough to do it again. I found it both liberating and exposing. On ugly days there was no opportunity to hide behind your hair!

An Education has been getting rave critical wraps. The October issue of Vanity Fair describes Carey's performance as "revelatory" and the rest of the cast is truly all star and includes American indie actor Peter Sarsgaard and the always amazing Emma Thompson. Plus it is set in early 1960's London and Paris and judging by the trailer there are going to be some divine clothes. Can't wait to check it out.
