☆ UPDATE ☆ We don't like to say we told you so but: an impeccable source tells us that Carey Mulligan did NOT get married in a Versace gown as originally reported but chose to wore a Prada design. Yup, it looks like Grazia Daily's predictions were correct! *smug* We've long hailed Carey as Miuccia's muse — the ingénue's elegant aesthetic is the perfect fit for the classic brand and she's forever choosing a Prada number for her red carpet outings. Now doesn't that make MUCH more sense? So come on Carey, give us a peek.
Carey Mulligan in Vionnet
Hands up if you were at a wedding this weekend? Yup, us too and nope, we weren't at Carey Mulligan's (the invite must've got lost in the post). But Sienna Miller, Jake Gyllenhaal and Colin Firth WERE there to see the Brit actress say 'I do' to Marcus Mumford at a top-secret ceremony on Saturday.
According to the Mail Online, the service was conducted by the groom's vicar father in front of 200 guests in a converted barn on Stream Farm at Bridgwater, Somerset. Adele sang, Colin gave a speech and mega photographer Rankin was on hand to take pictures of the Big Day so here's hoping at least one snap will emerge to satisfy our wedding-dress-hungry eyes. For now, we know that Ms Mulligan-Mumford wore a full-length ivory dress while her eight bridesmaids were kitted out in turquoise knee-length prom dresses with matching heels. Pwetty!
Versace's wedding-tastic designs
Rumours are swirling that Carey's dress was a Versace creation — surprising, no? Donatella's designs tend to be super-glam, slinky and satin sexy with thigh-high slits and plunging necklines that are in opposition to the actress's subdued style.
Her recent fashion oeuvre proves Carey is known for accessorising her cutsey pixie crop with full-skirted '50s-esque dresses by Prada, fuss-free shifts from Chanel or minimalist gowns by her favourite Brit designers, so we knew there'd be no meringue fluffiness, but Grazia Daily had not expected a Versace stunner. In fact, we'd imagined she'd put in an order to her pal Miuccia Prada (who dressed her for the Oscar Awards as well as the Met Ball in 2010) or maybe turn to the draped delights of Vionnet as she's done in the past...
The chosen dress, however, is not your usual Versace fare — it's described as simple and backless with V-straps, suggesting that Donatella played down her signature va-va-voom for the occasion. Will the Italian designer do the same for Angelina Jolie's wedding to Brad Pitt? As long as there's a cheeky slit for her 'legsploits', she'll be the perfect lady for the job.
