A Celebrity Post

I never thought that I would do a post about a celebrity on my blog, but alas; here I am. Its not that I dislike celebrities, its just that overall, I don't keep up with them very well.
But I must admit, Carey Mulligan has caught my eye. A few weeks after I watched 'An Education,' (which, by the way, I thought she did an incredible job acting in) I looked up an interview with Carey mulligan on youtube. And as is so easy to do on youtube, I ended up watching one after another. I was surprised at how down-to-earth she was and how easily she gave up that charming giggle. I tend to be drawn to celebrities that I feel like I could hang out with and miss mulligan is definitely one of these.
I also like that she relies on her talent, rather than her sex appeal to establish her place in celebrityville. I had to laugh when i got this issue of vanity fair, where most the other starlets are putting out the sexy vibe, carey is wearing her classic little smirky smile, dimple and all. She seems quite serious about her acting career and carries herself with class and an almost demure sensibility.

It's probably pretty obvious that I love her haircut. She was definitely one of my more current inspirations for getting the pixie (I especially love her 1920's Marcel wave hairdo in the first picture below). And, although I wish I could get her in real vintage (Shop at Adelaide's, Carey!) , I feel the silhouettes she chooses have an extremely vintage feel, drawing heavily from the 40's and 50's.


Thanks so much for reading, and indulging my celeberity crush,

maria

  3. Definitely a celebrity I would love to dress and quite possibly undress depending on the alchohol served and which way my husband was looking;)

  4. I'm also as a long-time wearer of the pixie hair style, like you, and I simply I adore Carey. I think it's wonderful that someone with their own unique and quirky style has become an "it" girl.

  6. I adore Carey Mulligan! I've seen her in several shows and she's wonderful in all of them! I think she looks amazing with her pixie haircut, though I don't think I'd ever be brave enough to get one like hers!

  7. aww I've seen 3 movies with her in them so far, but she really does have such a cute little smirk and giggle! I love that yellow dress. I don't really keep up with whatever is going on in the entertainment world either. . .other than Robert Downey Jr. . .
