Who: British actress Carey Mulligan who picked up the Breakthrough Performance Award

Where: At the 2011 Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala at the Palm Springs Convention Centre

Wearing: A simple-yet-elegant Prada printed cocktail paired with Cartier jewels *well they are the sponsor of course*

Verdict: I love the silhouette of this cocktail dress, and it seems to be Carey’s go-to-style, why not when she looks this good in it. I must admit though I am hoping for a lot more when it comes to the Golden Globes, Baftas and of course the Oscars – maybe something sexy, revealing and totally far-removed from her comfort zone. I seriously don’t think it will happen though.
