The 35-year-old star, who’s nominated for a Best Actress award for her work in Promising Young Woman, owned the red carpet in a sweeping two-piece sequin gold bandeau top and sweeping skirt by Valentino at the 93rd Annual Academy Awards, which are taking place at the Dolby Theater and Union Station in Los Angeles this Sunday. And while the star’s look took on the essence of a fairytale princess with its ballgown skirt— we couldn't help but feel like her ensemble had a uniquely modern feel.
Mulligan -- who went through a number of transformations in her Oscar-nominated film -- has been one to watch on the red carpet during this year’s awards show circuit, and tonight was no exception.
In addition to Mulligan’s 2021 Oscar nomination (which is the second in her career), Promising Young Woman is nominated for five awards including Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Original Screenplay. The film follows the actor as Cassie, a young woman who, after a traumatic event, has a vendetta against those who’ve crossed her.
Prior to hitting the red carpet, Mulligan's makeup artist, Georgie Eisdell, shared photos of her getting all dolled up and putting on the final touches.
