Red Carpet To Real Life: Carey Mulligan's Balenciaga Gown

March 18, 2024

Carey Mulligan Balenciaga Dress

When Carey Mulligan stepped onto the Oscars red carpet, she instantly skyrocketed to the top of Best Dressed lists with her classic look. She wore an elegant black and white Balenciaga dress that was a recreation of a 1951 design. It was a fitting reference back to the era of her Maestro performance (for which she was nominated) and celebrated the simple glamour of 1950s Hollywood.

Many of you agreed with me on social media that Mulligan's was one of the best looks of the evening, so imagine my delight when, while scrolling through Revolve's new arrivals, I came across this dress that looked like its modern-day, cocktail party counterpart:

While I would not necessarily call this AKNVAS x REVOLVE dress a "look for less" (it is currently listed at $695) it is no doubt considerably cheaper than a custom Balenciaga creation, and certainly more wearable for a wider swath of events. If you are on the hunt for a fun black-and-white party dress, why not channel Ms. Mulligan and take this dress out for a spin?
