Felicia from Maestro

Maestro is a film directed by Bradley Cooper who also stars as the protagonist, Leonard Bernstein. The film is a biopic of Leonard Bernstein’s life and rise to fame as a successful conductor. Carey Mulligan in the film plays Felicia Montealegre, an actress and wife of Bernstein. We get to see her life alongside him as they grow old and face different struggles.

Earlier in the film, when Felicia is younger at a party, we see her wear an elegant outfit that features a light blue dress paired with 3 strands of pearls. Later she wears a recognizable look of a tweed blazer and skirt with a pink bow blouse.

Pamela from Saltburn

Saltburn is a new film by Emerald Fennel that follows Oliver Quick as he stays in his rich classmate Felix’s estate, and a series of horrifying events occur. Pamela is a friend of Felix’s mother Elspeth and is at Saltburn in the beginning of the film when Oliver arrives, and is played by Carey Mulligan.

Although we only see a short glimpse of Pamela’s style, it’s one that leaves a strong and memorable impression. She has blunt bangs, heavy makeup, lots of pearls and English-inspired jewelry pieces. To recreate some of her looks, wear a black knitted sleeve top over a black dress. Another is a black dress on which you can sew on small pearls to resemble buttons down the front, wear a ruffled Dickey collar underneath, lots of pearl bracelets and a ginger wig that could be styled like Pamela’s with short cut bangs.

Jean from Inside Llewyn Davis

Jean is a character played by Carey Mulligan from the film Inside Llewyn Davis, by Joel and Ethan Coen. Inside Llewyn Davis is set in 1960s New York City and follows a folk singer named Llewyn Davis who struggles to find success again in the music world. Jean is someone in Llewyn’s life that accuses him of being the father to her child, and he often goes to her and her husband for a place to stay or to borrow money. She is married to Jim, who she sings with at the Gaslight Cafe along with Troy Nelson. This trio is inspired by the group Peter, Paul, and Mary.

Jean along with the other characters, fit into their environment perfectly with the colors and textures of their costumes with lots of jackets and textured sweaters. The film is very bleak and muted, so you won’t find many brightly colored costumes. Jean sticks to sweaters in her wardrobe, like the two ribbed texture gray and orange ones, both with a turtleneck. The other sweater she wears in her apartment is a muted blue one, with a very brushed texture and not as thick as the two when she goes out. She also has an army-green coat with a plaid lining, which you can emphasize even more by layering a flannel shirt underneath it.

Irene from Drive

Irene from Drive

There is no real happy ending for Irene (played by Carey Mulligan). At least not with Driver. With her husband dead and Driver gone, Irene can only focus on doing what’s best for her son. That’s hard enough when you live in the world that Irene lives in.

Irene is the perfect closet cosplay option. She is a normal person with a closet like many other women. For Standard’s return party she wears a patterned tank top, a maxi skirt, and sandals. And, of course, the gold chain necklace she wears through most of the movie and her signature blonde bob.

Cassie Thomas from Promising Young Woman

Cassie Thomas from Promising Young Woman

In Promising Young Woman, Cassandra “Cassie” Thomas (Carey Mulligan) is a med school dropout who now takes revenge on predatory men by pretending to be drunk at clubs and bars, letting men take her home, and revealing her sobriety when they try to take advantage of her. In her latest act of vengeance, Cassie poses as a stripper dressed in a nurse outfit to reach her target at his bachelor party.

Daisy Buchanan

Daisy Buchanan (Carey Mulligan) is the love interest of Jay Gatsby in the film “The Great Gatsby.” She is portrayed as a vapid socialite. The film takes place in the 1920’s, so she is clothed in glamorous dresses, furs, and pearls.
