Two women stood out at the ELLE Women festivities in Los Angeles, not only because they’re visually stunning but also because they were wearing colors deemed out-of-the-ordinary for a cold autumn day. Carey Mulligan and Miranda Kerr opted to wear baby blue pants suits for the ELLE events they attended.
This definitely calls for a comparison. Who do you think looked better in their powder blue attire?
1. Miranda Kerr

The 32-year-old model bared her toned stomach in a baby blue bandeau top with a belt embellishment. She balanced the show of flesh by covering up in a blazer and matching pants from Calvin Klein Collection. She accessorized with a pair of similarly-hued Christian Louboutin “Dorissima” pumps, Christian Louboutin “Fiocco” box clutch, Swarvoski stone mini bangle and Swarovski duo pendant wing necklace.
2. Carey Mulligan

The 30-year-old actress sported a Marc Jacobs Spring 2016 outfit (which explains the springy color). Carey was all decently covered up with only a hint of cleavage to give some sass to her look. She accessorized with a pair of grey d’orsay pumps.
We have mixed feelings about both looks. The bandeau top Miranda Kerr teamed up with her pants suit seemed ill-fitting and detracted from the classy appeal of the suit. We would have preferred a more covered-up finish to this look.
Carey’s outfit is definitely a big change from her usual monotonous outfits and we laud her for making a different sartorial decision. This outfit though, while not terrible, seems a little unpolished. Perhaps it’s because of the awkwardly rolled up sleeves of her blazer or her washed-out make-up. We would have liked this better with a bolder lip color to get rid of some of the paleness of her face.
What about you? What are your thoughts on Carey and Miranda’s baby blue pants suit outfits?
