Just when I thought Carey Mulligan couldn’t show us any more chic style on the red carpet, she showed up at the Australian premiere of her latest movie, ‘The Great Gatsby’, wearing a refreshing outfit.

Among the long-gown-clad women at the event, my eyes zeroed in on Carey. Who knew pants could look more chic than gowns on the red carpet?

What’s really so inspiring about the actress’ ensemble is that she has worn her pair of pants many times already. She seems to have no qualms recycling an outfit, and that makes her a winner in my book. You can always trust her to create something new from the clothes she has already worn and to trick us into believing that every piece is entirely new.

Carey had worn this pair of high-waisted Lanvin pants with a tuxedo-like jacket, but for this recent event, she went for the retro look. She was like a modern-day pin-up girl in her Nina Ricci bustier top and Saint Laurent Mary Jane heels. It was a very minimalist look, especially since Carey didn’t even bother with accessories — just a sleek black leather belt and a pair of drop earrings.

I don’t know about you, but this is an ensemble I wouldn’t hesitate to copy. It is form-flattering. The cinched waist creates shape, and the bustier top shows off just enough skin to make this look tastefully interesting.
