And there we were thinking The Great Gatsby was all about the 20s glamour... Carey Mulligan obviously decided she'd had quite enough of that at a special pre-Met Ball screening of the film in NY - and opted for an 80s-inspired ensemble, instead.
The cropped jacket featured one white lapel against a black backdrop, and featured satin panels on the waist and arms.
She paired the blazer with tailored black trousers and an enormous pair of peep-toe heels.
What do you think? Loving the 80s twist, or bring back the Roaring 20s?
Other stars at the screening included Kylie Minogue, who opted for a disastrous floral ensemble, and Katy Perry, who also chose an unusual look for the event.
Perhaps Carey's blazer isn't so bad after all...
