Carey Mulligan Channels 80s Blazer For Great Gatsby NY Screening

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...
