Carey Mulligan Looks Sharp on the Met Gala Red Carpet

Carey Mulligan at the Met Gala 2013.

Carey Mulligan went for a sleek, streamlined look tonight on the Met Gala red carpet. The Great Gatsby actress wore a design by Alexander Wang, who just took the reins at Balenciaga this season. The dress featured a midriff-baring panel and a nod to the night's theme, Punk: Chaos to Couture, with its safety-pin detail on the chest.

Carey has been in NYC lately prepping for the release of The Great Gatsby. At the premiere of the movie last week, she told us the elaborate costumes on set made her nervous and even admitted to accidentally breaking some pieces of jewelry during shooting. Carey's outfit tonight was a far cry from the flapper-inspired costumes she wears as Daisy Buchanan in the film. Tell us what you thought of her choice, and the rest of the many red carpet looks from the event, in our 2013 Met Gala polls!
