Carey Mulligan at the Met Gala

Glimmering in Prada, the new Mrs. Mumford was the first to arrive at the Met Gala tonight… and, boy, did she leave an impression. Since being showered in sequins, Carey kept the rest simple and chic with satin pumps and minimal jewelry. Tonight’s event honors the new “Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations” exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum’s Costume Institute. The exhibit runs from May 10- August 19, 2012 and is a guaranteed must see.

To emulate this look, I used Gold Coin by Revlon, Tuck Me In by Ginger+Liz, and Lucerne-tainly Look Marvelous by OPI.

To get these ladyfingers:

1. Using a generous amount of polish, paint a thick layer of gold at the top of your nail

2. With your silver, paint the center portion of your nail grabbing the gold polish as you paint downwards

3. Repeat using a dark pewter grabbing onto your silver

4. Top it off with top coat
