Actress Carey Mulligan (who recently looked fabulous at the BAFTAs) was told by Vogue’s Anna Wintour to wear something short to the Oscars next months. Carey’s response? No! “I was like, ‘No! That is so not what I had in my head when I was six years old!” Carey chose Vionnet for the BAFTAs, so I’m sure we can expect something as unexpected when she walks the red carpet for the Oscars.

While a short dress would be lovely on Carey, I’m pretty sure she sees herself in something more fairytale-like. After all, this will be her fairytale moment and the vast majority of those don’t involve cocktail attire! Kudos to Carey for sticking to her guns.

Who are you excited to see on the red carpet at the Oscars, and would you ever shun Wintour’s fashion advice?
